Gun Control Package Passes Legislature

Governor Cuomo says the gun control bills approved this afternoon by the state legislature are "common sense" measures to reduce gun violence.

One allows teachers, family members or police to ask a judge to take away guns from people who pose a risk to themselves or others. Another bill would expand the timeline for background checks on gun purchases from three days to 30 days when three days isn't enough time to clear a buyer. Another measure bans the possession and sale of bump stocks and 3D printed guns. 

The bills were passed over objections from Republican lawmakers who now are a minority in both the Assembly and Senate.
