Mayor Michael Bloomberg is set to hold his first national summit on illegal guns at Gracie Mansion next week.
More than a dozen mayors from across the country have said they plan to attend. Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino will host the event.
The mayors will share and discuss strategies for fighting illegal guns and gun crime. The day-long event will include a panel of the nation's leading experts on gun crimes and a presentation from Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.
The summit comes less than a month after the mayor made an impassioned plea before Congress not to pass a gun bill he called a “God-awful” piece of legislation that would lead to more people being murdered.
