Oh wait, it's Massacusetts they probably don't have concealed carry. This whole fiasco is why we should have armed citizens. Take care of your family but if you do go out then be packing and if some asshole tries to jack your car then you blow them away or at least die trying. Its better than hiding in your house being owned by fear. I know the chowda's are tough in many ways but why they would agree to shut down their city entirely was embarrassing and makes the US look pathetic to future would be terrorists.
I guess I just dont get the mindset of the urban East Coast citizen and a population who listens to clueless politicians who are simply guessing if it's safe to go outside or not. Hell, the Mayor let everyone out and then twenty minutes later the shots ring out. Duval Patrick has no idea what he was saying or doing. The citizens, not the cops found this kid.
Yeah, everyone should have just grabbed their gun and white hat and went about their day.
