New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli on Passage of Historic Gun Legislation

New York took a bold step to curb gun violence and make sure that our communities are safer. The Governor and Legislature were right to take swift action and pass sensible legislation to expand the state’s ban on assault weapons and pass tougher measures to ensure that guns are kept out of the wrong hands. As a state and a nation, we must find common sense ways to end the tragedies caused by gun violence. States across the nation should follow New York's lead.
