    I dislike Brady and Bellichek and their fans intensely but their organization has earned my respect

    Damn, I am glad I was able to trade him in my dynasty league yesterday. I traded him and Greg Jennings for Dennis Pitta and Rueben Randle

    For doing something pretty much every team in the league would have done at this juncture?

    We're not talking about some DUI charge or a fight in a bar here. The guy is being investigated for murder. I think even the Lions and Bengals would have cut him.

    I never would have thought that. Thugs are possible anywhere I guess. From that beautiful crib to 3 squares and a cot, what a fall.

    But...but...I thought Massachussets had strong gun control laws? Surely they should have prevented this heinous crime. /roflcopter.

    State gun laws are pointless when someone can just go to another state and buy a gun. Same goes for city bans like in Chicago where the city has bans in place, but the suburbs around the city don't. So those in the city who want guns, can simply drive 2 miles out of the city and buy a gun with little to no background check

    I like this because anything that weakens a Bolts' opponent is a good thing.

    Only live about 10 minutes from his home and its been chaos here. That judge is a douche though, I did jury duty last year in that same court with that same judge.

    He's being held in a town near me as well, know some of Correctional Officers there. But, its funny throughout this whole process he's had that swagger and cocky look to him. Hasn't changed one bit, which tells me he feels like his lawyers are gonna have a field day with this. He's represented REAL well.

    However, there is something not right here. They still have no murder weapon, and have yet to release the names of the other 2 men involved. Right now its all circumstantial evidence, once this hits Superior Court he'll get bail for sure.

    Surprised the Patriots didn't stand by him like the Ravens did with Ray Lewis.

    what? everyone has to get a background check to purchase a firearm, and the bgc is the same nationwide. I'm just stunned that someone killed someone else with a firearm in spite of the controls in the People's Democratic Republic of Massachussets. They clearly don't have enough police.

    Yes, let's get him signed up for just a couple million before anyone gets any ideas about him. He could be a valuable asset to our offense, and he promises that Security can check his duffel bag with those metal detecting wands before every practice... I doubt that he would be a cancer in the locker room, and the guys can hear him throughout the facility when he clangs those leg irons.

    Pointy :cool:

    And you are clearly just trolling looking for an argument. Glad that you think gun violence is so hilarious. Way to look on the bright side. I mean, if this guy had not been shot to death you would have missed a chance to share your nuanced, learned opinion on this serious issue. That would have been tragic.

    A single gun death is not proof of anything but your ignorance of statistics. Almost every comprehensive study done on the subject has found a very high correlation between lax state and local gun control laws and high levels of gun violence. States with stricter gun control laws had lower levels of gun violence. In a study released earlier this year Massachusetts ranked 49th in gun violence. Only Hawaii was lower.

    Yeah, the extensive background cheks that take all of 5 mins to complete,

    Either way, the point still stands. Gun bans are pointless when someone can simply drive to another state or city with different laws and purchase one there. The laws don't limit gun sales to only those who live within the city or state limits where they are legal.

    How do you think 99% of the AR-15 end up in California? People go to Arizona, then those law abiding Americans break the law and illegally transport them across state lines

    This 'study' was done by a liberal think tank, Center For American Progress.. Leading donors include George Soros..

    Perhaps you should look at the latest CDC study that paints a far different picture..

    You have a link to the CDC study that you are referring to? I can't find it, not even on the CDC's site, and I'd like to read it

    Thats like saying DUI laws don't work and shouldn't exist because people still drink and drive. Completely asinine stance

    Wrong. It's like saying that prohibition isn't a solution for drunk driving.

    Link for the CDC study?

    Are you referring to Priorities for Research to Reduce the Threat of Firearm-Related Violence? I figure you must be, since Congress has prohibited the CDC from studying gun violence since 1996. The "study" you are talking about is not so much a study as it is a report that summarizes the problem of gun violence and offers suggestions about what sorts of research should be conducted. It also has little if nothing to say about any correlation between rates of gun violence and local and state gun control laws.

    As for the study from the Center for American Progress, I understand your trepidation. I would have preferred to link to a non-partisan study of gun violence in the US, but given the restrictions on publicly-funded gun violence research imposed by Congress, I'm not sure any recent non-partisan studies exist. The study I linked to used publicly available data from the FBI, ATF and other governmental agencies. Certainly, how they chose to analyze the data could be biased. But if you think there is a flaw in their methodology, please point to it. Receiving funding from George Soros is not a flaw in methodology.

    My overarching point remains. Ikeman offered a single gun death as proof that gun control regulations do not work. Such anecdotal evidence does not prove anything of the sort. The study I linked to may be flawed, but I'm certain they used a more scientifically rigorous approach than Ikeman did when he focused on a single point of data or you did when you dismissed a study without reading it.
