Cuomo Calls for Gun Control in Eulogy

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo issued another call for national gun control legislation during a eulogy Saturday for Carey Gabay, an aide of Cuomo’s and top state attorney who was killed by a stray bullet this month before the annual West Indian Day Parade in New York City. “His death was one of the most tragic, pointless examples of the rampant violence that is spreading like a cancer through our society, especially in our poorer communities and especially in our communities of color,” Cuomo said. He added, “It is not enough for New York State to pass a gun law and close the front door when the guns are coming in the back door, when the guns can come up from Virginia or South Carolina for anyone willing to take a car ride.”
