New York lawmakers agreed to pass the toughest gun control law in the nation and the first since the Newtown, Conn., school shooting, and now dare other states and Washington to follow.
"I think when all is said and done, we are going to pass a comprehensive gun bill today," state Sen. Jeffrey Klein told reporters Monday. "I'm very excited about it. I am very confident we are going to vote on a comprehensive bill that will be agreed on by the governor, the Senate and Assembly."
Sen. Jeffrey Klein, leader of the Independent Democratic Conference in the Senate, said it is landmark legislation.
