Pay no attention to the ever-mounting number of dead bodies on the sidewalk, the mayor's gun buyback program was a "major success", damn it!

Four years to the day after her brother was shot to death, a South End woman was fatally gunned down on the same spot late Saturday as she knelt at the makeshift shrine to her slain sibling, friends and family said.


The shooting happened on a bloody weekend during which at least one other person was killed and at least four others were shot in unrelated cases.

Not to worry, folks, the gun buyback program was but one prong in Menino's "six-pronged crime strategy to aggressively address crime issues".

We've still got five prongs to go.
