Senate Democrats propose gun legislation

Feb 07, 2018 2:47 pm
Brendan J. Lyons reports in the Albany Times Union that Democrats in the State Senate unveiled several proposed laws intended to curb gun violence on Feb. 6. Among the bills: Anyone convicted of low-level hate crimes would be prohibited from buying firearms; bump stock devices such as the one used in the Las Vegas mass shooting would be banned; courts would be allowed to order the seizure of guns from individuals who are at risk of harming themselves or others; background checks for gun sellers would be more in-depth; and the possession of firearms that get by security screening devices would be outlawed. Democrats, while they outnumber Republicans in the State Senate, do not control the legislation there, as a handful of Democrats have joined with the GOP to control the chamber. So the gun measures probably have little chance of reaching Gov. Andrew Cuomo's desk. Read the full story in the Albany Times Union.
