It's "feel good," legislation that will inconvenience the few that have problems clearing a background check.

According to research from federal watchdogs, most NICS checks quickly result in either a proceed or denial with between 8 and 11 percent receiving a delay response.


FBI data also shows that about 90 percent of denials over past felony convictions and 94 percent of the domestic violence protection order denials from 2006 through 2015 were identified within three business days.

At the same time, nearly a fifth of denials during the same period were overturned on appeal, often due to mistaken identity or faulty court records.

I bet Cuomo spend his nights awake dreaming of new "feel good" gun regulations to enact.

The citizens of New York elected the members of the state legislative bodies: Senate and Assembly. The bill was delivered to the governor. He didn't even have to get a cab.

The citizens kicked it off, the governor signed it. It's what the citizens want, right?

Why didn't he simply go for 30 years? It's what they actually want.

"He," doesn't have the power to go for any length at all.

His power is limited to signing or not.

The power to make it 30 years is a collaborative effort:

Citizens elect officials ==> citizen-elected officials submit legislation to committee ==> committee submits to citizen-elected Assembly and Senate for approval ==> both approve and send to citizen-elected governor.

* Should the citizens disapprove of the measure, they will elect different officials in the future who will possibly make it 30 years.

Appreciate that the 30 years would affect between 8 and 11 percent of a small population.
