Massachusetts Legislature Set to Vote on Sweeping New Gun Control Bill Any Day Now
Guns Saves Lives ^ | June 23, 2014 | Staff

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 won’t stop until they have completely obliterated your rights. As we’ve 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.

Is that Statue in Mass.? (assuming it is )

someone should take a Sawzall and chop off that rifle from his hands.

Lets hear from the libs how that would be horrific vandalism.

After all, what message are they sending to the children with a public image such as that?

You'll have to fill out an application, if that is approved, there will be an interview process.

Also, being that it appears you are from Massachusetts, you will more than likely be on double secret probation for an undetermined period of time.

“Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms. This is not to say that firearms should not be very carefully used, and that definite safety rules of precaution should not be taught and enforced. But the right of citizens to bear arms is just one more guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard against tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible."

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.

We can't get around the rules, but since you are both freepers, I would be willing to sponsor you. That would speed the process up and make you less suspicious. :^O

Supposing I wear my “American by birth, Yankee by the grace of God” t-shirt, would that speed things along as well?

The Lexington Minuteman, in the center of Lexington, Massachusetts, the hometown in which Jack Hammer grew up and lived to the age of thirty-one.

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