NY seals 1st state gun laws since Newtown massacre
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York lawmakers agreed to pass the toughest gun control law in the nation and the first since the Newtown, Conn., school shooting, calling for a stricter assault weapons ban and provisions to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill who make threats.
“This is a scourge on society,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday night, six days after making gun control a centerpiece of his agenda in his State of the State address.
The measure also calls for restrictions on ammunition and the sale of guns. It is expected to pass Tuesday.
