2. UPDATE-Sheldon Silver Expects Vote on Gun Bill Tonight: “We’re Very Very Close.”

Lawmakers are bracing for a late night in the state Legislature as negotiations toward a tough new assault weapons ban and other gun-control measures appear just about done.

“I believe we’re very, very close to a final agreement, “ Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver (D-Manhattan) told reporters Monday after speaking at a Family Planning rally at the Capitol.

Silver said there was “very little” blocking an agreement, with the biggest outstanding issue involving school security and how much school aid is needed to boost student protection.

“The clear thing is we are going to ban assault weapons,” Silver said. “We are going to eliminate all of the loopholes that existed previously…It will ban assault weapons, period . Even the pre-1994 will not be able to be transferred.


The rest of you folks will be catching up, right?
