(N.Morgan) The 2nd Amendment is our one protection against tyranny and oppression. Our Fore Fathers understood the importance of being able to freely own and use firearms. Now, the Boston Police Commissioner has stated the citizens have no need for rifles or shotguns in the city. Our fundamental right to own firearms are now being infringed upon by gun grabbing police. The one way to quickly subdue a society, is to take their guns. Look how well it has worked in Chicago so far. I find it incredible that the police and other authorities seemed to be under the naive belief that if they outlaw guns, that criminals will respect said laws. Boston’s top cop made that statement Wednesday on Boston Public Radio in response to Massachusetts state senator Stan Rosenberg’s position that there are already “sufficient controls” on long guns at the federal level, giving no need for new state laws that grant police additional powers to deny ownership to citizens.
Boston Police Commissioner William Evans stated,” Having long guns–rifles and shotguns–especially here in the city of Boston. I think we should have, as the local authority, some say in the matter. [And] the federal [government] doesn’t really allow us to have the discretion that we want in these particular cases. For the most part, nobody in the city needs a shotgun. Nobody needs a rifle.
