Cuomo Pushes For Assault Weapon Ban
ALBANY---(WENY) Governor Andrew Cuomo is pushing for an assault weapons ban. He says that Republican proposals to increase penalties for illegal guns don't go far enough and New York needs to ban assault weapons completely. Following the recent shooting of 26 people at a Connecticut school, state officials are calling for measures to prevent recurrences. Cuomo says the Republican plan "misses the mark" if it doesn't ban assault weapons. The Governor is expected to touch on Gun Control in tomorrow's 'State of the State' address.
