Re: “Mayor Bill Peduto wants to excuse students for today’s Global Climate Strike, but he likely can’t

Mayor Pedunklehead is a moron, far left whacko who is trying to set up future voters for himself.

He signs permission slips, and one of these kids gets hurt, well, the city and ol Billy Pedunklehead are going to get sued..

Whatta dipshit

Re: “Reports suggested that Downtown Pittsburgh had a crime wave this summer. But it didn’t. What actually happened?

I would like to see reporting regarding the increase in rapes downtown. Where exactly is this occurring and what if anything is the city doing, other than deploying the Mayor to accuse everyone who raises safety concerns of hating the poor. And with due respect to professor Harris, more police presence should be helpful in preventing rape.

Re: “Giant Eagle is urging customers not to open carry firearms in its stores

The Second Amendment does not guarantee that all people can carry any gun anywhere they want. Past Supreme Court decisions have put limits on that right. For example, in the Heller case of 2008, Justice Scalia wrote "Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose."

I'm glad that Giant Eagle is asking people who carry guns to stay away. They should go further and ban guns from their stores. They're a private company. They have that right.

Guns make us less safe, so the fewer non-professionals there are toting guns in public, the safer we all are.

Re: “CNN anchor Van Jones, Rep. Ed Gainey advocate probation reform in East Liberty

I think that this event should also take place in Philadelphia, who by the way, holds way more people in jails (Local County Jails), then any other county in the entire state!.

Okay, so Wood St Station had a crime wave. That's where everyone is at night as they wait for the bus, so it's still bad.

How do we know that there wasn't a crime wave, what confidence do we have that the police department is not down-grading crime. I have no idea whether they are or not, but it's obviously possible.

Re: “Giant Eagle is urging customers not to open carry firearms in its stores

In 57 years, and in a few states, I have never seen anyone open carrying except the police. Or hunters going on a trip. Who the hell open carries. Personally I think you'd be the 1st one shot. Not to bright if you ask me.

Re: “Giant Eagle is urging customers not to open carry firearms in its stores

HELL NO it's my Federal Law Constitutional Second Amendment Right to Carry my Gun my way. I'm not putting my life in danger of someone shooting my ass or my family's friends and other people. You need to be worried about the people that carry more than one and illegal weapons and hide them. I'm not shopping at your store I'm going to Shop N Save. Your stores protect no one there. YOU CAN SAY THANK YOU WHEN AN LAW ABIDING CITIZEN SAVES YOUR LIFE AND YOUR CUSTOMERS. YOU WILL NOT TAKE MY RIGHTS AWAY. YOUR EMPLOYEES AND CUSTOMERS ARE SITTING DUCKS WIDE OPEN FOR TO BECOME VICTIMS OF A NUT TO SHOT EVERYONE. SINCE ALL YOU STUPID COMPANIES ARE ANNOUNCING THIS BAN OF LAW ABIDING CITIZEN THAT ARE NOT NUTS AND WOULD SAVE EVERYONE IF CAN. DEMOCRATS CRY YOU BEND TO SOCIALISTS. FREEDOM TO CARRY LEGALLY. WAKE UP GIANT EAGLE AND ALL COMPANIES LOSING BUSINESS. THERE ARE MORE GUN OWNERS THAN LOW INCOME FOOD STAMPS AND NOT MANY PEOPLE DON'T HAVE GUNS ANYMORE NOW A DAYS. LEGAL GUN OWNERS AND CARRY OPEN IF YOU WANT DON'T LET COMPANIES DICTATE YOUR RIGHT TO BARE ARMS AND CARRY OPEN IF WANT TOO. NO SOCIALISTS WILL WIN OVER GUN OWNERS AND OUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHT.

Re: “Conflict over Bloomfield’s Little Italy Days festival is coming to a head. Where does it go from here?

Richetti has to go !!! Hes making too much money.....and losing sight of what this festival is all about. As far as him taking suggestions to make changes.......i did meet with him face to face.... he didnt want to hear my suggestions......along those lines, he isnt giving the local talent any prime times or stages. Randy Galioto as Elvis draws the biggest crowd, and is consistently given sunday @ noon ! and, at the farthest stage. Jimmy C
