Statement From A.G. Schneiderman Regarding Passage Of The NY Safe Act
ALBANY ‑ The following statement can be attributed to Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman regarding the passage of the NY SAFE Act by the State legislature:
"With the passage of this legislation, our state has taken decisive action to protect New Yorkers from gun violence. By expanding the state’s assault weapons ban, limiting high-capacity magazines and improving background checks, among other measures, the Legislature and Governor Cuomo deserve credit for putting the safety of our communities first. I look forward to continuing to work together with my colleagues in government and law enforcement as we seek to expand our efforts to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people."
