NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” gun control group has issued an apology for erroneously naming Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev as a “victim of gun violence.” The organization’s subsequent apology indicated that it drew from a list put together another website. “Mayors Against Illegal Guns relied on the public list compiled by entitled ‘How Many People Have Been Killed by Guns Since Newtown?’, and his name was on the list.”

Jennifer Horn of the New Hampshire GOP denounced the inclusion: “Tamerlan Tsarnaev was a murderous terrorist and a cold-blooded killer. It is outrageous that Mayor Bloomberg’s gun-control group is so radical and out of touch with New Hampshire values that it believes this monster should be labeled as some kind of victim.”
