U.S.A. -( Since the start of the 2021 Legislative Session, the Massachusetts House has seen the introduction of multiple anti-gun bills.  A couple of the more egregious ones are outlined below:

HD 135 – An Act Relative to Universal Background Checks for Private Gun Sales (Rep. David Linsky)

    • Bans most firearm sales and transfers between private individuals without first paying fees and obtaining government permission.  Firearm sales between friends or neighbors would not be exempted.  This proposal would have no impact on crime and is completely unenforceable.

HD 136 – An Act to Require Liability Insurance for Gun Ownership (Rep. David Linsky)

    • Requires liability insurance for anyone who possesses, carries, or owns a firearm. The one exception is that it does not apply to someone who possesses a firearm on a temporary basis while at a licensed gun club.

Your NRA-ILA will continue to monitor these anti-gun bills and keep you updated on any changes or hearings that come up.  Be sure to stay-tuned to NRA-ILA Alerts, and encourage your friends, family, and fellow gun owners to do the same!

You personally should feel free to come and take my guns anytime. I will feel free to personally stop you.


i love the liability insurance clause. What if no one wants to carry that insurance and what if those that do, jack up the prices so high that it is really an imposition on some and a major hard ship on the people that need it most.

I think this is a racist gun bill myself. If having to obtain a license or voter registration card to vote is asking to much on the people then this proposal is even worse and is just there to keep the poor man defenseless and unarmed.

Damn lefty’s.


They’re going to force us to carry the liability insurance like auto insurance!


It is not a coincidence that there has been a wild expansion of anti-gun
laws put forth since November. Stole the election, now to steal your

Biden says he is going to come after our guns. Somehow I do not believe doing so will unite the country. He says that is his main objective and also says it is now united since he became president.  Perhaps he should study the history of the United States before he makes such a statement.   Twice in our past a war started when a force with intentions of confiscating Americans guns took place. The revolutionary war with England and another revolutionary war with Mexico when the Mexicans came after Texans guns.  Both aggressors lost! In neither case was the war itself over arms but… Read more »


That’s one hell of a wall of text.

Who are the redcoats now?


HD-135 is absolutely stupid because every person with a permit to carry has already had a background check and is the reason why they can buy from someone!


Hard to believe that Mass can come up with even more anti gun laws. But the antis are trying some crazy shit now. Just look at HR 127.

Just exactly do they enforce such a law?

It should now be becoming more and more obvious to all Americans these so called democrats, who are in reality communists, are out to destroy America’s constitution and liberty altogether. No matter what they say their objective is. They hated President Donald Trump and now they fear him as a citizen because they thought they had succeeded in obtaining total and complete power under the criminal Obama administration. He proved that wrong.  It has been said time and time again that the so called democrats are trying to bring down President Trump. Although that is true that is not their final goal. The final… Read more »


Arizona Don,

Do you back the blue?

Do you support our troops?

Most of those people shouldn’t have a gun anyway. Mental problems.


What a sweet and insightful thing to say.

From where, pray tell, did you obtain your degree in psychiatry?

You think maybe he was referring to the idiots in the State Legislature?


Most of what people, they all have background checks before they’re issued a permit to carry
