    This is horrible, that cab driver should have peed himself and blew his whistle.

    A man with a facial tattoo is a criminal ?

    First time for everything, I guess.

    Good thing he was not driving for Uber, as it reacted to a driver stopping a mass shooting by banning its drivers from carrying.

    New Bedford is my old stomping ground. Grew up there and live next door in Fairhaven now. I expect the chief will yank his LTC and he'll be prosecuted for manslaughter.

    Dunton was found lying on the ground outside of the taxi. He was transported to St. Luke's Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
    +1

    The second suspect fled the scene as the driver began firing.

    Would've made no difference from a legal standpoint.


    Fun fact: I briefly drove for Uber a few years ago and I carried every single time. I hadn't discovered AIWB at that time so I was carrying in a shoulder holster [laugh]

    Technically true, but if the state decides they want to "get you" the fact that carry is prohibited by Uber will be mentioned at every step in the process in an attempt to prejudice the system against you. It would take a non-marsupial judge to rule the prohibition inadmissible at trial as irrelevant to the legality of the shooting.

    The may be the exception to the expectation in MA. The real test will be "does he get to keep his LTC and remain out of PP status?".

    I would be very surprised if the current Chief pulled the driver’s LTC.

    the same chief that issues licenses with hunting and Target restrictions? Would that be the same chief that has the average weight for a renewal at 90 days? Yeah he sounds like a real advocate for us.

    I’m not sure we’re talking about the same Chief. I didn’t state that he was an advocate for us nor did I mention anything about “weight” times. I did say that I would be surprised if the driver’s LTC got pulled by the current Chief. We will see.

    The new chief(or interim?) they've had has been giving out LTCs at a good rate, hasn't he?

    I have several friends who live in the city who said it takes close to 3 months and they were given restrictions. Maybe the cabbie was able to get al lawful because of his job. But the chief requires you write a letter if you want all lawful and if he doesn't like your reason (and usually he doesn't) then you get restrictions.

    "District Attorney Quinn said the cab driver, who has not been identified, is a legal gun owner. The man has not been charged in connection to the incident and is not being held by police."

    I dunno. Seems like a pretty clear case of self defense to me and he has not been charged.

    Awesome tattoo! If the dude goes by the name of AJ and is from LA, he gets two tats for the price of one. Mirror/selfie/drunk, yeah, I'm AJ. Other people, he must be from LA... [party]
