Radical Anti-Gun Bill Up for Consideration in Massachusetts

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 3.33.17 PM
The Massachusetts House Ways and Means Committee will be considering and voting on a radical anti-gun bill, House Bill 4121, any day now.

This egregious bill would empower police chiefs with discretion in licensing owners for shotguns and rifles, ban the private sale of firearms except through a licensed gun dealer, and create new firearm possession qualifications that could ban firearm ownership for thousands of hunters and gun enthusiasts across the Commonwealth.

These requirements are only a few of the many onerous and deeply flawed provisions that penalize responsible gun owners and sportsmen in Massachusetts and could turn law-abiding citizens into criminals. Unfortunately, it seems as though the misguided Massachusetts General Court won’t stop until they have completely obliterated your rights. As we’ve seen in other states, such as New York, these controversial registration schemes begin the slide down a slippery slope toward eventual confiscation. Historical evidence clearly proves that gun registration enables gun confiscation, and criminals never register their firearms.

HB 4121 is dangerous legislation that seeks to further strip away your Second Amendment rights in Massachusetts. As anyone who has gone through the process to legally obtain a firearm in Massachusetts knows, there is no dearth of existing state laws that regulate the sale, purchase and transfer of firearms. State legislators on Beacon Hill should be repealing gun control laws, NOT enacting more to further restrict your Second Amendment rights.

It is critical that you contact members of the House Ways and Means Committee and urge them to vote against this dangerous anti-gun bill. Using the contact information provided below, please call AND e-mail members of the committee and URGE them to vote NO on House Bill 4121. Please also call the committee switchboard at (617) 722-2990 to register your opposition to HB 4121.

    All Mass needs to do is move your guns and report them Stolen fools if you turn them in see whoever votes for taking your guns is against you !!

  • John Thompson

    I would call every American That is for the country to call in regards to our nation for Mass is part of our Call to duty it is our duty to back our brothers and sister of every state in the union. No matter what state of the union you come from Mass Calif Alaska Hi. if you say nothing and it moves from Mass to your State you say nothing If your party or rep votes for this in they are an enemy of your country and an enemy of the 2nd amendment.

  • More evidence that the Second Amendment cannot protect our weapons. For two reasons why the Second Amendment is doomed, see http://www.constitutionmythbusters.org/the-second-amendment-is-doomed/.

  • Jim Kirk

    if i lived there, unlike all you mass. sheep do, i wouldn’t register a f’king thing nor turn anything in….would shoot anyone trying to get mine and would join any organized armed march against the mass. sh’t police or whoever..

  • ADRoberts

    You won’t have to keep track of who these people are. God has an excellent memory and WILL judge them fairly and probably cast them into darkness for eternity.

    • Kent2012

      True however God occasionally is busy and we want to help send some of those haters of America to an even better place, he!!….send ice water

  • Shawn O’Loughlin

    The American Communist Party.. um, I mean the Democratic Party owns Massachusetts. They will pass any Un-American laws they want to. Facts and even our opinions don’t matter here, only furthering communist ideals. “Progressive”s in Ma are progressing towards SOMETHING….you can bet it’s not American freedom.

  • Tim Russell

    Let me know when the bill passes so I can inform all the criminals nobody out there has a gun… Man, its like FREE for the taking!!

  • Bob

    UNGODLY – Jesus want’s HIS people to be armed – sad state of affairs when Christianity is attacked on all fronts & this is only one of the many fronts.

  • Finkster

    I wonder is these Idiots in Massachusetts were ever taught about, “The Shot Heard Around The World”?

    When that time comes again, we need to remember the list of TRAITOR who voted for this Unconstitutional measure and the Governor who signs it into law. And the Judges that uphold this TYRANNY as the law. It’s going to be Concord all over again.

    • Sardis

      So are you saying that you want to shoot and kill U.S. soldiers? Because remember, that what’s the actual result would be of your adolescent Revolutionary War fantasy if it were ever realized.

      • Finkster

        It’s your Adolescent Fantasy. I doubt that U.S. Soldiers will go against Veterans and Patriotic Citizens who would stand up against the Tyrannical Actions of the National Socialist who are enacting laws against our Constitution and our GOD given rights. As a matter of fact, our Military leadership would support the people in such action against corrupt Political Governance. It’s their Constitutional Duty. And I doubt that the Military Leadership would turn Traitorous against the Constitution and the People.
        There may be some of you nitwits out there who support such Lunacy of the National Socialist but the Patriots won’t have to worry. They’ll already have your firearms taken from you.

        • Sardis

          Well if the populace and the soldiers and anyone else who matters are already on your side, who do you expect to be fighting? A few hundred politicians in DC? And why hasn’t your Revolution happened yet? I’ll tell you–it’s the same reason your “American Spring” failed to launch. The simpleminded right wing radicals who don’t like having a president with a funny foreign-sounding name also think their “movement” is much more mainstream than it really is.

          • Finkster

            Na, You LEFTIST Marxist Progressive Liberals are so far off the path of American Constitutionalism that you can’t see the Forest because of the trees. Nobody wants a Revolution. Everyone wants our elected officials to just follow our Constitution and don’t PROGRESSIVELY keep passing laws to nibble away at the Citizens Rights. That’s one reason they call them Liberal Progressives.
            They are the ones who will start the fight when they think they will have enough control to do so. Just like Hitler did in Germany.
            But this time around their Ineptitude will be working against them. You can call all the Veterans and Patriots simpleminded Right Wing radicals you want. But we know who the simpleminded Nitwits are this time. And I look for the Liberal Democrat Politico to continue to divide the people in hopes that they will have their Brown Shirts ready for their Agenda to be fully implemented. Just like Mao Zedong did in China with his Red Army. And of course Liberal Progressive Politico will seek Military assistance from outside sources.

  • Sheri

    Sounds like Mass. really wanted to be controlled by the King. All that wasted tea.

    • Sardis

      I don’t think Massachusetts has forgotten about freedom. Rather, they see the difference between protesting taxation without representation and sane measures to end a state-sanctioned firearms black market.

  • Kent2012

    soon we will read of more of the original 13 passing laws that would cause stalin and mao to whinney with joy….better hurry New Englanders, the communist clowns in californication are in the front of the pack….

  • Joken Joe

    Massatwosh*t-shirts. What a wast of space.

  • Doc

    It’s Massoftwoshits, What else would you expect?
