Sadly, it'll mean no shipments of formerly MA-compliant so-called 'assault weapons' to MA gun dealers or Internet buyers -- and no sales of such in MA LGS's.

The choices of law-abiding MA citizens just became more limited due to the actions of criminals. Unfortunate.

There is already a petition on the Governor's desk for an immediate overturn. The 5,000 necessary signatures didn't take more than a few hours to obtain.

They sell guns without a flash suppressor or folding or telescoping stock, for example, small tweaks that do nothing to limit the lethalness of the weapon.
Now wait a minute!

:banghead:

If removing them does nothing to "limit the lethalness" then how the frickety-do-dah-day does ADDING them "increase the lethalness"?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??????

If a gun's operating system is essentially the same as that of a banned weapon, ...
"Operating system"? These aren't phased plasma rifles. Or by "operating system" do they mean "it shoots bullets by igniting gun powder"?

... or if the gun has components that are interchangeable with those of a banned weapon, ...
What, like bullets? Magazines? Barrel nuts? Would a recoil spring count? Common fasteners?

... it's a "copy" or "duplicate," and it is illegal.

Several of you are under the misunderstanding that logic and facts play any role whatsoever when a lawyer who is in a position of authority, like an AG, wants something to be so. Carry on.

Good questions, but if the government (acting on the wishes of the people) want to ban assault weapons, it's legit to ban the near-copies that have the same major components, 95% or more parts interchangeability, same ammo, same magazines, same scary tactical look that makes sissy [male] journalists leak a little pee in their underwear from fright when they shoot it at the range...

The question is are the people of Massachusetts going to do anything about it? Are they going to throw these politicians out on the street or are they going to accept this as being for the good and safety of the people? And, are the firearm owners going to comply? Is this enforceable? In other words, does MA require the registration of firearms so they will know (assuming you comply) that your purchasing a non-compliant weapon out of state to circumvent the law? Does it apply to out-of-state purchases when you personally transport the firearm back to MA?

Ha, ha, ha! You crack me up!

:rotfl2:

These "people of Massachusetts" are not their New England ancestors who surrounded Boston with 15,000 armed men who were not army regulars, at a time when Congress was still making peace overtures to the King and wished to reconcile (almost a year before even the Declaration of Independence).

Some of them may be related, but these are NOT the same people.

Are they going to do anything about it? LOL! I can't stop laughing!

If those 5,000 people would show up around the Capitol carrying newly illegal AR15s openly, demanding the law be changed, I bet it would get changed.

There are not 5,000 people willing to do so.

In MA? Good luck. More likely the National Guard would be called out (which would immediately reduce the crowd to about 500 retired guys).

As long as you sit back and let government erode your rights away, they will do so.

They are just experiencing DUMBOCRACY, or in correct spelling, DEMOCRACY.

According to some, even on this very website, there are those who get so brainwashed by media and the like that they truly believe that if 51 percent to 99.999 percent of a population want to take away your God-given natural rights such as self-defense then it is ok to do so. That is what is going on here.

We are not a Republic anymore where the government is there to defend your natural, God-given rights. No we are now a Democracy, where the Mob Rules, and if they want to take away your rights, that is exactly what they are going to do.

We don't live in a Republic anymore. This is Democracy in action. Hope we all like it.

Funny, a few years ago I had to correct one of my children's social studies tests and explain to the teacher that my child was correct. She marked him off when he wrote that we live in a Constitutional Republic - she wrote in "Democracy" as her correction. She argued with me, but in the end I persuaded her that she was an idiot....err...wrong.

There isn't one person, and I mean one person willing to do so here in Georgia, much less MA. Ok, well maybe one, but certainly not two or three. Nothing of a substantial number.

Who wants to be shot and killed or in prison for the rest of your life while your life is over, no job, your wife re-marries, you never see your kids, ect, ect, ect?

Never going to happen.
