Just a month after Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the strictest gun control law in the country, state officials plan to make some exemptions.
The law toughened restrictions on military-style rifles and high-capacity semiautomatic handguns, but those restrictions will be changed so those types of weapons can be used on the sets of television shows and movies being shot in New York.
â€śWe spend a lot of money in the state bringing movie production here, post production here. So obviously we would want to facilitate that,â€ť Cuomo said.
