Our Homes, Our Heaven, Safe Streets with Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie

As gun violence continues to plague our neighborhoods, Host Javier Gomez speaks with New York State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie on this episode of Our Home, Our Haven, Safe Streets: Bronx Forums for Neighborhood Peace. Assembly Speaker Heastie talks about gun ownership regulation through Extreme Risk Protection Orders, and other policies and legislation aimed at reducing gun violence. The Assembly Speaker discusses how the pandemic, poverty, and other social issues contribute to gun violence. He also gives us a tour of the Northeast Bronx YMCA - one of his favorite places - as an example of a space offering positive activities for all.
