NY Takes Step Forward In Stopping Gun Violence, Passes Law To Restrict Guns For Domestic Abusers

New York has pushed forward in the fight against gun violence. On Saturday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) announced that the state passed a legislation that will strip guns from any New Yorkers that have been convicted of domestic violence.

The bill passed the state Assembly by 85-32 and Senate by 41-19 this week. According to Cuomo, the new law will make the sate “safer and stronger.”

“New York is once again leading the way to prevent gun violence, and with this common sense reform, break the inextricable link between gun violence and domestic violence,” Cuomo said in a press release on the governor’s website.

The new law will force convicted domestic abusers to turn in any firearms, including rifles and shotguns.

“The recent wave of mass shootings is horrifying, and the federal government’s failure to act on any form of meaningful gun safety laws is unconscionable,” Cuomo said.

“This legislation builds on our gun laws — already the strongest in the nation– to make New York safer and stronger.”
