Bloomberg Group Grades Lawmakers’ Gun Votes

 

 

 

 

” New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg‘s Mayors Against Illegal Guns coalition will now rate lawmakers on their gun records, the coalition’s director said.

The coalition of more than 900 mayors across the country was expected to announce a scoring system Tuesday, with grades of A through F, much like those of the National Rifle Association, Director Mark Glaze told The Washington Post.

“For decades, the NRA has done an admirable job of tracking to minute detail how members of Congress stand on gun bills. We’ve simply decided to do the same,” Glaze said.

NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam told the Post the Mayors Against Illegal Guns scoring system would likely not have the same effect as the NRA’s.”
