Patrick said Boston residents should stay home and "shelter in place."

Is his family "sheltering in place," or, IOW, cowering behind a locked door? Or are they protected by police armed with automatic weapons?
I know what I'd prefer.
But MA gun ownership has declined steadily for the last 10 years, because of a policy that allows town police chiefs to make it very difficult for citizens to own guns.
Over this same time period, the murder rate has risen dramatically.
Deval Patrick is a moonbat woos, and Obama protege.
I’m okay with the shelter in place but its not sustainable. In a few hours, people are going to be out and about. I give it until 4 p.m. today. If they don’t get the T going again, there could be some serious protests. And anyone who has ridden the T knows that it is full of young adults with back packs.
Deval says “stay in place” but Barack said train for next year’s Marathon. What should I do?
Call out the militia!
Betcha there are lots of Bostonians wishing they had guns.
And I wish they had guns also.
In Texas, it’d be open season.
All of Boston is basically a gun-free zone so there is basically nothing left to do but run away and hide.
“Patrick said Boston residents should stay home and “shelter in place.”
Hopefull with their weapons!!! :)
Run in place?
That settles it. I’m taking classes and applying for my CCW permit.
BTW, are these Chechen practitioners of the ROP?
that is folking ridiculous, I would tell them to take a long walk off a short pier, I am going on with my stuff. eff you po po and FBI and Homeland Suckurity, I will go out if I want to.
As I watch this scene in MA, I am appalled at the helter-skelter procedures I am seeing.
I watch official vehicles, all with their flashers on, dozens of them, scores of them.
Reminds me of the scenes in Blues Brothers, where the police cars clog the streets, all in a row, chasing a single fugitive vehicle. Or like the LAPD response in Die Hard.
Then I see cops everywhere with nothing to do, bristling with arms and armor, it’s a carnival-like atmosphere. It looks like they’re enjoying themselves in their rarely-worn get-up. Most of them can be seen on their cellphones, talking or texting. All so very festive.
Overkill. Over-react; just the type of “stir-the-ant’s-nest” reaction I would suspect gets muslims off when they see us do it.
It matches the 24-hour news cycle speculative coverage on TV.
If we learned anything from the Boston Bombing:
1) Every house should have at least one gun in it to protect yourselves from terrorists and or nuts on the loose.
Imagine yourself in Watertown knowing a kook is on the loose and you need to lock yourself in your house and you had NO protection?
The suspect is wounded and has a suicide bomb vest on. His brother was killed when he detonated his suicide vest while trying to take a police officer with him.
If it was up to the liberals the people would shelter in place holding a water balloon in one hand and a toilet plunger in the other.
There is a war going on in the streets of Cambridge and Boston and they are to stupid to call in the military. Both would be dead by now.
Legal question to the Freeper community.
How constitutional is a “shelter in place” or “remain in doors” or “evacuate” order?
Can one legally refuse such an order?
How does one know when such an order is ... an order. As opposed to say a recommendation?
Lets say you were sick and needed to go to the doctor or hospital. Or if you need to go care for a sick relative. What if you needed to pick up medication?
Or the inverse
Government tells you to evacuate, you decide to “bug in” because you have prepped?
No Amish Missionaries.
Okay Boston, grab your scissors and whistles, you are under assault.
Good day and good luck.
blue state epiphany?
I know what you mean. Has everyone forgotten to call in Jack Bauer? /s
And get your kitchen scissors ready!
I can understand the police wanting to keep traffic (both foot and vehicle) to a minimum so as to (hopefully) avoid citizen injuries if there is another shoot out, or if there are more explosives tossed by the remaining terrorist.
But people have lives they have to live - food to buy, kids to take to the doctor, jobs to get to. They won't stay locked in for long.
Should have sided with Russia against the Chechens.
People of Boston, Watertown, et.al,
NOW, as you huddle in your closets, hoping that the terrorist doesn’t choose your house in which to make his final stand, do you still believe that nobody needs a gun with a “high capacity” magazine?
Good luck. It’s all you have standing between you and harm at this point.
Any citizen with a gun & TV in the Watertown area are probably locked & loaded.
Door-to-door searches could turn up more than just the terrorist. Police have more to worry about than just one man. Criminals & illegals in the area must be terrified. Good.
Dzhokhkar has a BIG problem. He picture is everywhere. If you look anything like him, you have a problem, too.
The irony is that the chase has passed through the most liberal, moonbat, anti-gun, coexisting, diversity-celebrating, towns of Massachusetts, Cambridge, Allson/Brighton, Newton and Watertown.
Hide in the closet like good liberals while the bad guys who easily got all kinds of weapons despite all the gun laws go on a rampage killing at will. Gee don’t you feel safe in a gun free zone?
Yes. Self-identified Mohammedan on his own Facebook page. I don't know if it's suspect 1 or 2.
If they want you to stay in your house they should just say “stay in your house”.
Someone out there may not understand a hazy euphemism like “shelter in place” and the result will be somebody getting killed.
It's the attitude that bothers me. "We've disarmed you, but, we wish you the best. And don't forget to lock your doors!"
I need help with this one. How can you buy a firearm in another state without a valid drivers license in the state where the purchase occurs? Even at gun shows in another state of your residence you cannot buy a fire arm. Am I wrong on this one?
I'm hoping. I expect a lot of gun license applications in the next few days. Out-of-staters don't realize it, but individual police chiefs in MA have the authority to make it extremely difficult to get one. In many localities chiefs from surrounding towns have agreed to a no-licensing policy.
All unofficially, of course.
When Obama was elected my husband insisted I learn how to shoot a gun and get my concealed carry permit. I am VERY thankful he did!
But at moments like these, I miss my beautiful Rottweiler the most. She was SO protective that if one of these nuts came to the door and she sensed I was in danger, her first instinct would be to “kill first, ask questions later.”
My dog now is a noisy, adorable, useless terrier.
LOL, our Westie would handle them.
My wife said this morning it’s a good thing we’re protected and this town lock down is a huge boost to personal ownership of guns.
Baddog 219, you’ve nailed it. When do we:
1) Start deporting all of these creatures, just to be on the safe side, and
2) seal off our borders as humanly possible?
Will this blue state wake up? Sadly, don’t count on it. There are many thousands of kool-aid saturated, stone minded libs here that you just can’t reach.
My ways would be decidedly draconian and I would have a lot to answer for once I met my Maker, but what is the price to keep innocents safe?
I drove up the street by the house where Martin Richard lived last night. It looked like an empty, sad place. How many similar homes will result from our lack of resolve?
It is legal to buy a long gun in a state where one is not a legal resident, but it has to be transferred from a licensed dealer, at his licensed premises (can't remember if it allows for buying from a dealer at a gun show) with relevant NICS check and 4473 form done. The purchase and possession of the firearm must be legal both where purchased, and where the buyer resides, though I don't know if that is checked in any way.
It is not legal to buy a handgun in another state by any means.
Oh yes, and they are among the most enthusiastic practitioners of jihad.
Many have become mercenaries, fighting with the Taliban in AFG, with AQ in Irag, and training jihadists in Pakistan.
It is thought the Mumbai terrorists were trained by Chechen mercenaries.
Muslims of the Caucasus are among the most radicalized Muslims out there. They are capable of stuff that would make Hamas jihadis say “man, you crazy.”
That entire area has been a war zone for hundreds of years, back to the days of the Tsars and the Ottomans. The Chechen Wars in the ‘90s were full of atrocities on all sides. Chechen and Ingush Muslims brought us the Beslan school massacre, the Moscow theatre siege, female suicide bombers blowing Russian passenger aircraft out of the sky, and hostage sieges at a hospital in Buddyonovsk in 1995 and on a Russian airbase in 1996. The sheer ferocity of the fighting in the Caucasus especially over the past 20 years is stunning.
My condolences on the loss of your Rottie. Have you thought of replacing her with a Great Dane?
I wouldn’t necessarily mock the Shelter In Place concept. It is a fairly well-established protocol that I am familiar with as a Evacuation Team member.
You really want to leave your house with SWAT all around and risk getting killed? At a minimum, you'll end up on the ground and in handcuffs before they can sort out who you are.
You call the police emergency line, give them your address and tell them you have a medical emergency. They will get you meds, get you out (if they can, safely), etc. I have worked police dispatch during a situation with a guy barricaded in an apartment building .... black powder bombs, AK, etc. This is how it worked for those in the apartments who couldn't leave & who called for help - mom with sick kid, etc. .... dispatch relayed the situation to the command post & the police made sure they all got help.
I LOVE Great Danes! Unfortunately, we’ve moved to a condo where the association has decreed that “thou shalt not have a dog heavier than 40 lbs.”
We’re starting to look into buying a house with some acreage.
The Governor and other associated moonbats have us virtually disarmed here.
Understood and agree.
