Getting right back to work after Thanksgiving, the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security has scheduled a Gun Day hearing session. Expect a long day on Tuesday, November 28, starting at 11:00 a.m. in Gardner Auditorium, the committee schedule lists over fifty (50) pro- and anti-gun bills of serious concern to sportsmen.
The most important pro-sportsman bill to be heard is H.2391. This bill prohibits counties, municipalities, townships, or other community entities in the Commonwealth from enacting, passing, or enforcing any law, ordinance, or regulation concerning the lawful ownership, use, possession, transfer, purchase, receipt, or transportation of weapons, antique weapons, ammunition, or ammunition components, except as expressly provided by state law.
The list of anti-sportsmen bills is long. There are bills related to raising the age of possession of firearms (H.2369), requiring liability insurance for gun ownership (H.2364), “universal” background checks (H.2367), updating gun control laws (S.1508) and the assault weapon ban (H.2358), along with several other bills that will only crater firearms freedom and impact every sportsman in the state.
Please use the Take Action buttons below to contact the Senate and House members of the Joint Committee, asking them to SUPPORT the bills to protect sportsmen and OPPOSE the bills adding additional restrictions to gun ownership, turning the law-abiding into criminals.
Please make sure you use both take action buttons to ensure both the Senate and House committee members hear from you.

The Bay State will need all sportsmen and gun owners to work together to support its hunting heritage and traditions. Don’t forget to share this important alert with your family, friends, and fellow sportsmen, urging them to email the committee to support good bills but also oppose bills that will add “feel good” restrictions, turning the law-abiding into criminals.
