ILA | Massachusetts: Anti-gun legislation must be heard by committee

Tomorrow January 25and, the Joint Commission on the Judiciary will hold a public hearing on two anti-gun bills.

S.2607 and H.4303 amend Massachusetts’ ban on so-called “assault weapons” by prohibiting the manufacture of such firearms, with very limited exceptions. This legislation is a direct attack on the Second Amendment and the fundamental rights of law-abiding citizens of Massachusetts.

A pair of Justice Department-funded studies of the federal “assault weapons” ban from 1994 to 2004 found that the ban was ineffective because “assault weapons” are rarely used to commit crimes. violent crimes. This bill is misguided, will not improve public safety and will do nothing to prevent criminals who are already prohibited from owning a firearm from obtaining one. This is an arbitrary ban that is simply a sign of anti-gun virtue.
