NYAGV announced its endorsement on October 9 of Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel for re-election.

Schimel, co-chair of State Legislators Against Illegal Guns (SLAIG)–a group of state legislators that works to pass common sense gun legislation–represents New York’s 16th District.

Leah Gunn Barrett, NYAGV Executive Director, said, “Assemblywoman Schimel’s leadership in the New York State Assembly has saved countless lives. Because of dedicated leaders like her our state has the fourth lowest gun death rate in the nation. Like us, she knows that smart gun laws work. We look forward to working with Assemblywoman Schimel in the upcoming legislative session to continue the tremendous progress New York has made to protect our citizens from the preventable scourge of gun violence. “
