NRA sues over New York gun control

(CNN) - The National Rifle Association's New York state affiliate filed a federal lawsuit Thursday in Buffalo contesting the constitutionality of the SAFE Act, the sweeping gun-control bill Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law in January, the group announced in a press release.

The new laws fortify New York's existing assault weapons ban, limit the number of bullets allowed in ammunition magazines and strengthen rules that govern the mentally ill, which includes a requirement to report potentially harmful behavior.

Polls vary on how N.Y. gun laws affect Cuomo

(CNN) – Just how much did the stringent new gun laws pushed by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo affect the Democrat's approval rating?

A Siena Research Institute poll released Monday showed 58% of New York voters approve of the job Cuomo is doing, down from 60% at the beginning of last month. But a Quinnipiac University survey released last week showed a sharper drop in Cuomo's approval rating, from 74% in December to 58% at the end of January.

Cuomo signs first post-Newtown gun legislation into law

(CNN) - Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into a law Tuesday a new package of gun regulations to fortify the New York's existing assault weapons ban, limit the number of bullets in magazines and strengthen rules that keep the mentally ill from owning firearms.

The state measure is the nation's first gun-control bill since the December 14 massacre in Newtown, Connecticut that left 20 elementary school students among the 27 killed by a gunman who then committed suicide.

The measure was approved by the GOP-controlled Senate on Monday and the Democratic-led Assembly on Tuesday and was quickly signed by Cuomo.

President Barack Obama will unveil national proposals which the White House described as "concrete" on Wednesday.

But now it's coming from a high-profile governor, signaling what could be a major move in the renewed push for tighter gun laws after the Connecticut elementary school shooting last month–a massacre that capped a year marked by other high-profile shootings.

Christie comes to Washington

Washington (CNN) – New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie was in Washington, D.C. Thursday for meetings with President Barack Obama, House Speaker John Boehner, and other officials regarding relief for Hurricane Sandy, aides to the governor said.

Christie's visit follows a similar trip to Washington earlier this week by New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, while both men push for federal funding to aid their states after the late October storm ravaged parts of the Northeast.
