Boston, Massachusetts - -(Ammoland.com)- Tomorrow, Wednesday April 3rd 2013 at noon the citizens of the state of Massachusetts will assemble in support of their constitutionally protected right to own a firearm.

In recent months the legislature and Governor Deval Patrick have made clear their intentions to persecute the law abiding gun owner as an ill conceived plan to curb criminal activity in the inner city, and in lieu of the Sandy Hook Newtown CT shooting.

Some of the many onerous restrictions suggested have included an insurance mandate for gun owners, 7 round magazine ban, and criminalization of private transfers of firearms—including those among family members. The Commonwealth’s premier civil rights group for firearm owners, Gun Owners Action League has organized a demonstration with the help of hundreds of Massachusetts residents to make clear the views of the over 387,000 people that use firearms for sport, recreation, and personal protection.

While the crime rates in Massachusetts have risen since the passage of one of the most restrictive pieces of anti civil rights legislation in the country, other states that recognize “right to carry” have seen massive statistical drops in crime since 1998. In fact, Massachusetts is the only state that refuses to allow women to carry defensive pepper spray without costly licensing, failure to comply results in a felony.

The timing for this rally falls some 238 years after the very pillars of liberty upon which our country were founded were enunciated in Boston. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has a rich and storied tradition in defending liberty from overzealous politicians. Citizens will assemble peaceably at the Parkman bandstand at noon on Wednesday and March to the capital.

Speakers include:

  • Alan Gottlieb, the founder of the nationally renowned Second Amendment Foundation.
  • Rich Pearson of the Illinois State Rifle Association.
  • Jim Wallace, Executive Director of Gun Owners Action League.
