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?

Raise the benefits for all sanitation workers. They work harder then any one in Nassau. They breath more toxic air in one day then the men at 911 did in six months. Look how much money those guys made.

Take down all the red light cameras in Nassau, and take all the surcharges off all tickets. How many times do you have to pay for the same ticket.

They are a disruptive public nuisance. Pass legislation for unsolicited robocalls to receive a dollar a call fine and they will soon cease to exist.

Voter turnouts for local and specialized district elections (like park districts, library boards, school board and budget, water districts etc) are dismally low. All elections should take place on election day ( 1st Tues. in Nov.) to increase voter participation. This idea seems to have universal agreement.
I realize that this might not be so simple, but any legal hurdles that stand in the way, should be confronted. Thanks
