NSSF vs. Bloomberg: Mayor balks at providing evidence to ATF

And now, the latest in the Bloomberg firearms fiasco: Since asking New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to turn evidence gathered against firearms dealers through private investigators over to the ATF, the National Shooting Sports Foundation finds his stonewalling revealing. Says NSSF senior vice president and general counsel Lawrence G. Keane: “The fact that Mr. Bloomberg is so afraid to turn over 'evidence' to the ATF speaks volumes as to the veracity of his claims. . . . As the mayor rejects public and law enforcement attempts to back up his incendiary claims it appears that his war against the firearms industry is more about publicity and personal disdain for guns than any illegality or impropriety on behalf of the firearms community.”
