New York Moms Demand Action, Everytown Applaud New York State Assembly for Passing Legislation to Prohibit Undetectable Guns
NEW YORK — The New York chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, part of Everytown for Gun Safety, today applauded the New York State Assembly for the passage of S. 1414, legislation that would prohibit undetectable guns from being manufactured, possessed and sold across New York State. The bill now heads to Governor Cuomo’s desk.
“We’re thrilled to see this bill advance to the governor’s desk,” said Allison Petes, a volunteer with the New York chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. “It’s the first step towards comprehensively regulating ‘ghost guns’ and will help keep New Yorkers safe by prohibiting guns that can be carried unnoticed through metal detectors and other security devices. We urge Governor Cuomo to sign the bill into law.”
