New York City Mayor Eric Adams, who campaigned on a safety platform and entered office to a wave of brutality, unveiled a comprehensive plan Monday to try and reduce gun violence in the city.

"The Blueprint to End Gun Violence" is a 15-page document that outlines what the mayor said was a comprehensive strategy to get guns off the street, crack down on trafficking, help youth find jobs and provide better services for the mentally ill.
