"All of our states are already ahead of the federal government when it comes to laws on this issue", said New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Mr. David said he did not know how many guns have been seized on the basis of New York's list.
The states will also share the findings of law enforcement agencies about where illegal guns came from and how they are transported to the Northeast. It now contains the names of about 77,000 people who can't purchase a gun in NY. The states are also asking schools and higher education institutions to partner together to create the nation's first Regional Gun Violence Research Consortium.
"We want to send a powerful message to the entire country that it's possible to strengthen gun laws and save lives", said Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo.
"Rather than wait for the federal government to come to its senses and pass responsible gun safety legislation, NY is joining with New Jersey, Connecticut and Rhode Island to take matters into our own hands".
Similarly, New York State has a database of tens of thousands of people deemed too mentally unstable to carry firearms but those names are not part of the federal database that other states would use to see if they are eligible to buy a gun.
Cuomo described the measures recently floated in Washington, including a ban on so-called bump-stocks and an increase in the age at which teens can purchase assault rifles, as "crumbs" that would do little to curb violence. Given the inextricable link between domestic violence and lethal gun violence, this legislation will require all firearms be removed from those convicted of domestic violence crimes, including misdemeanors.
