 A new report today says that Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo told sheriffs around New York to stop voicing their complaints about the state's new gun control law.

 Members of the NYS Sheriffs Association were summoned to the State Capitol last month to discuss the law adopted after the Newtown, Conn., school massacre. They thought they were going to discuss potential changes to the law.

 The Albany Times Union takes the story from there.

UPDATE: Later Tuesday, Cuomo, when asked about the sheriff's' claims said:  "That's not my recollection of the meeting at all."
