I guess the Karen’s of Newton have been talking to the Karen’s of Wellesley...


The proposed amendment is to add a new section 16.I that no new building or structure shall be constructed or used, in whole or in part, and no building or structure, or part thereof, shall be altered, enlarged, reconstructed or used, and no land shall be used, in any part of the Town: “For the manufacture, sale, or lease of any Weapon, Machine Gun, Ammunition, Bump Stock, Large Capacity Feeding Device, Stun Gun, or Trigger Crank, or by any person engaged in the business of a Gunsmith inany zoning district. Each capitalized term shall have the definition set forth in G.L.c.140,§ 121.”The purpose of the hearing is to allow interested persons the opportunity to express their views and opinions on the proposed amendment.”

Any weapon, eh? Guess the most popular weapon - "Blunt Object" - is not going to be sold in swellesley anymore.

Now, let's head on to every shop in town and photograph every "blunt object" being offered for sales, with some FBI crime stats in hand.

Shut the whole town down.

Wellesley? I guess they'll just have to order their "Blunt Objects" from the Carol Wright Catalog.

Seriously though, trying to ban gunsmiths is like banning watch repair or engravers from working in town. As asinine as one can get. Are they going to exempt Wellesley PD's armorer? Going to raise a stink about the run down National Guard Armory on Route 9 next to the Barton Road housing project? Oh.. that stuff is different because government is doing it or it is stuck next to those icky poor people. Bunch of wealthy bigots.

Lol, I know what I'm going to burn some $$$ on if I win the Powerball!![pot]

Step one - is there a decent sized multi use zoned parcel in Swellesley?

Step two - buy parcel regardless of cost

Step three - attempt to put up gun shop (maybe a small thing of stores with a gun shop as key building)

Step threea - secretly meet with builder and engineers for plans for a housing project.

Step four - when they shit on your gun shop plan, throw your "Section 40B Affordable Housing" plan nuclear option grenade directly in their lap and watch a bunch of liberal shitheads basically completely shit their pants at the prospect of having "one of those" in their city.... [rofl]

If I won the mega millions, I would pick 4 towns in MA and build 20 to 30 units in each and rent them for $1 to some hard-core criminals, I would have a bus waiting right outside of the prison to pick them up.

Lol.

Growing up my neighbor sold his house (Large single family) in MA in an expensive area and they were going to turn it into a Halfway house (not for criminals but for mentally challenged adults, not sure of the correct name for it)
A "Karen" or her husband literally burned it down the once it was known what it was going to be
I do not think anyone was every caught for it.
Not "in my backyard" but they vote for it in someone else's

Wellesley hit their 10% 'affordable' housing requirement by rezoning the Wellesley office park for subsidized housing already. They can't be forced into 40Bs anymore. The town can approve friendly 40Bs, but developers no longer have the pimp hand of the state to slap them with over snob zoning.

Reading is the same way. The libs want a Social Justice Director in the Library. Essentially set up speakers for the woke folk in town. They love to speak how “progressive and empathetic” they are.

EXCEPT, when a upscale small rehab wanted to convert an old nursing home long defunct. “Oh nose, the children”. Then this old Victorian became available on one of the snob streets (Summer Ave) and a school for children who are emotionally handicapped bought it. Nope, no permits for you. Hypocrites

Ya. Beating them up on a sub 40B quota doesn’t have the same bite it once did. Even then you better have some deep pockets in some towns fighting them. Worse than Black Fly season speaking of... I saw my first 2021 mosquitos today.

I hear (from PDs) that Avalon apartments can be a lot worse than 40B developments. Lots of crime, drugs and all the cool things that snobs deserve in their back yards.

On a much larger scale, I think that’s exactly what’s happening across the country right now.

These types need to fall victims of their own proposals before they realize giving government more power is the wrong thing to do.
