Governor Deval Patrick (D) has announced a gun control plan that is as affront to law-abiding gun owners, sportsmen and Second Amendment supporters in Massachusetts. The Bay State already has the third most restrictive gun control laws in the entire country, yet Governor Patrick’s far reaching proposal is as an attempt to further disenfranchise law-abiding gun owners.
Some of the most onerous aspects of Governor Patrick’s proposal include:
Arbitrary and unconstitutional legislation will only victimize law-abiding citizens, leaving them vulnerable to violent and/or insane criminals who will never comply with state gun control laws.
Dozens of misguided anti-gun bills have already been proposed that will only serve to penalize law-abiding citizens in Massachusetts. In addition to the proposal put forward by Governor Patrick, there has already been serious discussion by members of the Massachusetts General Court to restrict magazine capacity, impose further bans on certain semi-automatic rifles, establish one-gun-a-month restrictions, enact mandatory storage and insurance requirements, impose additional excise taxes on firearms and ammunition, and much more.
If you thought it could not get worse in Massachusetts, you were wrong. The battle to protect our gun rights that lies before us in this legislative session is unlike any one we have ever seen. Please contact your state legislators and Governor Patrick, and encourage them to stand up for freedom and protect your Right to Keep and Bear Arms this legislative session.
