WASHINGTON, D.C. (WTVR) – New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg sat down with CBS 6 anchor Greg McQuade Friday in Washington, D.C. They talked about guns, specifically Virginia’s gun laws. Mayor Bloomberg is an out-spoken critic of Virginia’s gun laws.

‘I just think guns are a problem for everyone in America,” Mayor Bloomberg said during the interview.

Earlier this week Bloomberg spoke out after Virginia lawmakers repealed a law that limited the number of handguns a person could by in Virginia to one every 30 days.

“If someone wants to buy more than one gun a month, you would think the reason they’re going to do it is because they’re going to re-sell it,” Mayor Bloomberg told McQuade. “It’s not my business what people want to do in Virginia, that’s their business. But when they facilitate the guns from Virginia and they are sold illegally in New York, then that is our interest.”
