Critics assail Cuomo’s gun deal as secret, rushed

Critics assail Cuomo’s gun deal as secret, rushed – Gov. Andrew Cuomo is being criticized by a good-government group and rank-and-file lawmakers for rushing his gun control law through secret meetings to make New York the first state to enact a measure since the Newtown, Conn., tragedy. Dick Dadey of Citizens Union says the closed-door negotiations followed by immediate votes were unnecessary for a bill in which most measures aren’t effective for 60 days. Dadey says public input and debate makes better laws.
