Ryan Talks Gun Control – Binghamton Mayor Matt Ryan is asking President Obama to put stricter gun control measures in place. He and about 750 other mayors have written a letter to the President. They are asking that every potential gun buyer have a criminal background check run on them. Currently, some buyers avoid checks by buying guns on-line or through unlicensed private sellers. Mayor Ryan also says military style weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines should not be allowed on the streets. And, he wants gun trafficking to become a federal crime. All of those ideas would require action by Congress.
