Cuomo to Announce Gun Reform

This could be all-out warfare. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is in the midst of negotiating one of the country's toughest gun control laws and is expected to announce it on Wednesday, sources say. The new legislation would include restrictions of assualt weapons, harsher penalties for gun crimes and magazine limits. The details have been negotiated with Senate and Assembly leaders. “It’s a very divisive topic,” Cuomo said this week. “There’s a lot of energy on both sides. Some people are vehemently against’ some people think we’re out of our minds for not passing it.” The plan would be announced at Cuomo's State of the State speech in Albany.
