Cuomo Climbs Onto National Stage With Anti-Gun Push

posted on October 31, 2015

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is pledging to get more involved in national gun politics and has forged an alliance with the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. Cuomo will hit the campaign trail in 2016 to emphasize what he calls “the big issue” in national politics—so-called “gun violence.”

“The political climate is right again for action,” Cuomo declares. His efforts with the Brady Campaign will be spent working to crackdown on the improper dealing of firearms. In his role as national spokesperson, he will also be lobbying to bring other governors on board. 

Cuomo has a long history of anti-gun activism and was responsible for the “emergency” SAFE Act bill being ramrodded through the New York State Legislature—it bypassed the three-day waiting period for legislation and passed with no hearings, no testimony and no time for opponents to state their opposition.
