in Pittsfield. What a shock. Just as "shocking" and unbelieveable as when I read that there has been another drug bust or "major" drug bust in beautiful Pittsfield. Is there a drug connection, because that would only add to the shock that there has been another shooting in Pittsfield. How many to-date does this shooting bring the total to in beautiful Pittsfield?

No jobs, excellent social-engineering programs and adults who have learned their whole life that the 'goverment' will provide for them and the we wonder why crap like this happens.

No more.

A gun is nothing more than a tool. Much like a screwdriver or a hammer. The person who has control of this tool is the only one who can use it. I moved here from a very liberal gun state where you only got denied a concealed permit if you had a felony or domestic violence conviction. If you were a law abiding and responsible citizen, you could carry concealed. You know what? There was not as much crime involving guns. You know why? Because the punk criminals didn't know who has the capability of defending themselves. The ridiculous restrictions Pittsfield has and the comical "training/safety" class is useless. Unfortunately the police are purely reactive (responding to crimes already committed.) they are understaffed and it's tough to be proactive when you are constantly trying to just keep up. The way to bring violent crime down is to have a thorough and effective training requirement which involves handling and actually firing the weapon. This class should also cover the legal repercussions of self defense for civilians (police are different.). Every weapon should be registered. Then and only then should an honest law abiding citizen be able to have a weapon at anytime. When the law is broken, have harsh/stiff penalties with the violator losing the privilege to carry. I can guarantee violent crime would go down. Honest citizens would take back this city and the police will be able to lock the remaining criminals up. Remember, guns don't kill people, people kill people.

Seems like the "victim" was a drug dealer. Waste of public resources responding to this case.
