ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Only days after calling for an overhaul of gun control in New York following the Connecticut school shooting, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says a tough proposal on gun control is ready to become law.
Cuomo said lawmakers now have a gun proposal negotiated with legislative leaders. The Senate and Assembly could vote on the law Monday night. Cuomo has issued an order dispensing with a three-day waiting period for all legislation.
The deal includes a tougher assault weapons ban and restrictions on ammunition and the sale of guns.
The provisions also would create a mandatory police registry of assault weapons and a more powerful tool to require the reporting of mentally ill people who say they intend to use a gun illegally.
