Cuomo wants additional gun control measures

NEW YORK STATE--Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state legislature have proposed new bills which will impact gun sales and their use in New York state.
With the SAFE Act in 2013, and since that time, New York has considered a number of gun control measures in response to national incidents involving mass shootings.
With Democrats recently taking full control of the New York Senate and Assembly, bills previously held up in the Senate are expected to pass.
The additional laws address removing guns from unstable individuals, expanding background checks, limiting which personnel can be armed in schools, banning bump stocks, stopping undetectable guns, adding gun buyback incentives, requiring safe storage and expanding record checks related to mental health.
The "Red Flag Law" has garnered attention as the "extreme risk protection order" could "{prohibit} a person from purchasing, possessing or attempting to purchase or possess a firearm, rifle or shotgun." Police, school officials or members of a household could ask for the court order. The court would then have to find the person likely to harm himself or others.
The second aspect of the new proposed laws that have received significant attention relates to the storage of a firearm. Under the new law, sellers would be required to inform buyers of their responsibility to lock the firearm and owners would have to use an "appropriate safe storage depository or render it incapable of being fired by use of a gun locking device appropriate to that weapon." The law specifically mentions a custodian of firearms "who resides with an individual who is under sixteen years of age or who such person knows or has reason to know is prohibited from possessing a firearm."
The bills are expected to be passed Tuesday.
