The Daily News reports:
“Lawmakers in New York trying to draw more resources into communities plagued by gun violence want to change the definition of “mass shooting.” … Under a bill [Monique] Chandler-Waterman is proposing in the state Assembly, a mass shooting would be defined as any gun violence that resulted in the death or injury of at least four people. Declaring such violence as a mass shooting would allow communities to pursue additional funding resources from the state and federal governments …”
This appears to be part of a theme the antis are going for this legislative session, using shootings as an excuse to waste tax dollars and handout pork to their friends back home.
I don’t see the bill in question yet so I assume it will be introduced shortly.
