A gun control package continues to be debated in Albany

Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver says any such bill will not include bullet micro-stamping because Senate Republicans refuse to consider it. Any micro-stamping law would require shell casings to carry unique markings, which supporters say would help solve gun crimes.

The package being talked about by Governor Cuomo and legislative leaders focuses on expanding the ban on assault weapons and putting in place new registration restrictions.
