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?

This is the second year in a row there is the possibility of a Triple Crown winner at the Belmont Stakes. Since the Islanders have left this will be the biggest sporting event on Long Island for the foreseeable future. There should be several days of festivities leading up to the race such as: concerts, a big-time golf tournament, street fairs in every community, local beer, wine and food tastings, school marching band competitions, 5k races, a magnificent parade etc... People fly in from all over the world for the Kentucky Derby. They should for the Belmont Stakes too! AMH
