Chairman Nadler and Mayor Adams Issue Joint Statement

Washington, D.C. - Today, Chairman Jerrold Nadler, dean of the New York congressional delegation, and New York City Mayor Eric Adams issued the following statement after today’s congressional delegation meeting:

“So far this year, our nation has witnessed nearly 250 mass shootings, including recent ones in Buffalo, Uvalde, and Philadelphia. This epidemic affects everyday people, in every corner of New York City and across the country. The American people are hungry for real solutions to the unconscionable wave of gun violence sweeping our nation.

“Today, we had a collaborative, in-person discussion about gun safety and how we can collectively begin to address this epidemic. Additionally, we discussed how Congress is working to pass the ‘Protecting Our Kids Act,’ which will help prevent the next mass shooting. It will also keep our communities and schools safer by addressing many of the loopholes that allow guns to fall into the wrong hands. Finally, we also discussed how the Mayor’s Office can address this issue and all the critical steps that the mayor is already taking to keep New Yorkers safe.

“In these unprecedented times, it is more important than ever for all levels of our government to work in tandem to address the concerns of our constituents. By working together we can make sure New Yorkers are safe and able to access every opportunity they deserve.”
