One-Gun-A-Month Bill Filed in Massachusetts!

Friday, May 4, 2007

House Bill 3991, “An Act to Reduce Gun Violence,” filed by Governor Deval Patrick (D) is still sitting in the Judiciary Committee.  H 3991, previously numbered H 3978, would limit law-abiding Massachusetts gun buyers from purchasing more than firearm in a month’s time.

 

Please contact the Judiciary Committee members today and respectfully urge them to oppose H 3991 and any other proposal that limits the rights of lawful gun owners.  Also, please contact Governor Patrick at (617) 725-4005 and politely ask him to withdraw this anti-gun legislation.  Be sure to let your legislators know that the best way to reduce gun violence in Massachusetts is not to create new laws, but to enforce the laws against violent criminals that are already on the books.
