This legislation is pretty scary. In Massachusetts you have to have either a License To Carry or a Firearms Identification Card to own a firearm.
The H.4121 legislation would make the issuance of both of those items totally discretionary. The police chief can deny your request and simply declare you "unsuitable" for any arbitrary reason.
If they can get this to pass, then plan on seeing the same approach attempted in other states.
How Massachusetts H.4121 Would Abolish The Second Amendment
” SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED “
This would be a clear violation of the Heller decision.
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is the well-armed lamb contesting the vote. Benjamin Franklin
“...This would be a clear violation of...”
They don’t care.
If they think they can remotely get away with it, they will try it.
If the citizenry doesn’t push back - hard - they will get away with it.
CCW permits in CA are discretionary, but you don’t need a license to own a gun. Long guns and handguns do require registration. All firearms must be sold thru a dealer. CA is looking at permits to buy ammo.
Let the Massachusetts legislature pass this law which will also be challenged all the way to the Supremes.
Have been invited by my sister to move to California. Told her the chances of my doing that we’re about the same as Hell freezing over.
Our founding fathers are rolling over in their graves.
They can issue as many laws and regulations as they want to. Doesn’t mean I will obey them. Welcome to the NWO where every citizen unit is turned into a criminal to be exploited for profit at the king’s request.
Whomever votes for this should be shot. This is what the second amendment is for.
strange. That video won’t play for me.
“Whomever votes for this should be shot. This is what the second amendment is for.”
Dead right! Liberals and the NRA think it is about “the sporting purposes of firearms”.
Constitutions Supremacy Clause and Bill of Rights trump state laws.
I don’t want to break it to you, but this has been the case for years.
The local police chief “May” issue. It varies town to town. In the cities, you face a tougher battle. My town generally does not issue conceal carry, but I can own handguns.
I don’t agree with the “May” issue part of it. But that’s the way it is.
mass does not care. There is no penalty for knowingly passing laws which can not stand and they know it. In their eyes all laws are 100% legal until a judge forces they to tweak it.
Hard to believe that the laws in MASS used to REQUIRE people to carry guns while on a journey and to church. But that was back in the day when you could be murdered real fast.
OH WAIT! The only difference is that back then the murderers would also scalp you!
The oft viewed video of the MA JBTs hauling out innocent people from their homes at gunpoint. AND NOTHING WAS DONE ABOUT IT.
In New Jersey carry permits are based upon your “proving a need” to carry. Unless you are “connected” the proof is never sufficient. What do they fail to comprehend about “shall not be infringed”?
That statue needs to be removed. And the USS Constitution needs to be moved further south to Virginia, Wilmington, Charleston or Savannah.
I consider them sport.
I met a woman who was living in California (long story, not relevant here). Early in our relationship I told her I couldn't move to CA, since half my guns were illegal there. She agreed to marry me and move to Ohio. My engagement present to her was a Ruger .357 revolver, and she's now an avid gunner with her own CCW.
,,,, the British once attempted to take away the arms of the American colonist ,,, Hitler succeeded in disarming his population ,, the rest is history . It’s up to all patriotic Americans to decide which way they prefer to live .
SCOTUS shot down (no pun intended) a very similar law just a couple of years ago.
The issuance of either Class A or Class B LTC is ALREADY totally discretionary.
It’s the FID card - which you need for a BB gun, or mace, as well as any (not banned) long gun - that is now “shall issue”, this law would put the FID card under the same regime as the LTC.
By the way, I have a non-resident Class A LTC and the people at the Firearms Records Bureau have been nothing but pleasant and helpful to deal with.
