  1. Johns Hopkins "ghost gun" public awareness survey

    Are you afraid of "ghost guns"? Do you think people should be? You can help Johns Hopkins University with their public awareness survey at this link. https://jhsph.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_aV7yHqKCfGtta1U That's pretty much the survey: - are you afraid of ghost guns? - then they...
  2. Unbelievably positive firearm licensing experience

    Not from MA of course. This morning I received my Utah license in the mail. It appeared someone had picked the wrong state in a drop-down menu as both my letter and license said MD instead of MA, or maybe they typed Ma and their system pulled up "Maryland". Crap. At 9:00 am Eastern time I...

  4. Falmouth - Democratic Town Committee To Take Up Gun Violence

    Heads-up for Falmouth folks - the description sounds like these people are too far gone to listen to any input from the other side, but if you're local and know any of these people (or just like to argue), there's gonna be a meeting. Democratic Town Committee To Take Up Gun Violence Nan...
  5. "Police said there were three rounds loaded in the revolver's chamber."

    I'm willing to bet that's not *exactly* what they said, unless Mr "I'm not built for jail" has some kind of extra-killy revolver my local gun store doesn't carry! From last week, before the tragedy this weekend in Weymouth: Man assaults officers, pulls gun during arrest tied to shooting...
  6. Worcester - LTC holder stops armed robber

    Resident carrying a firearm stops 20-year-old suspect from robbing woman at gunpoint, police say "A man who was legally carrying his own handgun intervened as a suspect was trying to rob a 29-year-old woman at gunpoint, getting into a fight with the man while waiting for police to arrive...
  7. T&G poll: Should MA enable judges to remove guns?

    Currently 61% yes, pass ERPO 39% no, on gun/mental health Not that they're trying to influence the results with the phrasing of their choices. T&G POLL: Should Massachusetts bill (see editorial) enable judges to remove guns?
  8. Boston Globe poll & pro/con re: Extreme Risk Protective Orders

    I was voter #3 in the poll, so far 2 in favor and me against. Nice "no" response by GOAL board member Courtney Martel (though I still find the use of the word "cruel" to be a little odd without a lot of clarification) Should courts in Massachusetts be allowed to order the seizure of guns from...
  9. Boston Herald "arming teachers" poll

    The poll seems designed to split the "yes" vote, with "yes" and "only if trained" options and only one "no" choice. "No" (58%) is beating even the combined totals of the other two at this point so vote early and often, like you were a community organizer.... The article is worth reading for...
  10. Restricted to target and hunting, man takes firearm to work and leaves it in the bathroom

    This poor guy is so screwed. The only good news in this article is that nobody panicked - not the person who found it, not the boss, not the cops. It's unfortunate that the boss couldn't just ask him for his LTC to confirm he could have it, and them whack him with disciplinary action at work...
  11. Western MA News: Legal gun ownership increases in MA

    http://www.westernmassnews.com/story/36892540/legal-gun-ownership-increases-in-massachusetts Not a terrible article - I did get a laugh from the comment at the end, apparently Crystal is advocating for mental health tests to drive a car or something - "It needs to be more like owning and...
  12. NU "study" sent to EOPSS - no 2A restriction in gun laws

    Is it the phase of the moon or something? So this piece of excrement popped up all over the place today, mostly on sites that don't allow comments. Just an FYI, the "study" was "submitted" to EOPSS according to the article. I'm sure it will turn up on other sites, they have to justify the...

  14. WCVB - More than 1 in 10 MA residents licensed to carry a firearm

    http://www.wcvb.com/article/mass-communities-with-the-most-residents-licensed-to-carry-guns-2017/12802600 i just read the text, I didn't watch the video. I don't know if their data tells us anything the people on this board wouldn't know - it's not that unusual, it's a little more common the...
  15. Boston launches site: "Owning a firearm in Boston"

  20. Mansfield Cowboy Action 10/8

    The Mansfield Marauders are hosting a six-stage Cowboy Action shoot on Saturday 10/8 at the Mansfield Fish and Game club.
