Boston Globe Publishes Pro-2A News Article

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Well known as one of the bastions of liberal thought in New England, the Boston Globe has historically leaned to the left side of the political spectrum.

Publishing a pro-Second Amendment article seems really out of place and I started to read the article with a lot of skepticism figuring there was a huge amount of sarcasm embedded within.

Surprisingly, I had to look out the window for flying pigs after I finished this article.  It agrees with John Lott Jr.’s premise of More Guns Less Crime.

In his article “A safer society with gunsJeff Jacoby writes: “But the experience of Colorado State and DC should come as no surprise. By now there’s so much evidence that higher rates of gun ownership lead to lower rates of crime that it isn’t hard to fathom why fewer and fewer Americans want to ban handguns.”

Jeff points out that the University of Colorado has fought the state’s concealed-carry law and their crime has increased by 35% starting at 2004.

On the other hand, Colorado State University embraced and supported Colorado’s concealed-carry law.  They allowed students with a state-issued concealed-carry permit to carry firearms to class and on campus. Not surprisingly, the crime dropped 60% since 2004.

Jeff, I congratulate you for having the intestinal fortitude to point out the obvious that more guns means less crime.  If you happen to be out here in California’s Bay Area during the last Thursday of the month, stop by for a GS2AC meeting and we will buy you dinner. Just make sure you arrive by 6 pm, as the place fills up quickly after that.

    It’s things like this that give the Anti’s just that much more aoiinmtumn to shoot at us. Not trying to second guess the situation.. but that was nothing but pure stupidity to try carrying by just sticking the firearm in the waistband.BoilerMaker’s right.. this should (and would) NEVER have happened if a correct fitting holster had been used. That should be a lesson for all of us.FireStar M40

  2. Cool! That’s a clever way of looking at it!

  4. , had we faced these extreme political times in my youth, I would have been in real trouble because there’s no way I would have been able to keep my big mouth shut…no way…:)Marla

  5. Me dull. You smart. That’s just what I needed.

  6. I’m 14 years old and a huge little monster. I hate Madonna but after watching this it does seem Gaga was directly influenced by Madonna but this DOES NOT mean Gaga lacks originality. Try watching Gaga interviews + documentarys to get a real insight before you judge.

  7. I truly enjoy studying on this website, it has wonderful blog posts. “The living is a species of the dead and not a very attractive one.” by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche.

  9. Ducca disse:“… Dedicação e competência nunca faltaram aos aviadores da FAB.”É bom lembrar, para que não haja injustiças, que no 2º/6º GAv – Esquadrão Guardião, bem como em toda a FAB, se trabalha em equipe. A dedicação é dos oficiais aviadores, mas também dos oficiais, suboficiais, sargentos, cabos e soldados dos diversos quadros que estão, desde o momento do acionamento do acidente, empenhados dioturnamente no bom cumprimento da missão, sempre na esperança de achar alguém ainda com vida para ser resgatado.Então: Parabéns à Força Aérea Brasileira.

    You can certainly see your skills in the work you write.

    The world hopes for more passionate writers such as you who aren’t afraid to say how they believe.
    Always go after your heart.

    Cutting gluten out of your diet can help you slim
    down, but only should you follow a plan that permits you to include foods that substitute minerals and vitamins that one could
    be really missing out when following this diet plan. As mentioned
    before I was totally dedicated to supporting my wife and in so doing I discovered that I also required
    to lose 20 pounds. No kind of medical implants are widely-used and no stomach is removed inside the gastric imbrications, which still is able to slow up the stomach
    size, along with turn help the patient to limit food intake.
