New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Tuesday challenged President Obama to “stand up” on gun control, an issue on which he has been largely silent in the wake of the tragic shootings in Tucson.

During an interview on MSNBC, the a longtime gun control advocate argued that the White House, along with Congress, needs to be more vigilant in enforcing existing laws regarding the sale of firearms.

“The trouble is that the Congress has done this – and they do it repeatedly – they pass a law showing they’re tough on the bad guys and then they don’t give you the wherewithal to enforce it,” Bloomberg told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.
