How far will Cuomo go to take guns?

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion One of the web definitions that I located of what a misdemeanor is could be is as follows: “A misdemeanor is a minor offense, rather than a serious crime. A minor infraction like keeping a library book for years or stealing a pack of bubblegum would be considered a misdemeanor.”Now if this is a part of the proposal that Cuomo will introduce, which I do believe it is, it truly shows how anti-gun the governor of New York is and how he will continually try to introduce any and all legislation that will make gun ownership a challenge or next to impossible in this state. But I wonder, does his legislation also include and identify all law enforcement personnel who either carry handguns and or all long guns, either on their daily jobs to guard and protect Cuomo or for just recreational sports the same criteria, as all it does other citizens of New York state? If this is so, then if an officer of the law is charged and convicted of a misdemeanor, does he or she lose their jobs because they can’t, under Cuomo’s proposed law, legally carry a firearm? Hmm, just a thought. Maybe Cuomo’s proposal doesn’t cover everything he’s trying to legislate. Why not add parking citations. And just to be sure everything is covered, include jay walking as misdemeanor charges, too.Rick SplawnikAmsterdamEditor’s note: The governor’s proposal would expand the confiscation of weapons to misdemeanor crimes related to domestic violence, including assault-and-battery and strangulation.More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusThree seniors who started as seventh-graders providing veteran experience for Amsterdam golf I’m writing in response to The Daily Gazette’s endorsed Cuomo’s proposal that all individuals convicted of misdemeanor charges, instead of just felonies, would require the suspect to forfeit long guns along with handguns. This requirement would mandate all judges have the defendant surrender his firearms and license until the domestic violence charges are resolved. last_img read more

Trump is nation’s biggest disgrace

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion I have just turned on the news about our president — who has proved to be, probably, the biggest disgrace our country has ever known. He’s beyond arrogant. I have no words to describe the shame and horror this despicable man has brought to this country.  To trash anyone and everyone who doesn’t agree with him is beyond description. I only hope that some of his admirers are intelligent enough to admit they just possibly made a big mistake — or that someone with more intelligence than Trump (that shouldn’t be hard) can get this man impeached quickly (ASAP) before he nominates Putin to be his BFF (best friend forever).I have never been so ashamed of this great country. Are we no longer the land of the free and the brave? Remember the big deal because the football players didn’t “honor” the flag because they didn’t stand for the national anthem? What has this president done to honor the United States of America? There’s more disrespect in Trump’s behavior than anything I have ever seen in more than 80 years of living here. He’s despicable.Pat BruschettiCanajoharie  More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationGov.
