New Proposal Will Force Gun Owners To Store Assault Weapons at Government Authorized Storage Depots

New Proposal Will Force Gun Owners To Store Assault Weapons at Government Authorized Storage Depots

Because you can never have too many laws, regulations and mandates, Massachusetts State Representative David Linsky has filed a new bill that would, among other things, force gun owners to undergo mental health background checks, acquire liability insurance, pay an additional 25% tax on all forms of ammunition, and require firearms categorized as “assault weapons” to be stored outside of their homes and only at government approved storage depots.

“This bill is a comprehensive effort to reduce all types of gun violence – murders, intentional shootings, accidental shootings and suicides. There is not one solution to reducing gun violence – we can’t eliminate it – but there are a lot of common-sense steps that we can take to significantly reduce the everyday tragedy of gun violence and deaths,” said Linsky.

“I have spoken with hundreds of people over the past few weeks in developing this legislation – victims, police officers, criminologists, physicians, and yes – gun owners and sportsmen,” stated Linsky. “There are a lot of good ideas out there. We should all have one goal – reducing gun violence and trying to keep more tragedies from happening.”

Provisions in the bill include:

Having one standard of the issuance of all gun licenses, giving local police chiefs the ability to evaluate all aspects of an application for a gun license.

Requires proof of liability insurance for possession of a firearm, rifle or shotgun.

Requires that all large capacity weapons and grandfathered assault weapons must be stored at gun clubs or target ranges.

Requires live shooting as part of the curriculum for a basic firearms safety course; this is not a current requirement.

Requires all applicants for gun licenses and FID cards to sign a waiver of mental health records for review to be destroyed after decision.

Imposes 25% sales tax on ammunition, firearms, shotguns, and rifles; dedicates funds towards firearms licensing, police training, mental health services, and victim’s services.

Brings Massachusetts into compliance with the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

Limits gun buyers to one firearm purchase per month.

The only thing I somewhat agree with is:

"Requires live shooting as part of the curriculum for a basic firearms safety course; this is not a current requirement," However I do not believe it should be a govt decree, I think gun dealers should personally require it on their own free will, and they should only provide the service for first time gun owners, or anyone wanting to participate.

Gun dealers should also offer "live shooting for non-gun owners" to familiarize them with firearms so they are not so afraid of them. A lot of people who are in favor of gun bans are the ones who have never handled one or fired one<=== I assume by the way they talk about their position.

"government approved storage depots" ... rofl

Silly people, we're not ~confiscating~ your guns. You just can't have the ones with you at home that we don't want you to have, and you have to let our approved minions keep them for you.

...because we know what's best for you. *wink*

"And We'll Charge You"

...a small $20 "administrative fee" every time you come by to access your firearm to shoot or to clean. (On top of the $30 monthly storage fee we'll be charging for our armory services).

Sad but this is forcing nullification and states rights

We can still turn this into a win by holding the line in our states.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

Just more evidence

to show that it isn't really about guns. It's about government control of our lives through forced "healthcare". In the end you will keep your guns as long as you submit to the medical industry.

I said long ago that Obamacare and the mandate were just the beginning. We are now seeing more forced submission to the healthcare industry. And just as I said, it wouldn't be limited to physical health either. The thing about mental "healthcare" is that you don,t have to go to the doctor to be diagnosed with mental problems. In the end not going to the doctor will be reason for mental disorder diagnosis. They will just profile you from afar and make there decision.

Fighting with guns for the sake of guns is idiocy. The real fight is for our right to our own selves and that is being taken away from us continually with little more than a whimper of objection.

The FIRST person

to receive a psychological evaluation should be the foreigner that is sitting in the white house. A mentally unstable person sitting there has his finger on the button for global thermonuclear war. He can kill much more than 20 children!

I am not

into mental health, but if Obama where to be evaluated I believe he would be labeled this: http://www.mcafee.cc/Bin/sb.html

Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

fine.

Thanks for the heads-up, e.

Good to know even if these "proposals" are just trial balloons to see how WE REACT. (and we shall pre-emptively REACT LOUDLY :-)

Your Welcome ytc!
