Governor Cuomo’s Statement on the Terror Gap

December 6, 2015
 
 
ALBANY, NY – “As if it weren’t common-sense enough, it is clearer now than ever that members of Congress can no longer sit on their hands and shirk their responsibility to protect the American people – they must close the terror gap. This loophole does nothing more than help radical people kill innocent Americans, and it must be closed. The fact that reform continues to languish illustrates the stranglehold the NRA has over Washington, and it’s time for our elected leaders to show the political courage to vote for the safety of the American people.
 
“I stand with Senator Schumer and demand that Congress close the terror gap.”
editors note: (the terror gap, refers to the loophole in federal law, that does not forbid those who are on the terror watch list, from buying weapons.)
