From the article, a quote from the Boy Mayor of Minneapolis pushing for a boycott of gun manufacturers that don't cower to the threats of the Democrat Mayors Mob:
“It’s especially galling, paying money from our police departments to produce loopholes that allow illegal handguns into my communities that could be used against police officers.”
This is Mayor Archie's first step in seeing that law abiding citizens have their 2nd Amendment Rights trashed.
He is practicing for his next job as the Gun Czar for Barack Hussein Obama.

Public safety is WRONG ?? Maybe you're "reading" something into this I'm missing ?? LMAOROTFU~! Poor TrashyLiar....
Amid a nationwide push for new gun regulations, members of the National Conference of Democratic Mayors have decided to launch an initiative grading gun manufacturers on their compliance with public safety goals. The companies that are least supportive may find it harder to sell their wares to police departments across the country.
Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak, who heads the Democratic mayors group, said the initiative grew out of an epiphany this week: that cities spend millions of dollars a year as customers of these companies, even while their agendas clash on Capitol Hill.
“When we were lobbying on Capitol Hill, it became clear that our goal of trying to pass laws that make it easier to make our communities safe was going to be opposed by the gun and ammunition manufacturers. We recognize as mayors, we help fund that, because we are one of the largest purchasers of guns and ammunition in the country,” Rybak told POLITICO in an interview Saturday morning.
