U.S. Conference of Mayors meets in Baltimore
BALTIMORE —Baltimore's mayor wants the presidential candidates to talk more about the gun debate, which will be one of the focal points of the U.S. Conference of Mayors that the city is hosting this weekend.
Some of the presidential candidates are talking about guns, but maybe not the way Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake wants them to. As president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, she's hoping for a different dialogue.
Hosting more than 30 mayors from New York City to Plano, Texas, this weekend, Rawlings-Blake said the group should call for the presidential candidates to support what she calls common sense gun legislation.
"One of the things we are talking about is when someone applies to get a gun and is rejected that that information is shared with the city, the state and the federal governments," Rawlings-Blake said.
