Funny thing is, we in Boston didn't spend the night cowering in our homes. And no one I know is running out to buy a weapon. We are stronger than that.

And let me tell Nate Bell where he can stick his assault weapons...

@maxdancona,
As a former Bostonian (lived there most of my life) and one who has often been accused of having a 'liberal' mindset, I can't even imagine cowering behind locked doors in a situation where one -- ok, two -- nut is running around causing havoc. In Boston, I usually had a gun or two in my abode but, again, I can't imagine why that would make any difference in my daily routine and MO.

Nate Bell is one dumb blow-hard.

Let me get this straight, Nate mentions the AR-15 with a standard 30
round magazine and then some dumb ass calls it an 'assault weapon'.

Maxipad, you are a weak idiot.

... I'm sure Nate sticks his AR-15 in his safe as most Americans do.

@H2O MAN,
There is no insanity greater than electing a pathological narcissist as president .

You helped elect Reagan, Bush and Bush, H20man.

@cicerone imposter,
What bothers me is the implication that all people who own no firearms are probably cowardly. Is that how Nutso sees it in his home state of Arkansas?

I'm not sure I follow your logic.

If this guy had broken into your home and had started massacring everyone, you'd have been a lot better off with an effective weapon than with a strong willpower.

@oralloy,
Catching at least one of them alivce would probably not been an option with a "well armed militia of douche bags".
Knowing Boston, there would have been a lot of beer involved and shotguns and many neighbors woulda been shot by the douche bags.
Amwericas a great country but not too bright. We dont often wait for facts before acting.
It seems the cops got the job done in about 4 days and itll only cost a few billion in lost commerce and overtime for the force.

Theres no "Better way" in a situation like this. Its a bad situation all around and adding more guns in the mix would have escalated the body count even more. Im amazed that, with the bombs and police action, only four people died but of course many were wounded. Was all the lock down needed? Probably in order to make a case to go "balls to the wall" for all cases of terrorism, but having an additional army of drunken gun wielding idiots woulda turned Boston into a version of "BLAZING SADDLES" or "DJANGO"

I was reading how McTag thought a British Bobbie coulda delt with this better. RIGGHT'

"Here now, lets have none of that"

It would be impolite to mention NORAID, wouldn't it? How, in Boston after the IRA bombing in Warrington on Feb 23rd 1993, there was cheering in the bars & over 1 million dollars raised for the IRA after two young British boys were killed: three-year-old Johnathan Ball and 12-year-old Tim Parr.

I have owned three or four guns in my lifetime, but haven't any now. I am not one to take away small arms and hunting guns. I just want airtight background checks, small ammo clips and outlawing assault weapons. The reason I don't own a gun, it seemed more dangerous, not less, having one. It seemed necessary to take it out and confront situations on occasion, though I never actually shot at anybody. Not having a gun, these occasions have not once presented themselves to me and I actually feel safer.

@contrex,
i don't remember that particular incident, but I know that money was
raised for NORAID in parts of Boston, money that went to support
terrorism. Boston has had more than its share of shameful incidents and
that was certainly one of them.

It is something we need to be reminded of.
