Cuomo’s open letter to Trump after Texas shooting: ‘Do something’

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo begged President Trump to “do something” in an open letter Friday, just hours after 10 people were killed in a Texas high school shooting.

Gov. Cuomo says Trump’s words are meaningless without action.

He goes on to list seven mass shootings followed by the question: “When is enough enough?”

Cuomo has long been vocal about gun control, and the state has passed the nation’s strictest law on assault weapons.
