Thread: HIGH ALERT: New York Legislators Debate Details of Gun Law. 95% AGREE!! Bans 10 round mags!!! :UPDATE: NY Pols Taking Lead in Renewed debate!!!

"ALBANY — Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and lawmakers have agreed they want to ban military-style weapons and high-capacity magazines, but continue to negotiate over the fine print of a broad gun-control package that would include such a ban, state officials said Thursday.

There was cautious optimism on all sides that a deal could be reached next week. The package would include key measures the governor laid out in his annual State of the State address on Wednesday, including a more restrictive assault weapons ban than currently exists in New York, background checks for the private sales of guns, tougher penalties for buying guns illegally or using them to commit crimes, and uniform licensing standards across the state.

Coupled with the gun measures would be an expansion of Kendra’s Law, which allows a judge to force mentally ill patients to be committed or to receive treatment if they pose a danger to themselves or to others. The law was named for Kendra Webdale, who was pushed to her death on a subway platform in 1999 by a schizophrenic patient. It is set to expire in 2015, and lawmakers have not agreed on whether to extend the law.

The gun-law package is also expected to include new reporting requirements for psychiatrists and other mental health professionals, requiring them to disclose when they learn that patients pose a serious danger to themselves or to others in order to make it easier to restrict gun sales to such individuals."
