Please Contact Your State Senator Today!

S.1401,  "An Act Prohibiting the Confiscation of Lawfully Owned Firearms During a State of Emergency", sponsored by State Senator Richard T. Moore (Worcester and Norfolk), has been released favorably by the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security and will now head to the Senate floor for consideration.  S.1401 would protect our Second Amendment rights by prohibiting any government agency from confiscating or regulating the lawful sale, possession, transfer, transport and carry of firearms during a state of emergency. 

Please contact your State Senator today at (617) 722-1455 and urge their support for S.1401.  You can find your State Senator and his or her contact information by clicking here.
