I almost feel like we are a mini Chicago. Yesterday it was cold and snowing like a mini blizzard, but we are still having shootings on the regular. Police have caught some of the people who have been bringing illegal guns into the city. When Power 93.7 WBLK did our 'Put the Guns Down and Power Up,' Neal Dobbins, the founder of MVP Buffalo, spoke about how illegal guns are a part of the problem behind gun violence in our city. He spoke about the Tiahrt Amendment and how it 'handcuffs' law enforcement. Every day, I wonder how we can stop these shootings. So many victims and families have suffered unnecessarily.
