CONNECT NY

Gun Violence in New York State

Preview: Season 7 Episode 8 | 30s

An increase in gun violence has led Governor Cuomo to declare a state of emergency and pledge millions to reverse the trend, attributing it to a lack of programs for at-risk youth, as well as an influx of illegal guns across the border. Critics, however, view Cuomo’s order as executive overreach and blame the spike on the state relaxing laws such as cash bail.
