DA Conley: Massachusetts has some very strong and sensible gun legislation, but the great majority of gun crimes here are committed with firearms from states with looser laws.
Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley was first elected DA in 2002. He was previously an assistant district attorney for the office and a Boston City Councilor. He answered some questions from Patch. Patch: You've done a lot of work on anti-bullying, did you ever think anti-bullying would be a focus of the DA's office? How was bullying treated when you were growing up? Conley: Children and teens should be able to learn and grow without fear of bullying, harassment, threats, or violence.

Friday, March 1
The numbers here show the federal employees in Massachusetts by county in 2012, according to the latest figures from Eye on Washington, a DC-based lobbying firm that tracks federal employment. It compiles the data from the Office of Personnel Management, Federal Employment Statistics and the Bureau of Labor Statistics. While much has been made written on how the current sequestration battle in Washington could affect the national economy, these numbers are meant to give readers a sense of the sequestration at the local level.
