Once again, Newsday publishes an account that leaves out important facts ["Recalls in Colo. blunt gun push in Congress," News, Sept. 15]. The article made it seem as if the National Rifle Association was the only player in this fight. The truth is that New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's Mayors Against Illegal Guns contributed an equal amount of funding to prevent the recall.

The story also neglected to inform readers that Colorado Senate President John Morse, one of those recalled, silenced the opponents of the gun-control bills by not allowing the mandatory debate to take place in the legislative chamber, as is customary in that state.
