New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg met with Vice president Joe Biden at City Hall on Thursday. Earlier, the two were joined by families of the victims from Sandy Hook Elementary School in calling for members of Congress to take further action on gun control. “All those who say we can’t ban assault weapons, for all those who say politics is too hard, how can they say that?” asked Biden, who added “Take a look at those 20 babies” killed in Newtown.
