Gun Willies In CNY

A gun incident interrupts a middle school basketball game in Utica ...

It's a jumpy, nervous time for America!

A late afternoon basketball game Tuesday between Donovan Middle School and Notre Dame was stopped after an incident involving a 14-year old boy - who was observed by an off-duty policeman as he accidentally dropped a BB gun inside the Donovan gym - as the youth exited the facility, the off-duty cop gave chase - was joined by an on-duty officer outside - WKTV reports that the boy pointed the gun at one of the officers. The boy eventually dropped the weapon. It was then learned the gun was a BB gun.

Police say the teen will face a number of charges.

PS ::: Guns and preparedness for future "superstorms" are expected to be the centerpieces for New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo's State of the State address, to be given this afternoon at the Empire State Plaza in Albany. I'll be there!

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
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.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
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.
