A billboard on wheels has been cruising the streets of South Florida, heralding a pointed message in giant type: 2,191 Americans Use Guns In Self-Defense Every Day; Guns Save Lives.

Of course, the traveling advertisement won’t make any friends in the administration of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has made a crusade of ridding his city of illegal guns.

Bloomberg is co-chairman of an association of mayors trying to make it tougher for criminals to get firearms. That group has a rolling billboard truck of its own proclaiming “34 Americans Are Murdered With Guns Everyday” – a statistic the pro-gun Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep Bear Arms disputes.

CCRKBA claims gun control activists’ figures are inflated because they include “justifiable homicides,” death the pro-gun groups would exclude.
