Disarmed Victim Zones

Image hosting by PhotobucketNazi items in home of alleged gay bar attacker - Crime & Punishment - Now most everyone in MA is disarmed by state law, but if you are allowed to carry a concealed weapon, you are still disarmed in a bar.

A suspected Nazi used this fact to attack a gay bar in New Bedford.
The young man flashed an apparently fake ID, the bartender said, and calmly ordered a drink, asking if he was at a gay bar. Told that he was, he attacked the patrons with a hatchet and handgun, sending three men to the hospital early Thursday, one with critical injuries.
The "no guns" rule did not stop this attack. One patron with a gun could have ended this rampage before it got started. An armed bartender would have had a similar result. But the powers-that-be know what is best for us.
