Gun control gets attention from state Republicans

WBFO File Photo

Governor Andrew Cuomo is expected to target stricter gun control laws in his State of the State address on Wednesday.

Senate Republicans got a jump on the issue Saturday by introducing proposals that would stiffen laws regarding the possession, sale and use of illegal guns.

The party did not mention assault weapons, but the Independent Democratic Conference, caucusing with the Republicans, is planning to propose the toughest assault weapons ban in the nation.

Saturday & Sunday 6 a.m. to 12 p.m.
