IN THE NEWS - Staten Island Advance: Elected officials crack down on 'community guns,' a Staten Island scourge

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- They are stashed in drain pipes, trash cans, mailboxes, abandoned-car trunks, holes carved in walls, shrubs, bushes, and even in baby carriages.

They're called "community guns" -- firearms stored in easy-to-access spots -- and figure in a large percentage of gun-related crimes on Staten Island, said officials and law enforcement sources. 

Such weapons have also contributed to an increase in shootings this year in the borough, officials said.

The Advance chronicled the alarming trend two weeks ago.

IN THE NEWS: Bill by Staten Island's Lanza to close loophole on internet child porn signed into law

Published: Monday, September 10, 2012 by Judy Randall

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- A bill to strengthen the law against internet access to child pornography, co-sponsored by state Sen. Andrew Lanza, has been signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The new law makes it a Class E felony to knowingly access the internet for the purpose of viewing child pornography, and states that such lewd images can never be legally possessed in New York state.

The legislation closes a loophole in the penal law, which stated that if an individual viewed child pornography on a website where the images become automatically embedded in the computer, the individual does not possess it.

GOVERNOR CUOMO SIGNS GOLDEN - LANZA BILL TO STRENGTHEN LAWS AGAINST INTERNET ACCESS OF CHILD PORNOGRAPHY

Governor Andrew Cuomo today signed legislation, sponsored by Senators Marty Golden and Andrew Lanza, that strengthens the laws against internet access of child pornography.

The new law amends New York's Penal Law to prohibit individuals from knowingly accessing with the intent of viewing child pornography on the internet. Currently, under New York law, an individual who views child pornography on a website where the images become automatically embedded in a computer does not "possess" child pornography. This legislation closes that loophole. Under the new law if an individual purposefully accesses a website, intending to view child pornography, he or she will be committing a class E felony.

Published: Monday, August 27, 2012, 5:51 PM by John Annese

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- It's now the law of the state -- the governor on Monday authorized a database that tracks whether patients are bouncing from doctor to doctor to stockpile prescriptions of drugs like oxycodone.

Three years after the Advance highlighted a deadly abuse epidemic that has killed more people on Staten Island than car crashes or murder, Gov. Andrew Cuomo has signed a bill spearheaded by borough lawmakers that would turn such a database into reality within a year.
