About these ads

On Monday, Mr. Horowitz’s organization paid for a full-page ad in the Denver Post in which Daniel Mauser, the father of a slain Columbine student, urged Colorado Sen. Mark Udall (D) to support a federal bill that would expand criminal background checks at gun shows. (A Colorado bill requiring background checks for all sellers at gun shows in the state was passed in 2000.)

Mayors Against Illegal Guns – a national coalition started by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino – used the Columbine anniversary Tuesday to announce a new TV ad campaign targeting the loophole, appealing in particular to key senators in five states.

“Eleven years after Columbine – it’s time,” says the ad, which the group is airing in Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Ohio, and Virginia as well as some national stations.

What about the Second Amendment?
