Keeseville dissolution

TO THE EDITOR: Now that the people of Keeseville have voted to dissolve the village, the mayor and Village Board have to come up with a plan to move forward.

I question the ability for this to happen seeing that the mayor and some board members have expressed they didn’t agree with the dissolution.

I would hope that Gerry Morrow and Sandy Senecal are allowed to have input to this plan. I would also like to see Tim Booth and Phil Pray involved, as they are the highway supers who are gaining the streets that will need to be maintained.

I would like to see this so the village officers will have a good plan in place so that those of us who took the time to go and vote will not feel it was a wasted effort on one of the coldest days so far this winter.




Flawed law

TO THE EDITOR: Professor Chartock states in his editorial that Cuomo’s new gun law is good but flawed.

He’s half right. The law certainly is flawed but not in the way he indicates.

Many aspects of the law do nothing toward the purpose, which is to stop the slaughter of innocent Americans. The magazine-capacity provision, for instance, bans the actual usage of thousands of firearms in the hands of permit-holders but has no effect on those possessed illegally.

I would guess the number of illegal handguns outnumber the legal ones many times over. I expect the re-certification provision will reduce that ratio even further by making the cost unaffordable by many.

I do agree with the professor about one thing, though. I would like to see a list of pistol-permit holders published for all to see. I would feel much more comfortable knowing that my kids were playing in a house presided over by a pistol-permit holder.
