By Meghashyam Mali
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I) pledged that supporters of an assault-weapons ban would get a vote in Congress.
“We’ve been fighting since 2007 to get a vote. We are going to have a vote for sure on assault weapons and we’re going to have a vote on background checks,” said the prominent gun-control advocate in an interview aired Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
