Mass. Sends Bump Stock Letter to Gun Owners With Looming Deadline

Gun owners in Massachusetts are being warned if they own bump stocks, they have two weeks to get rid of them.
The Massachusetts legislature voted last year to ban them and Feb. 1 is the deadline to comply or face criminal charges.
"This is not a joke," said Jim Wallace, executive director of the Gun Owners Action League. "A violation of this new law is up to life in prison."
Wallace says many bump stock owners may not be familiar with the new law, and a warning from Massachusetts state officials to gun owners — despite being dated Dec. 18 — only went out Friday, more than a month later."Oh, it should have been sent out a long time ago," said Wallace.
Bump stocks made international headlines when a gunman opened fire from a hotel room in Las Vegas back in October. The shooter, Stephen Paddock, used bump stocks to increase the rate of fire.
Lawmakers in Massachusetts then voted to ban them"Gun owners are facing a very important deadline coming up, and the state has not done their due diligence in notifying gun owners," said Wallace.
It's unclear why the letter just went out Friday. It's now being mailed to all gun owners to explain the consequences of not surrendering bump stocks.
There are no exceptions.State Rep. David Linsky, who was behind the bump stock legislation, said
"The ban ... was extremely well publicized," said Massachusetts Rep. David Linsky, who was behind the legislation. "People who still own them are well aware of the changes in the law."
Bump stock owners are supposed to call their local police department or Massachusetts State Police to make arrangements to have them destroyed.

  1. Find one government in the history of humanity that felt a need to document a "RIGHT" for it's ARMED FORCES to possess ARMS.
    Oppressive Governments are ALWAYS banning the People'S RIGHTS to arms.
    The claim that the Founding Fathers wrote the 2nd Amendment to give Our ARMED FORCES a "right" to keep and carry ARMS is S-T-U-P-I-D.
    The only reason for the Second Amendment is to clearly spell-out the GOD GIVEN RIGHT of INDIVIDUALS to keep & bear ARMS.
    The only reason for the BILL(list) of RIGHTS was to codify INDIVIDUALS' GOD GIVEN RIGHTS.
    Has there ever been a government that was not chock full of it's "rights" up to and including declaring itself to be the Lord God Almighty?! (Rome, Egypt, Israel,etc)
    Does the 1st Amendment mean the GOVERNMENT is allowed to give speeches? Try shutting up any Politician. But THEY would LOVE to shut YOU up, hence the FIRST Amendment.
    Anyone who tells you the 2nd Amendment applies to the Army or State Militia, is telling you they think you are STUPID.
    There has NEVER been a government that felt it had to codify it's army's/soldier's "RIGHT" to "Keep and BEAR ARMS" because there has NEVER been a government that refused to allow It's own soldiers to KEEP and BEAR ARMS!
    The Second Amendment was given to the People, like all the other rights in the Bill or Rights. This was confirmed by the SCOTUS in the DC vs Heller decision, where they stated that the "People" in the Second Amendment were the same "People" that are mentioned in the First and Fourth Amendment.
    The 2nd Amendment clearly guarantees the “right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms”, and certainly not “the Militia”.
    Why would "the Militia", a type of army manned by citizen-soldiers as opposed to full-time "regulars", need a constitutional amendment to guarantee they have the right "to keep and bear arms"?
    Is there any specific statement anywhere in the Constitution that the army Congress is empowered to raise has the “right to keep and bear arms"?

    Of course not. ............. That is assumed.
    "The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it." -- Thomas Jefferson

    It is implicit in the nature of all kinds of armies ---- be they militia or regulars, volunteer, conscripted, or mercenary --- to be armed.
    They are all "armed forces".
    They all “bear arms”.
    They all carry guns.
    That is what they do.
    It certainly no more requires an amendment to the Constitution to state that "the Militia" has the RKBA , than a specific statement that the army Congress is empowered to raise may be manned by armed troops.

    "The [U.S.] Constitution is a limitation on the government, not on private individuals ... it does not prescribe the conduct of private individuals, only the conduct of the government ... it is not a charter for government power, but a charter of the citizen's protection against the government." Ayn Rand

  2. You are of course correct that enshrining the Federal Governments right to arms would be stupid, the states rights to raise a militia however, is unique to the US. Also, we knew how far in the woods you were from your essay, there was no need to quote Ayn Rand.

  3. Amen Dr. Dan!!! Everything this government is doing has been unconstitutional since the Civil War.

    "When a law is unjust, man is not right to disobey it, but he is obligated to do so." ~Thomas Jefferson

    Any idiot who actually turns in their bump-stocks should be deported. They are not oath keepers, they are oath breakers. This lawless tyrannical corporation posing as government in my free country has declared war on us. They hate us for our freedom. Only in America is Freedom outlawed. And only in America, does the average American goes a long with it. Sad. I'm glad I don't live in the same fake land mass known as Massachusetts.

    The question I ask is, where are all the patriots at??? Thank guns for the freedom to hate guns libtards!!! Don't like guns? Don't get one. Don't call the cops either, they have guns. HYPOCRITES!!! Guns are dangerous, the only thing more dangerous is NOT having them.

  4. The jew gambling pit called lost vegas, "shooting" was a 1,000% proven HOAX, just like the hilarious boston "bombing" was.

    linsky - a jew. Of course the jews/zionists wish to disarm us. Then they can commit genocide like they did to 65 million + christians in the last century. EVERY [illegal as hell] gun "law" was written by jew traitors.

    A revolution is coming real GD sooooon....
