Mayors Against Illegal Guns To Air Ads During Congressional Recess In Pennsylvania Demanding Senator Pat Toomey 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



Coalition Also Organizing National Day to Demand Action on Thursday, March 28 with More than 100 Events Across the Country; www.DemandAction.org

NEW YORK, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Mayors Against Illegal Guns today announced that ads will begin to air in Pennsylvania today demanding that Senator Pat Toomey 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."  

"Congress has an unprecedented opportunity to reduce crime across the country by passing no-brainer gun reform," said Lancaster Mayor Rick Gray.  "Harsher gun trafficking penalties and an expanded and enforceable background check system will make it harder for felons, domestic abusers, and other dangerous people to get their hands on firearms. And that could be the difference between life or death."

"No politician can look me -- or any other survivor of gun violence -- in the eyes and say that requiring background checks for all gun sales won't save lives," said gun violence survivor and Pennsylvanian Fay Dawson. "It's time for politicians to decide whether they value political endorsements over the lives of their constituents."
