As usual, gun-grabbing Democrats are taking aim at the wrong target. Instead of addressing crime, Massachusetts Democrats in the state House of Representatives just approved an overreaching gun bill that would severely undermine lawful gun owners’ ability to carry weapons and defend themselves. A coalition of state police chiefs and others emphatically condemned the bill.
The Epoch Times reported on Oct. 23 that the anti-Second Amendment legislation passed the Massachusetts House in a 120-38 vote on Oct. 18. Under the bill, citizens would not be allowed to carry firearms into others’ homes without consent and major gun components would have to have serial numbers registered with the state. The bill also expands Massachusetts’ “red flag” law for permitting judges to suspend a person’s firearms license if he’s considered a risk for “harming others.” In the current political climate, when peaceful pro-lifers, concerned parents, MAGA, and traditional Catholics are considered threats or “domestic terrorists,” that could get subjective really fast.
In fact, as the Gun Owners’ Action League and state Rep. Peter Durant (R-6th Worcester district) noted, the bill will not stop crime; it will merely target law-abiding citizens trying to protect themselves.
