Mayors Against Illegal Guns To Air Ads During Congressional Recess In Georgia Demanding Senators Chambliss And Isakson Take Action To Reduce Gun Violence

Ads Part of National Campaign Calling on Political Leaders to Support Commonsense Reforms; Polls Show Overwhelming National Support for Background Checks

NEW YORK, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Mayors Against Illegal Guns today announced that ads will begin to air in Georgia today demanding that Senator Saxby Chambliss and Senator Johnny Isakson take action to pass commonsense gun reforms. Ads will air in key states during the upcoming Congressional recess and can be found here: www.demandaction.org/recessads

"These ads bring the voices of Americans – who overwhelmingly support comprehensive and enforceable background checks – into the discussion to move Senators to immediately take action to prevent gun violence," said Mayors Against Illegal Guns Co-Chair and New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. "We demanded a plan and we got one.  We demanded a vote and we'll get one.  Now we're doing what we can to pass a bill that will save lives."

"While they are home for this recess, members of Congress will hear directly from their constituents who support sensible gun law reforms like expanded background checks," said Mayors Against Illegal Guns Co-Chair and Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino. "The legislation is on the table – it's time for our leaders in Washington to act."  

"Survivors and family members of the victims of gun violence deserve and want more than just condolences from our elected leaders," said gun violence survivor and Georgian Letitie Clark.  "Now is the time for action. We can and should prevent more tragic gun violence with the legislation currently in Congress. You've given us your condolences now give us your vote."
