NY will join with three neighboring states to form a coalition to fight for tougher gun laws, Gov. Cuomo announced on Thursday.
Govs. Phil Murphy, of New Jersey;Andrew Cuomo, of New York; Dannel Malloy, of CT; and Gina Raimondo, of Rhode Island, announced the formation of the coalition in a news release, and invited other states across the nation to join.
Rhode Island'sGina Raimondo and Conneticut's Dannel Malloy agreed. "The only thing it would do is bring more guns into the school, more money for gun manufacturers, which is what the NRA is really trying to say", Cuomo said.
"Now, Rhode Island has some of the nation's strongest gun laws, but our nation has some of the weakest gun laws".
New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy says more than 80 percent of the gun crimes in New Jersey are committed with guns from out of state. The governors are saying they can not wait for the federal government to act, noting the "utter and complete inaction by Congress".
The states will collaborate on several fronts, including creating a multi-state task force to trace and intercept illegal guns and establishing a regional gun violence research consortium through their public colleges and universities. "Rather than wait for the federal government to come to its senses and pass responsible gun safety legislation, NY is joining with New Jersey, Connecticut and Rhode Island to take matters into our own hands". The governors say it's part of an effort to tamp down on buying and transporting guns across state lines.
Building on these efforts, the states, the group will also call on the federal government to swiftly enact universal background checks, an assault weapons ban and a federal waiting period between the purchase and delivery of guns. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the federal law enforcement agency that handles the illegal use and trafficking of firearms, said it generally does not comment on state and local matters. As states, we must work together to take the steps and enact the measures to protect our residents and our communities.
NY will now share that information with the other states. The consortium will be comprised of dedicated public health, social welfare, public policy, and criminal justice experts who will share and examine data to better inform policymakers nationwide.
"Despite the passage of gun safety laws restricting the purchase and carry of firearms across the four states, the lack of federal regulations preventing individuals from purchasing guns in other states and transporting them across borders has undermined state legislation".
