Melissa Joins a Press Conference Announcing Tougher Restrictions on Toy Guns

Melissa participated in a press conference this morning announcing tougher restrictions on toy guns, to be brought before the City Council in the coming weeks.  See the press release here.

“This legislation will help prevent further violence by deterring businesses from selling toy guns that look real,” said Council Member Melissa Mark-Viverito. “The increased regulations created by this bill will not only prevent toy guns from being used to commit crimes, but also will avert children from being wounded or killed by confused police officers who mistake their toy for a real gun.”

Below are videos of the press conference:
