    Dumb decision by Crean to have a small guard such as Hulls in the last play of the game vs. Butler when you need a defensive stop!

    Btw… (because it relates to one of the stories above) I admired Boeheim’s comments on gun control after their last game. He is a hunter and manages to have proper perspective on the situation. I live in Maine and at least 50% of my friends are avid outdoor sportsmen. I would never advocate a reversal of the 2nd Amendment. But in no way do I think anyone needs an semi-automatic weapon with a big clip. What purpose does that serve that a different rifle could not? Why do you need to be able to squeeze off 45 rounds per minute?

    I applaud Boeheim for using his stage for something bigger than his program.

    I laugh at all the rednecks who say, “We need assault weapons in case the government tries to take us over.”

    So many stupid things with that, but let’s say it happened.

    All the Feds have to do is put a drone over your house and you’re gone in 1 minute.

    Please be advised over 85% of the 300,000,000+ firearms in the possession of Americans are considered semiautomatic. America will not be going back to single shot or single action weapons.

    Brother-in-law works in gun shop. Yesterday they sold out stock of AK’s within 90 minutes opening @$1000 plus each.

    Semi-automatic sells fine. Stoping the sell of automatic assult weapons fine.

    Sign in a store yesteray advertising machine guns & silencers.

    Utah you would be hard pressed to find a guy who is unarmed

    Would you consider an AK-47 with a banana clip or a AR-15 with a 30-round clip, modeled after the military issue M-16, as in anyway necessary to civilian self-defense, protection or legal hunting?

    Why are silencers needed? I don’t know any of my hunting friends that use silencers when hunting deer, moose, or pheasant…

    There are certain types of guns, and certain size clips that are meant for military use and killing humans… Those are the ones that don’t need to be in the hands of citizens.

    Btw, the next town over from where I live is the home of Windham Weaponry, formerly known as BushMaster, which makes the AR-15. I find it intersting that I haven’t heard anything in the local news about the connection.
