The New York State Legislature reconvened in Albany this week for the 2009-2010 Legislative Session with members of the Senate electing a new Majority Leader, State Senator Malcolm A. Smith (D-14).
The newly elected Majority Leader has assigned State Senator Eric T. Schneiderman (D-31) as the Chair of the State Senate Codes Committee, replacing long-time champion of gun-owners’ rights, State Senator Dale Volker (R-59). Senator Schneiderman is one of the most well known advocates for gun control to ever serve in Albany.
