Guns from states with weak firearms laws are being used at an ever-increasing rate in city crimes, Mayor Bloomberg said Wednesday, as he vowed to continue his push for tougher laws across the country.

“Keep your guns out of our city,” Hizzoner said. “Couldn’t be simpler.”

The most recent data available show that 90% of all guns used in city crimes in 2011 came from other states, Bloomberg revealed at a news conference in City Hall.

That spike compares to 86% in 2010 and 85% in 2009.
