New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo joined activists in New York City to call for stricter gun control laws Wednesday.
As part of the “die-in” stunt, protesters convinced Cuomo to lie down on a sidewalk in Zuccotti Park, despite the fact that he was wearing a suit.
The governor made sure to adjust his tie.

After lying on the ground, Cuomo chanted with the crowd, “What do we want? Gun control! When do we want it? Now!”
Recently, New York City eased laws on public urination and defecation in public, and Zuccotti Park is often the location of these incidents.
The liberal governor has regularly called for greater gun control in his state and nationally. New York has one of the strictest gun laws in the country.
