NEWTOWN, Conn --(Ammoland.com)- Once again politicians in Boston are more concerned about burdening law-abiding gun owners and retailers and forcing the closure of major Massachusetts manufacturers rather than focusing on economic problems facing the state.

State Sen. Anthony Petruccelli’s microstamping legislation (S.835) will be heard in the Joint Judiciary Committee this Wednesday at 1 p.m. in Room A-1. Microstamping is a patented, sole-sourced concept that independent studies have proven to be flawed and easily defeated by criminals.

Smith and Wesson, Kahr Arms and Savage Arms and their nearly 2,000 jobs would be impacted by this legislation. The companies would most likely have to abandon the state.

The firearms industry in Massachusetts contributes more than $1.1 billion dollars in economic activity yearly. NSSF encourages everyone in Massachusetts to contact members of the Joint Judiciary Committee to express opposition to this legislation.
