Massachusetts police chiefs demand more power to disarm citizenry

The War On Guns - Sun, 07/27/2014 - 12:51
“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,” Boston Police Commissioner William Evans told Boston Public Radio (WGBH) in a July 23 interview. “For the most part, nobody in the city needs a shotgun. Nobody needs a rifle.” [More] Today's Gun Rights Examiner report notes giving monopoly of violence enforcers "flexibility" with rights allows them to be tied up in all kinds of unique and evil ways.

The Choice is Clear

The War On Guns - Fri, 07/25/2014 - 14:01
Sarah Palin Endorses Joe Carr for Senate Against Lamar Alexander [More]Good for her. She's right, you know.

As we've observed before, amnesty will create millions of new Democrats, and when that happens, "gun control" will not be checked at the polls or in court confirmations. It IS a critical component of that "single issue." Anyone who says otherwise is an apologist liar.  You'll note they didn't raise the same objections when NRA (quite properly) took on McCain/Feingold.

So look how Carr does against Alexander.

Per NRA, Carr even does better than Alexander on guns. (And note Lamar's GOA rating.)

So why haven't they endorsed him?  (And what's with this headline-without-a-story placeholder at the Greenville Sun?)

Trying not to rock the establishment boat? Listening to (gun-grabber-endorsingGrover and his cronies again?

The only logical explanation: the Vulcan chessmaster is trying for a Reid-Angle repeat.

Stop with the damn games. Do the right thing.

UPDATE: Perhaps I've been hasty.  Alexander is reestablishing his RKBA creds by making soothing noises for those of us with antique firearms containing ivory. Sorry, Mr. Carr.
