NY – GUN CONTROL – Cuomo, Democrats creating watershed session for gun control

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is proposing six gun control bills in his budget and more than two dozen more are active in the legislature this first election year since Republicans lost the State Senate majority and the power to block firearms measures. Cuomo, however, said he won’t let New York be surpassed by other states on one of his legacy issues. “We enacted the nation’s best gun safety law with bipartisan support after the Sandy Hook massacre, but before Orlando, El Paso, Parkland, Las Vegas, Dayton, Pittsburgh and countless other massacres,” Cuomo said in his January State of the State address. “You cannot count the number of lives we saved in New York with the SAFE Act, but you could have been able to count the number of lives we would have lost if we didn’t pass the SAFE Act. And thank God we did.” This year, Cuomo proposes: Prohibiting “ghost guns,” which would bar individuals who can’t legally possess a firearm from buying separate parts, then assembling an untraceable gun or shotgun. Authorizing courts to seize guns from the scene of a domestic violence incident. Denying firearm permits and licenses to an applicant who committed certain misdemeanors deemed serious in another state. Current law already denies permits and licenses to New Yorkers if they commit serious misdemeanors within New York. Requiring all crime gun data including ballistic records to be kept in a centralized database for use by law enforcement. Sharing “flags” of mental health concerns about gun owners to officials in other states. Creating a “domestic violence misdemeanor” that could deny firearms from an abuser upon conviction.  [full article]
