Under cover of darkness and using legislative parlor tricks, the Massachusetts legislature passed an extreme anti-gun bill during a late night session that was signed by the Acting Governor the next morning.
Slipped into the crevices of an appropriations bill was a ban on "any device that increases the rate of fire achievable with a weapon by using energy from the recoil to generate a reciprocating action that facilitates repeated activation of the trigger."
The goal of the legislation was to ban bump stocks. However, the measure is so vague that a wide range of accessories could be banned including after market triggers and springs.
The bill was rammed through with very little debate and almost no opportunity for public input.
FPC will continue to push back against undue burdens and far reaching bans in Massachusetts and around the country. But we can't do it without your help.
