Massachusetts Emergency Powers Legislation Needs Your Help!

Friday, November 16, 2007

Senate Bill 1401, sponsored by State Senator Richard Moore (D-Worcester and Norfolk), would prohibit law enforcement or government officials from confiscating the "lawfully owned or lawfully carried" firearms of citizens during a declared state of emergency.  It would also penalize those officials who choose to ignore this law and attempt to confiscate firearms.

Please contact your State Representative and State Senator TODAY at (617) 722-2000 and respectfully urge them to write a letter to the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security, asking that S.1401 be released with a favorable report before the holiday break.
