154 Guns Off Our Streets, 11 Individuals Indicted for the Sale of Illegal Firearms

Congratulations and thanks to Kings County DA Charles Hynes and NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly on yesterday’s indictment of 11 individuals for the sale of 154 illegal guns. Six of the guns were used to commit crimes in New York City, including two shootings in Brooklyn.

The result of this year-long investigation shows how extensive the illegal gun enterprise is and the damage it has on our communities. I commend DA Hynes, Commissioner Kelly and the NYPD officers involved for a job well done.

Statement from Senator Dilan, Re: Implementation of Secure Communities program

“I’m disappointed New York’s request to suspend the expansion of the Secure Communities program was ignored. This program threatens any hope of developing new inroads among law enforcement and our immigrant communities of New York. Furthermore, any progress toward a working relationship between the two will surely suffer once this program is implemented.”
