Issues we care about
Talk about guns has overtaken the public and media. The largest issue with guns is the legality of ownership. The reality is a large majority of guns used in crimes are illegally owned!
last year there were 356 homicides in NJ and 1365 homicides in NY, almost all committed with illegal guns and the majority were drug-related gang members.
I spent 4 years working in Brooklyn hospitals and treated, on average, 5 – 10 gunshot victims every day. Our major cities are over-run with young people falling victims to dealers and criminals. We need to start focusing on taking these illegal weapons off the street!
