Long Island Rail Road Massacre
McCarthy, a lifelong resident of Mineola, was first elected to Congress in 1996. She has been a staunch gun control advocate since her husband was killed and her son was seriously wounded in the Dec. 7, 1993 Long Island Rail Road massacre.
Saturday marked 20 years since the Long Island Rail Road massacre, which left 16 people dead and more than a dozen wounded when a gunman opened fire inside a train full of passengers.
Former Nassau County District Attorney Denis Dillon, who in more than three decades on the job prosecuted Long Island Lolita Amy Fisher and the gunman in the 1993 Long Island Rail Road massacre, has died.
