Comm2A Demands State Comply with Court Orders

Comm2A Cease and Desist
Comm2A Cease and Desist

Massachusetts – -( On Monday November 26th, 2018, Comm2A sent a Cease and Desist letter to James Slater, Commissioner of the MA Department of Criminal Justice Information Systems (DCJIS) demanding that his department cease their interference with the restoration of LTCs as order by several Massachusetts courts.

In May of this year DCJIS instructed police chiefs to revoke firearms licenses issued to hundreds of individuals who had previously been cleared to own guns.

Each of these individuals have gone through a long and expensive process to have their Second Amendment rights restored following long-ago convictions for minor, non-violent misdemeanors. DCJIS actions were based upon a flawed reading of federal law and were undertaken at the direction of the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE).

With the help of attorneys hired by Comm2A, seven district courts (and counting) have issued decisions ordering the restoration of firearms licenses to people that the Commonwealth had previously cleared. Despite these court orders, the Commonwealth has doubled down as evidenced by this November 26th email (Firearms License Review Board) to police chiefs from EOPSS Secretary Dan Bennett.

Boston Globe:

DCJIS and the Baker administration have clearly exceeded their legal authority. In doing so they have chosen set aside the law, legislative intent, and judicial review in favor of subjugating residents of the Commonwealth to the BATFE’s will.

Comm2A is committed to continuing this fight until the Baker Administration stops playing politics with individual rights.

This is EXACTLY why we have the Electoral College. Otherwise we would be suffering under the BLUE city rules. Look to Austrailia that elects via the popular vote and what has happened to their gun laws.

18 USC 247 – Conspiracy to deprive a person of their rights. Might be worth it to bring in SAF support via an amicus brief including that Federal Statute.

I’m glad I don’t live in Mass. and I doubt if I will ever darken their doorstep. A good place to stay away from.


As I type this,my Brother in law is on his way down here. Lived all his life (most part) in Mass. Sold his house and is not letting the state line hit him in the ass. Toodle lou Mass.


Whatever happened to Citizen’s Arrest? Isn’t it time to actively pursue and arrest these law-breakers? We know the judicial, executive and legislative systems are rigged on most levels. A Second American Revolution is just around the corner if things do not significantly change and we KNOW we cannot trust the lying politicians on both sides of the fence. Maybe another “revolution” is what they’re hoping for. I can no longer “read” their intent. The GOP proved themselves as cowardly, unworthy representatives in the last 2 years. Our so-called” elected officials care NOTHING for us, only their pensions and free entitlements… Read more »

@mac, After the Citizen’s arrest, where would you hold him? To which prosecutor would you take your properly typed up case? Who would be your defense lawyer in the kidnap case against you? And your defense lawyer in the civil case, who would he be?
As someone already observed, just look at the areas that supported the democrat national socialists, in the last election. Those areas are cities, and we have them surrounded. It makes the mind wander.
To all patriots, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Rifle.
