Skip to comments.Boston mayor blasts NRA reaction to Conn. killings

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino is criticizing the National Rifle Association's call for armed police and security volunteers to be posted at schools.
He said the group's proposal "is not a plan, but a ploy to bring more guns into our neighborhoods."
Menino reacted in a statement Friday after the NRA commented on last week's shooting at a Connecticut elementary school that killed 26 children and staff. The nation's largest gun-rights lobby blamed video games, movies and music videos, saying they expose children to a violent culture day in and day out.
The mayor said Americans are tired of the same buzzwords and rhetoric that have moved the gun control debate nowhere.
Menino and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg lead a coalition of mayors pushing to end gun violence.
I was just saying over on another board that there are Democrats who will waste no time arguing that our children do not need protected, and along comes this would-be mafia capo ~ Boston Mayor Thomas Menino ~ and he’s telling us the kids got quite enough guns ~ too many for his interests.
Mumbles is an ass.
the same buzzwords and rhetoric that have moved the gun control debate nowhere.
If you don’t have a coherent argument that is what you
Just admit that you prefer dead children to a rational attempt to protect them, a$$hole.
Okay, then if that’s how he feels, he should resign.
Did he take an oath to uphold the laws of his state and our nation? The Second Amendment is law.
If he can’t honor it, he should step down.
Article CVI. Article I of Part the First of the Constitution is hereby annulled and the following is adopted:-
All people are born free and equal and have certain natural, essential and unalienable rights; among which may be reckoned the right of enjoying and defending their lives and liberties; that of acquiring, possessing and protecting property; in fine, that of seeking and obtaining their safety and happiness. Equality under the law shall not be denied or abridged because of sex, race, color, creed or national origin.
How can you defend your property and life without a weapon?
This guy should step down immediately, or be impeached.
Wait a second Mumbles, I thought you were worried about threats to schools. The only possible solution is gun control? Rather narrow minded I would say.
Because they have no intent of accepting anything less than gun control, period.
Better to take it up with the individual states and schools and let them decide if they want their kids to be prey animals.
No use trying to understand his “reasoning.” Liberalism is a mental disorder, so he is incapable of thinking clearly like normal people.
Are your bodyguards armed?
Are those armed cops I see guarding the City Hall?
Are those armed State Police I see guarding the State House?
Are those armed security guards at the big Banks in the Banking District?
Wassamatta? Your precious public schools, and all that money you spend “for the CHILDREN”, you mean to tell me that the CHILDREN and your precious public school system are not worthy of the same protection you afford for yourself, the City Hall, and the State House?
Typical filthy lying hypocrite DemonRAT.
Where were these people during Fast and Furious.
Over three hundred killed and still counting.
This is the same guy who wanted to ban a chicken joint because he does not agree with the owner.
In other news, Boston Mayor is first US Mayor to receive a lobotomy and still retain office.
“is not a plan, but a ploy to bring more guns into our neighborhoods.”
The man is a nut.
OK lets look at facts, the lefts worst enemy.
Guns have been around for hundreds of years.
nutjobs have been around but not like this
society went down around the 60/s just as the left was attacking the traditional family , and morals\\no coincidence.
their words not mine
The left promoted their attack on the family , told women do not need a guy etc.
video games, movies changed in the last 15 years, John Wayne getting shot or indians fell of their horse but not guts, today it;s all guts and gore and sex especially homo feces pushing sex.
Shrinks telling kids it is alright to be different, discipline out of the window, talk to kids today don;t shout or punish crap.
blubber mouth and others need to look at facts instead of their usual mouthing off like an idiot.
Oh wait it;s the left which promoted the attack on how kids were raised, society changed due to what , guns , hell no, because of the left and because of many on our side which shuts the hell up.
Its often been observed that perception is more important than reality. The observation is often correct. It is never MORE CORRECT than for those weve come to call liberals. I prefer statist but liberal has morphed from its classic meaning to the other end of the spectrum so Ill stay with it.
Since these folks operate almost entirely on EMOTION and FEELING, REALITY seldom allows FACTS to intrude upon the delusional worldview they have constructed and the comfort that provides them. It is that illogical, irrational and delusional mindset that prompts many of them to continue to quest after a Utopian society. The thought that such a society can and will never be achieved in a fallen world populated with failed sinners never penetrates whatever remains of their cognitive consciousness. Its a DANGEROUS WORLD and, as the liberals continue to define deviancy down, it becomes more dangerous daily.
There is another, far more sinister, level of the liberal call for gun control.
It was Mencken who offered that The urge to save humanity is most often a false front for the URGE TO RULE. He clearly had been a student of the liberal politicians of his day. Were he alive today and able to observe the likes of Chuck Schumer, Diane Feinstein, Obama and the rest, hed almost certainly have used far stronger language to frame his sage observation.
To conclude, dozens of studies reveal the FACTS concerning gun control. Those FACTS are that where firearms are widely and READILY available to law-abiding citizens, CRIME GOES DOWN! The liberals who willfully ignore the FACTUAL EVIDENCE and continue to call for gun control (i.e. the DISARMING of DECENT CITIZENS, thereby denying them the ability to exercise their God-given right to self-defense) are those about whom Mencken wrote: Their goal is NOT about preserving life. It is about the hell-bent pursuit of the impossible to achieve Utopian world where all are equal but some (thatd be THEM) are MORE equal than others (thatd be US).
There are many PRO-RTKABA videos on You Tube that your often busy lives dont allow you to find on your own. Search there for Gun Control, watch them and, more importantly SHARE THEM with the folks in your orbit.
Were in a fight. And losing will ultimately cost us much more than our right to our guns.
