Why is cost suddenly an issue? Fiscal responsibility and tax hikes haven't been real important to many on this board, so why now is the the cost to the tax payer important when it comes to protecting the kids at school?

Again, just pointing out the irony.

The gun issue has proven a point to me through this whole mess. Both sides are arrogant, unwilling to change assholes who mostly mock each other.

Throw in the corruption and red tape, and my God no wonder Congress blows.

Clearly the only proper solution is to expand government by putting a law enforcement official in every school in the nation at great cost to the tax payer.


Sooo... Buying guns with state funds and paying existing and more likely new employees of some state agency isn't "expanding" govt?

I assume you Republicans celebrate a local government doing what seems right for their particular area?

Oh wait, that is just when you agree with it.

Kind of like "activist judges"



So are you ready to turn in that shiny new" home defense" shotgun you purchased recently?

Problem is that your definition of what is right....is usually completely wrong.

Carry on

Conservatives are all for local government so long as it does things they like.

Please note this is in reference to a ban on assault weapons. The state already has regulations on assault weapons but he considers them inadequate, so he wants to expand those.

“I don’t think legitimate sportsmen are going to say, ‘I need an assault weapon to go hunting,’ ” he said. At the same time, he noted that he owns a shotgun that he has used for hunting, and said, “There is a balance here — I understand the rights of gun owners; I understand the rights of hunters.”

In the interview, Mr. Cuomo did not offer specifics about the measures he might propose, but, while discussing assault weapons, he said: “Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option — keep your gun but permit it.”

Oh yeah. That.

Just following the standards of selective quoting set forth thus far in these gun discussion. :)
