With no public debate and the deal cut in private, a gun control bill could pass in Albany as early as today.
Details are trickling out, but the measure is said to be inevitable, according to a GOP leader in the Senate.
If passed, Governor Cuomo will have succeeded in passing the nation's first new gun law since the Newtown killings a month ago.
That puts Mr. Cuomo ahead of the President in the spotlight of progressives in his party who will view this and his passage of gay marriage as key tests of his 2016 prospects.
