All of which makes me glad I live 2,000 miles away... As noted previously, Gov. Pataki has called a special session of the legislature to pass more gun restrictions.
Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver has proclaimed that Pataki and the state senate are actually in the pocket of the NRA and are not going to go far enough in further restricting gun ownership. Brady Campaign has endorsed Silver's approach.
On the other hand, Republicans are saying that Silver is actually out to derail the special session, loading up the bills with extra stuff in order to generate the appearance of "doing something" about crime.
