Re: The impact of JCLIST?

This site is unique in that it really is a go-to place for all things JC. Good luck getting a comprehensive site like that in NYC. Maybe for a small neighborhood, but not for an entire borough, let alone the whole city.

Let's assume for the moment that this is true---that more guns lead to more crime.

How is it a good solution to disarm all law-abiding citizens, leaving guns only in the hands of those who have them for nefarious purposes?
This is the only argument I ever hear from pro-gun people. "Why take guns away from law-abiding people? Only criminals will have guns!"

It's not a very strong argument. Especially since you're ignoring evidence that countries with stronger gun laws (or no guns) have less crime. Sure, the only people with guns might be criminals (or law enforcement/military). But there will be a lot less guns for criminals, reducing crime, reducing the need for you to have a gun.

Criminals with guns aren't making them in their basements. They're coming from gun factories that are producing them legally.

You ever touched a horizontal surface in a PATH or MTA tunnel? If not, brush a finger on one of the pipes hanging from the ceiling. Or just take a look at the walls on the other side of the tracks. The tunnels are gross and caked with so much soot I can understand needing a new one each year.

Re: City Council will vote on $130,000 contract to move "wayfinding'' signs out of the way of sidewalks.

That is an outrageous sum of money to move some signs. But considering how little the council seems to care about overpaying (re: refusing to get the JCPA building re-assessed), they'll probably go through with it.

Are you trying to mock me? Are you agreeing with me? Are you against background checks for people buying firearms? Do you think my point on the lax gun laws and lack of proper background checks is invalid? You're not replying to my points at all you're just saying "guess you didn't read this. guess you didn't read that." without actually saying anything of substance.

did...did you read my post at all? Performing thorough background checks instead of instant checks (or not performing them at all) would be a step in the right direction.

Do you really think that only obtaining one handgun per month is really a good enough deterrent? What does it matter how many guns a criminal or unstable person can get each month. He's still getting them. Thorough background checks are a more reliable tool for keeping guns out of the wrong hands.

I always hear this argument from pro-gun people and there's really no basis behind it. There's no logic to it.

Anyway, as much as I approve of tighter gun control laws, it doesn't really mean shit because as long as Virginia, Georgia, Texas, and other states have guns freely available to anybody that wants them, criminal elements will just head to those states. Most of the gun crime in northern and pacific states is linked back to southern states with extremely lax gun laws.


guess you didn't read the article.

Virginia has a One Gun a Month law. So how are guns in Virginia freely available?
Because you can buy a gun at a gun show before you get any sort of background check. The shooter in Times Square? his gun came from Virginia. Instant background checks if you're actually in a store mean you can get guns pretty easy too. The Virginia Tech shooter gut all his guns in-state.
A one-gun a month law isn't really enough.

From an AP article:
"In New York, four out of five guns came from out of state. The single largest source for those out-of-state guns? Virginia (with Florida, North Carolina and Georgia right behind).

The statistics run up the East Coast. In the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia together supplied more than half the guns found. In Camden, N.J., a poor city over the Delaware River from Philadelphia, Virginia was the source for one out of six guns. Virginia was the biggest out-of-state source in Philadelphia and Baltimore."

I will explain it to you: There has to be violence involved for it to be a violent act. Does this not make sense to you? If there is no violence, it's generally not considered violent. Is your puny brain making the connection?

There are plenty of non-violent drug dealers. Guys that just sit around in their apartments and sell weed to their friends. If you go to any college campus or high school you will find students that sell drugs to their friends for extra money but are not affiliated with any gangs and do not possess weapons or have any intention of ever being a violent offender. Why should these kids get charged the same as a thug in a gang carrying a gun?

Re: New Jersey drug dealers get a civil rights victory

Anyway, this doesn't mean it's ok for drug dealers to sell in front of schools now. What it does is change the law so that a non-violent drug offender doesn't go to jail for 20 years because the apartment he lives in happens to be right near a school thanks to living in a crowded city where there are schools every few hundred feet.

This will allow judges more leniency in their sentencing. This doesn't mean they get to walk off with no punishment. But it will help alleviate our overcrowded prison system, and make it so non-violent offenders aren't locked in to a system where there's no hope of rehabilitation and they just become repeat offenders.

Please read the article and know what you're talking about instead of jumping to knee-jerk fearmongering.

How about you learn about the merits of having more bikes on the road and less cars instead of just being an uneducated ass. There are all sorts of benefits, including personal health, pollution reduction, and traffic decongestion to name a few.

Re: Downtown -- Best Bar for Singles?

GoldenCicada is a great place to go if you're an older gent that wants to sit around somewhere really quiet with a couple of other older guys drinking some whisky and watching a tv.

It is not a great place to go in any other sense. But I do know a couple people that love it there for that reason. Crazy Chester might be one of those people. Certainly not a singles bar. Certainly not a bar for anyone other than those select few. And as far as I can tell, there's no wii or dumplings. There is, however, a ceiling tile that's been replaced with one of those aluminum buffet trays.

It would be great if JC could get someone like Janette Sadik Khan, the DOT commish over in NYC who has been working to make biking a viable way to get around. Without spending a lot of $$ she has made a huge impact already.
I like the effort, but there aren't any bike lanes on Montgomery or Columbus or Grand. Probably not on a lot of those. Unless you mean the bike signs?


I've been pretty confused by the signs. I thought they were indicators of bike lanes in the future but I guess not. What a waste of money. Bike path signs do exactly jack shit to help anybody. Bikers don't notice them, cars don't notice them, pedestrians don't notice them.

I fail to see how Guliani or Bloomberg have shown inner cities can be Republican strongholds. Bloomberg didn't win because NYC is super Republican. Neither did Guliani. The city is overwhelmingly liberal, and they won in spite of that, not because it's really conservative.

Except for when they boot it AND tow it. Which happened to me my first month here. Apparently they boot it, and if you don't get the boot removed in 24 hours they tow it also??? And since there wasn't street cleaning I had no reason to move my car.

It was amusing to watch the protest. I wanted to throw some eggs (brought a few) but there were too many police. The Hoboken crowd was pretty fun and was a positive crowd. Mostly just heckling and throwing out jokes and singing. I imagine the crowd at Dickinson will be more hostile, but who knows.

Take a look at their website. Aside from gays and jews, they have beef with New Jersey itself.

Why is it that the craziest of all people do the things they do in the name of God?
Because if you're batshit insane you can just say it's god talking to you and people will believe you. Then you go to church and speak in tongues and run around, fall down on the floor in convulsions and PRAISE JESUS who loved everybody except then you go out and hate everyone around you.

Rapps Beer & Soda in Irvington, kinda near UMDNJ. It's a bit far but they will special order anything you want and the prices are decent. They deliver, though I'm not sure if to Jersey City.
