Bloomberg Plans Anti-Gun Blitz

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Monday "will begin bankrolling a $12 million national advertising campaign that focuses on senators who he believes might be persuaded to support a pending package of federal regulations to curb gun violence," the New York Times reports.

"The ads, in 13 states, will blanket those senators' districts during an Easter Congressional recess that is to be followed by debate over the legislation... The mayor's advertising blitz, which will saturate television screens in states including Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Arizona, represents by far the biggest escalation of Mr. Bloomberg's attempts to become a one-man counterweight to the National Rifle Association in the political clash over guns."
