N.Y. Assembly Speaker Silver: ‘We Are Going To Ban Assault Weapons’

 The New York State Legislature was poised Tuesday to pass the first gun control measure following the Newtown school massacre. This as the vice president was set to unveil federal proposals to end gun violence later in the day.

Albany lawmakers ironed out the kinks Monday, allowing them to propose in writing new gun control measures in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting. Assuming the new bill passes — it was approved by the Senate late Monday night and will go before the House on Tuesday — it will turn into the toughest set of gun control laws in the country.
