It seems that Finizio is out of touch with reality.

Officer Todd Lynch is a fine union leader and quite capable of doing his job. The way I see it, Finizio can't buy Lynch and he is simply frustrated because Lynch gets to him. Finizio does nothing more than smear Lynch with his idiotic statements and puts the blame on him.

It's clear to me that the mayor and chief are trying to get rid of anyone who speaks out against them in order to get control so they can further destroy this once fine police department.

The mayor and chief should be ashamed for destroying this department that took so many years of hard work to build. It makes all of the officers look bad. It's not the fault of the department, but its leaders. Department supervisors should be trying to assist their officers, but everyone can see that they're running scared too.

As a gun owner, I support these registrations and bans. Irresponsible gun owners give a bad name to the rest of us who exercise our Second Amendment rights responsibly. Guns are only as safe as the people who own them.

As a gun owner, I will be registering my weapons. Whether I agree with the reasoning behind it or not, the threat of a minimum of one year in prison for violations is enough incentive for me to comply.

As a gun owner, I feel these mandatory registrations and the bans infringe upon my rights. I am a responsible citizen and I will be exercising my Second Amendment rights by refusing to comply with these mandates.
