Mayors Against Illegal Guns

Mayors Against Illegal Guns is a national, bipartisan coalition of mayors working to make America’s communities safer by keeping illegal guns out of dangerous hands. Co-founded in 2006 by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, the coalition has grown from a committed group of 15 members to more than 950 mayors from 45 states, including Republicans, Democrats, and Independents, from major cities and small towns around the country.  
"New Orleans has a higher rate of gun violence, more so than most places in the country, and we would love to support the effort to curb gun violence here,”  “What we’re doing would help in that effort.”
