Mayor Nutter Talks Guns At Yale

The New Haven Register reports that Mayor Michael Nutter talked about gun control during a Monday appearance at Yale:

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, in a speech Monday at Yale University, called on lawmakers and citizens to put economic pressure on gun and ammunition manufacturers, distributors and retailers in order to stem the tide of gun violence that “rips out the heart and soul of what a city is all about.”

“In essence, we have a Sandy Hook every day in the United States of America,” Nutter said, noting the “slow and steady drumbeat of murder and homicide” in U.S. cities.

He lamented Congress’s inability to pass a gun control bill of some sort during its recent session. “On the issue of guns,” Nutter said, “we are perfectly paralyzed.”
