Senate Passes Cuomo's Gun Control Bill

Late Monday night, the New York State Senate approved the nation's first gun control measure since the shooting tragedy in Connecticut just one month ago. The vote passed 43-18 in the Senate thanks to a strong Democratic vote.  The deal, named the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, or NY SAFE, would further restrict ownership of assault weapons and refine mental health laws. Governor Andrew Cuomo.



The package includes tough limits on ammunition.



The Democrat-led Assembly is expected to easily pass the measure when it votes Tuesday.

State Senator Michael Nozzolio voted against the bill.
