The ad features video of Obama praising Bloomberg as a “leader,” then a voice-over tells viewers, “Mayor Bloomberg and President Obama worked together in the fight for gun safety laws.”
Obama can be heard speaking in the ad, praising Bloomberg for “[bringing] people together to seek pragmatic solutions.”
The ad does not mention that the post-Sandy Hook gun control push was unsuccessful.
Nor does it mention that the push rested almost entirely on the passage of universal background checks, which would not have stopped or even hindered the Sandy Hook attack, had they been in place, because the attacker stole his guns.
