“A surge in gun violence across cities across New York led Gov. Andrew Cuomo to declare a state of emergency Tuesday. The move, which Cuomo called a disaster emergency, means New York can bolster its law enforcement presence in cities where the shootings are on the rise and put additional state resources to crime-ridden areas, he said. Additionally, he said a new gun-violence prevention office will be established within the state Health Department, require police agencies to better report where the shootings are happening and establish a new council on gun violence reduction …”
