From the New York Times, we read:
"I don't think legitimate sportsmen are going to say, 'I need an assault weapon to go hunting,' " he [Democrat Andrew Cuomo] said. At the same time, he noted that he owns a shotgun that he has used for hunting, and said, "There is a balance here - I understand the rights of gun owners; I understand the rights of hunters."
In the interview, Mr. Cuomo did not offer specifics about the measures he might propose, but, while discussing assault weapons, he said: "Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option - keep your gun but permit it."
