    Cuomo: New Gun Control Measures Coming After California Shooting

    Cuomo: New Gun Control Measures Coming After California Shooting

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo in a statement on Thursday reiterated new gun control measures will be made in the new legislative session after 12 people were killed at a bar in California.

    “In New York, we are not waiting for the federal government to act,” Cuomo said in a statement. “We already have the strongest gun safety laws in the nation, and in the upcoming legislative session we will take additional steps to make our laws even stronger to keep our communities safe.”

    Cuomo has backed legislation that would bar people deemed to be dangerous to themselves and others from possessing a firearm. The so-called “red flag” legislation has the support of Democrats in both the Assembly and Senate, where the party has gained a majority in Tuesday’s elections.

    “Thoughts and prayers will not address the scourge of gun violence, we must take action and show leadership,” said Andrea Stewart-Cousins, who is expected to become the Senate majority leader. “The Senate Democrats have pushed for common sense gun safety legislation and we will ensure that New Yorkers are protected from dangerous individuals and weapons of war.”

    Cuomo has made gun control a signature issue for him while in office, pushing through the SAFE Act in 2013 in the wake of a shooting at an elementary school, a package of measures that angered gun-rights supporters in New York.

    This year, lawmakers approved a bill that tightened restrictions on gun possession for those who have been convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence.

    “Over a year after the shooting in Las Vegas, this tragedy is another painful reminder of the scourge of gun violence that continues to plague our society,” Cuomo said.

    “These acts of senseless violence are occurring with frightening regularity, and yet Washington has resigned itself to doing nothing. Thoughts and prayers will not prevent another shooting—but action can. Two days ago, Americans made clear that they want a return to reasonable politics. We are resolved to do all we can to uphold that vision, and to make our streets safe as well.”

      This is very NYS like. While people are grieving it is good time to get some political extra points. BTW, it is no definitive info if shooter was or was not diagnosed with ptsd. But who cares about details, right?

        You can try to fight this in court, but you have seen past results

        maybe gunowners will finally embrace nullification, it’s working well for potheads and other issues

              The irony is the one thing that would have potentially eliminated/limited the carnage would be the scrapping of nonsense gun laws and allowing people to carry concealed and defend themselves. Preaching to the choir, I know.

                          The elections are over. Those who want “Gun Control” will now go all out. Those who “Claimed” to be pro 2A and ran on it have nothing to lose now by backing new laws.
                          Get out of NY or be prepared for what’s coming.

                              Why?

                              That “Room” will soon be the only place you’ll be able to hide your “supplies”.
                              If/when new laws are passed where are you going to be able to use them?
