Bloomberg group will unveil grading system on guns today

in Uncategorized by

The nonprofit group financed by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to push gun control laws will unveil a scoring system Tuesday to award lawmakers grades of A through F, much like the National Rifle Association, which has derived much of its power by deploying letter rankings against politicians at election time, the Washington Post reports.

This is Bloomberg’s latest move to establish his organization as a counterweight to the influential NRA and to create legislative momentum on Capitol Hill around President Obama’s proposals to toughen the nation’s gun laws.
