SUNSET PARK - Community leaders are applauding Vice President Joe Biden and Mayor Michael Bloomberg's discussion of gun control laws, but say more focus needs to be paid to places like Brooklyn.

Anti-gun violence advocate Mike Tucker, of "Lay the Guns Down," appreciates the efforts being made by Biden and Bloomberg, but says more needs to be done to stop the gun violence locally.

Some Brooklyn residents say the lawmakers should come to the borough to get a better perspective on gun violence here.
