Excerpt:

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is widely expected to propose new restrictions on assault weapons in his State of the State address Wednesday afternoon — a response to the recent mass shootings in Aurora, Colo. , Newtown, Conn. , and elsewhere. Cuomo previously described New York’s assault weapons regulations as having “more holes than Swiss cheese. ”The topic is likely to incite heated debate in New York, which is one of seven states with some restrictions on the purchase and possession of assault weapons. Cuomo pointed toward stricter gun measures in a December radio interview on WGDJ-AM. “Confiscation could be an option,” Cuomo said in that interview. “Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option – keep your gun but permit it.
