The MA Proposals

I thought it would be a good idea to start a new thread with this right up top, so as not to be missed within the other thread.

Speaking as someone formerly from there, I think they have lost their minds. These things are unbelievable and make the new laws in NY pale in comparison. There is just no explaining how targeting legal gun owners like this has any effect on crime and safety. It's insanity at its very worst, in the very birthplace of our nation. God help us.

•10 round magazines loaded with more than 7 rounds, punishable by more than two years in jail.
•Magazines containing more than 10 rounds, punishable by up to 10 years in jail.
•Potential confiscation of lawfully purchased long guns and high capacity magazines (greater than 10 round capacity).
•A complete ban on semi-automatic rifles with certain cosmetic features. (AR type rifles)
•Up to 2 ½ years in jail for receiving more than 1 gun or magazine in a 30-day period.
•Mandatory large capacity guns storage at gun clubs instead of in home.
•Lawful private sales recorded on FA-10 forms will no longer be allowed.
•Ban "high power" ammunition. (there's been no definition provided as to what that is)
•Expanding local licensing authorities discretion to deny or restrict licenses to all guns including FID cards.
•Mandatory insurance for all firearms owners.
•New proposed sales tax aimed at firearms/ammo purchase. (this has not been clarified)
•Mental and physical health waivers to be signed upon applying for a gun license
•Creating new crimes of assault with a firearm that requires no physical action by the lawful possessor
