NY 19th District Primary: Gun violence prevention
ALBANY, NY (WRGB) The Democratic Primary for New York’s 19th Congressional District is June 26th. CBS6 News spoke with the candidates about gun legislation ahead of the primary.
Statement from Tom Szymanski, Campaign Manager for John Faso for Congress Campaign:
"It is sad and regrettable that Congressman Faso's opponents resort to divisive, irresponsible rhetoric on such a critical issue. We need to work in a bipartisan manner to ensure that our schools are safe and secure, and that we are identifying individuals who need mental health care and providing it to them. Congressman Faso voted to improve mental health programs, strengthen the background check system, increase funding for school safety grants, and he has spent months sitting down with school officials, parents, students, and law enforcement across Upstate New York to discuss how to best implement ways to keep our children and educators safe."
