A recent news article quotes a Mass. legislator as blaming NH for the illegial guns in Mass. towns. The Concord Chief of Police stated that the laws would be changed by gun lobbies stop these changes. How about blaming the criminals for the gun violence. Wanna bet that when an arrest is made for the illegial use or possession of a firearm in that state, the lawyers come out of the woodwork to find a way to invalidate the arrest on some vague grounds.

Once again, let's blame the honest firearm's owners for the actions of criminals. Do these idiots really think that the criminal element will worry about violating a gun law when they are holding up that 7-11??? [mrgreen]
 
I think the legislator you are referring to is Boston's Mayor Thomas "I'm totally incompetent" Menino. He has and will always blame his city’s problems on someone other than himself.

''The proximity of New England states with less restrictive [gun laws] makes firearms more accessible to people here in Massachusetts," said Sergeant Thomas Sexton, a Boston Police Department spokesman. He said illegal guns are still coming from other states.

Once again Illegal means you and I law abiding citizen get it in the rear. Because of course it's all of us who are breaking the law. [roll]
 
Blame Who??

That is the one......I guess he is one of those" I can't control them, so let's blame someone else".

Maybe he should blame the car dealers up north for his accident rate in downtown Boston. [roll]

That will be next. I'm sure that will be Reilly's excuse for the 20%+ higher car insurance rates we pay in this state. [roll]

Cars are bad enough, but those UAV's have got to go!! What in the world sould any reasonable person need one of those for!

(UAV=Urban Asault Vehicle=SUV if you are a good MA lib.)

matt, dear, I drive an SUV, and if you DARE call me a good MA lib, I'll drop you quicker than you can blink....and I won't need a gun to do it. Now, be a good boy and tell Mother Mod you're sorry.

[wink]

I'm dreading the possibility of Tom Rielly getting the Govenors office.....That my friends is a potential nightmare!

Especially since he's a D and so's the majority of the legicritters.

I keep hoping that the majority of people in this state continue on with the "let's not allow the D's to have ALL the power." which is why we've had an R (well more like RINO) Gov's for the past number of terms.
 
Exactly. Look at the damage he's done as Attorney General. Imagine what he'd do as Govenor with the help of a D heavy legislature.



Edited to correct my horrible spelling....

Lynne: Be assured that was said with tounge firmly implanted in my cheek. I commute 50miles each way in a Dodge2500 crew cab. I'll sell it right after I put a Rielly for Gov. sign in my front yard (i.e. over my dead body!)

Good MA lib refered to those who actually DO consider our vehicles AUV's.
 
Plain and simple, because of its own problems, Boston has again become a dangerous place to live, work and visit. Until the City learns how to take care of its growing crime problem, GOAL would urge its members and their families to avoid visiting the City, especially for any Christmas shopping. Instead, perhaps our members will consider spending some time in the civil rights friendly states to the north.

Here, here!!
 
Mass. blames NH.......

for gun problems? I may be able to purchase a handgun with a driver's license and carry it openly by law. I may be able to get a Pistol/Revolver license with no picture and no fingerprint required for 10 bucks for four years and carry concealed. All these things mean I enjoy simple freedoms that everyone should enjoy. At last check, any person buying a firearm has a background check performed, as required by federal law. How does that make Mass. criminal problem the fault of New Hampshire?
The problem with Mass. liberals like Reilly is they believe that guns kill, and if you have one you're a criminal, not a law-abiding citizen that wants personal protection for yourself and your family. My advise, move to New Hampshire where the government doesn't mess with your life. It's only 30 minutes from Boston. Maybe Mass. will break off and just float away. [wink]

Actually, it's just Boston we need to get rid of... and Bacon Hill along with it. We just have to figure out how to preserve the useful parts of it first... like the Freedom Trail (and Grand Lodge, for us Masonic types!).
 
Well now...this will most certainly help.... [roll]

12/04/2005 10:08:20 EST Boston Store Ceases Sale of 'Snitch' Shirt

BOSTON - A clothing store owner agreed Saturday to stop selling "Stop Snitching" T-shirts amid concerns the message was intimidating murder witnesses during a surge in violent crime. Store owner Antonio Ennis, after meeting with Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and outraged community leaders, said he would stop selling the shirts in his store and over the Internet.

"It's the right thing to do," Ennis said.

Antonio Ansaldi Clothing has stocked the shirts since 1999 and sold 300 to 400 a month, he said.

Boston has had 66 homicides so far this year, matching a 10-year high, and police haven't identified a suspect in 70 percent of them. Police say many witnesses fear retaliation, and Menino said the "Stop Snitching" shirts are part of the problem.

At a meeting Thursday, the mayor said he would send city employees into shops to seize the shirts.

Lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts asked Menino to abandon that plan.

That "is a form of official censorship which is fundamentally inconsistent with the constitutional guarantees of freedom of expression," John Reinstein, legal director for the ACLU of Massachusetts, said in a statement.

...I hate when I agree with the ACLU. It makes me feel dirty...

I've got no problem with this so far, except for the idea that the shirts are somehow a real cause of crime in Boston. If the mayor want's to use the bully pulpit to pursuade him to go along with the (stipid and pointless) idea, then go ahead. It's that much less time Mumbles has to come up with more gun grab schemes.

Yep, I'd be scared to death one of those shirts would get me. I haven't a clue where the vital organs are located on a T-shirt, so I'd be relegated to spray and pray.

OK, then they can either (1) pay full retail price for the shirts like good customers or (2) be treated exactly like any other street punk thieves. In the first case, any sensible retailer would simply order more, since he'd be guaranteed that, no matter how high he set the price and how many he ordered, Mumbles would buy every one. :) In the second case, he'd have the satisfaction of pressing criminal charges against the employees, and Federal RICO charges against Mumbles. :) :) :)

No, it would be a violation of the 4th Amendment protection against search and seizure and the 5th Amendment protection against taking. The ACLU really need to get a copy of the actual Constitution and Bill of Rights sometime.
