New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) and leaders in the state legislature have struck a tentative deal to usher in a bold new gun control law, the Associated Press reported on Monday. The deal would make New York the first state to institute new gun-related measures following last month's mass shooting in Newtown, Conn.
From the AP:
The tentative agreement would further restrict New York's ban on assault weapons and limit the size of magazines to seven bullets, rather than the current 10. Other elements, pushed by Republicans, would refine a mental health law that allows for civil confinement of people determined to be a threat to others.
