"We want to see gun use eliminated"

In an interview with TPM published Thursday, Bill Thompson, one of the three leading candidates in the New York City mayoral election, discussed how getting guns off the streets is a major priority for him.

“If you look at his fight against guns, that’s something that has particular meaning in New York City,” Thompson said of current Mayor Michael Bloomberg. “I know it’s been a national fight, but particular meaning in New York City given gun violence in communities of color, in black and Latino communities. We want to see gun use eliminated. It’s cost us too many of our children.”
