Mayors assail NRA on gun data access

Report says share information

A nationwide coalition of mayors who support tougher gun control, led by Thomas M. Menino of Boston and Michael R. Bloomberg of New York, ­issued a report Monday that ­assails the National Rifle Association for what the mayors call a systematic attempt to restrict access to firearms data and research by the public, government, and law enforcement.

The report was unveiled by Bloomberg at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore on the one-month anniversary of the shooting spree at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., that killed 20 first-graders and six adults.
