CBS) JERSEY CITY, N.J. Mayor Michael Bloomberg and a coalition of 214 mayors are using the Virginia Tech massacre to pressure Congress to give local cops the information they need to trace illegal guns used in crimes.

CBS 2 has also learned that they're also launching a TV ad campaign starting Sunday.

"We're fighting criminals and illegal guns. Why is Congress fighting us?" Bloomberg said Wednesday.

The ads will start running in four days in New York, Washington and the congressional districts of key gun advocates.

"I don’t want my officers to have their hands tied when it comes to having to deal with the issue of illegal guns for criminals," Bloomberg said.

The ads are funded by Bloomberg, who said he will personally spend whatever it takes to stop a bill that would allow the feds to withhold crucial information on illegal guns needed by local cops.

"In terms of how much money to spend I don't know," Bloomberg said. "The last time I was on a campaign I spent $85 million."

Bloomberg said the Virginia Tech massacre that resulted in 33 deaths should get everyone behind his illegal gun crusade.

"Every day 30 Americans are murdered," he said. "If one day is cause for you to think, what about 365 days?"

Carole Stiller is with the Million Mom March, a group with members who have lost loved ones to gun violence. She said she doesn’t think the Virginia Tech shooter should have had the right to get a gun.

"Because he wanted it and it was his right to have it," Stiller said. "Well, it's our right and it was the 32 other people's rights to not have someone come on campus and shoot them."

The Virginia Tech shooting also reverberated in the presidential race. Trying to woo conservatives, the formerly anti-gun Rudy Giuliani said he supports the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

But Democrats Hillary Clinton, John Edwards and Barack Obama steered clear of the issue, saying only that the massacre was a tragedy.

Of course the dem candidates steered clear. wasn't it a pitfall for them in a previous election? they don't want to piss anyone off right now, but if/when they actually get into office, we all know what's going to happen.

Hey Mikey, if one of your stooges or maybe even hizzonah himself is reading this (oh I hope so sometimes).

YOU ARE POS POLITICAL OPPORTUNIST, YOU ARE NOT A REPUBLICAN. THIS KID GOT HIS GUNS LEGALLY. YOUR PET PROJECT WOULD NOT HAVE STOPPED ANYTHING. GO DO SOMETHING USEFUL INSTEAD OF TRYING TO MAKE POLITCIAL HEADWAY USING THE DEATHS OF 32 PEOPLE.

The first sentence is :bsflag:

Congress restricted the information from lawsuits the mayor wants to file. It has always been and still is availible to LEOs for genuine investigations.

Congress did not remove the ability to trace firearms from all LEO's everywhere... that is just stupid.

Couldn't find a comment area so I sent a news tip.

I have a news tip, how about reporting facts about the law instead of propaganda?

Mayor Michael Bloomberg and a coalition of 214 mayors are using the Virginia Tech massacre to pressure Congress to give local cops the information they need to trace illegal guns used in crimes.
The first sentence is false. Congress removed the ability of cities to sue gun dealers and makers using trace data. Local cops have always been availible to use trace data for genuine investigations.

Congress did not remove the ability to trace firearms from all local cop's everywhere... to say or imply otherwise is either ignorant or very dishonest.

How about instead reporting how Boolmberg wishes to break federal laws and use any tragedy to advance a gun control agenda that has (in study after study) never lowered crime rates? If I were a news organiztaion I would check what Bloomberg says before printing it, or quote him exactly... because he has a tendancy wander from the facts.

I don't think he did. He had to have lied on the form when buying the guns by stating that he had never been in a mental institution, etc.
