On a broadcast of Nightline to air on December 21, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg blamed the NRA, in part, for the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut (video below).
Bloomberg said: “In fact, Connecticut is because of some of their [the NRA's] actions... Well, I hold you and me responsible…I don’t absolve you or me, all of us.”
“We have let our society degenerate, our country degenerate to the point where we have a murder rate that you cannot compare it to other countries."
Bloomberg added that he would like to ban all automatic and semi-automatic guns, and high-capacity magazines, reports RawStory.com.
He also slammed President Obama for signing a law in 2009 that allows people to carry guns in national parks and on Amtrak.
