Boston do not need shotguns or rifles.
 
Looks like more of the same for the Democrat Controlled East Coast. Now they are going after Long Gun Possession.

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.

“Our position is really very, very simple,” said Wayne Sampson, executive director of the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association. “We, as an association, believe that it’s unconscionable that if we determine a person is unsuitable to carry a handgun, that they can then turn around and apply for a Firearms Identification Card, which allows them, by law, to purchase rifles and shotguns. And there’s no way we can impose any restrictions on that. It just doesn’t make sense.”

Does it surprise you coming from the People's Democratic Socialist Republik of Massachusetts????:mad:

Another reason I'm glad I live in "The gunshine state" (Fl). But this is not surprising coming from them. All they want is more government control-control-control. But people up there for some crazy reason keep voting these people into positions of authority.... They're not gunna stop until you need a permit to take a sh*t.

Sorry man, but this is coming form your brethren Law Enforcement officials, not just the politicians. It appears that the LEO in MA feel they should have more power than the Constitution.

Do the LEO in MA not take the same Oath you have taken and supported all these years?

MA is a very strange place. All the big city police chiefs are anti-gunners. Some, mostly rural, police departments issue permits for "all lawful purposes"; that includes concealed carry. In Boston it's almost impossible for an ordinary citizen to get a handgun carry permit for self defense. Those are reserved for the politically connected, the rich and famous.

Anti-gun police chiefs in MA deny handgun permits based on political PC. Then they want to deny the right to own long guns too.

Ah yes, the Oath.....:cool:

Said it before. My empathy for our Northeast brothers goes only so far. They've been electing and re-electing progressives at all levels of government for decades. Now that tree is bearing fruit.

i am so glad that an association such as theirs, feels they have the right to determine what people should or shouldn't own as far as firearms goes.:rolleyes:

wow, just wow. :rolleyes:

These are politically appointed police chiefs, (not the street officers) that are beholden to lib-tard politicians. I doubt if over one out of ten have ever even driven a police car.

I'll betcha a secret ballot poll of patrolmen, sergeants and even lieutenants would disagree with these chiefs by 3 to 1.

...and it boils down to this.

The Police Chiefs are "beholden to lib-tard politicians."

The Police officer is "Beholden to the Police Chief"

So, in all reality the Patrolman, Sergeants and Even Lieutenants are "beholden to lib-tard politicians".

Lest of course they follow their Oath and get their ass fired.
