(ST. ALBANS, NY)- Senate President Pro Tempore Malcolm A. Smith honored Liz Bishop-Goldsmith as his March constituent of the month. Ms. Bishop-Goldsmith is the founder of Mothers Against Guns, Inc. (MAG).

“Liz continues to lobby and advocate for guns laws. She does a lot of positive work in  our community and for that she deserves to be honored,  ” said Senator Smith.

The organization was formed in March of 1994, after Ms.  Bishop-Goldsmith lost her godson to the hands of senseless gun violence.

The New York City Council approved legislation (Intro-144-A) that Ms. Bishop-Goldsmith proposed placing restrictions on the purchase of ammunition.

“ MAG is proud of the “bullet bill” and firmly believes that making the purchase of ammunition difficult for youth and those with criminal intent will have a positive impact on the reduction of gun related crimes in our society,” said Senator Smith.

Ms. Bishop-Goldsmith is the proud mother of three loving sons and six grandsons. She attends St. Matthews AME Church in Hollis. Ms. Goldsmith and her husband reside in Rosedale.
