Adriano Espaillat is committed to the safety and security of our childrens schools, our temples, churches and synagogues.
To protect our children from violence, Adriano co-sponsored the Childrens Weapon Accident Prevention Act (A 5844) which creates new crimes for failing to store weapons safely and directs the commissioner of education to develop a weapons-safety program for schoolchildren.
Synagogues and their congregants are prime targets as evidenced of recent attempted terrorist attracts. He will legislate to treat any attempt, with tougher penalties. Moreover, he will push Congress to ensure that New York gets its full share of the Homeland Security funding in order to protect all New Yorkers from any further terrorism attempts.
