Rep. Collins attends closed-door talks at schools

Posted at 7:33 PM, Apr 09, 2018

Two days after Republican Congressman Chris Collins did not attend a student-run gun discussion in Buffalo, he was out visiting students in schools Monday.

Collins attended pre-planned meetings at Lancaster and Eden Schools.

He says no topics were off the table.

Meantime, he's being criticized by his opponent, Democrat Nate McMurray.


McMurray says Collins should attend discussions that are open to the public.

The media was not invited to attend the discussions at Lancaster and Eden. 

Collins says the gun-forum on Saturday was a "political rally" to promote McMurray.
