Episode Info:

State lawmakers on this week adopted the first major batch of gun-control measures in New York since the SAFE Act of 2013, and pledged they won't wait another six years before revisiting state firearm laws.

The package of bills would enable New Yorkers to seek a court order to temporarily remove guns from people who are deemed a danger to themselves or others, ban bump stocks, prohibit teachers from being armed in schools, establish a fund and guidance for local gun buyback programs, and extend the period for completion of background checks to 30 days.

While Democrats and gun control advocates were celebrating, most Republican lawmakers found themselves on the opposing side of the issue. To explain their position, the podcast turned to GOP senators Patrick Gallivan and Daphne Jordan.
