The Truth Shall Blow Your Mind

#1 Sep 27, 2008
Its time to focus on getting the GUNS off the streets of BOSTON. Time to go to the SOURCE of where they are coming from and its NOT the kids. Lets think beyond the scope for once. They have to be getting the guns from someone, somewhere. Get the bastards who are making the guns easy to obtain. The GUN DEALERS! If they are not available there would be no shootings!! Racists comments are just stupid too. Of course there are going to be a LARGE influx of them. Think beyond the scope of your skin color for once in your lives. ONCE!!

Unfortunately you are correct homer. Why bother when its only the black population at risk while the gun dealers continue to to profit off the death of black children. Who cares right? That is the norn thinking around here. They are only blacks so what. Sad way of thinking and a SIN that will not go unnoticed.

so you assume because my name is homer and i made a comment about the guns not going away you think i am black ok now we know were your comming from have a great night. by the way iam 5ft 8 and a white guy who lives in a small town. 90 percent white in fact. we still have our crimes hear in town. framingham mass for one black white thats not the problem the real problem is the ilegalls and the gang wars.

in the south side of framingham it started getting bad back in 82 i can imagine what its like today unless they cracked down early.

i was merly stating a fact why should we be suprised i did nto make it a black or white issue. in fact if you check recent crime reports more south american gangs are cought carring guns than blacks now and also for the record i have been in towns were black white and others have gotten along great no problems at all.

I drove a truck for years but i like to observe and grab a news papper from towns i i have ben in.

the worst town so far is springfield mass and providence ri they have declered themselfs sancuary cities and you can tell. don't leave your care unlucked in those places. Hell i feel safer in new york city and thats sad

What needs to be done Homer is going to the source! The gun dealers. Start there. If it was the white community having these kind of issues you bet your sweet ass they would be after the gun dealers. But considering its mainly minority let the gun dealers continue to make their money with the blood of black children on their hands. With the blood of latino blood on their hands and in their pockets.

you want to know decent gun controll? enforce the laws of not haveing a registered gun its that simple auto matic jail time enforced.

no plea deals. a strike thre law like californa has to cant hurt.

it willwork in small states you forget california is the size of our whole coast from main to newyork.

if every state had theas alws arround hear it will work.

second get rid of all ilegals garenty you crime will be cut in half. or at least large enough were you can feel safe.

turff war laws make them enforce them eveyone eles has speacial laws why not the turff gangs to.

if your caught in a turfff war crime the time is doubble no paroll.

the guns are not going to go away even if you go after the companies that make them you can make your own gun. zip guns were a hot iteam at one time.

oh and you can make a gun out of wood. the key is enforcement of the law no plea deal and deport those who do belong hear.after they do the time

The gun laws would only serve to incarcerate more minorities at a very high level. The jails would then be over crowded. You HAVE to go to the source! START there! Make a effort to hem up the illegal gun dealers. START with jail sentences FOR THEM!

sorry i dont't think so i used to fire a gun all the time i used to own one till i had children then i and i alone dicided to get rid of it.

a gun is a tool its the person who uses the gun that is the criminal or the killer.

a gun alone dose not kill a gun with bullits do. a gun with a fire pin kills. their are many parts of a gun. it wont work with out all of them.

I once shot a 357 magnum. very powerfull hand gun very dangerouse even to the experts.

if used and trained right guns are not the problem i beleave in our rights as us citzens. yes we don't ned ilegal gun dealers. we do need controll though. I don't want a nut ball having a gun and i have a nra card.

most of us in the nra dont want nut balls having a gun. sorry their are many miss givings about the nra.

and on a nother note i thought you were a guy untill you called me dear lol but then again you could be gay and hey thats ok to lol have a great day

I am not a guy nor am I gay. As far as the black community is concerned they need to go after the source. That being the ones who are selling these guns illegally to children in order for them to kill one another. Remove that option from them. Remove that source. Yes, I know its not the gun that kills people Homer. Any fool would know that, well maybe not. lol.

I can believe it. What gets to me is the lack of real, meaningfull action in the black community with the gun violence. Mumbles needs to do more. Instead of making a bunch of pointless speeches at a shooting site.

Well yes, them too. It is horrendous in california. The gangs are spreading all over the country. The mexican gangs are crossing the boarder to sell drugs and along with that comes violence. The sale of drugs is a very profitable business. Its unfortunate. This country has truly gone to hell. Those in government do not care about us. The people. I am truly fearful as to where we are heading in this country. 24 years of Bush's and Clinton putting things into place. Its so scarey and sad I don't even want to think about it. At least not now.

I like living where I live. What I miss about city life is nature. Trees, animals, water. We have it here but not in abundance. There is nothing like going on your back porch and watching natures animals go about their day. Quite beautiful. When I lived on the south shore there were tons of skunks. One of my neighbors use to sit on the ground and they would walk up to her and eat right out of her hand. They were spoiled skunks. lol.
