On January 7, 2013 Mayor Matt Ryan presented the key proposals of Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) to the Binghamton City Council. The discussion focused on the means to reduce and eliminate the senseless gun violence that has effected cities across the nation. Most recently and pubicly the issue has been focused on Sandy Hook but these are issues that Binghamton itself has faced in the not far past.
The following is exclusive video of the event, without edit, intended to help promote discussion on the ways in which a solution may be attained for this serious matter.
After the presentation, M V Consulting president Michael Vass was able to speak with Mayor Ryan. We were able to ask several questions about the position of Mayor Ryan on this issue, as well as how citizens might be affected by the proposals of MAIG if enacted in total. We thank Mayor Ryan for taking the time to answer our questions on this matter.
The exclusive video of our questions and the answers of Mayor Matt Ryan follow:
