The horrific mass murder in Las Vegas has re-opened the national debate on gun control. Those in support of a ban on assault weapons and semi-automatic rifles believe there is no good reason for citizens to own guns capable of mass murder. Those against want freedom to own any type of gun, and feel it's a violation of their 2nd Amendment rights. Would you support a nationwide law to ban the sale of assault weapons and semi-automatic rifles?

Currently, several states in the USA have an expungement process for persons who have been convicted of a felony. New York doea not. It is a life sentence even after you have completed probabtion or prison sentences. It prevents you from joining the military, voting, employment, etc. Once you have completed youyr sentence there should be a way to get it off your record for the remainder of your life.

What good is the small claims process, when the set you on your own to do the collecting where as you have no power to collect or knowlwdge of it? The process would have alot more clout if the Gov't would assist in the collection part! Alot of people simply get away with stealing with no penalties at all.....

Currently over 90% of all cases heard in the courts are No-Fault which are cases brought by Doctors to recover no-fault fees from insurance companies. Since these are two entaties that are in bed with each other most of the time mandate that these disputes be resolved through arbitration. This would save the county millions and we wouldn't have to serve on jury duty as frequently.
