Asked If She Would Take Guns Away from NYPD Officers, Maya Wiley Says She Is ‘Not Prepared To Make That Decision in a Debate’

‘I am gonna have a civilian commissioner and a civilian commission that’s gonna hold he police accountable and make sure we’re safe from crime’

EXCERPT:

KRAMER: "Will you take the guns away from them?"

WILEY: "And that does mean that we want smart policing. I think we know that we have a problem with illegal guns coming into this city. We have the strongest gun control laws in the country. The issue is how they’re coming in. So we do want a police department that is focused on keeping them out of the city and off our streets."

KRAMER: "But will you take the guns away from the NYPD?"

WILEY: "I am not prepared to make that decision in a debate. I am going to have a civilian commissioner and a civilian commission that is going to hold the police accountable and make sure we’re safe from crime, but also from police violence."
