I urge you to join my office and New York Voices Against Gun Violence in a massive rally against gun violence starting at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 21 at the Harlem State Office Building, 163 West 125th Street (just east of Seventh Avenue). As I reported earlier this year, I am proud to have voted for the NY SAFE Act of 2013, which enacts the toughest assault weapons ban in the nation. Its passage broke the gun lobby’s decades-long grip on the legislature and, not surprisingly, the gun lobby has come out swinging, organizing opposition and mounting challenges to the law. Too many families and communities have been devastated by gun violence. We must send a message to Albany and Washington that the vast majority of New Yorkers support common sense gun control measures aimed at preventing senseless injuries and deaths.
