That question reveals the idiocy of it.

It's aimed at people who wouldn't follow the law anyway.

According to the FBI statistics over the last 5 years, the AVERAGE number of homicides committed with a rifle is approximately 300 PER YEAR NATIONWIDE - therefore, this is such an "effective law" NOT. Its a shame that a log of good people live there. they should find a way to leave. The place really is ASSachussetts

I'm a non liberal right minded resident of Massachusetts. Almost 47 years. If this law holds I will seriously consider selling and moving

There have been something like 2 murders in MA by rifle in the last few years of statistics. It is irrelevant though, this isn't about guns, it's about figuring out how to bypass due process and legislation in order to attack political opponents.

The problem is in MA, it will most likely be upheld because the courts have been stacked with political appointees and are absurdly unbalanced. It may start with guns, but the same methods, once "accepted" can be used elsewhere and for other means, further diminishing any remaining rule of law and justice.

Not sure what is worse the AG or the media. According to the MA state police 5,000+ people showed up for a rally today. Of course, the media reported "hundreds". Disgusting what a propaganda machine the media has become.

The only reason Mass hasn't turned into a complete cesspool yet is because of people like you and I. Please don't leave. My boss at work started looking at houses in NH yesterday.

Another fine idea by a liberal idiot. Gun sales will go up even higher. Solve the root cause, it's not guns it is inner city ghettos, drug dealers, crazy people and terrorists. Please vote these people out in Nov.

Moving is not the answer. This mindset spreads. We need to make as many people as possible aware of the trampling of our rights.

Help us keep Massachusetts from being the birthplace and deathplace of American Independence.

I was saying that a year, ago, two years ago etc... The problem is now, the goal is to overturn Heller as well as, get a national AWB, like what they are trying to do in MA. They know the supreme court is weak and are now very likely to get two HRC appointees.

NH and other states have been slowly mass-ifying. MA is sadly pretty much lost, getting the remaining pro-civil rights voters out and into other states to re-enforce the base, probably isn't such a bad idea at this point.

I haven't made up my mind for sure, but I don't see wins likely at a state level, and losses at a national level are looking more likely. Part of me thinks screw the state, time to help save the country. After all, the AGs wife is a MA judge, I'm sure shes collaborating with her wife (and others) now to get something that can make it to the SC; this isn't a state-level play, MA has been a successful starting point for many successful nationwide agendas.

They are simply going to enforce an existing law not create a new one. If you want to move out with your guns I know plenty of people that will wave good by and good riddance.

They are not enforcing an existing law, that is the problem. That is their talking point, but if you new anything, you would realize that isn't the case.

They re-defined a well established law after 22 years, rather than properly going through the legislator. Imagine if after 22 years, they said, "oh, we read this zoning law differently than everyone else has for the last 22 years, now you need to tear down your house". That is what this sounds like to anyone that actually understands the subject.

I get from your tone that your a troll through and will believe whatever they tell you. Good for you until they try pulling this crap per some topic you do care about....

It has nothing to do with enforcement, it's all about interpretation. If you want to run your mouth about enforcement, how about the mandatory 18 month jail sentence for illegal firearm possession? Don't see that one being enforced much
