Gazette not making the right move getting rid of chess column I read with sadness Feb. 3 that the Sunday Gazette is discontinuing “Chess Corner.” I was saddened not only with the loss of something I enjoyed, but witnessing the further effect of economic pressure in the diminution of the role of the printed media.

Marcia Sykes, That Bushmaster AR-15 was in the trunk of the car and NOT used, so why are you talking about AR-15s and Sandy Hook? Those kids were killed by a handgun, why is there no new handgun regulations? I will tell you why, we have extremely strick handgun laws and it does absolutely nothing to stop the criminals. Most murders and shootings are by handgun, there are very few assult type weapon crimes ever committed. There have only been two in Schenectady in 29 years according to Bob Carney and only one death. So again, why are we regulating assult weapons?

Reminder- The primary weapon used in the [Sandy Hook] attack was a "Bushmaster AR-15 assault-type weapon," said Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance. http://www.cnn.com/2012/12/18/us/connect... And because a lot of people out there are trying to deceive the public by saying the Bushmaster was in the trunk of the car, CT police released another statement clarifying - http://www.ct.gov/despp/cwp/view.asp?Q=5... . Please don't dishonor these kids by spreading lies for the sake of advancing your political agenda.

Thanks Dan - I sometimes wonder why anyone bothers to try to set the record straight on anything with their letters. Aren't peole lucky that the 1st Amendment also allows them to pick and choose whatever they want to believe is truth.

OK that is crap, I was home and watched the Police take the AR-15 out of the trunk of the car on live TV after he was dead. So unless there is more tghan one shooter it was impossible. Where are the lab reports?
