2. Governor Cuomo signed the bill with strict

new gun laws

<snip>

New York governor Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday signed into law one of the nation's toughest gun control measures and the first to be enacted since the mass shooting last month at an elementary school in neighboring Connecticut.

The bill passed the Democratic-led assembly on Tuesday afternoon, a day after sweeping through the Republican-majority senate.

The bill expands the state's ban on assault weapons, puts limits on ammunition capacity and has new measures to keep guns out of the hands of mentally ill people.

The measure also mandates a life sentence without parole for anyone who murders a first responder. Just two weeks after the massacre in Connecticut, an arsonist gunman ambushed and killed two firefighters responding to a fire he had set near Rochester.

7. I'm very pleased with my state today.

This is what quick and decisive action looks like.

And I'm very grateful to all of the Republicans who were on board with this. If only their reasonableness would infect the rest of their party...
