The idea is that anyone who owns ten guns must have them in some sort of a safe and that safe wired to a central authority, so the police can be notified if there is a break in.
To be filed under "one size does not fit all" we have this comment from Rep Murphy:
Issues like this one have a more favorable atmosphere in the inner city. Rural areas will be more difficult.So why are we going for a blanket law to cover both "inner cities" and our rural areas?
And, when I think of "inner city" I think of some blighted area in some large city. I don't think of Lowell. This is not to say that we don't have our troubled neighborhoods. We do. I just don't think of it the same way I think of cities like New York or Chicago or Philadelphia or even Boston. When we were living in Northern Virginia my wife's boss was up in Boston for a convention and managed to get himself beaten up (including a broken ankle) near Faneuil Hall, back in about 1991. My wife was up for the convention also, running the wives tour. She was more careful about where she went and when.
City Councillor Bud Caulfield says in the article:
The safety of the people is what my concern is,If the safety of the People is Councillor Caulfield's concern, he should be encouraging gun ownership, not discouraging it.
