MILWAUKEE - A push for universal background checks is hitting the airwaves.

The group "Mayors Against Illegal Guns" started airing an ad, trying to convince US senators to approve universal background checks. Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is a founding member of the group.

The NRA accuses the group of trying to impose its will by running the ads.
