Following yet another street shooting in which six people were injured including a two year old girl, State Senator Eric Adams of Brooklyn is calling on Albany to approve an emergency allocation of $50 million to combat gun-related violence in New York City.

Speaking with WBAI's Lucas Reckhaus, Adams says violence reduction programs have helped keep communities peaceful in the past, but that the funding was cut back in this year's budget.
