It is Slugfest tradition to try to purchase a hall shotgun each term to protect the residents from terrorists. Unfortunately, Massachusetts has some crazy law that doesn't allow the god-given right and duty to own as many firearms as humanly possible. However, one day the Slugs will finally get their shotgun. One day.
Due to the constrictions imposed by the newest Slugfest Government, the Hall Shotgun did not pass in the Fall 2008 Budget. It was a sad day for Fourth East. However will we be able to defend ourselves if we cannot even pass it into our budget!
Hopefully the few (but proud) minority will find a way to overthrow the government and return to the days of old, when we had the good sense to protect our families from the terrorists (and aliens, and zombies).
