Posted on 06/23/2014 2:44:30 PM PDT by lbryce
The following legislative update is via the NRA-ILA. The Massachusetts House Ways and Means Committee will be considering and voting on a radical anti-gun bill, House Bill 4121, any day now.
Your immediate action and help is needed to defeat this misguided legislation in committee.
This egregious bill would empower police chiefs with discretion in licensing owners for shotguns and rifles, ban the private sale of firearms except through a licensed gun dealer, and create new firearm possession qualifications that could ban firearm ownership for thousands of hunters and gun enthusiasts across the Commonwealth.
These requirements are only a few of the many onerous and deeply flawed provisions that penalize responsible gun owners and sportsmen in Massachusetts and could turn law-abiding citizens into criminals. Unfortunately, it seems as though the misguided Massachusetts General Court wont stop until they have completely obliterated your rights. As weve seen in other states, such as New York, these controversial registration schemes begin the slide down a slippery slope toward eventual confiscation. Historical evidence clearly proves that gun registration enables gun confiscation, and criminals never register their firearms.
HB 4121 is dangerous legislation that seeks to further strip away your Second Amendment rights in Massachusetts. As anyone who has gone through the process to legally obtain a firearm in Massachusetts knows, there is no dearth of existing state laws that regulate the sale, purchase and transfer of firearms. State legislators on Beacon Hill should be repealing gun control laws, NOT enacting more to further restrict your Second Amendment rights.

Would that apply to me,too? While I admit that I wanted Humphrey to win in '68 I wasn't of age to vote until '72 and I have never,*ever*,voted for a Rat in my life.
Supposing I wear my “American by birth, Yankee by the grace of God” t-shirt, would that speed things along as well?

Now living a stone’s throw down the road, and, yes, I’m ready to move to Texas.
