New York already has some of the toughest gun laws in the country, and the debate over new restrictions here reflects a significant change in the national conversation over guns, as states and the federal government grapple with whether and how to limit the possession of weapons that have been used in multiple mass killings in recent years.

Mr. Cuomo, a shotgun owner, has long spoken in favor of tougher gun control but has not used his considerable political muscle to make the issue a priority over his two years as governor. Now, citing the recent killings, he is seeking to strike a deal that could be used as a model in other statehouses.

“I think what the nation is saying now after Connecticut, what people in New York are saying is ‘Do something, please,’ ” Mr. Cuomo told reporters recently.

But gun rights groups have seized on the comment, even promoting a petition on the Web site of the White House that declares, “We do not live in Nazi Germany,” and asks the Obama administration to block any effort at confiscation by Mr. Cuomo.

Since the shootings in Newtown, Mr. Cuomo has been trying to negotiate an agreement on gun laws with legislative leaders in Albany — he even contemplated calling them back into special session last month — and the talks continued into Tuesday, as the governor sought an agreement before his speech.

According to people briefed on the talks, the governor is considering not only rewriting the state’s assault weapons ban, but also proposing more expansive use of mental health records in background checks of gun buyers, lower limits on the capacity of magazines sold legally in New York and a new requirement that gun permits be subject to periodic recertification.

NY Times article -- Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, pushing New York to become the first state to enact major new gun laws in the wake of the massacre in Newtown, Conn., plans on Wednesday to propose one of the country’s most restrictive bans on assault weapons.

New York is one of seven states that already ban at least some assault weapons. But Mr. Cuomo has described the existing law as having “more holes than Swiss cheese,” and he wants to broaden the number of guns and magazines covered by the law while also making it harder for gun makers to tweak their products to get around the ban.

Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, will outline his proposal in his State of the State address, but even before he speaks, he has incited anxiety among gun owners by acknowledging in a radio interview that “confiscation could be an option” for assault weapons owned by New Yorkers. Since that interview, Mr. Cuomo has not mentioned the idea, and his aides have acknowledged that it would be impractical.

"We need modern weapons to contend with modern weapons in our time. "

You expect to fight gangs of criminals, all while minding your own business?

outdoors All weapons are a threat when in the wrong hands. it was true in the time our constitution was written and it is true today.

The citizens of the mid to late 1700's felt that they needed then modern firearms to protect themselves from not only the oppressive government imposed on them by Great Briton but also to protect themselves from attacks from Native Americans and from the criminal element that also existed at that time. Many of these people lived far from the support of the government or any help from that quarter.

There were murders, rapes, and theft in those times as well. There was organized crime and the trading of humans. Yes they needed their firearms as well. The did not rely on the antique arms of their time to fight with, they depended on the modern arms of their times for protection. I did not confuse the arms of then and now and will not be led into that comparison. We need modern weapons to contend with modern weapons in our time. This is what they and we were granted. It is what they fought for and included in the constitution they provided for us to live under and by.
