This is just the start of a new task force randomly breaking into homes and confiscating weapons from law abiding citizens. Friends at the Middleton Jail have commented on new training and the purchase of new hollow point ammunition. 453 million rounds by the Department of Homeland Security to be used against US citizens as part of new insurrectionist troops, trained against those citizens who choose to protest against US policy domestically and abroad. This you tube shows what will happen to you in upcoming years as constitutional freedoms are striped from US citizens. http://youtu.be/-taU9d26wT4

I have to concede, hearing about the local police engaged in a home invasion is quite disturbing. I thought the Constitution guaranteed our right to bear arms. As a woman during civil unrest, I would be powerless against gangs of hoodlums breaking into my home. The police are for the most part reactionary. During a Hurricane Katrina, Blizzard or famine. I would have no defense against criminals. Listen to Ron Paul as he speaks on this subject: http://youtu.be/XeCpLcjxOq4

Please read this more closely. There was NO POLICE HOME INVASION. The man in question lives on Burnham Road. The arrest was made on Friend Ct (the location of the police station.) We have the right to bear arms, but in MA you must have the appropriate license. We would not want people driving without proper training on the safe use of a car. The same is true with those that operate/own guns.

That's right Michelle, I'm with you ! We must first disarm the Hamilton Police. Obviously they have proven themselves irresponsible in the use of fire arms. They discharge weapons in public, shoot their own, shoot themselves. Hey Michelle, "They are licensed to carry" To top it off, the district attorney feels there is nothing to investigate nor is there anything to investigate about police having the use of deadly force when they themselves have not proven competency or common sense in the use of fire arms. There are thousands of citizens living within the Hamilton/Wenham community who have fire arms without FID's or permits. Under Chief Poole and the state of Massachusetts people could inherit target guns, shot guns and so one from family members, ww two veterans and not worry that the police would break in their door. Today, half of our population is non-compliant due to Nazi style gun laws in Massachusetts. Of course many wealthy people have moved their inherited guns, some collector and antique guns to New Hampshire. Automobiles kill more people as a percentage ratio, 99% to 1 %. Michelle, tell your story to Dr. Petit ! Dr. William Petit, sole survivor of a Connecticut home invasion that left his wife and two girls slaughtered in his flame-engulfed home, took the stand this morning in the murder trial of the first of the crime's two alleged attackers.
