Aside from a statement in support of microstamping in his 2010 campaign manifesto, Andrew Cuomo has been silent publicly on gun control. That changed over the weekend according to this Daily News article, “Gov. Andrew Cuomo calls for shutting state prisons, investing in community in light of gun violence“:
“… Cuomo also pushed for stricter gun control laws from the federal government. “It has been decades where we have been fighting Washington for sensible laws controlling guns and we need those laws passed and we need them passed now. We’re losing too many people out in the streets,” he said …”
This bears watching to see where he’s going to go with it.
