Hate Crime in Buffalo

A Hate Crime in Buffalo, New York

New York has strong gun laws that prohibit the possession of assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines like the ones likely used in this attack. However, neighboring states like Ohio and Pennsylvania do not. One of the guns in the possession of the 18-year old shooter was reportedly purchased in Pennsylvania.

We agree with New York Congressman Higgins that a federal assault rifle weapons ban is long past due.
