County eyes closing bars earlier
The Erie County Legislature this fall will discuss rolling back the 4 a.m. closing time for bars, its chairwoman said Thursday, though a number of lawmakers and the county executive do not yet see it as the right reaction to last weekend's deadly shootings outside a downtown bar-restaurant. "From a legislative perspective I am not quite convinced ...

This is a typical government response to any problem.
The highest-priced government in the nation cannot do the job it was hired to do so their answer is for everyone to go home and hide. I'm sure that will stop the violence. If someone is caught shoplifting we can close all the malls. Take everyone's car away if someone is caught speeding.
Here is my answer: Do your job and eliminate the people doing the crimes or quit if you can't handle the job.

Not going to happen, the State and county like all that tax money they get from the alcohol sales.
And all the money they get from the D.W.I. arrests.
Have a good night

All across the U.S.A. most murders occur on weekends and are usually committed by males from their late teens to late twenties with a sharp decline in the number of killers as testesterone levels decrease in your average F'd up dude.
The fact of the matter is: You can close ALL bars in the COB 11:00 PM and the homicide rate will stay the same or increase;The emotionally/hormonally-charged atmosphere of a bar is just one of MANY places scumbag trash gangstas and other S can congregate, get into fights and shoot each other.
Bars closer earlier? Then they'll have the party at someone's house.
Its like sticking your finger in a dyke-Dike;You won't stop the murders by closing bars earlier, gun buybacks (hilariously stupid), community/church outreach programs and other such govt PR bullshi t INCLUDING increasing the drinking age (another pile or horse S).
You need to stop the flow of black market guns, illegal drugs and the violence which stems from it, keep the fathers at home with their kids, stress more education and better role models for inner city/urban youth & teens and
THEN you'll see a HUGE decline in the rate of violence across the board.
Only problem is:
1) The black market for firearms is too profitable
as is and it ain't going no where
2) The FAKE war on drugs is too profitable for the U.S. penal system and the drug kingpins.
3) Runaway black fathers ain't gonna suddenly find
their conscience and say, "Lawdy! I's best be gettin' home to mine's chidren! Dey need their Pappy!"
4) The U.S. education system is in the shit ter for ALL colors and its only going to get worse.
5) What new role models for black youth? Its only going to be the same S of rappers, actors, athletes and other blacks who constitute a tiny percent of successful blacks.
So closing bars is nothing but PR BS show to appease a dumb public, just like the increased police presence in downtown Buffalo
Breaking news: If someone's pissed off and dumb enough, they'll pull a gun on someone else and think about the consequences later.
Thank you for making us all feel safer and happier, Mayor Brown! Looking forward to you ineptly and blindly serving another three or four terms as mayor of Buffalo!

So I agree!! Close the bars at 2pm. You state a great arguement. Hope the Mayor reads this.!

Bars are just one of MANY places to where a large number of imbeciles can get drunk, angry, horny and stupid;Close the bars earlier and they'll just go somewhere else and shootings will occur in a residential area instead of a business district.
People aren't going to party it up anywhere they want ESPECIALLY in this heat?
Yes. Closing the bars earlier will stop the increasing violence dead in its tracks.
At one of Mayor Brown's press conferences, I would LOVE TO HEAR a reporter shout back at him after one of his bullshi t speaches:
"Are you kidding me, Brown?! THAT'S your "big plan" on fighting crime in Buffalo?! How stupid are you?! Stop lying to the public you retarded moron and do your job!!!"

But the best time for the three gay socialists here to pick up men are between 2 am and 4 am. What shall they do?
