East Garden City is not part of Garden City . This incident did not involve a GC resident or the GC police. The GC Patch should focus on village residents and our police force. I can read Newsday for other news.

It was NOT an assault rifle, it was a semi-automatic rifle. An assault rifle is a rifle capable of select fire.

I'm so glad our gun loving friends keeping reminding us that AR-15 rifles are not "assault" weapons. By the way, this is what an AR-15 Stag rifle looks like: http://photos.gunsamerica.com/d/6133-1/stag-arms-ar-15-3-gun-rifle-mounted-forward-grip-rail-sizes-side-by-side.jpg

LI Lawyer: focusing on what guns "look like" is exactly what is wrong with the gun control side of the argument. Why would we devise a ban on certain guns based on what a gun looks like?

The guy who shot off this dangerous gun didn't need it to protect his home, he certainly wasn't using it to shoot a deer, and all he did was endanger our neighbors in Garden City East. You can own a gun for protection, you can buy hunting rifles all you want, but when you shoot a wall with a semi automatic rifle that looks like a military assault weapon, you can't tell me the second amendment protects you. Do our neighbors feel safer knowing that the guy next door has a loaded AR-15?

This falls under Unlawful discharge of a weapon, and he will be punished.
