Next Monday, July 8, the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security is scheduled to hear 58 pieces of legislation that would impact your Second Amendment rights if passed and enacted into law. This public hearing will take place at Assumption College located at 500 Salisbury Street in Worcester.
It is very important that pro-Second Amendment supporters attend this hearing to voice their opposition to the proposed reactionary anti-gun legislation that turns law-abiding citizens into victims or criminals. We need our elected officials to understand that restricting the rights of lawful and responsible gun owners is not the appropriate solution to reduce crime. Gun control is not crime control.
By attending this hearing, either by speaking or simply being present, you will have a chance to stand up for freedom and express your opposition to these misguided anti-gun proposals. Input received at this public hearing will determine the direction the Massachusetts General Court takes on our Second Amendment rights in this legislative session.
It is crucial that gun owners, sportsmen and supporters of the Second Amendment attend this hearing and firmly voice opposition to ineffective anti-gun legislation. If you cannot attend this important public hearing, please contact your state legislators TODAY to express your opposition to Governor Patrick’s bill and any proposed legislation that would infringe upon your Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
