Longmeadow, MA voters reject gun control measures

Congrats to the voters who rejected these onerous measures, which are apparently even more restrictive than Massachusetts state law.

Which begs the question - why are localities allowed to impose stricter laws than the other residents of the state live under?

Quote:
Three laws related to gun control were up for a vote. The first law would impose a $300 fine on anyone who possesses a firearm, rifle, or shotgun in town-owned buildings or recreational properties.

The second required that gun owners provide the police department with descriptions of each firearm they own with serial number, make, model, and caliber.

The final law would have banned "assault weapons"and "large capacity" feeding devices.

Turn out was high for voters, who rejected all three measures.

Because Massachusetts does not have a state preemption law.
