Omaha Mayor Jim Suttle is part of a group of 30 mayors using a public service ad to call for congressional action on gun control.
The Mayors Against Illegal Guns group released an ad Thursday demanding universal background checks for gun sales, tougher federal gun laws and limits on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.
“In Nebraska we strongly support the Second Amendment right to bear arms, but the overwhelming majority of law-abiding gun owners know that with rights come responsibilities,” Suttle said in a statement.
“Legislation that keeps illegal guns off our streets and out of dangerous hands is the responsible thing to do. Congress must act now to make sure common-sense safety measures become law.”
