Thomas Menino is the Mayor of Boston, he is also the Co Chair with Michael Bloomberg of “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” (Which has a large number of criminals in its ranks) he is also a very stupid man. (Go spend some time at that site, its a hoot!) He’s equally as bright with his “Solutions” to the violent crime problem in his city.
Boston Mayor Thomas Menino is calling for a ban on motorized dirt bikes in the city, partly in response to a shooting in a Dorchester playground that wounded a four-year-old boy.
Menino — who called the motorbikes loud and dangerous — said Tuesday night that the city will immediately begin enforcing a ban on the vehicles in city parks and will ask the Legislature for permission to prohibit them outright in Boston.
Initial reports said two men fled on motorbikes after firing shots Monday night at Harambee Park. Investigators now believe the shooter fled on foot, but police said the presence of motorbikes in the park created an even more chaotic situation.
The Dorchester neighborhood of Boston is totally in the grips of the gangs, and most of the murders go unsolved because witnesses refuse to come forward because they and their families will be killed by the gangs for “Snitching”.
So we have what are likely underage gang members with illegally acquired guns, in a state that requires a permit and training to own a gun, registers all guns, demands background checks on all sales, and has a “Safety Roster” that restricts the sale of many types of handguns.
And the solution is to ban mopeds.
Doesn’t that fill you with confidence?
Again the other side is the side of the feeble minded.
