Mass. Gun Owners Plan Rally in Wake of A.G.’s Rogue Gun Ban

If you live in Massachusetts, you may want to think about attending this rally.

If you live in Massachusetts, you may want to think about attending the State House rally on July 23, 2016, at 10:00 a.m.

Editor’s note: The following is an action alert from GOAL, Gun Owners’ Action League, a pro-gun organization based in Massachusetts.

As our members are well aware of by now, Massachusetts Attorney General took unilateral action this past Wednesday to completely redefine the term “Assault Weapon” under Massachusetts’ law. In her move to further her political career with an all out assault on lawful citizens, she has offered a NEW interpretation of the gun laws that has essentially banned the possession, ownership, or transfer of ALL semi-automatic rifles that utilize a detachable magazine. Depending on how the courts look at the NEW interpretations, some handguns and shotguns could be affected as well.

Literally overnight, a single government official has retroactively created hundreds of thousands of felons. One thing gun owners should be very clear about – there is no “grandfathering” under these new rules.

While the AG has “graciously” stated that: “… not be applied to possession, ownership or transfer of an Assault weapon obtained prior to July 20, 2016.” It does not mean that she can’t change her mind tomorrow or that some other entity cannot use it against us, such as local licensing authorities that use the new rules to declare an applicant unsuitable for renewal.

As a result of this chaos, many friendly public officials have offered to file emergency legislation that would offer permanent legal protection for the lawful gun owners who have purchased semi-automatic firearms. While we appreciate these genuine offers to protect our members, GOAL’s message to our government at this time is simple:

We are not asking to be forgiven for crimes we did not commit!

We hope all of our members and gun owners appreciate and support our current position, but you are not at fault! Accepting an offer to protect us would do two things:

1. Admit that we have all committed a crime despite the fact that all of these transfers were approved by the state.

2. It would be recognizing the vast expansion of the Attorney General’s NEW interpretation that will ban the future sale and possession of virtually every semi-automatic gun on the market.

While GOAL continues to confer with leaders all around the country about the best course of action, we need all citizens to attend GOAL’s rally at the State House on Saturday, July 23, 2016, at 10:00 am.

• Bring your family, your friends, and your neighbors.

• Call your local state representative and senator and ask them to join you at the rally.

• Contact your local police chief and police officers and ask them to join you. We have always had their backs, now they need to have ours.

Tell them all: If they can do this to us, they can do it to you!

    Where are the 2AF and the NRA in this? They seem oddly silent.

    While I belive this is totally BS and nothing more then a power grab. I don’t think a protest is going to do anything. What we need to start doing is removing them from there position of office for treason and file criminal charges for not following there oath of office. We are doing nothing more than what the democrat are doing to the criminal system now, slapping them on the wrist and thinking it’s going to get better. This country is in for a world of hurt and I don’t see it getting any better. Do we really think protesting really does anything? It may show your support for something, but don’t think the politicians really care about it.

    Gun control is a zero-sum game: Their plan is to double-down on the law locally; and expand their goofy definition of “assault weapon” until you have no legal guns left. That’s all they’re planning for you.

    These filthy secessionists need to be dealt with like Sherman did to Georgia.

    Mass, Illinois, California – they’re secessionists. They are traitors in a time of war.
