Albany, N.Y. - New York state leaders made public statements Saturday on gun control.
State Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos, a Republican, submitted a plan to prevent gun violence.
His proposal includes stiffer penalties for criminals who use guns to commit felonies, life in prison without parole for people who kill on-duty emergency responders and stronger punishments for those who use guns in gang violence.
On the democratic side, Governor Andrew Cuomo responded with this one line: "Any gun policy that does not ban assault weapons ignores the reality of gun violence and insults the common sense of New Yorkers."
Cuomo is expected to address gun control during his State of the State speech on Wednesday.
