What is needed to help solve the political corruption throughout all parties of government is quite simple - TERM LIMITS! Also, ALL POLITICIANS should be subject to ALL laws they have passed or do pass. Those two changes would make a profound difference in the American political system.

These Progressive Leftists love to re-interpret the Second Amendment and other amendments written by some of the smartest people that ever lived. What audacity and ignorance to put themselves in the same company of these Greats. I keep hearing the saying, "The United States Constitution, written by geniuses, questioned and administrated by idiots!" Unfortunately very true. I get so sick of these 'less informed' individuals spouting the left talking points while ignoring the truth.

Steve. Your statement "This isn’t to say that gun-control laws aren’t good ideas. After all, most New Yorkers approve of the push. And a push is better than no push at all.
Nor is it to overestimate the post-tragedy window of opportunity that allows a serious discussion on gun violence — indeed, the thousands of deaths from gun violence without a single major federal bill are a testament to our pathetic societal inaction." is continued Progressive Liberal fodder. You and others like you need to learn some basics. You are certainly entitled to your own opinion but NOT your own facts. To say "...most New Yorkers approve of the push." is right from the 'less informed people' but does not represent the real facts. You may get this from your main sources of information, but time to learn that the main stream media is real short on the truth. Try again using the real numbers.

Another 'head in the sand' journalist and I use the term very loosely. More gun laws to erode the citizen's rights while ignoring the real problems. Politics at its worst! Einstein put it best, "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." Another 'media' person who thinks he is smarter than the Founding Fathers regarding the Second Amendment.

Just what you would expect from Schumer and all his Liberal Leftists/Socialists, more entitlements for more votes. They continue to spend to bankrupt the system using the Cloward-Piven strategies. The Takers outnumber the Makers and that is a recipe for collapse of the US.

What a coincidence Sienna comes out with yet another of their liberal-leftist results. For all the documentation you would think they were legitimate. Funny how they ALL come to the same conclusion, yet NEVER reflect the real world. Polls (numbers) lie and liars use polls (numbers).

NYS governor, the senate & the assembly did what they do best, pass laws in a the back room in the middle of the night without reading them. It is unbelievable that these politicians who we assume have a modicum of intelligence could openly bypass normal rules to blindly vote for something they didn't read, let alone even understand. What is next, deleting the Constitution from NYS law instead of just ignoring it? These people have got to GO, because they aren't done with their assault on the 2nd Amendment.

So much for bypassing public comment using "message of necessity" to bypass normal legislative procedures that are strictly followed on hundreds of bills each legislative session. Taxation without representation is back! When will these politicians ever figure out that they are supposed to represent the people, not try to further their political careers?

Ms. Natale needs to read some history and understand the facts before developing an opinion like; "What needs to be done is to ban high-capacity weapons and require 100 percent background checks (currently, 40 percent of guns sold do not go through checks due to loopholes).
Will this stop every occurrence of gun violence? No, it will not, but I reason that occurrences and causalities will be greatly reduced."
She could not be more incorrect or naive. If it helps, I recommend you read Charles Krauthammer's piece on page A9 of the December 22 Gazette. It would help even you to better understand that your opinion is at best foolish and without logic. The 1994 assault rifle & magazine law had no impact, NONE. Criminals do not care how many laws you make they will still break them to accomplish their sick ends.

It gets so frustrating listening to these morons talking about adding more gun laws to solve crime problems. It has never worked nor will it ever work. All they would do is further restrict us law abiding citizens from buying and owning them. In almost EVERY case the guns used to commit crimes were ILLEGAL. Why don't the politicians and anti-gun people understand that? Are they so ignorant that they can't see the obvious? CRIMINALS DON'T CARE HOW MANY LAWS THEY BREAK TO ACCOMPLISH THEIR CRIMES. Add new ones and they will break them too. Einstein said it best. "The definition of INSANITY is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
