Governor Deval Patrick’s (D) anti-gun bill is currently awaiting consideration in the House Ways and Means Committee and it could be voted on as early as next week.
Among other things, House Bill 4102 would limit lawful 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.
In essence, this bill is a repeat of Chapter 180 of the Acts of 1998; statutes that created some of the most confusing and ill-advised 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 results have been a startling 85 percent 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.
