I think they should ban everything. *****if they ban air, babies will never breathe it and they won't have to suffer the idea of living. Big brother is out of control.

If it stops more idiots from pulling utube/jackaxx stunts like this then yeah ban it in some way, whether by quantity or by age.

If people really heard the boom as far as the falls as some are saying, then maybe the boom was caused by one or more jets from the military base there. Twice while on Kinzua I've heard them fly over and the explosive boom is enough that you may need to change your shorts.

Oh, look! On WIVB's site they have released the story about how the assault weapon ban is going to be passed. Guess NYS is becoming more like Nazi Germany everyday.

No doubt this tannerite stuff should be banned. It's evil and racist. Just think of the children.

There should also be a bronze statue erected in Busti as a solemn testament to the broken windows which resulted from this act of extreme terror.

Kids/young adults have been trying to make big bangs since forever. Be it fireworks, gunpowder, oxy-acteylene bombs, propane, CO2 canisters.......the list goes on. You give these young people nothing to do in this area, complain they spend too much time with video games and online and then when they do something like this start crapping your pants about it. Everyone I grew up with blew up something along the way. No one was hurt. Calm the heck down people. You all can live like a bunch of freakin robots if ya want, doing everything just so, bowing to all these butt head politicians if you choose, I CHOOSE NOT TO! I fought and bled for my country and my freedom once, I'll freakin do it AGAIN!!

The initial reports on the assault weapons passage appear to indicate that ALL magazines in excess of ten rounds, regardless of the type of gun they come out of, are to be removed from the state within one year or turned into the authories. Magazines of ten rounds or less are to be modified (if that's even possible) to hold seven or less rounds. If all of this is in fact true, a WHOLE LOT of unsuspecting people just got involved in this mess. The governor actually "waived" the required 3 day "cooling off period" on proposed legislation just to ram this though before people could find out what's really involved.

Isn't ammonium nitrate the baseof the bombs used by the terrorists who tried to blow up the World Trade Center in the 90's and at the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City. Was this just a stupid act or training for a terror attack?

If we could only ban idiots perhaps we would all agree there's no need to ban the products these idiots use.....get ready, I imagine even more idiots will be coming out of the woodwork trying to one-up yet another 20-year-old imbecile

"Today marks the first time in the history of man kind that a country has complete gun registration. Our streets will be safer,our police force more effective and the rest of the world will follow us into the future" Adolph Hitler 1935. What came next was the rounding up of all the registered weapons so no one was able to fight back,including the Jews who he had herded like cattle and then slaughtered them!!!! Wake up people and take a look at the reality of this situation. The politicans want our guns period!!! Give up your guns and watch the herding begin!!!!!!!!!! LIVE FREE OR DIE!!!!!!!

I wonder why this kid, who set off a large amount of explosives for no other reason than to get his jollies, hasn't been charged with anything.

I wonder who's going to be herded up first. Anyone got any thoughts?

The only thing they could charge him with at this point is unnecessary noise, he was not doing anything illegal otherwise.

@Redbird, Hitler never said that.

The closest thing Hitler ever said was, “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to permit the conquered Eastern peoples to have arms. History teaches that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so.”

That being said, I am ex-army, I own a gun, but regulating Ammonium Nitrate products just makes sense. It can be done in a way that is similar to how we track Pseudoephed sales at a pharmacy, it is just proactive policing.

So, this 20 year-old went out with some friends with several pounds of tannerite and their weapons, or should I say toys? The mentality of so many people, sane or otherwise mentally impaired, is that guns are made to be played with. So when you mix stupidity with weapons and explosives you have the possibility of catastrophe. Now, this event was far from that, but what if we added alcohol to the mix? How about some anger? My point is that too many people regard weapons as toys and that breeds irresponsible behaviors. You may be able to limit the possession of weapons from known criminals and the certified mentally unstable, but you can never control stupidity. And, there's a whole lot of stupidity out there.....

You can never prevent criminals from getting guns and anyone who believes that we can is dreaming.

If you dig into the history books you will find he did say that whats right is right. The books are where you will find it,not on the internet. Visit a library,it's there!

Oh we go again....equating a proposed ban of high powered explosives to Hitler and Nazi Germany is a little extreme, isn't redbird? Extremism among both liberals and conservatives just makes me SMH...

@Redbird, in what book is this quote attributed to Hitler? I will gladly check the facts if you provide your source.

It is not in Mein Kampf, of that I am certain as I have read that.

Here are the sources I used to check your Hitler Quote and found it to be false:



I will leave you with another quote I found while researching the facts:

"A quotation at the right moment is like bread to the famished." – Anonymous

Ok, contrary to earlier reports, it looks like you WON'T have to modifiy magazines of less than ten, but more than seven. HOWEVER you it will be illegal to put more than seven rounds in them at any given time. If you damage or lose such a magazine you may not replace it with a magazine of more than seven rounds, and those aren't generally available , so you'll end up with a single shot. The 75 page legislation can be viewed at the appropriate article on the WGRZ-TV website. It appears that "assault weapons" will have to be sold to a dealer (for out of state sale only) or turned into the state whenever you decide that you don't want it any longer.
