Reasonable controls are nothing to fear
In response to Mr. Davis’s letter (“Blame criminals, not objects, for killings”) in the June 12 Gazette.
I don’t want to take your guns away. My husband has had guns all his life. He hunts to put food on the table and has done some target shooting. He was taught to never point a gun at someone, loaded or not loaded.
I know there are responsible gun owners out there.
Mr. Davis stated why not blame the unstable shooter. How can a gun shop owner tell that a person is unstable? What does the law-abiding citizen fear about having a background check done? With a background check, it should include some way to check if a person has had any mental problems.
I’m not sure if that can be done without violating a person’s privacy, but maybe there should be some exceptions. If a person wants a gun, they should waive that right.
Why would the law-abiding citizen worry or care about a waiting period before he/she can take possession of a gun? Are they afraid the gun will get up and walk away because it wasn’t taken home that day?
With all this, I can’t help but question if someone would give me a logical explanation why the average citizen needs an AR-15? Please don’t tell me it is your Second Amendment right. That is not a reason. It’s just a response. Think about it.
Tedisco should be ashamed of strategy
Shame on you Jim! Not only have you turned your back on Schenectady County that has supported you since 1983, by running in a district that you don’t even live in, you have ousted a sitting Republican senator in the district that she lives in. You are a coward!
It’s time for both you and Neil Breslin to retire. I don’t think he has ever been to Schenectady County and surely has no idea where Montgomery County is.
I moved away from Albany County to get away from the corrupt Democratic machine that still exists there today. I will be supporting Rich Amedure 100% to unseat Breslin and bring integrity back to Albany, something you don’t have.
Thank you, Daphne Jordan, for being true and authentic in your representation of your constituents.
It has been an honor and privilege in getting to know you and calling you friend.

Stefanik continues to spread disinformation
Thanks for the great article (“Stefanik touts ‘counter message’”) by Andrew Waite on the Sunday, June 12, edition front page on Rep. Elise Stefanik and her continued spread of disinformation intended to further her career.
Incidentally, her husband, Matthew Manda, is the manager of public affairs for the National Shooting Sports Foundation ironically headquartered in Newtown, Connecticut, where the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass murders took place.
