Statement From Senator Malcolm A. Smith

 May 1, 2011 is a day that all Americans will remember as the end of a dark era in our country's history.  Exactly 8 years after our former President prematurely declared: "Mission Accomplished," this President has delivered on the promise to capture Osama Bin Laden and bring justice to the families of those who lost their lives on 9/11/01. I applaud the efforts by President Obama, our National Intelligence agencies, and our international partners in this effort. Although the death of Osama Bin Laden will not bring back to life any of his innocent victims, we as Americans, can take solace in knowing that Al Qaeda is no more.

SENATOR MALCOLM A. SMITH ADVOCATES FOR NATIONAL FUNDING FOR CEASEFIRE MODEL

  WASHINGTON-  Senator Malcolm A. Smith is in Washington, D.C. today fighting for federal funds for violence prevention programs modeled after CeaseFire Chicago. This visit is crucial, as it is National Crime Victims Rights Week.  “It was particularly important for me to come to Washington to fight for funding for a program that I truly believe in. The only way to combat crime is to tackle it head-on. We cannot do that without the proper funding. I secured USD $4 million in critical funding through a Legislative initiative in the 2009-2010 State Budget, with a re-appropriation of the original allocation in the FY 2011-2012 State Budget, for Operation SNUG. That, however, is not sufficient.

STATEMENT FROM SENATOR MALCOLM A. SMITH

"I would like to applaud Commissioner Ray Kelly and the NYPD for focusing their attention and resources on reducing shootings and homicides City-wide. Their hard work paid off as crimes of that nature are down nearly 21% compared to this time last year.

The decrease in crime can also be attributed to programs like Operation SNUG and the Gun Buy-Back Program. It is imperative that we continue to fund programs such as these and continue to rid our streets of illegal guns.  For every gun that is turned in, another life is being saved. For every SNUG Program that is funded, another young person is being saved from the streets.
