Life goes on in the crime-free People's Utopia of Boston. Stop me if you've heard this one before.Police arrest three teens in brutal home invasion
A pack of thieves burst into a Jamaica Plain apartment yesterday, throwing a pregnant woman to the floor, tying her up and threatening her life before making off with DVDs and assorted valuables.
"They told her to shut up or they were going to kill her and her baby," Cathy Martinez's boyfriend, Carlos Arias, said.
OK kids, for 20 bonus points, who can explain how Boston's "common-sense" gun control laws discriminate against pregnant women (or the elderly, or the poor, or the thousands of single working parents in the city, for that matter)
making it impossible for them to obtain a license to purchase a firearm for defense of home and family?
The 21-year-old woman was resting about 11:30 a.m. in the apartment Arias shares with his mother, Juana Tejada, when she answered a knock at the door. The thieves stormed the place and hit Martinez.
11:30 AM on a Tuesday, hardly peak hours for criminal activity. Who wouldn't answer the door? Wake up people. Despite the never-ending blather coming out the mayor's mouth, there are
people in this "safe city" of his who would end your life for ten bucks and a handful of DVD's.
The mayor knows this, yet he and our "progressive-minded" leaders insist that the most vulnerable of the state's residents (i.e. those who live where the crime is) live their lives at the mercy of these scumbags. They'll say "Just give the person what they want, and everything will be OK." or "Just don't go out at night".
Message to such minded shitheads out there: What if "what they want" is to beat you, rob you, and kill your baby at 11:30 in the fucking morning?
And why would anyone in a position of power in their community willingly create an environment that deprives the most law-abiding of its citizens of the right to life and liberty, while it actively bestows the right to the pursuit of happiness upon the most violent of criminals?
Oh yeah, I forgot. It's "for the children". Silly me.
Gun-Fearing Wussy follow-up question: But what would you have everyone do? Answer the door with a gun in their hand?
My answer: YES
In the dead-heat of a summer's night, two teenagers labored to dig a grave near an abandoned home in Vershire, Vermont. Robert Tulloch and James Parker had already targeted their victim, a homeowner who lived a few blocks away. They'd never even met the man. But his house sat in a prosperous-looking neighborhood on Goose Green Road, and the cars outside were new and expensive. They planned to rob and kill him, then bury him in the grave they'd prepared.
They'd rehearsed for days. Now was the time to put their plan into action. Tulloch planned to tell the homeowner that his car had broken down. He would ask to use the telephone and, once inside, would pull his knife and subdue the victim. When all was clear, Parker would enter the house and the two would force the man to give up his credit cards and PIN numbers. Then they would kill him. If there was a wife and children at home, so be it--they'd have to die, too. "No witnesses," Tulloch had said.
But when the intended victim answered the door, the master criminals were surprised. He was obviously suspicious and held a handgun in plain view.
Tulloch stammered out some lame excuse for interrupting the man, then quickly left. Parker exited the bushes, tucked his tail between his legs, and also fled.
Because the homeowner was armed, the Vershire murder didn't happen.
And because the homeowner lived in Vermont, he was able to purchase and carry his gun with just a valid photo ID and a quick background check at the point of purchase as required by federal law.
Sadly, the teens' next victims, Dartmouth professors Half and Suzanne Zantop wouldn't be so fortunate. They were brutally stabbed to death by the pair of deranged teenagers.
The Zantop's lived in New Hampshire, a state with (what I would consider) common-sense gun laws, at least in comparison to this lovely place we call Massachusetts. They chose
, however, not to arm themselves, and paid the price. It seems Mayor Menino and the assclown legislators of the Commonwealth don't want us "common folks" to have that choice.
This same body of "progressive" politicians will fight tooth and nail to defend Ms. Martinez's right to abort her pregnancy, but somehow believe they are more qualified to choose how she gets to protect the lives of her children once they are born.
They choose to have her scream "Please don't hurt me!" to an armed gang of assailants . Bad choice, just ask the Zantop's.
