Menino on Friday, Dec. 21, 2012, responded to the National Rifle Association’s call for armed police and security volunteers to be posted at schools, saying the group’s proposal “is not a plan, but a ploy to bring more guns into our neighborhoods,” following the Dec. 14 massacre in a Connecticut elementary school.

Vice President Joe Biden “guaranteed” that President Barack Obama will pass sweeping gun control legislation by the end of January, according to Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino.
“He said, ‘Tommy, I guarantee you, we’ll get it done by the end of January,’” Menino reportedly said at City Hall on Thursday. “They’re going to get it done.”
“I understand the Second Amendment, the right to bear arms. But I don’t understand how young kids should be able to get guns,” Menino said, adding that Obama has “no excuse not to pass strong legislation.”
The mayor also said the president no longer has to worry about upsetting pro-gun voters or the National Rifle Association because he is in his second term. In other words, he is more “flexible.”
