Gun Thugs and Slugs Need To Do Time!

Judges should enforce the 1 Year Mandatory Jail Time.
THE BARTLEY-FOX LAW, ENACTED IN MASSACHUSETTS IN APRIL, 1975, WAS INTENDED TO REDUCE THE INCIDENCE OF GUN RELATED CRIMES AND ILLICIT CARRYING OF FIREARMS.

Police Officers work hard, risk their lives every day coming across illegally owned weapons, during traffic stops, conducting raids, during actual shooting scenes.

Then in Court, the person arrested walks away on probation, or does a shortened sentence.

Many move on somewhere else and continue the criminal activity. Maybe in your neighborhood next!

BE STRONG AND MARATH(ON): This year, we’re all mentally training for the Boston Marathon.

Team Brookline has 42 runners, 4 charitable causes…
and advice from its own mental health expert.

Everyone who ran in, attended, watched, supported the Marathon last year keenly felt the effects of the day and what followed. For many of us, those feelings will come flooding back this year on April 21. But runners training for this year’s Boston Marathon are deep into that experience already.

Auto Show in Boston this Week

It's here again. We shouldn't be surprised because it's mid January, but the New England Auto Show has shown up again at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. For locals who haven't been to the NY Auto Show or the one in Detroit, the one here is adequate. While you won't see a ton of prototypes on the show floor, you will get a chance to see a bunch of new models all together in one place.

Ray Flynn: "We must do more to help the poor..."

Former Boston Mayor Ray Flynn starts off 2014 with an editorial in today's Boston Herald about the need to help those who are less fortunate with less money available today. Flynn states:


Boston is not the city it should be. We must begin to turn our attention once again to building strong families and affordable neighborhoods. It’s not too late. We have a city with many caring and concerned citizens. The only thing that stands in our way of being a great city is our political will.
