The NYSS 'Idiot' Marcellino needs a legacy, like Sen Fuschillo has. This redundant law would give him that. You are very right though. This law, like the stupid cellphone law, are covered by reckless driving. (Jul 18, 2007 | post #151)
There we go again...Creating silly duplicate laws to fix a problem...Hey Sen. Carl Marcellino, there are already laws on NY's books that cover this. Just have the police enforce the current laws. This will probably be as well word-smithed as the cellphone law, which even our finest in blue constantly abuse while driving, and which, because of poor wording, created the loophole for texting.

Dear Dan, Sorry to inform you, but you have been negligent in the payment of your NYS Use Tax on all of your prior L.L. Bean purchases. NYS does not care if the company collects the tax, as the onus is on the consumer to pay it. Sincerely, NYS Dept of Finance (Jul 13, 2007 | post #1)
Funny, when did that become the job of the NYC Mayor? Since when does he have jurisdiction outside of NYC? It is the job of the BAFTE, though. If you would take the time to look at the stats, you would see is that NYC's (and that of NYS) problem would benefit from CCW, as 40+ states have shown. When something is banned, it becomes a commodity. Remember prohibition? (Jul 13, 2007 | post #11)
Silly Bloomberg, and other liberals, Tiahrt does not stop LE from getting trace data, it just stops you from getting it and suing everyone. The trace data is available to LE for active investigations. It works very simply. The local PD requests trace info from the BATFE. The BATFE pulls the data from their database and or requests the info from the FFL dealers, who inturn send it to the BATFE. The BATFE then send it to the local PD. What does not happen, and what Bloomberg, and his ilk, wants, is to Freedom Of Information Request the BATFE to dump all of their trace data for the city's personal use. So that they can sue the FFL dealers on the list. This is what Tiahrt prohibits, as this interferes with ongoing LE investigations. There is NO gun data for the Congress to free up. It's already available to the right agencies. Tell a lie enough times, and it becomes the truth. It sounds like Bloomberg, and his Mayors Against Illegal Guns, have taken their lessons from Germany of the 1930s & 1940s. (Jul 13, 2007 | post #10)
This idea is one of the worst I have heard of. All it is going to do is raise the prices of all goods to NYC. I can see it now...small business man needs to hire a night clerk, that he can not afford, so that he can receive his shipment of goods late at night. The bottomline is, NYC needs the goods and they must come into the city, anyway, anyhow. (Jul 13, 2007 | post #5)
Political Posturing! Just like the silly DWC (Driving while cellphoning) law. There were already laws on NYS books to cover this issue. But a Legislator needed to posture to maintain votes. Sure looks goods...But it sure hasn't worked, as everyone, including Nassau County Officers, use their phones while driving without handsfree devices. (Jul 10, 2007 | post #137)
With all that is wrong in Nassau County, this is what our overpaid Legislative-critte rs focus on. So now, we are now an official Bloomberg Nanny County. How delightful! (Jul 10, 2007 | post #1)
How come, in a restaurant, for your birthday, when they put a sparkler in a cake, they don't get arrested? After all, in NYS, a sparkler IS a banned firework item! Isn't it nice to see laws evenly enforced! (Jul 5, 2007 | post #108)
Everybody wants your money! Increase this. Increase that. NYS. Nassau County. Village of Freeport. With a collapsing economy in Nassau County, as shown in the Sales Tax shortfall, we are in for some very large problems. Can't wait to see what happens next quarter. (Jul 5, 2007 | post #1)
If this passes, will Rep McCarthy not run the next time, as she promised she would quit once she got what she wanted? (Jun 12, 2007 | post #18)
If the Police really want a better transportation device, they should switch from the Segway to the T3 Motion, as the Segway was designed as a Personal Transportation Device while the T3 Motion was designed specifically for Police & Military use. The T3 boasts twice the speed, twice the load capacity and greater service area per battery. But, is only a little more $$ then the Segway. The T3 is a better bang-for-the-buck for agencies.

When did the age 18 fall off the lawful adult list? You can marry at 18, you can vote at 18, but you can't pay for the alcohol at your wedding. How stupid is this? Either youíre of age, or you are not. (May 31, 2007 | post #12)
Knowing the brilliance that Mejias has used in the past to word-smith legislation, I can't wait to see this vague bill. With his word-smithing, it will probably be illegal to sip wine for religious purposes. The only social thing that Legis. Mejias needs is a disease. Do us Nassau residents a favor...Donít become a Mayor Bloomberg. Leave us alone and stay out of our homes. (May 31, 2007 | post #11)
I've been challenging my assessment for close to 18-years. My assessment has never been right. It really is pitty when the gatekeepers, owning the gate key, protest the use of the key. The Nassau County Legislature is pathetic!! Simply assess the houses on their last selling price. (May 31, 2007 | post #8)
Q & A with Alan Chwick
Nassau Gov't Dismantled...
Putting holes in paper or plink'in at cans.
I'm Listening To:
My wife & kids.
Projectile RPM = (Velocity x 720) / Twist Rate & Power Factor = (Mass x Velocity)/1000
On My Mind:
Nassau County, NY: Taxes are to HIGH; Real Estate assessments are ridiculous; we're financially broke and Tammany Hall mentality exists.
I Believe In:
VERY VERY Small Gov't and the U.S. Bill of Rights, as written!
