MASS. and bill 4102

Governor’s Anti-Gun Bill to be Heard on Tuesday, July 14
Please Contact the Members of the Joint Committee on the Judiciary!



As we reported in May, Governor Deval Patrick (D) introduced a bill that would have disastrous effects on the Second Amendment rights of Massachusetts ’ law-abiding gun owners. This bill, House Bill 4102, is scheduled to be heard on Tuesday, July 14 in the Joint Committee on the Judiciary.



House Bill 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.



Please contact the members of the Joint Committee on the Judiciary TODAY and respectfully urge them to oppose this poorly conceived and unjust attack on law-abiding gun owners’ Second Amendment freedoms. Contact information for the committee can be found below.
