"Gun Crisis" resolved in Albany : Pass a law, Get Over it?

This is interesting. In my Google RSS reader this morning. Public attention/fascination/outrage associated with guns is over - at least in Albany, if this information is accurate!

Here's a snippet or two:

...the Albany gun show took place in the State owned convention center in the Empire Plaza and not a protestor in sight. There were record crowds though... the show went on without so much as whimper from the anti-gun crowd. No Yepsen or David Soares, no Move-on bullhorns. No fire breathing ministers or crying women, no one tried to stop me from taking pictures...

...a  community forum on guns and gun violence was held Saturday afternoon in Albany. Sponsored by Albany County DA David Soares, Albany Police Chief Steven Krokoff, Albany SNUG and Assembly member John Mcdonald, among others. The event was billed as an attempt to extend the "gun conversation" throughout the community. Guess what happened? Six adults and a baby showed up. I guess Albany didn’t get the memo from Susan Steer about how important this is.Don’t believe me. See video. The video was up and the link was LIVE when this article was posted: I suggest you view it before it is taken down - In the past I've seen local news videos from this particular station "disappear" so catch it while you can!

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
