Gun control in the state budget

Governor Hochul delivered her State of the State this morning.

Her Budget Briefing Book does not call for specific gun control proposals, but does list some spending:

Actions to Reduce and Prevent Gun Violence. The Executive Budget continues the historic investment of $347 million in programs to prevent and reduce gun violence in our communities. Since this unprecedented funding level, shooting incidents have declined by 38 percent in New York City and 35 percent in Gun Involved Violence Elimination (GIVE) jurisdictions. This investment will continue to allow communities, law enforcement, and nonprofit groups to stem gun violence in New York State.”
