At a press conference in Washington D.C. today, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg attacked the NRA, called on Florida to repeal its ‘Stand Your Ground’ law and for other states to repeal or prevent similar laws (video below).
Mayor Bloomberg said: "Florida was the NRA’s first target, and it succeeded in pushing the bill through the legislature over the objections of leading police and law enforcement…"
"In reality, the NRA’s leaders weren’t interested in public safety. They were interesting in promoting a culture where people take the law into their own hands and face no consequences for it. Let’s call that by its real name: vigilantism."
