Last weekend's shooting spree at the Hudson Valley Mall in Ulster County has gun control advocates renewing calls for a ban on all assault weapons.
They are asking the governor and the state legislature to quickly pass an assault weapons ban on the state level. They said the gun that was used in Sunday's shooting was a Model 47, which is a copy-cat of an AK-47. Model 47s are legal, but activists said they are equivalent in strength to banned AK-47s.
Andy Pelosi of New Yorkers Against Guns said,"The shooter is reported having two 30-round magazines. New York law says that your limited to a 10-round magazine."
Statewide representatives from the National Rifle Association said they share the grief of the community over Sunday's shooting. However, they said trying to control criminal behavior by restricting the freedoms of citizens is not an effective way to control crime"
they bring up old cases and use that to support their legislation when the time comes...
That's the real tragedy of this guy's "the criminal broke the law, so let's pass another law" thought process.
