|I like English sparrows almost as much as I like the NYS Legislture|
With Upstate that is a real shame. Even as this is typed our legislators are passing rules that will regulate guns, in many cases for simple cosmetic features. Of course these laws will only affect the law-abiding....
Meanwhile, commentary and polls around the region range from 85-90+% AGAINST these new measures. Gun shows are busier than ever, with people eager to show their support for the Second Amendment. Waiting lines an hour long for admittance are not uncommon.
Does anyone in the capital either know or care what their citizens want?
Sadly, the answer is obviously no.
And even more sadly, by a week or so from now, some new hot story du jour will have taken center stage and by next November everyone will gleefully reelect these clowns.
Maybe it is time to move west.
