Massachusetts: Gun Control Bills Go to Conference Committee

by WOA Admin October 27, 2017

Instead of concurring on the Senate version from two weeks ago, yesterday during informal session, the Massachusetts House of Representatives passed gun control language identical to that which was previously passed as part of House Bill 3979, a new appropriations measure.  This is the same overreaching language that was previously passed by the House which would ban modifications commonly made to firearms by law-abiding citizens.  However late last night, the Senate rejected the proposal by passing their original language narrowly targeting bump fire stocks and crank triggers as part of Senate Bill 2194, another appropriations measure.  Because of the dispute between the two chambers regarding which version to adopt, a conference committee was appointed today to work out the differences between the two measures.  Please contact your state Senator, Representative, and the committee members today and urge them to oppose this legislation!
