U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Today, November 16th, the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security will be holding a public hearing at 11:00 AM, to discuss numerous bills pertaining to firearm laws in the state.  Please contact committee members and ask them to OPPOSE anti-gun measures that would place further burdens on law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen. 

CLICK HERE TAKE ACTION!

Some of the latest in this line of ill-founded proposals are:

  • Firearm rationing schemes
  • Criminalizing private firearm transfers
  • Increased taxes on firearms and ammunition
  • Required liability insurance for gun ownership

Fortunately, there are a number of pro-gun proposals before the committee that would make positive reforms for firearm owners in the Commonwealth. Please contact committee members today and urge them to reject proposals pushing gun control, and to SUPPORT House Bills 2512 and House Bill 2536.

House Bill 2512: creates a new section of the law that provides a clear presumption that the right to keep and bear arms is an individual civil right in Massachusetts. The bill also provides protection against other government entities in the state from passing laws that further restrict Second Amendment rights.  State firearms preemption avoids a confusing patchwork of firearms laws across the state.

House Bill 2536 enacts into state law a provision to expand protections for out-of-state/non-residents while traveling through the Commonwealth with a firearm to avoid harassment and any unnecessary delays.  Current federal law, the Firearms Owners Protection Act (FOPA), provides legal protection for lawful gun owners traveling across the country.  This law allows lawful gun owners to transport firearms across state lines to and from certain locations as long as firearms are unloaded and stored in the trunk or locked container.

Again, please contact committee members and urge them to OPPOSE any and all anti-gun measures, and to SUPPORT House Bills 2512 and 2536.

  • Firearm rationing schemes

Requires a firearm registry to keep track of rationing.

  • Criminalizing private firearm transfers

Can’t keep an accurate registry if firearms are sold privately.

  • Increased taxes on firearms and ammunition

(TAX THE EVIL – JUST FOR FUN) To exercise your rights will COST YOU!

  • Required liability insurance for gun ownership

Requires a firearm registry.

CAN’T CONFISCATE WITHOUT A REGISTRY!!!
Hey – it’s like when NY said:
IF YOU LIKE YOUR AR15, YOU CAN KEEP YOUR AR15
YOU ARE JUST REQUIRED TO REGISTER IT TO OUR CONFISCATION DATABASE!
They REALLY want a gun registration database!

Nothing proposed to eliminate the real causes of crimes: single parent, dysfunctional homes; collapsing culture; lack of religious instruction and practice; a culture of self-centered materialism and so on. No, nothing. Why? The aforementioned are all a product of progressive public policy choices. Dare not question the intent behind nor the consequences of progressive public policy.
