THANK YOU GOVERNOR PATAKI AND NYS LEGISLATURE
for taking action to curb illegal gun traffic and increase penalties for those who use guns to shoot police officers.
In 2006 Session expand upon the this legislation to provide the same increased penalties for those who use guns to shoot any citizen, as well those who use guns in robberies and home invasions.
It was heartening to hear Governor Pataki's announcement , today, that funds were being allocated for increased police efforts to curb illegal gun trade and disarm criminals; and that State Police were being deployed to assist local police, in this effort, in high gun violence communities (like Albany).
Don't forget disarming gangs.
Congrats to Mayor Jennings and Chief Tuffey on stepped up Operation Impact in Albany.
Merry Christmas. Happy New Year to all. J P Sullivan
