• GOAL DEBATES GROSSMAN;

    INVITES ALL GUBERNATORIAL CANDIDATES TO GUN ROUNDTABLE

     

    BOSTON – Today, Jim Wallace of GOAL, on the steps of the Massachusetts State House, debated gubernatorial candidate Steve Grossman on gun policy. Wallace emphasized the plight of law-abiding gun owners who feel persecuted under the current Massachusetts laws and the abject failure of the current laws to reduce crime.

    Article 58 would change current state law for firing ranges on private property, making a minimum distance of 500 feet from any dwelling law, and effectively shutting down an existing range on private property within town limits. (see background info below)

     

    Northborough residents who are registered voters need to attend the Annual Town Meeting which runs for 3 nights beginning on April 28th, please vote against Article 58.

  • It is GOAL’s firm belief that any review of the Massachusetts gun laws must begin by acknowledging that the Commonwealth’s gun laws have been an abject failure. Since the passage of the 1998 gun control laws, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health Injury Surveillance Program (ISP) reports that gun crime has drastically increased in the Commonwealth. In the same time period, licensed gun owners have been decreased by over 80%. In the absence of using these facts as a base, the report as a whole is made suspect regardless of whether we agree with parts or not. Unfortunately, the Committee chose to ignore these facts and instead relied on flawed testimony that attempts to paint the Commonwealth’s laws in a positive light.

  • The state of Massachusetts continues to abuse citizens who attempt to follow the law
    15 years of failure, lack of planning and inaction are beginning to take a toll. Over the course of the last 18 + months the phone lines, e-mails and mailman have continued to bring news to the GOAL office of delay after delay affecting gun owners who try to follow the law by applying for a license to lawfully own firearms in Massachusetts. This license is known as an LTC (License to Carry) or an FID (Firearms Identification Card). For those that don’t know it is illegal to possess a firearm in Massachusetts without one of the two and the LTC “A” license is needed to lawfully carry a concealed handgun in MA.
