Pryor: ‘I don’t take gun advice from the Mayor of New York City’

Politico – by Ginger Gibson

Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) pushed back against television ads from a group backed by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg encouraging lawmakers to support gun control bills.

“I don’t take gun advice from the mayor of New York City,” Pryor said in a statement. “I listen to Arkansans.”  

The $12 million ad campaign, which depicts gun owners supporting background checks, is being run in conservative states represented by Democrats and states represented by Republicans who the group said, “they can most influence the upcoming Senate vote.”

Pryor, who is up for reelection next year, is one of a handful of Democrats believed to be unlikely to support gun-control legislation.

  1. I don’t think anyone takes gun advice from the mayor of NYC. When you’ve got the NYPD who can’t shoot someone 4 feet away, I don’t think Bloominidiot is the man to listen to about gun advice. But that’s just me.

  2. The background check they’re pushing isn’t just a name check for a criminal record or a Psych history. It will lead to some sort of registry, which is illegal regarding the Constitution. Don’t be fooled. Read every word of what’s in the bill.
