On Friday, August 30th Mayor Matthew Ryan, City Council woman Lea Webb, families of Binghamton shooting victims, local leaders and local advocates will gather in Binghamton as part of the “No More Names: National Drive to Reduce Gun Violence” – a 25-state national bus tour over a period of 100 days aimed at urging America’s leaders to support common-sense gun policies.

Participants will come together Friday 10am at Binghamton’s Recreation Park on Beethovan Street to voice their support for comprehensive background checks and they will urge New York lawmakers to support bipartisan legislation that would extend background checks to cover private gun sales in commercial settings.

Additionally, participants are gathering as a remembrance to honor the lives of the victims, the survivors and the families of those affected by the 2009 shootings at the American Civic Association immigration center.

The event will thank Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand for voting in favor of bipartisan background checks legislation in April, and urge the rest of Congress – including Representatives Richard Hanna, Chris Gibson, and Tom Reed– to support this life-saving measure.
