NEW YORK (1010 WINS) - Gov. Cuomo signed two gun bills on Tuesday. One banning 3D-printed guns and the other requiring safe storage of firearms in homes with children. 

“These measures continue New York’s legacy of enacting the strongest gun laws in the nation by helping keep firearms out of the hands of children and by acknowledging and addressing technological advancements like 3D-printed guns,” Cuomo said.

Selling, possessing, transporting or manufacturing a 3D-printed gun becomes illegal with the signature of the bill while the safe storage bill will enact in 180 days. Children at the age of 16 are still allowed to use a gun with proper license and supervision. 

These bills in New York follow shootings at a food festival in Gilroy, California and at a Walmart in Southaven, Mississippi.
