700 American Mayors Demand Presidential Candidates Address Gun Violence

August 5, 2012

Let us await the silence from all major campaigns…..

A bipartisan coalition of 700 mayors continues to press both presidential candidates on their plan to reduce gun violence – the same day another mass shooting is shaking a community in the suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisc.

In a major Sunday morning ad buy, Mayors Against Illegal Guns released a television commercial featuring survivors of the 2011 mass shooting in Tuscon, Ariz., that left six people dead and 13 others wounded, including Representative Gabrielle Giffords.

Shortly after the group’s ad was first broadcast, media reports began to emerge Sunday morning about a shooting at a Sikh Temple in a suburb of Milwaukee. Police say at least seven people are dead, including the gunman. Details are still emerging about the shooting.

The confluence of events seemed to underscore the ad’s core message, demanding a plan from the presidential candidates about how each would prevent the types of catastrophes that have unfolded in Tuscon, Ariz., Aurora, Colo., and now Oak Creek, Wisc.
