Northboro, MA – -(Ammoland.com)-  Great news! The Massachusetts House has voted favorably on the pepper spray amendment 142-0! The bill will now go to the Senate for vote.

The LTC portion was dropped and not voted on. We will update when the Senate is ready to debate this important legislation.

Thanks to everyone who helped with this amendment and especially to Rep. Kim Ferguson.

Boston.com coverage: “The House backed an amendment sought by the Gun Owners Action League that would allow women to purchase pepper spray as protection without first obtaining a firearms identification card.”

Boston Herald coverage: “Wallace and GOAL pushed an amendment to the much-needed bill strengthening domestic violence laws. It would allow anyone over 18 to buy pepper spray without a Firearms Identification Card.”
