    As you might imagine, she is a very intelligent, well spoken young lady. What surprised me a little was how very calm and collected she was. I would go so far as to say she seems like a delightful young lady.

    Huge shout out to @Cape Gun Works for stepping up to the plate to demonstrate that not all from Mass are Ma**h***s. Very nicely done Cape Gun Works. You are a credit to us all.

    Thinking about it, Howie was gushing a little bit. She brought out the goofball in him. I don't know what she is attending Grad school at Harvard for, but she is very sharp. I was also very pleased to hear that several Firearms attorneys have offered to represent her pro bono, should the need arise.
    I think these libtards messed with the wrong lady.

    She removed her linked in page, but it looked like she was a law student.

    I don't think I have seen a picture of her. Obligatory NES query... Is she hot?

    Interesting fact about her, she was born and raised in Turkey. I was also impressed that during discussion with her criminal room mates, in an effort to calm their fears and help them understand how firearms work, she offered to take them shooting, to demonstrate she knew what she was doing, and told them they did not have to participate at all if they were uncomfortable.
    This was after she was presented a list of conditions to stay that included keeping all ammo in a locked container in the basement, and removing the firing pins from her guns.

    Very not guilty! (That's probably why Howie was gushing)

    Wow. Smart and beautiful. She has a very bright future ahead of her. When she said she was born and raised in Turkey, that is not at all what I expected her to look like.

    Spot on. She sounded like a very nice woman. Sounds pretty too. Great interview.

    Edit. Brains and the voice didn’t lie.

    (Did she say "basement", or did only Howie or Steve claim that?)

    There are 6 roommates besides her.
    Paging Jacob Riis...

    And she's the only student -
    the rest work for a living
    (for some value of "work").

    I give her a lot of credit for keeping her cool.

    I know myself well enough that, had it been me at that age, it would have rapidly turned into:

    I do not recall. But it was not disputed. She did say one of her room mates claimed she was nervous because she " shared a wall with the guns, and what if one just went off?" At which point she told the group that they obviously do not understand the mechanics of how a firearm works, and invited them to the range.

    That is one very sharp young lady! Well spoken with a clear thought process.

    Damn!

    This kind of comment does nothing to advance the meaningful discussion of the issue and serves only to reinforce negative stereotypes of gun owners.

    We can only hope she's a law student.

    My daughter goes to college in Cambridge (not Harvard). Just knowing the demographics of the city and the school I can just imagine the ass-hattery Miss Pirnie will have to put up with from her Harvard professors, fellow students and just about everyone else that lives in that city now that they know she's a gun owner.

    I would love to be able to jump into a time machine & step out of it 30 years in the future to discover that Leyla Pirnie is the SCOTUS Chief Justice!

    6k/month gets a nice apartment, but I mean clean/spacious/modern "nice", not gold plated faucets and built in fleshlight appliances "nice". Yes, 6k is not remotely unheard of.

    A lot of these places are not apartments you basically rent a room and if your lucky you don’t have to share a bathroom. My dad lived in a place like that. One room with bathroom and a small counter for a hot plate and microwave. Down stairs was a Full LARGE kitchen for general use. Not a bad place BUT every room was locked . You could not just go into the other rooms

    And just like that, there is no more news coverage of this.

    Sounds like you have a "tenancy at will", which means they (or you) have the ability to provide the other party with thirty day notice to vacate the premises, with no reason necessary to be given.

    Unless the landlord is a school in which case they can kick someone out instantly if the school (not the courts) determine the person is a danger. I do not know if this is enshrined in law, or if it is just the courts ignoring tenants rights when it comes to students.

    The few people that aren't family, aren't NES'ers and know I have guns are simply told, "I'm not permitted to discuss that." (which is true - I don't permit it!) What they make of that statement, I can only guess.

    I like this method. Do you mind if I adopt it?

    I think they know, something. But definitely not much of anything.
    TargetSports does a great job of being inconspicuous, but that ORM-D sticker is a must.
    They haven’t asked, and I’m not going to tell. I don’t think they’d mind, but given the area I’m in, I’ve gone as far as buying a nondescript rifle bag. Just a rectangular bag with no badging. It might as well be art supplies.

    I’m not worried about what other people think. I’m just trying to remain “the grey man”. Even if people were more comfortable with firearms in this area, I’d keep it under wraps. No need to draw attention to yourself for any reason really, especially firearms in good ‘Ol Massachusetts.
