Gun law should be model for U.S.

The new gun restriction law passed by New York state’s Legislature is a good beginning down the path for making a dent in reducing weapons on our streets.

Hopefully, the rest of the states will follow suit and begin to pass tougher gun laws. It is time for the citizens of our country who are fed up with all the killings to stand up and be heard loud and clear.

Nobody is looking to take away the rights of law-abiding citizens to own guns — only to restrict the types of guns people should be allowed to own.

There should be no reason for citizens to possess assault weapons. Those should be restricted to the military and police.
