In 2018, New York Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) praised the “comprehensive” gun controls adopted by her state after the Sandy Hook shooting and pushed for the adoption of even more gun control via a red flag law.
Hochul will be taking over as governor of New York as current Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday he is stepping down due to a sexual harassment scandal.
In a press conference titled, “Advancing Gun Safety,” which was held outside Ellenville High School in 2018, Hochul praised Andrew Cuomo (D) for signing sweeping gun controls into law following the December 14, 2012, attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School.
