"New York’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg who is an outspoken gun-control advocate called the statement, ‘a shameful evasion of the crisis facing our country.’ ‘Instead of offering solutions to a problem they have helped create, they offered a paranoid, dystopian vision of a more dangerous and violent America where everyone is armed and no place is safe,’ he said. ‘Enough. As a country, we must rise above special interest politics.’ The Democratic congressman and senator elect Chris Murphy, whose district includes Newtown said in a tweet: ‘Walking out of another funeral and was handed the NRA transcript. The most revolting, tone deaf statement I’ve ever seen.’"
