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?

The whole area around the Coliseum will fall apart if a new facility is built at Belmont. The retrofit to expand seating has to be cost effective compared to building a new arena. The Islanders want out of Brooklyn and this is our last chance to get them back.
