GOP Lawmakers Wait Out Trump in Gun Control Debate

GOP Lawmakers Wait Out Trump in Gun Control Debate

The package of legislation, five bills in all, aim to ban bump stocks, remove the gun rights of those thought to be a danger to themselves or involved in domestic violence, stretch out waiting background check periods to 10 days, and expand the scope of the checks themselves.

Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie said the majority's five-bill package approved Tuesday is another example of ny serving as "a national model for sensible gun laws" in the aftermath of mass shootings in the U.S.

Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo favors stronger gun control, but says it must be done at the federal level.

It also includes a voluntary "guardian program" named after Coach Aaron Feis who was slain in the Parkland attack, which is meant to "aid in the prevention or abatement of active assailant incidents on school premises" by allowing some school employees to be armed.

The bills instead focus on classifying schools shooters as terrorists, requiring more active shooter drills at schools, and putting in scanners to detect any guns. Senate Democrats have sought to attach gun control legislation, much of it identical to what is backed by Assembly Democrats, as hostile amendments and were voted down.

Harris said the first time he saw Woody was at the Efird baseball field in 1953 after his father was transfered to the mill. After his retirement, Durham was diagnosed with Primary Progressive Aphasia , a brain disorder that affects speech.

The bill, sponsored by Senator James Tedisco, a Republican, caused a ruckus on the Senate floor on Monday after a Democratic opponent, Senator Brad Hoylman of Manhattan, derided the idea as "so harebrained" and voted against it.

School safety was not part of the Assembly bills. Legislation encouraging lawsuits against gun manufacturers would be wonderful for trial lawyers while not accomplishing anything that actually prevents gun violence.

"I think it's really important we bring the real experts together to make recommendations", she said, also highlighting the importance of improving mental health services in schools as a long-term solution to school violence.

Democrats in the Assembly on Tuesday were able to muscle through a series of increased regulations on guns and bans on some controversial devices.

"We need balance in state government between New York City and the rest of the state", said Young, the chairwoman of the Senate Republican campaign committee.

"The Assembly majority refuses to accept gun violence and mass shootings as the new normal", Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie (D-Bronx) said.

It includes a measure that would prevent individuals determined to be a danger to themselves or others from buying a gun.

"This is not normal", Heastie said.

Heastie said he knows that for now, the measures are not going to advance in the Senate, but he said he hopes that the tide is changing for gun control laws.

"This is a seminal moment in our nation's history and we must come together to act", Phillips said in a statement, noting she is a mother of three daughters.
