Binghamton Mayor Matt Ryan discusses gun control issues with City Council

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:

    All you focus on is limiting access to guns which will mostly affect law abiding citizens and not once do you talk about how guns stop violent crime. Stop comparing the US to other countries. Gun registries lead to confiscation. Matt Ryan you are a jackass!

  3. Owning firearms is a constitutional right NOT a privilege. NY laws are too strict and already infringe on our 2nd Amendment Rights. The left’s ultimate goal is to repeal the 2nd Amendment. These mindless sheep just go along with the gun control plan to disarm law abiding citizens. Wake up!!!

Thank you for lending your voice. We appreciate hearing what you have to say.
