The Associated Press reports:
Democratic presidential contender Michael Bloomberg unveiled a gun control policy on Thursday just steps from the site of one of Colorado’s worst mass shootings, calling for a ban on all assault weapons, mandatory permits for gun purchasers and a new position in the White House to coordinate gun violence prevention.
“I’ve been all in on the fight against gun violence for 15 years, and I’m just getting started,” Bloomberg declared. “As president, I will work to end the gun violence epidemic once and for all.”
The speaking lineup included Democratic state Rep. Tom Sullivan, whose son, Alex, was killed in the attack. Sullivan formally endorsed Bloomberg while introducing him Thursday.
