Gotta love what our young people do without being able to get a job. With the new minimum wage in effect, selling drugs will be the only way that some will be able to get money. And now with so many of them wearing red "gangwear," they will have some awesome new friends with similar interests to hang with. Gangstah's Paradise -- the new American dream!

And yet given recent court filings, many law abiding Peabody residents are arbitrarily denied the most efficient means of protecting themselves.

Bandaid bandit is absolutely right, though he also left out the part that it is also our Constitutional Right. Hopefully whomever becomes the new chief will support the Rights of Peabody's law abiding citizens.

While that'd be great, won't help much when the chief's immediate superior is a member of MAIG, every town, or whatever they change the name to once their false "statistics" wear thin.

Sadly you're right. :(
