New York state’s new gun law sacrifices liberty for security I am pleased with the continuing public New York State Safe Act (gun) debate, as it is a great example of citizen discourse on an important public matter. Too bad our state leaders blew us off, refusing New York citizens the opportunity to provide input as is customary prior to an actual vote. Prior public input would have refocused our politicians on real violence prevention ...

Re Smalkin - Bravo - you've learned the talking points very well. Yes, the war was approved, but based on the misinformation presented to the Congress.

"...the will of the people and votes still count for something."

REALLY?

John, you're kidding, right? Tkaczyk received six digits two weeks before the election from George Soros' brother and immediately plowed that money into negative TV advertising. She gave a Communist front group (Working Families Party) over $12,000 for "consulting."

Her campaign donor list reads like an Occupy Wall Street membership list. She is owned, not by the people, but instead by the very special interests she allegedly deplores!

What hypocrisy!

Muggy-- How quickly they learn their trade. All of them puppets for the wealthy. We as voters need to follow those strings and see exactly who runs this country.

Kurt Semon, Exceptional comments. The NYS SAFE Act is nothing but a political feel-good measure that infringes on our Constitutional rights and doesn't address the real problems. If you haven't already, feel free to read an opinion letter by Mr. Brendan Duffy of Sandy Hook, CT, published in the Newtown Bee (newtownbee.com) in early January. I do believe it pretty much states what most people with any semblance of intelligence feel today.It is time for the vast silent majority to become non-silent, and stop being led around by idiots who have no idea of the realities of the common working man. Of course, we elected these people; what does that say about us? I understand that there will be another rally on February 12th.

A defense of Hillary and attack on Amedore on the same day. Please list Hillary's 'accomplishments'. 4 Americans were murdered on 9/11 in Libya and she is somehow not involved. Hillary Clinton was unfit for Secretary of State hand has been a total disaster for America. It's okay to buy a State Senate seat as long as it goes Democratic. If the GOP did it would be on the top of the editorial page for months.

Gene Whitney It was the anniversary of 9/11. She was in charge, she let them die. She is unqualified, non apoligetic and a liar of the 1st caliber, just like her husband and her boss Obama.

On September 11th, 2001, he was in charge. He had been warned of the attack. He let them die. He is unqualified, non apologetic and a liar of the 1st caliber...
