NEWTOWN, Conn --(Ammoland.com)- After more than a year of committee hearings and task force recommendations, House Speaker Robert DeLeo is ready to introduce new gun control legislation aimed at curbing violence in Massachusetts.

DeLeo plans to introduce the bill Tuesday, May 27 2014 at 10:45 a.m. in the House Member’s Lounge with Public Safety Committee Chairman Harold Naughton and Northeastern University Associate Dean Jack McDevitt, who chaired the speaker’s task force on gun violence and made recommendations to the Legislature.

NSSF has worked closely with the legislature and believe that the focus of the bill will be on our FixNICS campaign and not on cosmetic or arbitrary restrictions on firearms and magazines.

About NSSFThe National Shooting Sports Foundation is the trade association for the firearms industry. Its mission is to promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports. Formed in 1961, NSSF has a membership of more than 6,000 manufacturers, distributors, firearms retailers, shooting ranges, sportsmen’s organizations and publishers.

      Whatever they come up with will not deter organized crime,nor make any of us law abiding citizens safer.What it will do is take away our ability to protect ourselves from criminals.But it will make us more insecure in our homes and our property.The police cannot be everywhere,and they have no obligation to protect you. This has been settled in court.Little people with anything to lose will be leaving Massachusetts. The rich have gated communities or security guards.They will stay.
