Albany, NY (WIBX) - Governor Andrew Cuomo is expected to make a public push for gun control legislation in the coming days.

The "New York Daily News" reports Cuomo will launch a major public-relations blitz on Senate Republicans with help from national and state anti-gun groups if GOP lawmakers in the Senate balk at gun control legislation.

Cuomo is already panning a plan unveiled over the weekend by Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos that tightens restrictions on illegal guns, but doesn't move toward a ban on assault weapons.
