NHGOP DENOUNCES OUT-OF-STATE GUN CONTROL GROUP FOR LABELING BOSTON TERRORIST AS A VICTIM OF GUN VIOLENCE

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn blasted Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a liberal out-of-state gun control group run by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and supported by President Barack Obama, for labeling Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev as a victim of gun violence. The Union Leader (6/19/13) reports that at a rally in Concord yesterday, the group read the names of victims of gun violence since the tragedy in Newtown. Tsarnaev's name was included on this list:

 

"Tamerlan Tsarnaev was a murderous terrorist and a cold-blooded killer. It is outrageous that Mayor Bloomberg's gun control group is so radical and out of touch with New Hampshire values that it believes this monster should be labeled as some kind of victim.

 

 "President Obama and New Hampshire Democrats have joined forces with Mayor Bloomberg's out-of-state group and openly participates in its vicious smear campaign against law abiding, Granite State gun owners. They need to immediately denounce these comments, end their relationship with this extremist group and make it clear that its radical views are not welcome in New Hampshire."
