  1. Supreme Court - NYSRPA v. Bruen - Megathread

    Oh FFS. That's complete BS and you know it. MA voters, on average, are left of center. End of story.
  2. Supreme Court - NYSRPA v. Bruen - Megathread

    I disagree. https://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/transcripts/gore_text092302.html Even if he did, he wouldn't have created Gitmo (you argue whether that would have been a good thing or a bad thing). No, I'm not saying I would have preferred Gore over W. I am saying that Gore's...
  3. Supreme Court - NYSRPA v. Bruen - Megathread

    MA Presidential election results: 1988: MA went for Dukakis (D) 1992: MA went for Clinton (D) 1996: MA went for Clinton (D) 2000: MA went for Gore (D) 2004: MA went for Kerry (D) 2008: MA went for Obama (D) 2012: MA went for Obama (D) 2016: MA went for Clinton (D) 2020: MA went for Biden (D)...
  4. Supreme Court - NYSRPA v. Bruen - Megathread

    Once again, and now I'm shouting: HEALEY WOULD BE LOBBYING THE LEGISLATURE FOR MORE GUN CONTROL BILLS -- A MODERATE LIKE BAKER WOULDN'T. Baker (and other moderate Republicans) are more often closer to our views than Democrats. But conservatives are so intent on punishing heretics that they...
  5. Supreme Court - NYSRPA v. Bruen - Megathread

    That's because, as you know, the MA electorate is, on average, left of center.
  6. Supreme Court - NYSRPA v. Bruen - Megathread

    The difference is that Maura would actively lobby the legislature to pass an anti gun bill. Baker wouldn’t. You are making exactly the same mistake that progressives made during the Bush v Gore campaign in the 2000 presidential election. “There is no difference between Gore and Bush” they...
  7. Supreme Court - NYSRPA v. Bruen - Megathread

    Who would you rather have as governor? Baker? Or Maura Healey? The chance of a conservative getting elected governor in MA is zero. It simply won't happen. So your choice is a moderate like Baker or a liberal like Healey. ETA: or a whacko progressive like Sonia Chang-Diaz (who thankfully...
  8. Supreme Court - NYSRPA v. Bruen - Megathread

    I wouldn’t call it clever. I would call it recognizing the fundamental core of discretionary licensing — it has long been aimed at disarming the poor and minorities. Consider the following: a rich doctor who lives in Weston will get an unrestricted LTC easily (anyone who lives in Weston will...
  9. Massachusetts Mandatory One Year in Jail Law

    You don't get to tell people to shut up here.
  10. MA Gun Laws

    I think the father lives in ME, not MA.
  11. Massachusetts Mandatory One Year in Jail Law

    A prominent and well-respected defense attorney, who also spent 12 years as an assistant district attorney and thus has decades of direct experience on both sides, has just told you otherwise. What is your direct experience with criminal prosecutions of firearms charges in MA?
  12. 300+ yard ranges in Mass

    I was an officer or board member of a club for more than a dozen years and the same less than 10% of the club members did all the work for the club. As a result of that experience, I give the benefit of the doubt to club officers and board members. Lots of folks in the peanut gallery at clubs...
  13. 300+ yard ranges in Mass

    So you're just stirring the pot.
  14. 300+ yard ranges in Mass

    Neither you nor I were part of the committee that wrote the rules, so we don't have all the context. As you know, a single escaped round can result in a range being shut down permanently. This is a far greater risk in eastern MA than it is in some rural locales. You've shot on that range...
  15. 300+ yard ranges in Mass

    The rule book says qualified members only. You are no longer a member. As part of the leadership of a different club, I rewrote the range rules twice. It's very easy to criticize range rules, particularly when you don't have the context for the range rules. There were some range rules that...
