Statement From Attorney General James On The Passage Of New Gun Control Laws In The State Legislature 

NEW YORK – In response to today’s passage of a series of bills in the New York State Legislature strengthening our gun control laws, Attorney General Letitia James released the following statement:  

“Every loss of life and injury from gun violence is a devastating reminder of our shared responsibility to get firearms out of the wrong hands. Today, by strengthening our already tough gun control laws, New York has taken another step to push back on this ever-present threat. But we cannot stop with this victory, we must continue to fight against the scourge of gun violence. My office is committed to prosecuting those who continue seeking profit from the business of death and to sustaining a proactive approach that will continue taking lethal weapons off of our streets.”
