The Business Council Joins Chamber Coalition Calling for Federal Assault Weapons Ban



The Business Council of New York State joined a coalition of chambers, across New York State, calling for a federal assault weapons ban in response to the continued mass shootings across the country. 

"Since the horrific Buffalo shooting just a few weeks ago similar tragedies continue to happen across the country. When such acts of violence occur, the impact and suffering for extended families and entire communities linger, said Heather Briccetti, President & CEO, The Business Council of New York state. "Unfortunately, these incidents and the anguish they leave behind are not unique to this state, which is why federal legislation would be an appropriate step in addressing this continuing crisis across America. When it comes to mass shootings and illogical acts of violence, we believe common-sense laws that are consistent from state to state must be adopted to hinder and hopefully, one day, prevent meaningless death and endless sorrow. We stand with our friends in Buffalo and the rest of our colleagues in calling for swift and meaningful change”
