Cuomo Prods Trump to Ban Military-Style Assault Weapons

By JOE MAHONEY

The Niagara Gazette mentioned NYSBA’s Task Force on Mass Shootings and Assault Weapons. The article also appeared in the Lockport Union-Sun & Journal.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo called on President Donald Trump Monday to use his executive authority to ban assault weapons and allow authorities to seize weapons from people who pose a danger to themselves or others.

“Let him sign an executive order that says I declare an emergency in the United States of America because innocents are getting gunned down, and here is my policy — ban assault weapons, ban high capacity magazines, universal background checks, red flag laws,” Cuomo, a Democrat, said.
