ALBANY, N.Y. (WHEC) — It may soon be illegal for you to win a gun in a raffle, at least if a new bill in the State Assembly passes.

Currently, only alcoholic beverages are banned from being won in games of chance, such as raffles or bingo games. The proposal would add guns to that list.

The State Senate is expected to introduce a similar law. Neither measure will considered, however, until lawmakers return back to Albany in January.
