BOSTON --Boston Mayor Tom Menino plans to propose legislation that would toughen the state's gun laws by suspending the driver's licenses and revoking the vehicle registrations of people convicted of firearms violations.
How is THIS going to stop crime ?

Well, at least it'll help keep them in the hellhole city of Boston and out of MY backyard. :) NH state troopers, if they catch you without a license, just throw you in the back and take the car.

Note "convicted", though. In MA, only people who goofed and forgot a mag in their car get convicted. The gangbangers always get out on technicalities...they're the victims, you see. :barf:

Oh, yeah, and watch violent crimes on the T (subway) go up, likely, as a result.

Manedwolf how did you become so cynical? :D

Manedwolf seems rather realistic to me. Keep up the good work Maned, your comments and analysis are always entertaining and quite to the point.


Okay, maybe I'm cynical too.....:neener:

Man I am so glad I live on the Western seaboard.

Why, thank you. :D

And cynical? Especially where MA is concerned, next to where I live, NH... It's like living in a house of good, decent people, but your next-door neighbor is a moonbat who dances around their garden with a tinfoil hat...and has so much trash that it sometimes spills over into YOUR property.

Manedwolf is not cynical he is realistic, take that from a 25 year refuge from MA.

Thinking MA is some how realistic is absurd

His lunatic proposal has nothing to do with stopping crime. It's purely punitive.

Menino is known to be a moonbat by just about every SANE person in New England anyways. As was said, it's not about stopping or preventing crime, it's about punishment.

Now, I'm all for locking people up for things like assault w/ a deadly weapon, attempted murder, stuff like that. Punish the act, not the tools. But shouldn't the punishment fit the crime??? "You have a gun in the trunk, so we're going to take your license so you can't get to work." ***???:confused:

These are the same moonbats that have enacted laws that would lock me up for driving through MA with PEPPER SPRAY for crying out loud. MA politicians are out of control. The REAL worrying part is that the floodgates have opened and all the people who can't take it in MA (taxes, demographics, etc) are flooding into NH, and MAKING THE SAME CHOICES IN THE VOTING BOOTH!!! A freaking sales and income tax are being tossed about as actual options within the Democratic party in NH now! That hasn't even been on the TABLE since I think the 70's!!! We have a governor who VETOED our self-defense bill which would have basically been a NH version of "Stand Your Ground" and would have made one immune to civil or criminal prosecution if they were involved in a legitimate self defense situation.

I've thought of running for Vermont once I'm finished with school, but those idiots keep sending Bernie "Socialist" Sanders to Washington, so I KNOW it's just a matter of time before they tighten up that gun loophole. Alaska seems about the only place worth running for now.

Yes, I just love that bit. The ma**holes came up and voted the same way that destroyed their state. Like someone escaping a burning house, then, in their new refuge, playing with gasoline and matches.

Yes - Mayor " mumbles " Menino is definately off his rocker . I would like to ask him this question - If he got his wish that he could take away all the guns from law abiding citizens , would he be willing to take the guns from his own personal security people too ?

Manedwolf, you're on a role with quotable quotes. it is all too ironic that this is the historic birthplace of the american revolution. i guess that kind of makes sense though; revolutionary spirit certainly has a half-life, and the first to catch it would be the first to lose it. logic follows though, that some of the most fervant modern day revolutionaries should be coming from this area....right? rational thinkers must feel as though they are under siege there.

I'd just like someday to see someone get a fine for having a firearm without a license that was MORE than what I pay to have on legally.

I remember seeing a $25 dollar fine once when the license was $35.

are messing up southern Maine as well.

But their not "political" refugees.....their housing market refugees!

They can't swing $600,000 for a house in Reading, so they all flocked to the southern Maine towns like York and Eliot. Now they've driven up the price of the same size house from $250,000 to $400,000 +.

Hey that's fine...it's a free country (at least once they leave MA it is) and let the market play itself out (many are in shock now that the markets in the toilet and they no longer have any equity in that house.....after years of payments).

BUT.......

Then they moan and groan because small town USA doesn't have all the public amenities of the grand socialist utopia they left behind, and vote in the Dim Wits, pushing property taxes through the roof to pay the bill.

So were building school after school to accomodate.....only to have their liberal ilk take over the school boards and make the places unfit for any one who believes in such odd concepts as right and wrong.

the dems now own NH ...... don't think they'll be living free for much longer.

there is one thing that I do not get: crime is going through the roof in boston, but getting a SD weapon is so very inconvenient, that is almost impossible. This place is openly anti-gun, and the one suggestion that is always thrown around for controlling crime is to make it harder to buy a gun legally. how many of the crimes (percent) were done with a legally purchased weapon??????? :cuss: somebody please give me that statistic for boston.

As if criminals buy guns legally........

for a state that is suposed to be so liberal, why are they ultra resistant to the idea of self-defence???

It's funny-

I moved up here from MA a few years back.

I left my MA ideas at the border. The few times my parents came up, all they did was complain about everything. The funniest, is that my street has no yellow line on it. It bothers my Father greatly. He wasn't sure how we could drive on a street with no lines. I pointed out that in NH, we drive on the right side. Since everyone does that, lines are not needed.

Also, since my street is VERY, VERY, VERY curvey, no one has any room to pass anone else. He asked how people knew not to pass without the lines to tell them not to. I replied that unlike MA, people in NH have common sense.

Then he went to street lights. How can we drive one our street at night without streetlights. I told him that my car came with the headlight option.

I'm not making this up.

They complain about how bad the state is, but then want to bring the same junk up here?

Makes no sense, but I under stand why people hate MA-Holes.

I wish a could give a poll.
How many people would live in the city and make gobs of money but sacrifice a lot of your personal freedoms?
Or live in the country and make much less money but have all your personal freedoms assured?

This proposal must seem utterly senseless to those who have never heard Mayor "Mumbles" Menino speak. He is as dumb as a box of rocks.

I don't like Menino , Kennedy , Deval Patrick and there ilk , the high taxes , The stupid liberal PC attitudes , the rediculous gun laws and a few other things about MA.
But , for my own reasons , I live in MA . So because I live in MA. , does this make me a Ma**hole ? :fire:

No. Those are people who embrace the politics and culture of the state. A US soldier stationed in Afghanistan is not the same as a Taliban.
