(NECN) - New York Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer is joining the call for tighter gun control laws.
Schumer says people who have admitted to illegal drug use should not be allowed to buy a gun. He is proposing his new limits to several government agencies.

Schumer says accused gunman Jared Loughner should have been flagged long ago for his drug use. Loughner was rejected from the army in 2008 because he failed a drug test.
