Take it to the next level todayalice. The government should red flag and evaluate your mental state too. Not just people with gun permits but psychotic bloggers as well. Watch out! Your "Lefty" friends are coming to get you!

NOTHING in the Senate bill would have prevented the Conn. tragedy. I listened to Barack Obama's speech with those parents being used as props. I've also seen other parents of kids killed in the same shooting. They were against Obama's plan because it did nothing about keeping the mentally ill from getting weapons. Where are those parents being seen and heard? Not on the mainstream media networks and certainly not on Air Force One. The vast majority of Americans are aginst more gun laws because the ones we already have are not being enforced. Sen. Cruz from Texas stated that since Obama has been in office, 15,000 felons have broken the law by applying for firearm sales and the Obama DOJ has prosecuted exactly 44 people. Few people know that the universal background checks originally called for would have created a national registry and that law enforcement would have been allowed at any time to invade your home,without a warrant,check your weapons and possibly confiscate.

The current administration, both in Washington and New York could not pass the proposed gun laws based on the facts because the facts prove the laws will do nothing to stop violence. As is typical of liberal politicians, when they can't win with the facts they resort to name calling or emotion to get their way. Obama is carrying it to a new extreme in using the Newtown families to push for the agenda which was developed before Newtown and was just waiting for him to be reelected.

In Cumos case he pushed through his agenda while passions were high and before rational people could absorb what was happening. Now they are going back and fixing many aspects of the bill and being sued for the illegal way it was passed.

It's all about politics and law abiding gun owners are paying for the governments refusal to address the real problem of drugs, gangs, and the mentally ill.

Isnt this typical?

Democratic Rep. Diana DeGette drew national criticism Wednesday for remarks made at a public forum in which she said banning high-capacity in ammunition magazines would be effective in reducing gun violence because "the bullets will have been shot and there won't be any more available."

For the benefit of those who would insist that the gov't. would only confiscate illegal weapons, know that recently thousands of privately-owned weapons have been confiscated by the authorities with no criminal charges having been filed. A better question for all of you anti-gun violence advocates to ask is "Why in these times of money shortages in the Federal budget, has the Dept. of Homeland Security recently purchased billions of rounds of ammunition. Enough ammunition to shoot every man,woman and child in America more than SIX times"? It is on record that Obama,in a public speech, stated that he wanted a civilian army that would be bigger and better armed than our own military. I would appreciate any of his ardent supporters giving the rest of us any and all of the good reasons for this "army" that would answer to Obama.

For the benefit of bobbo: Here is a post I posted this morning. The government may feel free to evaluate as you requested bobbo. Now post another one of yours?? carlaw Apr-14-13 5:35 AM Agree | Disagree "Until healthy living happens in more homes in Chautauqua County, all other efforts are a waste." Yes! As with most problems, personal responsibility is the only solution.

For the uninformed, an AR15 is a small caliber bullet, hardly a high powered round.

Great letter. Too bad for us that the loons in our current state government are happily pecking away at innocent people for the crimes of others. Just like the state fining the innocent families and children of Panama 5 million dollars for a paperwork error. This is what our STATE has come to. The Wolf in sheep's clothing is here to stay and he is ravenous. He needs easy targets.

Alice the replies to yesterday's letter were no more than a joke. No substance just 2 fellas arguing about who the lier is. When jazzie showed up and hammered you I honestly shed a tear of lafter. Absolutely priceless. Then she showed again. Now she's a good lefty. If the pj wants a blog of any Merritt they would make you disappear again. Every time you show up it turns into a three ring circus. Ralphie you are truly an*******

Aj. You have single handedly destroyed this site multiple times now. Do everyone here a favor and pull your chair away from your desk and go get some air. Your redundancy is something that should be diagnosed. Week after week of I know you are but what am I is a sickness. I use to think you were fairly intelligent but now I think you fell off the fence. You use to actually have valid arguments. Your the perfect example of why some people don't want gays in the bs. You push yourself on others. Don't you understand where your not welcome. What a pathetic way to face life each and every day
