The Ends never justify the means when it comes to killing people- no matter who they are. The United States is supposed to be the most civilized country relaying on the rule of international and domestic laws that capture and bring criminals to justice before a court of jury of citizens. The United States is supposed to put human rights above all. How convenient for our govt to kill whoever they want with cowardly drones- how disturbing that any American citizen in this country would accept such a babaric notion. Our country has fallen from grace- we are no better than the supposed "terrorists" the govt seems to label everyone and anyone even if they are just people (like our own civilian Minutemen - attempting to protect themselves and their families from an invading ruthless country. How sad so many little children are being killed at the hands of Americans. Creating more enemies with each senseless death that only destroys families and humanity.
From: Keep drone debate going

Ronald Winters: There is no Legitimate use of a semi-automatic weapon. And I have yet to read about anyone in this country protecting themselves from that boogyman intruder with a gun. If there are any out there, the percentage is so miniscule it doesnt even register on any collected govt data. The fact is- the more militarized our "weapons of false protection" get- the more dead innocent children and other victims. The more guns- the more deaths. PERIOD. The United States has the most guns per person than any other country in the entire world- yet we have the most death by guns. If guns protected people,- there would be no gun deaths given the millions upon millions of guns in America. The solution is to scale back ALL weapons of false protection- starting with our military on down.

Guns, guns, guns, how sad that our country has become so de-sensitized to gun violence that Americans are in complete denial about the fact that guns dont protect anyone- Guns are meant to only kill and seriously injure people. The presense of a gun causes what would be a typical drunken bar fight btwn to escalate to innocent people being killed, and a society that can no longer enjoy attending a social public event with the peace of mind of knowing you will return home alive and well.
That is what guns have done to America. Guns are taking away our freedom to have peace of mind in this country.

Please look to Cambridge, MA for excellent urban planning !! Visibly open parking lots do not add value to an area- a red brick wall surrounding parking lots is a great upscale idea if you can keep graffiti off it, but you want to keep residential parking out of site as possible- and behind retail areas- to give a better welcoming feel of a Town Center walking environment. Best of Luck Mr Maddalone !

Any person who is capable of owning a gun (aside from true hunters for food- not sport hunters) is a person who is capable of murder and truly has no regard for human life. Guns are made to kill, they are not made to "stop" people from harming you. Guns Kill people and more children and women who live in a home with a gun are 50% more likely to die or be seriously injured by that very same gun. There are so few documented cases of anyone ever seriously protecting themselves from that unknown intruder most gun owners claim they need to protect themselves from. People who own guns are cowards who live in fear, or active criminals- whether drug or mafia related or power and control freak men who are most likely physically and mentally abusive to women in their lives. That's it. There are a few exceptions reserved for the women who must live in fear from such abusive men in their lives.
Our societal problem with guns and violence begins and ends with men who have a sick attraction to violence and killing and lethal guns only feed that sickness.

Mr Erikson is wrong- the professionals he is referring to who prefer to live outside the city has less to do with the quality of available apartments, but more to do with the impression of crime and rif raf of people in certain areas and the exterior appearance of residential areas. The City needs to give 2-3 family residential properties a financial incentive and/or grant to improve their homes without risk of it triggering a tax increase. Give people money or a tax break to improve Windows, roofs, porches, steps, siding.

The problem IS GUNS. GUNS are lethal and anyone who has the capacity and desire to obtain a gun legally or illegally - has the immoral capacity and WILL to KILL. PERIOD. END OF STORY. GUNS KILL PEOPLE. Most people killed by guns come from their own home and the violence usually errupts from some form of domestic violence or an accident. Guns in the home are not protecting people from unknown intruders- people who live in a home where there is a gun are most at risk of being killed by their own gun or seriously injured by that gun. Need we count the 'accidents"?? Need we count the children who kill themselves or their own families with a gun from the home. If you have a gun - you are fooling yourself and society as to why you have it or need it. You are part of the problem, not the solution.
