The Republican candidate for New York governor in 2010 says the state's new gun law shows Gov. Andrew Cuomo's clear liberal bent and the failure by state Senate Republicans to stand for conservative values.
Buffalo developer Carl Paladino says crime comes from dropouts on the street, a criticism of what he calls the unaddressed failure of city schools.
Paladino is at the state Capitol today to address the organization Turn Albany Upside Down, which says provisions in the new gun measure are unlawful.
Cuomo says new limits on magazine size and banning military-style semiautomatic weapons are common sense measures to reduce gun violence.
A group called One Million Moms for Gun Control plans to rally today in support of the law.
