Gov. Patrick and Rep. Linskey (Newton) have proposed sweeping changes to Mass gun law amounting to a virtual repeal of the 2nd Amendment. If passed, here's what your elected officials have in store for you:

10 round magazines loaded with more than 7 rounds, punishable by more than two years in jail.
Magazines containing more than 10 rounds, punishable by up to 10 years in jail.
Potential confiscation of lawfully purchased long guns and high capacity magazines (greater than 10 round capacity).
A complete ban on semi-automatic rifles with certain cosmetic features. (AR type rifles)
Up to 2 ½ years in jail for receiving more than 1 gun or magazine in a 30-day period.
Mandatory large capacity guns storage at gun clubs instead of in home.
Lawful private sales recorded on FA-10 forms will no longer be allowed.
Ban "high power" ammunition. (there's been no definition provided as to what that is)
Expanding local licensing authorities discretion to deny or restrict licenses to all guns including FID cards.
Mandatory insurance for all firearms owners. (see link for more info)
New proposed sales tax aimed at firearms/ammo purchase. (this has not been clarified)
Mental and physical health waivers to be signed upon applying for a gun license

GOAL Legislation From 1982 Now Paying Dividends

GOAL has been protecting Massachusetts gun owners for a long time. In 1982 we ensured that the names and addresses of gun owners will never be public information.

The commissioner of the department of criminal justice information services, the department of criminal justice information services and its agents, servants, and attorneys including the keeper of the records of the firearms records bureau of said department, or any licensing authority, as defined by chapter one hundred and forty shall not disclose any records divulging or tending to divulge the names and addresses of persons who own or possess firearms, rifles, shotguns, machine guns and ammunition therefore, as defined in said chapter one hundred and forty and names and addresses of persons licensed to carry and/or possess the same to any person, firm, corporation, entity or agency except criminal justice agencies as defined in chapter six and except to the extent such information relates solely to the person making the request and is necessary to the official interests of the entity making the request.
