NY Mayor Bloomberg's "Fix Gun Checks" truck tour stops long enough to dance in Youngstown blood

WKSU Public Radio is reporting that New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's "Fix Gun Checks" truck tour is making a stop in Youngstown, no doubt to dance in the blood of the victims of a recent gang-style shooting during a beer party at a fraternity house.

From the report:

Mayors who say their cities suffer because of loopholes in gun background checks are coming to Youngstown and Euclid Tuesday as part of a national truck tour.

The group “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” includes seventy mayors from Ohio and New York’s Mayor Bloomberg. The group wants every gun sale subject to a background check, including private sales at gun shows. It also wants a national database of everyone prohibited from buying firearms.

Omar Samaha is part of the Fix Gun Checks tour. His sister was one of the 32 people killed during the Virginia Tech shootings in 2007. He says even a complete background check database could not solve the problem.

But Buckeye Firearms Association chairman Jim Irvine says gun regulations have made it tougher for firearms dealers to get a federal license that would allow them to do background checks. He says loosening the costs and restrictions would create more federal firearms dealers and fewer private dealers.

Irvine also says that high-profile shootings have been mischaracterized by gun opponents.

"These crimes never happen in a police station. They never happen in a gun store. They don't happen in a place where everybody's armed because they can't. Because one lone gunman can't go kill 30 people that are armed to protect themselves. He has to go to a place where we have altered the law and disarmed every victim so that they're easy for him to kill," Irvine observed.
