Very familiar with those tactics. MA has been doing this for decades.
Liberals are very crafty at keeping gun ownership to a minimum. Take a look at liberal Massachusetts:
MA leaves gun licensing up to individual towns .... I.E.: basically, your local police department gives the yea or nay on your getting a firearms license ... FIRST (then the state can reject that, for any reason they deem prudent), be that an F.I.D. card, or class A or B, L.T.C.. So, say you live in a city, where the chief (or mayor) fantasizes about Obama on a daily basis ..... in that case, you'll be lucky to get one at all -- and if you do, it will be heavily restricted: Target only, competition only, or hunting only. Get caught going somewhere that doesn't include the 3 examples I outlined, with your weapon in a locked case separate from your ammo (which is required for anything under a class A), you get an all-expense paid (by taxpayers) vacation ............ to jail. Defend yourself in your home? Jail. Shoot & don't kill the criminal? Jail, after intense interrogation in front of a liberal jury, who has already made up their mind about you, just by your possession of a firearm. There's also a myriad of guns that are illegal in this state, just because of their cost, or construction. Many firearms manufacturers refuse to do business in MA because their laws are redundant & confusing. Only state in the nation like this .. in some cases MA is even worse than NY or CA if you can believe that!
Want your ammo shipped? Illegal. Want brass shipped for reloading? Illegal. Want to buy a gun online? Illegal! Not to mention the $100 license fee/ renewal fee ... on top of nearly another $100 for the mandatory firearms safety course ( which I have no issue with ). It's pretty clear how our state political party sways on the firearm front.
Just think - if the "anointed one" gets elected for a second term, this may be YOUR
state next ...
