The other day I was sending a friend a link via Facebook messaging and the preview of the link came up as a spam site, even though there was nothing wrong with the link. I told my friend that the only way that could happen is if Facebook itself was hacked, which I was pretty surprised by. I'm guessing this may be related? The article doesn't really say what the hack was.

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.

But the topic of the letter is the federal law. Why would you just change the topic in comments? Anyway, where is the poll you're talking about? The only poll about the NYS law I can find is the Siena poll ( http://online.wsj.com/article/AP81ec84db... ) which says 65% of NYS residents support the new law.

I just did a quick Google search to see how the public polls about Obama's gun control laws. Every aspect of it has majority support - http://www.businessinsider.com/obama-gun... I also looked up CBS's poll... they say 54% support stricter gun laws - http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-5756...

How about the ability to pay city taxes online? Since every homeowner in Schenectady has to pay taxes four times a year, I'd assume there's even more demand for that than building permits and park reservations combined.

Was this proofed before posting? The MSNBC video he refers to as "further investigation into the Connecticut shooting" was less than a day after the shooting when no one knew the details of what guns were used and MSNBC was dead wrong in their reports. Wait a month and some people whose clear intention is to get their way by deceiving the public and trying to make the mainstream media look bad, just rehashed this old video because it says (wrongly) what they want it to say. And then blame the media for (correctly) later saying that the Bushmaster rifle was the one used in killings, as if the truth is some attack on gun rights. This video has been circulating among those on the right as "late breaking news from MSNBC", doing their best to conceal the fact it's long-since disproven news. So much so that the Connecticut State Police had to put out a press release last week ( http://www.ct.gov/despp/cwp/view.asp?Q=5... ) clarifying just what weapons were used. This letter is a parody of the truth and frankly embarrassing that The Gazette would print it without such a disclaimer.

Roosevelt said “There is nothing to fear but fear itself.” at his first inaugural address in 1932, mostly referring to the depression we were currently in. The day after Pearl Harbor, the catch phrase was "A day that will live in infamy". This letter also says "many [letters and editorials] have called for banning guns altogether." Where? I have not seen any. The only ones I've seen talking about banning guns altogether are the pro-gun crowd. It feels like something just made up to get people on their side. There's just too much wrong with this letter to take it seriously at all.

I believe the guns are banned to sell in NYS, but they're legal to own if you already have them and they're registered.
