Murder of two NYPD officers, one from LI, spurs tougher gun laws
New laws were enacted Thursday designed to take a tougher approach to criminals who take aim at cops.
Under the new laws, convicted cop killers will be sentenced to life in prison without parole. Previously, a convicted killer would be eligible for parole after 20 to 25 years. The laws also intend to crack down on the flow of illegal weapons.
The laws about came in the wake of a pair of NYPD slayings. Dillon Stuart, of Elmont, and Daniel Enchautegui were both killed in the line of duty in the last month.
