    238 years ago today the citizens of Boston turned out to repel the British at Lexington. Today they are locked down in their homes in fear of a 19 year old student.

    I wonder if they feel safer today if they have a firearm in the house?

    I'm beginning to think that this Cambridge Affair is fiction. After all, my President tells me that if we had gun control everyone would be safer. I believe I am correct in saying that Massachusetts has very strict gun control laws. Therefore, this couldn't happen in Boston.

    "Massachusetts has very strict gun control laws. Therefore, this couldn't happen in Boston."

    Well following the laws you would be correct. As all of us legal gun owners now that the laws on the books do not affect those that choose to follow their own laws. You are witnessing the result of criminal not following the laws.

    Just another result of further gun restrictions which are not needed.

    No sweat. The genius mayor of Boston just told people that if someone comes to your door don't let him in. Absolutely brilliant idea.

    I was born in Boston. I remember being about 5 years old and walking to the store alone (jamaica plain section) I don't think you could do that today.

    LOL,

    VP Biden's advice is to "step out onto you deck and shoot both barrel in the air to scare him off!"

    I called Senator Schumer's office today for one of my weekly rants and to remind him that some of the Senators made the right decision on the gun control vote. His flunkie said Boston was another example of why we need gun control. What a sack of SHIT!!. Larry Evans
