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?

There are a number of businesses on Hempstead Turnpike just west of New Hyde Park Rd in Franklin Square that do not clear their sidewalks of ice and snow. These sidewalks are located on a busy street with many pedestrians and a NICE bus stop that is heavily used. When these sidewalks are snow covered, it creates a serious hazard. There should be someplace taxpayers can report this non compliance so the County can arrange for snow and ice removal and the business establishments that have failed in their responsibilities can be billed and fined.

There should be ferries running from Port Washington, Glen Cove and Long Beach to Manhattan (especially the east side and the World Financial Center). Every other county in the NY metro area has a ferry but Nassau.
