New York Legislature Moves on Gun Legislation

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Ahead of the Obama administration's attempt to get some changes in gun laws, the state of New York has staked a claim first. The legislature there responded to the Sandy Hook tragedy with a late night vote that went 43 to 18. Some are calling it the the most restrictive gun control law in the country.

Democratic Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver said: "The message out there is clear after Newtown — to eradicate assault weapons from our streets in New York as quickly as possible is something the people of this state want."

I'm really enjoying the design and layout of your site. It's
a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more
enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often.

Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?

Superb work!
