TIME SENSITIVE: Contact Your MA Legislator Now

The MA joint committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security is deciding by Feb 5th which bills to advance to a vote in the MA House and Senate. We have been advocating for three specific bills.
H. 2045, An Act Relative to Crime Data Reporting and Analysis. This would help us better understand crime guns to help identify ways to stop the trafficking of these weapons and their use in Massachusetts.

 

H. 2091: An Act Requiring Live Fire Practice For A Firearm’s License to require applicants for firearms licenses to have experience shooting a firearm before they’re allowed to carry one, helping to ensure Massachusetts gun owners are responsible ones.

H.3843: An Act Relative to Ghost Guns, which will prohibit untraceable and undetectable guns. This bill will stop people who cannot legally purchase or possess guns from circumventing state and federal laws, such as background checks and waiting periods, while also undermining the efforts of law enforcement.
