Skip to comments.New Proposal Will Force Gun Owners to Store Assault Weapons At Government Authorized Storage Depots
Posted on 01/19/2013 5:29:49 PM PST by Jet Jaguar
Because you can never have too many laws, regulations and mandates, Massachusetts State Representative David Linsky has filed a new bill that would, among other things, force gun owners to undergo mental health background checks, acquire liability insurance, pay an additional 25% tax on all forms of ammunition, and require firearms categorized as assault weapons to be stored outside of their homes and only at government approved storage depots.
Provisions in the bill include:
Having one standard of the issuance of all gun licenses, giving local police chiefs the ability to evaluate all aspects of an application for a gun license.
Requires proof of liability insurance for possession of a firearm, rifle or shotgun.
Requires that all large capacity weapons and grandfathered assault weapons must be stored at gun clubs or target ranges.
Requires live shooting as part of the curriculum for a basic firearms safety course; this is not a current requirement.
Requires all applicants for gun licenses and FID cards to sign a waiver of mental health records for review to be destroyed after decision.
Imposes 25% sales tax on ammunition, firearms, shotguns, and rifles; dedicates funds towards firearms licensing, police training, mental health services, and victims services.
Brings Massachusetts into compliance with the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).
Limits gun buyers to one firearm purchase per month.

That makes it awfully convenient for the government to suddenly confiscate and deny having them.
If you have ten thousand regulations you destroy all respect for the law.
I don’t live there but have to say,”From my cold dead hands”
No way, no how.
Talk about the fox guarding the hen house!
How ‘bout your let us keep your union thugs in a warehouse along with your dem politicians.?
Are they forgetting what April 19, 1775 was all about?
That is fine because all the military assault type weapons they talk about are already stored in armories, unless they are being used in a combat zone. Of course libs have this misguided perception that if the weapon is Black and ugly it is an assault weapon.
Yeah, we could just keep them in armories over at Lexington and Concord...
So if I keep them at the gun club I can get the m-16 fire control group and the auto sear too ? /sarc
Some pretty wide ranging proposals there that have nothing to do with scary black guns.
If my age related memory loss is not mistaken this same proposal came up about two years ago.
Didn’t the Democrats PROMISE US that no one would be collecting guns?
That’s why it’s important to keep these stories front and center...NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE!!
It’s not confiscation... it’s “safe storage.”
This is nonsense, they are just going to move us all to a special ghetto section of Chicago for our own safety.
Linsky is an idiot and his proposal will never pass.
Gun grabbers keep pointing to Australia, but refuse to acknowledge that fewer than 25% of guns were turned in.
“Keep and Bear” does NOT mean, “store them at the tyrant’s house”!
This proposal must have missed the “not to be infringed” part of the the deal.
This is major infringment.
Not only are they forgetting the cause, they are also forgetting the result.
On the other hand, they might have gone to a public school and were never taught about that period of time.
And what do you expect from a-holes who put a lock on a Committee of Safety flintlock musket hanging from the wall of the State Legislature?
