President Obama is under the gun when it comes to Mayor Bloomberg and his crusade against illegal weapons.
Bloomberg, generally considered a White House ally, put Obama on notice after he fired off a letter to the White House this month where he reportedly accused the president of dragging his feet when it comes to gun control, according to a report today.
In the March 3 letter sent from Bloomberg's coalition, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the mayor points to a separate report the group sent the Obama administration last August, which laid out 40 recommendations to "improve enforcement of existing gun laws," according to The Huffington Post.
The letter was co-signed by Boston Mayor Tom Menino.
"We appreciate the ... consideration of the report, but this is an urgent matter: further delay will almost certainly result in the needless loss of innocent lives, including many children. Mr. President, the time has come for action," the mayors wrote, according to the letter obtained by The Huffington Post.
The White House did not immediately have a comment in regards to the letter.
One would think that a liberal ideologue like Barry would be on top of this matter, but Americans needed health care reform, not safety from crime.
