    New York is on the way to becoming the first US state to tighten gun controls since the school massacre in neighbouring Connecticut last month.

    Measures include a wider ban on assault weapons, limits on ammunition capacity and tougher sentences.

    The bill was expected to be passed by the Democrat-led state Assembly after being approved by the Republican Senate.
