New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg invited Congress to attend the funeral of a slain cop with him on Monday, saying that it might urge lawmakers to do something about the flow of illegal guns.

Bloomberg said on his radio show on Friday that he wants members of Congress to come to the funeral of NYPD Officer Peter Figoski, who was shot and killed last week with an illegally purchased handgun, according to POLITICO.

“If you could get Congress to come with me and sit with me in this church on Monday — wouldn’t that be wonderful if they finally got some understanding, and in memory of this officer said, ‘We can’t bring him back, but we’re going to make sure his kids and his parents are protected by getting guns off the streets out of illegal hands,’” Bloomberg said.

Bloomberg was responding to a Twitter user who asked why New York wastes so much time pushing for additional gun control measures.

“When I read that I thought to myself, maybe the guy wants to join me out in Babylon on Monday sitting in the church where the funeral is for Officer Figoski,” Bloomberg said.
