Celebration and outrage, after quick passages of the New York SAFE Act. New Yorkers remain bitterly divided on the issue of gun control.
The law was passed six days after the Governor unveiled his proposal in his State of the State Address. His smile was the seal of approval after a week at the Capitol that will go down in the books. A proud moment for a governor who saw 'priority number one' during his third year in office get swiftly pushed through the legislature.
A bill born out of tragedy - New York becomes the first state to pass sweeping gun legislation following the Sandy Hook Elementary school massacre.
“I am proud to be a New Yorker. I am proud to be part of this government. Not just because New York has the first bill, but New York has the best bill,” said Governor Cuomo.
