      I guess the same can be said about you !!
      We don't see you advocating for stricter Gun laws, or bringing any ideas to the table to help solve these issues.

        I see John more than I see the mayor. It's stupid that you used that cliche line – advocate for stricter gun laws. What is there to advocate for? Are those in government BLIND? You are telling that the judicial system in paterson that let these criminals go with a slap on their wrist is blind? Stop making excuses. They don't need us to tell them to give these criminals maximum time. You are one of the problem. This is a no excuse forum.
