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!).

How did the idiot stay in office since 1997?

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!

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

If Hillary wins, this guy will be head of the FBI if not Attorney General!

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.

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.

...he demanded that all sworn town police officers also obtain a state civilian license to carry firearms before he would allow them to carry weapons in the line of duty.

sorry, this is one policy i agree with. cops should not get special rights because they have a badge, they should have to abide by the same rules as everyone else. altho, i am of the opinion tht if you can own a gun, you should be allowed to carry it open or concealed, without having to jump thru a bunch of hoops.
