Sharing is Caring!

ALBANY, N.Y. (WKBW) — In a press briefing on Tuesday afternoon, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced he had declared a disaster emergency on gun violence with an executive order.

The order, which Cuomo says is the first of its kind in the nation, aims to treat gun violence like a public health issue.

Following the model the state used to combat COVID-19’s spread, Cuomo says the state will work to combat the surge in gun violence in seven areas:

  • Treat gun violence like a public health emergency
  • Target hotspots with data and science
  • Positive engagement for at-risk youth
  • Break the cycle of escalating violence
  • Get illegal guns off the streets
  • Keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people
  • Rebuild the police-community relationship
