NEW YORK, April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Mayors Against Illegal Guns announced today that Americans in seven states will gather today and Saturday for "Shame on You" protests against senators who voted with the Washington gun lobby and against the 90 percent of Americans who support commonsense, life-saving background checks for all gun sales. 

This week Senators Max Baucus (MT), Richard Burr (NC), Saxby Chambliss (GA), Dan Coats (IN), Jeff Flake (AZ), Dean Heller (NV), John Isakson (GA) and Rob Portman (OH) were among those who voted against bipartisan legislation proposed by Senators Joe Manchin and Pat Toomey that would have closed the loopholes that make it easy for criminals and dangerous people to get guns.

About Mayors Against Illegal Guns Since its creation in April 2006, Mayors Against Illegal Guns has grown from 15 members to more than 900 mayors from across the country. We have more than 1.5 million grassroots supporters, making us the largest gun violence prevention advocacy organization in the country.  The bipartisan coalition, co-chaired by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, has united the nation's mayors around these common goals: protecting communities by holding gun offenders accountable; demanding access to crime gun trace data that is critical to law enforcement efforts to combat gun trafficking; and working with legislators to fix weaknesses and loopholes in the law that make it far too easy for criminals and other dangerous people to get guns.  Learn more at  www.mayorsagainstillegalguns.org.
