Mayor Durkin Goes to Washington
On Wednesday, January 16th, Roslyn Mayor John Durkin traveled to Washington D.C. to participate with other mayors in a day of advocacy for gun control. Mayor Durkin met with Representatives and senior staff members to familiarize them with Mayors Against Illegal Guns’ position on gun control. This group, formed by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, with over 850 mayors nationwide as members, is calling for a ban on high capacity magazines, background checks on all gun sales, and making it a federal crime to traffic in weapons. The Mayor also met with both survivors and family members who lost loved ones in the shootings in Aurora, Arizona, and Newtown. It was a powerful and emotional reminder of lives lost and lives shattered by gun violence. Over one million people have signed the petition to call on Congress to make these common sense ideas the law of the land.
