Mayor Thomas Menino welcomes President Obama to Boston

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino said Vice President Joe Biden “guaranteed” that President Obama will pass strict gun control legislation by the end of the month, according to the Boston Herald.

“He said, ‘Tommy, I guarantee you, we’ll get it done by the end of January,’” Menino said. “They’re going to get it done.”

Menino, a proponent of strict gun control, co-chairs Mayors Against Illedal Guns with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Referring to the rash of urban young gang violence, “I understand the second amendment, the right to bear arms,” he said. “But I don’t understand how young kids should be able to get guns.”

Menino added that because the president is in his last term, he has “no excuse not to pass strong (gun control) legislation.”

“It’s time to get this moving and moving quickly,” Menino said. “Let’s do it now.”
