HARRISON, N.Y. – Recently, I joined other mayors from across the country who have signed a letter from the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.
This letter has been sent to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and calls on the attorney general to direct the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms to take more aggressive actions against “bad apple” gun dealers.
The goal is to utilize local elected officials’ influence to prompt the attorney general to act.
