MAYORS TARGET GUN VIOLENCE

NEW YORK - A group of mayors from across the country met at Gracie Mansion today, the official residence of New York City Mayor Eric Adams, to delve into the continuing problem of gun violence.

They unveiled what they hope would be a powerful new method to target gun manufactures and gun sellers.

Mayor Adams said "they are no different than cigarette manufacturers of yesterday, knowing their products produce a dangerous outcome continuing to lie despite the facts."

The mayors said they have begun pooling illegal gun information into a database operated by the Michael Bloomberg backed group Everytown for Gun Safety.

A preliminary sampling of the data shows gun manufacturers Glock, Taurus, Smith and Wesson, Ruger and ghost gun maker Polymer 80 produce about half of the illegal guns on the street. Adams said "the $9 billion-gun manufacturing industry have said they are going to put profit over public safety."

The mayors said they will use the database to launch lawsuits against the gun makers for advertising the weapons and for creating a public nuisance.
