Posted on 07/07/2013 6:53:23 PM PDT by neverdem
Next Monday, July 8, the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security is scheduled to hear 58 pieces of legislation that would impact your Second Amendment rights if passed and enacted into law. This public hearing will take place at Assumption College located at 500 Salisbury Street in Worcester.
It is very important that pro-Second Amendment supporters attend this hearing to voice their opposition to the proposed reactionary anti-gun legislation that turns law-abiding citizens into victims or criminals. We need our elected officials to understand that restricting the rights of lawful and responsible gun owners is not the appropriate solution to reduce crime. Gun control is not crime control.
By attending this hearing, either by speaking or simply being present, you will have a chance to stand up for freedom and express your opposition to these misguided anti-gun proposals. Input received at this public hearing will determine the direction the Massachusetts General Court takes on our Second Amendment rights in this legislative session.
It is crucial that gun owners, sportsmen and supporters of the Second Amendment attend this hearing and firmly voice opposition to ineffective anti-gun legislation. If you cannot attend this important public hearing, please contact your state legislators TODAY to express your opposition to Governor Patricks bill and any proposed legislation that would infringe upon your Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

There is no difference between restricting one constitutional right and restricting another. When is the finger printing, background check, photo ID you can only get in one building in the state (that has only one line for service) to vote? Or to attend a religious service, speak your mind at a town council meeting, NOT have troops quartered in your dwelling, etc.
When is someone going to challenge the cost of all these permits as racist against the poor blacks and Hispanics that can't afford them or have transportation to get to that one building in the state to apply for the permit? Racists
Anyone have any idea of what these proposed bills would do? I.e similar to NY or CO?
