Charlotte, NC –-(Ammoland.com)- Governor Deval Patrick (D) and anti-gun legislators in the Massachusetts General Court have wasted no time this legislative session trying to victimize and disarm law-abiding residents of the Bay State.
Shortly over a week ago, Governor Patrick filed legislation entitled “An Act to Strengthen and Enhance Firearms Laws in the Commonwealth” and has been aggressively lobbying the state legislature to take action on his restrictive proposal.
If this legislation is passed and enacted into law, the following changes will occur to Massachusetts’ already restrictive gun laws:
- You will be forced to sell or lawfully dispose of any magazine capable of holding more than ten rounds.
- You will be limited to seven round magazines.
- You will only be able to purchase one firearm a month.
- You will be subject to a background check and a fee (gun tax) for the private transfer of firearms between family and friends.
You need to contact your state legislators TODAY and express your opposition to Governor Patrick’s bill and any proposed legislation that would infringe upon your Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
