Does Menino Know About This?

Because, it's only a matter of time before Maine's lax gargoyle laws start to take their toll on the good people of Boston.

ELLSWORTH, Maine --A retired mathematics professor who was found dead in her Mount Desert Island home in January was beaten to death with a ceramic gargoyle after a dispute over money, according to court documents.

As of the writing of this post, there is no age limit, licensing, or criminal background check required for the purchase and possession of ceramic gargoyles. It should also be noted that these high-tech ceramic weapons can be easily passed through airport security metal detectors.

All I'm asking for here is some "common sense" gargoyle safety laws. Because - let's face the facts, folks - no one needs a ceramic gargoyle.
