What is it with landlords who don't have insurance on their buildings? How is that allowed? Renters should have their own insurance for belongings, but landlords should not be able to rent apartments in uninsured buildings.

Does this mean that free and reduced price lunches will no longer be available in Niskayuna, or does the school district now absorb that cost?

What becomes clear from digging around in all of the debate among the founders as they formed the constitution is that there is a great deal of ambiguity in regard to their intent, and that intent varied greatly among individuals. In short, their is nothing clear about the reasoning or intent behind the 2nd Amendment, no matter what anyone on either sides says.

wmarincic- There is significant historical evidence to suggest that the 2nd Amendment's primary purpose was not about keeping us free, but, instead, about keeping others enslaved. Keeping us safe could, perhaps, be seen as one of the reasons, but it was not safety from foreign enemies or a tyrannical government - it was safety from a slave revolt.

Actually, the UK does NOT have an outright ban on all guns - only handguns. The London Metropolitan Police web site lists regulations and provides permit applications: http://content.met.police.uk/Site/firear....

It's fascinating the degree to which people throw around statistics without offering citations or context.

My grandfather was born in Ilion, and lived there almost his entire life. He also worked for Remington. I feel for all of the workers at the Arms plant, and for the people of Ilion. That said, the appropriate response to their economic needs is for the state to offer assistance in drawing in other businesses and forms of manufacturing, not ignoring the gun problem.
