Tonawanda News — This is for Mr. Obama and all you gun haters. And Bloomberg and Cuomo and all you gun haters. I am not ever gonna give up my guns. I’ll give up my guns on one condition; you give me a portable laser. A handgun laser. Then I’ll get rid of my guns. You give me a laser instead, then I’ll get rid of them.

I’m watching Rock Center on television and they are talking about Jose, who has become an engineer. He is undocumented. Well they’re using undocumented instead of saying illegal. And then they have a Marine, but they’re all here illegally! They can’t get a driver’s license. Well their parents should have known better. They should have come in legally. They are saying it’s such a waste. Well what about the waste it is to the rest of us that they have come in here and taken the jobs. No matter how you slice it they have done something illegal. They have to start over. A fine, a penalty isn’t good enough because things are going to be taken away from our children who are here legally.

It just shows you that you can get away with murder in the United States. But get caught with a little bit of weed and you go to jail for a long time. Something wrong with that system.

At the end of the year you’re gonna wish you had Sarah Palin as a president instead of this goof. This guy has done nothing for you Democrats. What do you think he’s gonna do in another eight months? You Democrats are really gonna find out aren’t ya? Especially if you own small businesses. The taxes are gonna come down on you like a hammer! Like you woke up in the twilight zone. If you think Obama is that good, you don’t know what a good president is supposed to be like, do ya?

  • OUR VIEW: Arson suspect never deserved bail Two of the 11 fires reported on Fifth Avenue could have been prevented with some jurisprudence in evaluating whether the suspect, Michelle Johnston, deserved to be offered bail. Given the obvious nature of a repeat offender who was charged with nine felony arson counts, bail never should have been offered in this case.

  • duvall, eric.jpg DUVALL: On reading and the lack thereof It was surprising to me a few weeks ago when a friend asked a group of us to estimate how many books we have each read over the last five years. The English teacher said 200 and he far and away led the pack. I was probably the median and my number was 20-25.

  • duvall, eric.jpg DUVALL: Conflict in Ukraine now a concern of global proportions It seems increasingly clear Ukrainian separatists, with the help from the Russian military, are responsible for the tragedy. They, of course, have denied it. They've also denied access to the crash site to international investigators seeking to recover the dead and determine what happened. That's not something the innocent party does.

  • ADAMCZYK: Personal development, rendered in steel Accepting the premise that everyone needs to fill the same amount of time every day (24 hours, every day), some people use theirs rebuilding things, tangible things, and thus fulfill a few intangible goals.

  • WALLACE: Festival season is underway Summer is the season of fairs and festivals. From Canal Fest in the Tonawandas to the Allentown Art Festival and Italian Heritage Festival in Buffalo to the Erie County Fair in Hamburg, the Western New York area has no shortage of things to do with the family over the summer.

  • duvall, eric.jpg DUVALL: King George's abdication leaves many questions I've covered Niagara County politics for 10 years and it's been a fascinating -- and often infuriating -- experience. With the news the man known with equal parts respect and cynicism as "King George" is walking away it's about to get more interesting.

  • Canal Fest, here we come This column should be titled "Roads and Streets." First of all, Meadow Drive is finally open. Although it took very long to be completed, it's beautiful. Riding by the other day brought into focus how many people will use this to cut across town. One less thing for residents to complain about.
