NYC GETS GUN CZAR

By Black Radio Network Staff

He made the announcement following nearly 600 shootings this year in the Big Apple.

Named to the new job is Andre Mitchell, founder of the nonprofit group "Man Up!" and has been involved long term in the effort to curb gun violence.

Included in Mitchell's effort will be the deputy mayor, police commissioner and head of the board of e4diucation.

The mayor said "this is a real issue we want to attack head-on. If the person pickups up a gun, we've already failed."

The mayor also said police have confiscated 3,000 guns off the streets, but the violence continues because new guns are brought into the city on a regular basis. "That must stop, and stop now," he added.
