Incongruity In Our Government?

March 14, 2013

To The Readers Forum: I read with interest the February 28, Jamestown Post-Journal Associated Press report on Governor Cuomo exempting television and movie use of “assault-type” weapons....

Who is DHS going to arm with all that stuff they are buying? The new national police force?

Indeed. Too bad the idea of "buy up all the guns! Man your houses with turrets and buy 1000's of ammo rounds! The government is going to destroy us!" paranoia does nothing but exacerbate the lack of wisdom and logic in the country. Both sides are ripping up the solutions.

Irony, you are correct, in both cases it is a person that is responsible, the gun is just a tool, which is exactly why we do not need any additional laws focusing on guns and gun control. Focus on the people, not the tool.

"A gun, in and of itself is inert."

It goes both ways. If guns don't kill people, they don't save them either.

I wonder if they will give special consideration to super-sized sugary drinks for movies in NYC depicting a pre-Bloomberg era?

Cuomo also gives $25 million in state tax credits to attack and retain Hollywood Film productions. Whlie at the sam time CUT state tax credits available to manufacturers and small business...guess he cares more about employing movie extras in NYC than he does about creating good paying manufacturing jobs in our end of the state.

Just one of "the people" on a golf weekend down South because he pays more in taxes than most of us make...ya gotta feel for the guy. Watch out for those evil crackers below the Mason-Dixon gio. They love their guns.

see dog. I can sympsthize with your frustration, and I understand fully. I can reassure you that I take no degree of satisfaction in refuting your accusations DIRECTED AT THIS ADMINISTRATION, and your vindictive insults hurled at me that backfire regularly. I will sign off now --see ya on Monday noon-the sunny sky of n.c. calls,and my clubs are in the trunk. Keep the faith.

Pitiful. You brought up Gran Torino. And proved you don't know a rifle from a shotgun. Dance all you want.

"now class, put down your crayons and pay close attention--author---"right wing movie moguls" clint very empty chair eastwood--IS a "right wing movie mogul" repeat that very s-l-o-w-l-y--SEE YA." You're right gio, obviously I resort to childish insults. Now since you are such a mature and wise adult please school me on this: What is your take on the author's statement about the governor? Not about the right wing vs. left wing, but your honest opinion about the fact that he is allowing movies that glorify violence and assault weapons to be filmed in this state?

How can we have a conversation about guns when gio doesn't know a M1 Garand rifle (30-06) from a shot gun? Racial slurs killed how many? It was essential to the movie, and sometimes accurate. It wasn't Cinderella. Obama invites n word users to perform for him, applauds criminal thug thizzlers like lil wayne.

maddog--Why would anyone avoid an honest ddiscussion with you? My point is your constant childish insults, and baseless accusations make that an impossibility--but please continue--without my assistance.

Can we please get back on topic here and talk about what a scumbag this governor is for using a tragedy to try and take away our rights, while hypocritically allowing movie productions to continue to possess and utilize the exact same weapons while in this state? Last time I read the second Amendment I don't recall it saying "the rights of Hollywood shall not be infringed", it says "the rights of the people shall not be infringed". I know that our friends on the extreme left fringe have comprehension issues, but this is ridiculous.
