If they are found to be gang members sumarly execute them.
"Murfreesboro recorded 413 shots fired calls last year, many believed committed by gang members."
For all of those people who are against legal carry in parks and restaurants that serve alcohol, re-read that statement again. The argument used by many readers and by the city council members was "There is no need for people to carry their guns in the parks. Our parks are safe." More than 1 shot fired per day in Murfreesboro. That is not safe. Get a carry permit, carry, and do not let yourself become a victim to these thugs which have taken over this city.
redbird, you sir, are a moron!
The claim of 400-500 gang members is a gross underestimation of the problem. Instead of a symposium, perhaps better enforcement? Less time on revenue generating schemes like traffic cameras and more time on the issue of crime that is a genuine and far more serious threat to the community?
Where have you been?....There's been a gang problem here for over ten years.
Suggestion: The program, SAY NO TO DRUGS, has had some success. Start a program, SAY NO TO GANGS. Start in the elementary school. These 7 and 8 year olds have brothers in gangs, and they want to grow up and be "cool" just like them. Start young and maybe in ten years, you might have a made somewhat of an impact.
If you live in Murfreesboro, THERE ARE GANGS HERE.
Now, you can't say, "I didn't know"....
WE ALL KNOW ,,I`M A GRANDMOTHER AND I KNOW. LOOK AROUND AND READ THE NEWS,,ITS EVERYWHERE, THE PARKS ARE FULL OF THEM, YOU WOULD HAVE TO BE STUPID NOT TO NOTICE THEM,OR BLIND . YES WE HAD ALL BETTER GET A PERMIT TO CARRY AND BE ARMED AND SAFE FROM THE GANGS,,AND BE PREPARED TO SHOOT, IF WE DON`T KNOW HOW,`LEARN'
