Massachusetts Legislature Launching a Gun Law "Listening Tour"
Below are some talking points and reports you may wish to use when speaking before the panel.
Talking Points for the Legislative Listening Tour on Massachusetts Gun Laws
Crime – where is the success
· During the last legislative session, GOAL filed a so-called ghost gun bill through Rep. Michael Soter – H.2527 “An Act relative to criminal manufacture and possession of certain weapons” The bill took a rational and realistic approach and severely punishes only the criminals/prohibited persons who illegally manufacture and traffic guns for illicit activities. It was the only ghost gun bill that was released favorably by the Committee on Public Safety but was never acted on by the legislature. If this is such an important issue, then why didn’t the legislature pass the bill into law?
