A gift to the ghosts at Lexington Green, and Concord Bridge. God rest you.

Unfortunately, zealots such as this are always going to be with us. We must remain ever vigilant.

We have a number of boxes to use in the defense of liberty

The soap box
The ballot box
and lastly, the cartridge box.

This is what the Declaration of Independence is about.

Yet another little gun-grabbing mussolini, ala RINO-judy ruliani.

Just say NO to any and all such arrogant, elitist, UN-AMERICAN, anti-freedom jack-booted thugs, be they vying for law enforcement positions, or...

running for President of the United States (FU RUDY 2008!).

You're right about them always being there. I have often thought that they have the advantage in almost every battle. Liberals sit around their home, smoking dope all day dreaming about taking everybody's guns away or figuring a new way to get the government involved in their lives while conservatives are out working to support themselves and half a dozen libs on welfare. The libs keep trying to socially engineer all aspects of our lives and when we notice and beat them back-we think that we've won the battle-the libs start the same chit the next day.

We need to start electing representative that reverse this system and continually introduce legislation requiring gun ownership or other other new "laws" that give libs the vapors.

Time they spent their time worrying about what we're doing.

Word comes that Cusolito, upon learning that he was being replaced, chose to resign. A new Chief of Police is expected to be in place by September of this year.

Government "from the consent of the governed." In this case it was from the denial of the governed.

Ya-sir!

Massachusetts is filled with brain dead liberals. I wonder if his successor will be an improvement as police chief.

Usually the police chief simply parrots what the mayor believes.

When I read the headline, I said to myself, “Self, no way is this story from Massachusetts.” Sometimes I’m glad to wrong.

Massachusetts is a “may issue” state for handguns. The law is so gray that many police chiefs (who have the ultimate say under state law) will not issue a LTC for “all lawful purposes”. Come to Springfield MA sometime. The Springfield COP will not issue, but the next town over, Monson COP, will issue. Therefore, if you live in Monson, you can carry in Springfield or most of the state except Boston, while if you’re from Springfield, you are not legally allowed to carry concealed anywhere in the state.

And....just recently, the state legislature changed the LTC to restrict any firearm usage unless specifically noted, where as before, the license listed “reason to issue” on your LTC, which was gray enough under the law that you could carry because, after all, the license was for LTC, and didn’t specify what type of carry.

And....I read here on this forum that most states allow open carry, even MA, but I have never tried it. They probably would call it brandishing, which is illegal.
So......even though the MA state contitution allows the right to bare arms, and predates the Bill of Rights, you would be lucky not to be arrested for some type or firearm offense if you carried concealed or open, whether handgun or longgun.

P.S. I have also heard that under the new license, as I stated above, if I shot someone, even in my home (and of course in fear for my life only), they could arrest me because my LTC did not specifically state I could use it for self defense.

We are pushing for a law here in Texas that if for any reason you are FIRED from a department you lose your certification and your ability to reclaim it in the state of Texas. It would be nice if there was a conus wide effort to make sure these folks who get fired don’t show up with the same agenda, grudge, mindset at a different department .

Too many smaller department etc etc get these POS losers and IMO criminally insane SOB’s in leadership positions or higher due their big city , big department experiences and time as a LEO etc .......

This and other polidiots or their appointees like him need to be banned from making decisions for any other person other than themselves.........Pure crap for such as this idiot to try and do to law abiding folks.......

Good riddance to an an*l retentive control freak with a Napoleon complex who should never have been hired in the first place. Unfortunately, there are countless more just like him throughout the Commonwealth - and around the nation.
