Newton Mayor to Discuss Gun Reform with Fellow Mass. Mayors

Mayor Setti Warren will meet with Boston Mayor Tom Menino and the Massachusetts delegation of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

Newton Mayor Setti Warren will head into Boston tomorrow and join more than a dozen Massachusetts mayors to discuss ways to move forward with gun reform. 

The meeting will include Massachusetts mayors who are a part of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a group co-chaired by Boston Mayor Tom Menino.

According to a press release issued by Menino's office Wednesday, Thursday's meeting will feature discussion on how to "continue to pressure Congress to take action on common sense gun control."

The mayors will talk over ways to mobilize constituents and build support for gun reform, the press release said. They will also film a PSA asking for plan to prevent gun violence. 

Warren is one of 26 Massachusetts mayors who have joined the Mayor's Against Illegal Guns group, which has more than 800 members nationwide. 

The group works with local, state and national officials to come up with best practices and policies on how to help law enforcement target illegal guns, according to the group's website.

Are legal guns allowed in Newton public buildings (City Hall, Library, etc.)? Parks? What must a Newton business do in order to ban guns from their premises? Is there a registry of those that do?
