H.1567 Action Alert
Please Call Your State Representative Today
With just a few days left in the formal legislative session the Joint Committee on Public Safety released H.1567 with a favorable report. H.1567 "An Act Relative to the Right to Carry Firearms" was filed by Rep. George Peterson on behalf of Gun Owners' Action League at the beginning of the current legislative session, and is now with the House Committee on Ways & Means.This is a bill aimed at helping Massachusetts join the vast majority of US states in requiring "shall issue" concealed carry permits. We would join the 41 other states that issue permits upon successful completion of all requirements rather than leaving the permitting process to the discretion of a designated authority. No longer would an upstanding citizen be denied their constitutionally enumerated right to keep and bear arms simply because the Chief of Police (or their designee) didn't like the cut of their jib.
IOW, no more TJICs.
That is all.
Oh, and also, GOAL's website is where I found this awesome graphic:
