Even though the gun fight may be over at the state Capitol, the war of words across the nation goes on. That's what lawmakers, state and federal, were saying today in Albany.
Passing gun control legislation here in New York wasn't enough for total efficiency here in New York, and that's why what happens in adjacent states and in Washington is so vital to gun control proponents.
Even though the sweeping gun control legislation approved Tuesday by the New York legislature should substantially strengthen the state's gun control laws, it's not perfect and much more still needs to be done, according to freshman Albany Assemblywoman Patricia Fahy.
"It was such a big step in the right direction. Now I only hope that federally they can do more," said Fahy.
"It's better to have New York's laws then not, whether the federal government does something or not," U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer said.
