The Massachusetts Joint Committee On Public Safety & Homeland Security held a public hearing yesterday regarding many Second Amendment related bills. As you can imagine there was a lot of testimony on both sides of the issue.
During the testimony a MA State Representative from Cambridge, MA provided chilling testimony that is a glaring example of the disrespect that many on her side of the aisle, within the MA legislature has for the Second Amendment.
For this reason, GOAL has filed H.1296, An Act Relative To Constitutional Rights. This bill will force elected officials in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to recognize that the Second Amendment is a civil right equal to all civil rights.
For more on all of this, please see our news/blog page here.
We started discussing H.3081, An Act Establishing Extreme Risk Protective Orders on Episode 17, "bad legislation and legal weed".
Since that time, the legislation has gained momentum in the halls of the State House, so we wanted to revisit it and point out the many issues presented by this bill.
For more info, you can also see our blog, here.

Thank you everyone for listening and supporting GOAL!
GOAL has been working on two new bills, which will enable people to choose their best means of self defense and get government out of the way.
We made great strides towards that in 2014 when we deregulated the sale of self defense sprays, and are now working towards doing the same with electronic devices.
These products are available over the counter in the majority of the country and we are working towards getting MA into the light regarding self defense choice.
We hope you enjoy!
