NY Gov. Cuomo Pushes For Assault Weapons Ban
A fired-up Cuomo is out to control weapons of war in private hands:
“I think what the nation is saying now after Connecticut, what people in New York are saying is ‘Do something, please,’” Cuomo said recently.
According to a report by the New York Times, sources close to the negotiations in the New York legislature say the governor is looking for a broad package to tighten restrictions, to be announced in his State of the State address Wednesday. The proposal could have tougher sentences for gun crimes, in addition to other provisions.
Cuomo made the push to control assault weapons a central point of his State of the State address on Wednesday.
