Anti-Gun Bills to be Heard in Massachusetts Joint Committee

Friday, June 17, 2011

The Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security will hear fifteen firearm-related bills on Tuesday, June 21, at 1:00 p.m.  More specifically, this committee will hear anti-gun legislation regarding one-gun-a-month, handgun projectile regulations, requiring insurance policies for persons with concealed carry licenses, and micro-stamping.  A full listing of all fifteen bills on the agenda will be available on Monday, June 20, but these four are certain.

Senate Bill 1202, sponsored by state Senator Cynthia Stone Creem (D-Newton), would make it a crime to purchase or sell to the same person more than one firearm or “large capacity weapon” in a thirty-day period.  The punishment for a first offense in violation of such gun rationing for both the retailer and the purchaser would be up to a $5,000 fine and/or two-and-a-half years imprisonment.

Senate Bill 1234, sponsored by state Senator James Timilty (D-Walpole), would make it unlawful to manufacture, sell or possess a projectile or projectile core which may be used in a handgun and which is constructed entirely from one or a combination of tungsten alloys, steel, iron, brass, bronze, beryllium copper, or depleted uranium; or a full jacketed projectile larger than .22 caliber designed and intended for use in a handgun and whose jacket has a weight of more than 25 percent of the total weight of the projectile.

House Bill 665, sponsored by state Representative Timothy J. Toomey, Jr. (D-Cambridge), would require all concealed carry applicants to present a complete list of every handgun owned along with a certificate of insurance verifying that the applicant has a valid insurance policy insuring against any harm or damage that might arise out of the use of each firearm on said list.  The insurance policy would need to be in the amount of at least $250,000.

House Bill 1561, sponsored by state Representative David Paul Linsky (D-Natick), would require all firearms of new manufacture to bear serial numbers permanently inscribed on a visible metal area with the serial numbers being kept on record by the manufacturer.  In addition, all semi-automatic firearms would be required to micro-stamp ammunition by mechanically stamping a code that would imprint the make, model and serial number onto the cartridge case when the gun discharged.

If you are able, please attend this hearing to show your support for our Second Amendment freedoms.  Also, please contact members of the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security and urge them to OPPOSE S.1202, S.1234, H.665 and H.1561.  Contact information for this committee can be found here.
