Cuomo’s new proposal

Governor Cuomo has called for a new bill allowing teachers to petition the courts to remove guns from the homes of students. This is an expanded version of the idea behind S-7133A which was Reported two weeks ago.

Here is video of the Governor making this announcement:

What is odd is his drafting of a new bill this late in the session. I know he’s doing it now because he is worried about Cynthia Nixon’s campaign damaging his future Presidential aspirations. However, he could simply beat on the Republicans to get them to bring up S-7133A which would allow him to claim victory. That is all he really cares about, not enacting substantive legislation.
