Are Boston's neighborhoods immune to gun possession laws? It seems that way. Who is trafficking these guns to these guys? Definitely connected to drug trafficking as well. Untouchable.

I was told those pink guns were for patriotic suburban women to protect themselves from MS-13 and Socialists?!?

How on earth did it get in the hands of these lowly street punks!?!?

Real guns made to look like plastic toy guns should be completely banned. Foh with that, there's no reason for a gun to look like anything but a deadly weapon. The manufacturer should be shut down and they definitely shouldn't be street legal in MA

Why Do I think someone like a lady PI that wears a garter belt would have that pink gun. (a la "Silk Stalkings")
