By L.D. DAVIDSON For The Sunday Gazette Let’s ignore media hype and political bombast for once. Now that the excitement about sensible gun control measures is past, it is high time to refocus on New York state issues of high content value.

Mr Davidson,
I won't even bother explaining why you're 100% wrong on your minimun wage opinion, those of you who don't understand freedom, and who are trying to destroy the free market will never listen to reason.
But your outlandish statement, "The new gun control legislation makes us feel better, and it certainly gives our ambitious governor a freshened national profile" is outright laughable, better than comedy central laughable. Are you so insulated from the rest of the country that you don't know that NY is a laughing stock? The rest of the country, excluding the northeast, Chicago, and urban California, are normal people. The only good thing that comes out of Cuomo's illegal gun grab is that he now stands zero, absolutely zero chance of being elected anywhere outside of NY. Why do you think Diane Feinstein's natioinal gun grab legislation is dying a quick death on capital hill? There's no way it would pass, even in the Dem controlled senate.
And BTW, by time Cuomo's illegal Stalin like measures have overturned by the courts, it will have cost the taxpayers millions in wasted litigation fees.

Mr. Davidson,
Please read Milton Friedmans's books.
I am sick of hearing the words FAIR AND CHANGE. Try living in the real world of economics.
Please define the word FAIR. Please define the word CHANGE.

Well, I guess the easily duped, servile, corporate lap dogs have spoken.

Where's wmarincic? He usually manages to demonstrate his profound ability to parrot AM/FEAR!/HATE!, radio when topics like this come up.
