It's absurd that Mr Pike should have to waste his time defending himself. Apparently his "neighbors" and his critics can't grasp the concept of private property.

Pretty simple Chuck. The Due Process Clause in the 14th amendment prohibits state and local government officials from depriving persons of life, liberty, or property without legislative authorization. The second amendment guarantees the right to keep and bear arms. People are put on the no fly list without due process. Therefore, prohibiting people on the list from purchasing or owning firearms is unconstitutional.

Chuck, Do you call people names, and hurl insults because you know that you have no facts or evidence to support your opinions, or are you just not smart enough to realize how foolish it makes you look?

Can you please explain why the NRA gets blamed for something that none of it's members partake in?

I didn't even finish high school and I could've told you this when the casino talk started. Show me one geographic area where gambling has improved the overall economy in a sustained manor, the only possible exception being Vegas. Atlantic City's neighborhoods surrounding the casinos are still poor and run down, even after going through the gambling boom which is now obviously over. The two casinos in Connecticut never turned into anything more than gambling destinations even though they both offer considerable shopping, dining, and recreation in an elaborate setting, etc, etc, etc.
I have nothing against gambling, I hope I'm wrong in this case, but it looks like history is on my side.

Ms Walsh, Apparently you fail to realize that outside of The People's Republic of New York City, concealed carry permits are very common, and relatively easy to obtain. More than likely, you are surrounded by armed persons on a daily basis. Upstate NY has a very high percentage of legal firearm ownership, and a relatively low crime rate, unlike NYC, Washington DC, and Chicago, all which have neanderthal like gun laws, and crime rates which are out of control. In fact, take a drive a few miles east into Vermont, which has no gun restrictions, and consequently, the lowest crime rate in the country. Before the peanut gallery replies that Vermont has no population, the population of VT is about the same as the tri-city region, 650,000.
Mr. Bahr, You cite the United Nations as a credible source for accurate statistics. That alone disqualifies the rest of your stated opinions.

"It would also require the support and assistance of the Obama administration"
That's the same administration who, without due process, places innocent Americans on the list. Our freedom was a nice little experiment while it lasted, shame that the electorate voted it out of existence.

Define "reasonable" people, certainly not the author. Rather than point out the fact that this hit piece is, in kind words, absolute nonsense, I'll tell you to google "Dontray Mills gun trafficking plea deal" and let us know how those existing gun laws are working out.
BTW, why is it that the NRA constantly gets blamed for actions that none of it's members partake in?

Nonsense like this is why NYTs circulation is in the toilet. Sulzberger has always been a nutjob, but this is off the rails, even for him.
There are only two categories of people who support gun control. The first, are incredibly ignorant fools who blindly follow what tyrants dictate, and the second, are the tyrants themselves.

I can't seem to find the article in the United States constitution authorizing the federal government to hand out money to a private entity merely to keep them from closing.
That being said, I'd like to see the results of giving $116,000.00 each to 600 small businesses that were started here, and aren't going to leave here. We'll never know the results, since those of us who own small businesses don't have deep pockets full of campaign contributions.
