Senator Gillibrand Pushes to Make Gun Trafficking a Federal Crime
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is pushing for a bill to make gun trafficking a federal crime.
The Senator is collaborating with NYPD and community advocates to crack down on illegal guns and gang violence.
According to NYPD 90 percent of guns used in crimes come from out of state and prosecutions become complicated due to lack of consistency in federal gun laws. The Legislation would make gun trafficking a federal crime and would provide tools to law enforcement to get illegal guns off the streets and prosecute those who traffic them.
