Mayors group tries to single out states with less-restrictive gun laws

Mayors Against Illegal Guns -- a group that includes the mayors of Kansas City, Bonner Springs, Lake Quivira and Lansing -- is issuing a report on states that "most often export guns used in crimes across state lines," the New York Times reports. The top three are Mississippi, West Virginia and Kentucky. (Missouri and Kansas don't make the top 10.) The Brady Center released a similar report this summer.

Their goal is to single out states that, according to the mayors group, have gun laws that are too loose. And they're going to try and use the study to lobby for tougher gun-control laws. The NRA, as you might imagine, is unimpressed.
