Boston Mayor Tomas M. Menino announced that Vice President Joe Biden confirmed that gun control legislation will be passed by the end of January. Menino said: “[Biden] said, ‘Tommy, I guarantee you, we’ll get it done by the end of January.’ They’re going to get it done.”

Invoking the Sandy Hook shooting as justification, Menino said: “I understand the second amendment, the right to bear arms. But I don’t understand how young kids should be able to get guns.” Menino is anxious to have legislation “moving and moving quickly.”

In Rhode Island, Providence City Coucilors demanded a resolution to ban the sale, use and possession of semi-automatic guns. Seth Yurdin, Council Majority Leader explained: “Banning semi-automatic firearms is a public safety imperative. We cannot wait for another tragedy, another senseless loss of life, before we act.”

In the Twin Cities, specifically St. Paul, the local city council has requested that lawmakers “crackdown on semi-automatic weapons and high capacity magazines.”

ibJhAwk2gqugOther requests mirror the national debate:

• Gun ownership restrictions for mentally ill

• Including terror watch list to federal background checks

• Requiring background checks at gun shows

• Outlawing conversion kits, high-capacity magazines and types of rifles

Vincent Fort, Georgia State Senator has plans to introduce gun-control bills this year on types of rifles and high capacity magazines.
