Although Brown’s record in the State Senate was poor, he has largely avoided gun issues as Mayor except for some focus on “illegal” guns. Examples include:
- “Mayor Byron W. Brown’s 7th Gun BuyBack Program“
- “Buffalo marks Gun Violence Awareness Month with tip campaign“
- “Violence, homicides down in Buffalo“
Notably, Brown did not come out in support of the SAFE Act and that may have cost him the Lt. Governor’s spot.
