Mayors Against Illegal Guns Visiting Fargo, Walaker Not Attending

Posted: Updated:

A pro-gun control group of mayors started by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has scheduled an event in Fargo. 

Fargo Mayor Dennis Walaker says he won't attend even though he is a member of the group called Mayors Against Illegal Guns, which is founded and funded by Bloomberg. 

Walaker says he's been criticized since announcing his membership in the group years ago and has been distancing himself from the group because he doesn't want to get involved in big-city politics that have little to do with Fargo. 

The group says Walaker is the only North Dakota mayor in Bloomberg's coalition.

The group claims more than 900 mayors as members.
