N.Y. Gov. Cuomo Proposes Assault Weapons Ban

January 09, 2013  | 

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday that New York needs an assault weapons ban, not just the increased penalties for illegal gun possession that Republicans are backing.

Cuomo, a Democrat, said a plan from Senate Republican Majority Leader Dean Skelos that includes tougher prison sentences for illegal gun possession, using them for crimes or taking them on school property doesn't go far enough in the wake of a shooting a Connecticut school that killed 26 people.
