I would never bring a NJ registered or high capacity handgun into NY state, you will go to prison.Read More Wish CC was reciprocal, but a responsible gun owner should not make this mistake. Hope they don't make an example of her, but she is obligated to know the law.

The article states "Her permit to carry and conceal is only applicable in Pennsylvania".Read More That is incorrect. There is reciprocity is 33 other states but NOT in NJ.

After another baby dies after being left in a hot car, a mother recounts a mistake that might have cost her daughter's life.

I am a parent of 4 children ranging in age from 2 to 13. I have 3 living children and one angel babyRead More that passed at 3 months. Having lost a child I know the pain that comes with that loss. Susan...I have sympathy for these children but not for the parents. I have never forgotten my children whether I have 3 of them with me or just one of them with me. The reason so many parents are upset about this is because you don't forget something that is the most important thing in your life. I can't tell you how many times my kids have fallen asleep in the car....not once have I ever forgotten that they were there. I agree that several people have children that do not deserve them. It makes me angry that people like you can sympathize with parents who make what you call is a mistake... A mistake is putting red laundry in with white laundry. Leaving your child in a car is not a mistake...it is simply put negligence and child abuse. Making excuses for why people make these so called mistakes is sickening. Do you "forget" to change your baby because they are asleep? Do you "forget" to feed your child because they are in their room playing when you are fixing supper? And your argument about kids "mistakingly" drowning in a bath tub is even more troubling. What responsible adult would ever leave a child in the bathtub by themselves? The answer is not one. These children do not ask to be born. It is the responsibility of the parent to make sure of their children's safety. We live in a time when people are too absorbed by what celebrity is doing this or that or what so and so posted on Facebook or twitter. People are getting lazy because everything is automatic. We have cars with back up cameras so you don't run over a child that isn't being watched....cars that can park themselves because people don't want to learn to parallel park ( because it's too hard(sarcasm))...cars that tell you you forgot your keys dumbass...headlights that go on and off on their own because people can't remember to turn them on in the rain or dark and turn them off when they park. We have become used to having to be reminded of what our responsibilities are by everyone else. People have hectic lives because they make it that way. It still isn't an excuse to forget the only thing in your life that depends completely on you for it's survival.

Could not agree more!
RDJ July 12, 2014 at 02:23 am
Just another thought....what does the profession of a person have to do with their ability to beRead More responsible? Susan says it happens all the time to responsible parents that are by some article listed as police officers, doctors and social workers. Last time I checked there are irresponsible people in all kinds of professions. Prime example...Our president. Where you work has no weight on how well you parent or how responsible you are as a parent. In my opinion you are reaching for anything to make your point seem valid. I do not agree that we should make someone else responsible for reminding us that we have a child in the car. The car manufacturer didn't have the child but they are supposed to make you remember that you did? How is that logical? They provide you with the tools to safely transport your child just like the car seat manufacturer makes a seat that is safe for your child to be put in the car. They can't provide common sense. It is the parents job to make sure the car seat is correctly installed and the child is in the seat strapped in correctly. They don't have to remind you to put the child in the seat so why do they need to remind you to get them out? What next? A toilet seat that reminds you to wipe your butt? I am glad that this little girl didn't lose her life by her mom's negligence but the fact that the mother is using her abuse as a way to make money is sickening. If you are serious about making a difference then look into parenting classes or educating children on doing more things for themselves instead of relying on technology for everything and maybe they will grow up to be responsible parents that don't need a reminder to get their kid out of the car. Sometimes I think that as we progress in the technology field the farther behind it puts human intelligence and common sense. Obviously technology has taken the place of the things that used to teach people the value of hard work and responsibility. I wish things were back to being simplified....There would be a lot less suffering all around.

The educrats have never abandoned their battle cry,"It's for the kids!"The purposes ofRead More this initiative are to encourage parental involvement and recognizing student achievements." Certainly the purpose is NOT free food for teachers. Community clean - ups teach the students to respect the environment, that they are a small part of a much greater whole, and they learn that the average person uses an astonishing 300 plastic bags a year! We pay taxes for the D.P.W., but that's not the point. Auto body students learn auto body skills. That the teachers get free labor and free use of a facility that is funded in part by private auto body shops is hardly worth mentioning. The Breakfast Club teaches the students food preparation, ordering supplies , billing, etc. The fact that teachers get a modestly priced breakfast delivered every morning by students who make $5.00 a week, is neither here nor there. It's all "For the kids.The educrats should stop being babies. They should say," NOTHING is primarily for the kids.THEY are at best, an afterthought. We are out for all we can get, and taxpayers and kids be damned."

Do you have the classic physical symptoms of withdrawal, or is it merely a psychological problem?

Addiction kind of makes sense... Alcohal is a form of sugar and that is addictive...

The thing I find interesting is women are dead set against people that smoke but the major majorityRead More of them drink regularly. I suppose they justify it because booze won't give them lung cancer. So who cares about liver cancer, hardening of the arteries, heart disease, kidney failure, abdominal and bowel cancer and a permanent lose of thousands of brain cells with each drink. I have yet to see one report of a driver under the influence of nicotine killing anyone while driving. So heres lookin at ya drink up and put that cigarette out before ya kill somebody with second hand smoke and just use a car.

Driving under influence of alcohol or drugs stats DO NOT include accidents caused by an impairedRead More driver who did something stupid, caused an accident, but wasn't in the accident. Cutting someone off, weaving in high-speed traffic, crossing center line, stopping short, running stop signs/street lights, etc. can cause an accident without offending party being in the accident. These drivers are oblivious and merrily drive on their way.
