im with you on the weed laws being stupid, I just dont see how owning guns is safer than weed. some people say "just cause you have a gun dosent mean your going to use it" true. but if you do use it, it has 1 purpose. to destroy.

I think the law should be "if you own more than 10 guns, get rid of most of them"
Which is why you live in Canada. In America we believe in inalienable, natural rights. The second amendment is a wonderful thing and I will own as many guns as I want to. I would expect nothing less from a big government, progressive utopia like Massachusetts.
My question is... who decides what "most of them" is? How many is most of them? Which ones can I keep? The only people effected by gun laws are law abiding citizens. Criminals break laws (hence the term criminal).
lol i live in Canada because I was born here. If i was born in the states I might have a different view, but bad education systems do that to people...
I don't know how a gun is a "natural right" i didn't know guns grew on trees.

The next thing they'll want is 24/7 monitoring of your gun safe via computers and live video. And you'll have to "request" to have your gun safe opened remotely by the police, but only if it's on a preapproved appointment.
What sounds insane today, will become legislation tomorrow. What's legislation today, sounded insane yesterday.

Well thankfully here in the US it is our right to own as many firearms as we please. As per our constitution 2nd amendment you have the right to bear arms...in the plural and no where in there does it say you can bear arms if you have permits or register them or any limitations in fact it doesn't even say those with criminal records can't own them. So in my opinion this new law breeches the rights of all US citizens. Criminals will always have guns laws or no laws but for law abiding people it's not lookin so good. If you live in Mass. I guess you better stock up and get grandfathered in!
