House Speaker Robert DeLeo (D-Winthrop)

Gun Banning MA House Speaker Robert DeLeo (D-Winthrop), is attempting to jam gun control legislation through legislature without public comment or debate…

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- A radical anti-gun bill, House Bill 4121, was rammed through the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security in a rare, non-publicized electronic poll vote on Saturday, June 7 2014.

Floor debate in the Massachusetts House of Representatives could begin as early as this week, and your immediate assistance is needed to defeat HB 4121.

HB 4121 is dangerous legislation that seeks to further strip away your Second Amendment rights in Massachusetts.  As anyone who has gone through the process to legally obtain a firearm in Massachusetts knows, there is no dearth of existing state laws that regulate the sale, purchase and transfer of firearms.  State legislators on Beacon Hill should be repealing gun control laws, NOT enacting more to further restrict your Second Amendment rights.

This egregious bill would empower police chiefs with discretion in licensing owners for shotguns and rifles, ban the private sale of firearms except through a licensed gun dealer, grant authority to the state Attorney General to remove certain firearms from the approved “firearms roster” and require gun owners to provide a list of all firearms they currently own to the state with each renewal of their license.

These requirements are only a few of the many onerous and deeply flawed provisions that penalize responsible gun owners and sportsmen in Massachusetts and could turn law-abiding citizens into criminals.  Unfortunately, it seems as though the misguided Massachusetts General Court won’t stop until they have completely obliterated your rights.

As we’ve seen in other states, such as New York, these controversial registration schemes begin the slide down a slippery slope toward eventual confiscation.

Historical evidence clearly proves that gun registration enables gun confiscation, and criminals never register their firearms.

HB 4121 was introduced less than three weeks ago by House Speaker Robert DeLeo (D-Winthrop), and it seems that he is attempting to quietly jam this legislation through the process without adequate time and opportunity for public comment.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH; IT’S TIME TO TAKE A STAND! 

It is critical that you contact your state Representative today and tell him or her that you oppose these unconstitutional and unnecessary restrictions on your Right to Keep and Bear Arms.  Urge your state Representative to vote AGAINST HB 4121.

    1. What’s really upsetting is that a lot of these proposed laws may end up as models for future Federal Firearms Law. On that matter the Whitehouse has already ‘tipped it’s hand’!

    2. With the ocean being so close, why not take this jerk down to the harbor and see how long it takes the bubbles to stop?

      Massachusetts votes hardcore Democrat, they are reaping what they sown. Screw Massachusetts.

    4. Thanks for the support Gunnychuck! Nice to know we stand together. Some of us don’t have the option to leave this semi-socialist state (yet).
