NEWTOWN, Conn –-( The final public hearing of the Massachusetts State legislature’s Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security was held one week ago today in Boston.

That committee is looking at more than 60 bills to make firearms ownership more restrictive in a state that already has some of strictest regulations in the nation.

While acknowledging this fact, the Boston Globe, ever so predictably and reflexively, called for even more laws.

NSSF has responded with a letter to the editor, which we cannot predict will be published, so we share it with you here.

NSSF continues to monitor legislative developments in Massachusetts and is working closely with our member companies there. We will keep you up to date as we learn more.

Again, when any politician wants to infringe on our 2nd Amendment rights, you need to ask yourself what that politician has in their agenda that would make them fear law abiding armed citizens. This has nothing to do with public safety or crime reduction. It is all about controlling the public, making us bend to the will of the “RULING ARISTOCRICY”.
Why should we have to justify, or qualify to avail ourselves of our God given, Constitutionally protected rights? You don’t see journalists qualifying before they write an article.


What are they going to do when all the guns are gone and the gun crime gets even worse? Who or what are they going to blame next. The next thing they will be wanting to ban are those pesky high capacity knives like they are doing over in Britain. after that they will want to ban the people. WHAT THEY SHOULD BE GOING AFTER ARE THE CRIMINALS THAT ARE COMMITTING THE CRIMES. Guns do not commit crimes the person using the gun commits the crime.


Ahhh, I see. More laws are what’s needed! Riiiiiiiiiiight, because once you make something illegal, everyone stops doing it. It should be illegal to shoot people, too Why didn’t someone think of that sooner?
