NEW YORK: Gov. Cuomo Planning Nation's Most Restrictive Gun Policy

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo delivered his State Of The State address in Albany today and and outlined a plan that some are calling the most restrictive gun control policy in the nation.
Governor Andrew Cuomo said he wants to make New York’s gun laws the toughest in the nation, pushing to ban weapons with “military-style features” and eliminate loopholes that allow the sale of large-capacity magazines. The 55-year-old Democrat released his plans today in a report that coincided with his third State of the State address in Albany, the capital. The proposal would allow the state to suspend or revoke licenses and confiscate weapons, close loopholes in the 2000 law banning assault rifles, flag large bullet purchases and require background checks for gun sales between private parties. “Some weapons are so dangerous and some ammunition devices so lethal that we simply cannot afford to continue selling them in our state,” the report said. Current law “is so riddled with loopholes and so difficult to understand that it has become virtually unenforceable.”
Cuomo's plan is already being denounced on Breitbart, where the headline mocks him because fewer people were killed by guns this year in New York City.  Therefore there's no problem.
