GUN OWNERS ACTION LEAGUE (GOAL) HOLDS 2ND AMENDMENT RALLY AT STATE HOUSE AGAINST SPEAKER’S GUN CONTROL BILL



The Gun Owners Action League of Massachusetts (GOAL) today held a pro 2ndAmendment rally and lobby day at the Massachusetts State House. The State House Park Rangers at between 300-400 attendees estimated the attendance at the rally. The rally and lobby day was held to oppose Speaker DeLeo’s gun control bill, as originally drafted, H. 4121.

“We are here today to demonstrate that lawful gun owners are angry about legislation that would only seek to further persecute them,” Jim Wallace, Executive Director of GOAL. “We are disappointed that this legislation is proposing nothing that would stop criminals from perpetrating gun crime. We’re here to tell the Legislature to put a face on the opposition to the bill.

Wallace was joined by many lawmakers to rally the crowd including:

· Sen. Michael Moore
· Rep. Matt Beaton
· Rep. Shaunna O’Connell
· Rep. George Peterson
· Rep. Marc Lombardo
· Rep. Leah Cole
· Rep. Nick Boldyga
· Rep. Todd Smola
· Rep. Keiko Orrall
· Rep. Geoff Diehl
· Rep. Steve Howitt
· Rep. Angelo D’Emelia
· Rep. Susan Gifford
· Rep. Peter Durant


Currently, the Speaker’s gun control bill, H. 4121, is before the House Ways and Means Committee after being reported out of the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security by a 7-6-3 vote last week.
