Boston is moving to fire the anti-crime advocate who prosecutors say was handling an illegal high-capacity firearm moments before his girlfriend was shot in the head.
City street worker Jeremy Harrison, 28, pleaded not guilty yesterday to charges of possessing a large-capacity firearm, a firearm with a defaced serial number, a firearm without a federal identification card, and ammunition without a federal identification card, and improper storage of a firearm in the presence of a minor.
People will be in possession of guns regardless of the law. Period. No regulation will change that. This situation proves that. No additional law will keep guns out of the hands of people like Jeremy Harrison.
The only logical option to eliminate gun crime is to, somehow, eliminate all the guns. That will require the repeal of the 2nd Amendment and the confiscation of every gun in America. If that is the approach gun control advocates want to take, they should say so. No law that simply prohibits possession of firearms will ever prevent the Jeremy Harrisons of the world from possessing guns. Only confiscation and elimination will prevent it. Any gun control advocate calling for less than this is simply ignoring reality. They should have the courage of their convictions and advocate the only viable “solution”: repeal, confiscation, elimination.
