Gov. Cuomo and legislative leaders were on the verge Sunday night of finalizing a major gun-control deal that would give New York the nation’s toughest assault weapons ban, sources told the Daily News.
“An agreement could be reached as soon as ,” said a source close to Sunday’s negotiations, which continued well into the evening.
Top aides to Cuomo, Senate GOP Leader Dean Skelos and Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver have resolved disagreements over big-ticket provisions, and talks in recent days focused on the bill’s language.
“I can’t see anything killing this,” said state Sen. Martin Golden (R-Brooklyn). “The deal is going to get done.”
