Mayors demand gun control action from Congress in PSA

March 7, 2013 7:38:50 PM PST
Mayors from around the country, including San Francisco's Ed Lee, are coming together in a new public service announcement demanding action from Congress to reduce gun violence.

The 30-second internet PSA comes from a bipartisan coalition called "Mayors Against Illegal Guns."

It's co-chaired by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and includes more than 900 mayors from 45 states and more than a million and a half grassroots supporters.

The new PSA marks a transition in the coalition's campaign from demanding a plan to demanding that Congress take action to pass legislation.
