I'm a dedicated and true Republican, but Gov. Cuomo is a hero and corageous leader for the action he's taken to limit guns in New York. Good for you Mr. Cuomo ... You have my support and my respect!!!

Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) has just passed into law (in the words of the Associated Press) the nation’s toughest gun restrictions” since the deadly massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School:

Jumping out ahead of Washington, New York state enacted the nation's toughest gun restrictions Tuesday and the first since the Connecticut school massacre, including an expanded assault-weapon ban and background checks for buying ammunition.

Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the measure into law less than an hour after it won final passage in the Legislature, with supporters hailing it as a model for the nation and gun-rights activists condemning it...
