Massachusetts: Make Your Voice Heard in Opposition to the Governor’s Anti-Gun Bill!

Monday, June 7, 2010

Please Contact the Members of the Joint Committee on the Judiciary Today!

Governor Deval Patrick (D) is at it again.  He is twisting the arms of the members of the Joint Committee on the Judiciary, urging them to take action on House Bill 4102.

H.4102, among other things, would limit firearm purchases to one per 30-day period and require the private transfer of all firearms, even those between family and friends, to be conducted through a federally licensed firearms dealer.

This proposal, in essence, is a repeat of Chapter 180 of the Acts of 1998, statutes that created some of the most confusing and ill-advised set of gun laws in the nation.  The vast majority of those new laws attacked lawful gun owners and did little, if anything, to address violent crime in the Commonwealth.  The only result has been a startling 85% decrease in the number of lawfully licensed gun owners in Massachusetts and a dramatic increase in crime. 

If enacted, H.4102 would have disastrous effects on the Second Amendment rights of Massachusetts’ law-abiding gun owners.  Please contact the members of the Joint Committee on the Judiciary IMMEDIATELY and respectfully urge them to oppose H.4102.  Contact information can be found below.
