Governor Andrew Cuomo is launching a bus tour aimed at rallying state lawmakers toward a so-called "red flag" gun bill. 

Cuomo kicked off the tour Monday morning outside of Evander Childs High School in the Bronx.  He also stopped Old Bethpage John F. Kennedy High School in Plainview.

The governor previously announced his desire to see a law that would empower police, teachers, and family members toward petitioning a judge if they feel an individual in possession of a gun could be a danger.

"New York will not stand by and wait for Washington to take action against the gun violence and school shootings that have become all too common in this country,"  Cuomo said. "Parents should not have to fear sending their children to school every day and teachers should not have to wonder if they will return home from work. Together, we can and will pass this common sense gun legislation and we will continue to fight to ensure gun violence has no place in this great state."
