Albany, NY (WIBX) – Even as funerals are being held for the victims of last week’s Connecticut school massacre, Governor Andrew Cuomo and legislative leaders are quietly negotiating a package of strengthened gun laws for New York State.  

The proposed deal would expand the state’s assault weapons ban to include all firearms with clips of more then seven rounds.

There’s also discussion of stiffening the penalties for gun crimes, including longer jail sentences for carrying a firearm onto school grounds.

Lawmakers have been told to be available next week in case the measure is ready for a vote.

The full package of new gun laws would likely be unveiled during Cuomo’s annual State of the State message on January 9th.
