Because of one person - one group, even - an entire city has been brought to a standstill. Its citizens - by and large disarmed by fiat - are left helpless as the police hunt for a killer. Families are told to stay inside; workers are told not to come to work; businesses are told not to open. It is so dangerous because of this person; yet people will be denied a license to carry a firearm in the state of Massachusetts today.
They won't explore how these two immigrant brothers acquired firearms - handguns, even - in one of the most restrictive states for gun ownership. Mumbles might claim that they came from out of state, but the fact remains that both state and federal laws (if they got the guns out of state) failed - so let's add more laws! We need universal background checks so ineligible people don't break more gun laws while they're breaking gun laws.
And excuse me, but the fact that Army helicopters are flying over my city is every reason in the world for me to own an AR-15 - and it's EXACTLY the reason for the Second Amendment.
That is all.
*Thanks to McThag for pointing out a salient point. The Blackhawk is not set up as an "attack" helicopter.
