Lawsuit reveals that the New York SAFE act empowers state police to confiscate ALL guns

The state of New York responded to the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting incident by passing new gun control legislation in 2013 called the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) act, with the goal ostensibly to improve public safety and prevent mass shootings. The SAFE act is the signature piece of legislation for Governor Andrew Cuomo, much like the Affordable Care Act is for the Obama administration. As with Obamacare, the SAFE act is widely unpopular and has resulted in numerous lawsuits being filed and calls for repeal.

New York man cleared of murder after nearly 25 years in prison

A New York City man who spent nearly 25 years in prison for murder was exonerated Tuesday when a judge found that he had been in Florida on vacation at the time of the crime.

Jonathan Fleming, 51, walked out of Brooklyn Supreme Court a free man after the Kings County District Attorney's Office dropped all charges against him "in the interest of justice."

"He's extremely happy this day finally came but frustrated that he suffered for 25 years for a crime he didn't commit," defense lawyer Taylor Koss said.

Fleming had always maintained his innocence in the 1989 shooting death of his friend Darryl Rush in Brooklyn.

By Jeanne Sahadi @CNNMoney March 31, 2014: 7:27 AM ET

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) - When it comes to taxes, Rand Paul wants them simple and flat.

The blunt-spoken, Libertarian-leaning senator from Kentucky, who won the 2016 presidential straw poll among leading conservatives, favors a flat tax: a one-rate income tax system with a minimum of tax breaks for individuals and businesses.

But Paul hasn't settled on what that rate should be.
