        I highly doubt those Hispanic gang members are “legal” to carry a gun. They obviously STOLE their guns from a law abiding, tax paying American citizen.

          Put some logic in your statement…..if every “gang member” stole their weapons from “from a law abiding, tax paying American citizen”, then why wouldn’t that said citizen use said gun on the gang member?…..You know that there are other ways of obtaining weapons other then going to a gun store and showing ID right? You have gun shows where you can buy so many and NOT show any ID and you have private sales where no ID is required then you have street sales where no questions are asked.

        The gun is not the problem, it is the person behind the gun putting the bullets in the gun, putting their finger on the trigger and firing the weapon. You put a gin on a table its not dangerous until someone picks it up. Stop blaming the guns and start putting the blame where it belongs in the hands on the morons.

    What i dont get is why is there racial prophiling? How do you know they were hispanics? Just because hispanics live there? How do you know its wasnt a bunch of white people that came to lawrence and decided to just shoot up the club or blacks or any color. You sound very dumb. And the guy with the first comment, your an idiot go reevaluate your life.

      Because the only “white” people that come to Lawrence stick to Broadway looking for drugs and hookers that’s why….lol

      I do not see that as racial profiling. I see it more as an educated guess based on your experiences and knowledge of the area. It It is OK to make statements if you have the experience education and knowledge to draw a conclusion

    I live in Lawrence, I’m white, also about 12 other family members live here as well. All white.. none of us care for said drugs, none of us are said hookers. Over 90% of Lawrence is Hispanic, therefore it probably was. BUT it doesn’t mean it was a Hispanic, DEFINITELY doesn’t mean it was a ”gang member” .. they do that on the DL not in a club

    just like one of the comments stated Gun don’t kill people, people kill people.
    Morrons with no gun education or care for safety of others than their own, 35 cases of bullets are probably two clips and half at most depending on the gun and the type of magazine they carrying and yes it is a shoot out but they didn’t say they found all casing in one spot meaning is eather multiple shooters “gang” maybe or only two guys having a argument after a few drinks I mean think about it why it was only two injure after so many bullets shots ?

    I’m sitting here wondering where the hell the cops are. Had this been back in like the 90’s, the cops would’ve been there in five seconds! 5-O used to have that shit on lockdown, and that’s when it was ‘Lawtown’ for real.

    My finger is my gun control. Massachusetts has completely ridiculous gun laws for the tax payers to be able to acquire a firearm to protect his family yet all the criminals are armed. It is completely retarded. Illinois has the most strict gun laws in the country yet they have the highest gun violence in the country also. No castle doctrine so if someone comes in my house I have the legal obligation to retreat and cannot meet force with force unless I’m completely corned. Idk if it’s more more ridiculous then unsafe but they neck to neck. That’s why I got the fu k out of Lawrence and come down here to Florida where my 2nd amendment rights aren’t stupidly taken from me……… here’s a thought for all u gun control fans/idiots….. every mass shooting has happened in a gun free zone or state…..want to know why???? Cuz they know no1 is going to shoot back. The Batman movie shooting ya remember that? He didn’t go to the closest theater to his house he went to the only one in his area that was a gun free zone and had a field day. Now I’ll tell u this much if I would’ve been there maybe he would’ve killed me but what you can bet for SURE is he would’ve had to duck cuz I would’ve been sending shots his way as well

    To Mr Braincelltumor, its pretty obvious that something happened to your brain. Try knowing what you are taking about before you flap your idiot gums. To legally buy a firearm in Massachusetts at a “gun show” you need to go through an FFL dealer, to do a private transfer, you need to undergo a state check and transfer with your license to another licensed person. Education helps, but might not help you.

    No for anything but the majority of the crimes in Lawrence are Hispanic. I am Hispanic and it’s so sad that men have to fight with guns. REAL men fight with their hands and don’t need weapons! But I bet if this was a stand your grounds like Florida I am pretty sure they would be less crimes! If I know someone is carrying what are the chances that they will just go shoot that person. People in Lawrence need to grow up and stop the killings! Most of the clubs in Lawrence should be closed down. I bet if the city of Lawrence went through the clubs like they do the Spanish stores doing fraud they would be able to close most of these clubs. Sad but true!!!
