NRA President: Cuomo’s Gun Control Proposals Won’t Reduce Violence

NRA President David Keene said Wednesday that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s call for stricter gun control measures won’t do anything to reduce violence.

“I was amazed he said other states will follow New York,” Keene told the Brooklyn GOP Radio podcast. “They haven’t done that in the past. New York already has very tough gun laws, as you well know. Much of what the governor proposed, in terms of so-called assault weapons and the like, isn’t going to make any difference one way or another in terms of violence of any kind in the state.”
