"We're not waiting for federal action". In New York, for example, people who are the subject of protection orders are barred from purchasing firearms.
The multi-state database will "supplement the federal National Instant Criminal Background Check System, trace and intercept guns that are used in crimes as well as guns transported across state borders and launch the nation's first Regional Gun Violence Research Consortium".
The quartet of governors also announced the possibility that public universities could become centers for research into gun violence.
The creation of the States for Gun Safety is the first major step toward gun reform taken by any states since the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School last week. "All of our states are already ahead of the federal government when it comes to laws on this issue", New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.
Governor Cuomo and his Democratic counterparts - Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy and Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo - said the coalition was necessary because of the inability of the federal government and Congress to effectively deal with the issue of gun violence.
The governors of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Rhode Island have announced plans to create a regional task force, including state law enforcement and intelligence officials, to fight gun violence.
CT has a law barring people subject to a temporary restraining order from buying guns, but those people can easily travel to another state and purchase a firearm, Malloy said.
Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy said part of the effort is to target guns sold within the "gun show loophole". "However, we can not wait for Congress or the President to act". "It would be great to see states up and down the Iron Pipeline sharing information".
Among other things, the states plan to share information they say could prevent people who pose a risk to their community from buying a gun across state lines. The consortium will include researchers in the areas of criminal justice, public safety, public health, public policy and social welfare, according to the memorandum of understanding.
"Despite the passage of gun safety laws restricting the purchase and carry of firearms across the four states, the lack of federal regulations preventing individuals from purchasing guns in other states and transporting them across borders has undermined state legislation". The states are also asking schools and higher education institutions to partner together to create the nation's first Regional Gun Violence Research Consortium.
