Gov. Andrew Cuomo is once again casting New York as an inspiration for national action on gun control, hoping a “red flag” provision he signed into law on Monday will be taken up on the federal level.

Cuomo signed the bill flanked by rank-and-file lawmakers and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who pledged to take up a similar version of the law this week in Congress.

The New York law is meant to restrict access to guns to those who are deemed to be too dangerous to themselves or others — a bill that was part of a broader package of gun control measures considered the most sweeping since the passage of the SAFE Act in 2013.

“Guns come over borders and the lines on the map are meaningless,” Cuomo said. “It has to be done nationally. It has to be done federally. This is a uniquely United States problem.”

Cuomo has previously prodded Democrats on the national level to take action on gun legislation, going as far to suggest they adopt similar tactics that Republicans have employed to oppose new spending.

The governor has also lamented that New York’s gun control laws can only be as strong as other states.

It’s unlikely a red flag bill would be taken up in the Republican-led U.S. Senate, much less approved by President Donald Trump.

Pelosi pointedly referenced the president and his national emergency declared in order to access funds to build a border wall. She called gun violence “a national health epidemic in our country.

“Mr. President, if you want to talk about emergencies — this is an emergency,” she said.
