    Its amazing that in 2013 we are arguing whether or not to allow authoritarian tactics on our citizens. The lawyers on the wrong side of the constitution ought to be disbarred.

    I am concerned about law enforcements double standard, its not okay to restrict the the second amendment forcefully opposing Governor Cuomo's safe act while at the same time advocating just as forcefully that the fourth amendments restrictions should not apply because it will lead to more paperwork for these officers whose whole departmental budget comes from taxpayers. Makes you wonder if the NYPD has even read the constitution and does it not bother any lawyer who went to school for 8 years to defend the law that no serious educational requirements to enforce the law are required? I am all for the state security apparatus but sometimes you have to call a spade a spade and in this case these standings are no different than the reasoning pushed by the Third Reich, first they take your guns, then they take your rights!
