Host Alan Chartock is joined by Albany County District Attorney David Soares, a Democrat now serving his third term. They discuss gun reforms, public corruption, and drugs.

Albany County District Attorney David Soares is the guest on WAMC's Capitol Connection program this week. He spoke with WAMC's Alan Chartock about several issues, including guns and the murky Albany mayoral race.

Soares says he supports firearm reforms that would require universal background checks and mandatory registration when large amounts of ammunition are purchased online. Soares, a Democrat recently reelected to a third term, says he believes the National Rifle Association is attempting to mislead the American people during a critical time in the national debate.
