New York: Sen. Boyle reverses, says repeal new gun law

A Long Island state senator who voted for the state’s comprehensive gun control law now wants to repeal it.Sen. Philip Boyle (R-Bay Shore) said yesterday that the law, championed by Democratic Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo as the nation’s toughest, “was a mistake.” The freshman senator said the bill was rushed   the Senate acted on it just hours after it was printed   and that it went too far in limiting assault weapons and ammunition magazines.”Its passage lacked transparency and public input and its wording was ill conceived and of questionable legality,” Boyle said in a statement. “Lawmakers like myself might have caught these mistakes if we were given more than two hours to read the bill. A good leader admits a mistake and works to rectify it. That is what I am doing.”
