NEW YORK (PIX11) – Dozens of local lawmakers are outraged that Mayor Michael Bloomberg compared the city teachers union to the National Rifle Association, and they want an apology.

They claim its an offensive comparison just three weeks after the deadly Newtown shooting.

Bloomberg blasted the union for failing to agree to new teacher evaluations.

He said the union, like the NRA, had taken a position unpopular with its members. So far, no apology from the Mayor.
