Vice President Joe Biden guaranteed Mayor Thomas M. Menino a leading national gun control advocate that President Obama will pass sweeping firearms reforms by the end of the month, the mayor said today.
He said, Tommy, I guarantee you, well get it done by the end of January, Menino said at City Hall today. Theyre going to get it done.
The mayor, who has been recovering from a host of ailments for the past two months, said Biden called him several times while he was in the hospital, including a call after the Newtown school massacre to discuss gun control.
.Menino and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg co-chair the 500-mayor-strong Mayors Against Illegal Guns and have called for national gun reform in the wake of last months Sandy Hook school killings.
I understand the second amendment, the right to bear arms. But I dont understand how young kids should be able to get guns, he said, referring to the plague of urban gang violence largely involving young males.
Menino added that the president has no excuse not to pass strong (gun reform) legislation, since he is in his last term and doesnt have to worry about angering pro-gun voters or the National Rifle Association.
Its time to get this moving and moving quickly, Menino said. Lets do it now.

How easy would it be for the gangs to import tons of full auto weapons? They import tons of coke and you can't stop it. Fn stupid liberals.
