Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed gun confiscation into law for New York on Monday.
The law allows that “family members, school administrators and law enforcement officials can seek to get guns confiscated from people deemed by courts to be an ‘extreme risk’ to themselves or others.”
On Monday Cuomo said the law, which will take effect 180 days from the date of signing, “will save lives and doesn’t infringe on anyone’s rights.” “The Red Flag Bill is now law,” he tweeted. “The Red Flag Bill will save lives by empowering school teachers to do something when they believe something bad is going to happen.”
