Massachusetts State Rep. David P. Linsky and Barack Obama

Massachusetts State Representative David Linsky has filed a new bill that would force gun owners to undergo mental health background checks, pay an additional 25% tax on all forms of ammunition, and require firearms categorized as “assault weapons” to be stored outside of their homes at government approved sites.
Natick Patch reported, via Black Listed News:

“This bill is a comprehensive effort to reduce all types of gun violence – murders, intentional shootings, accidental shootings and suicides.  There is not one solution to reducing gun violence – we can’t eliminate it – but there are a lot of common-sense steps that we can take to significantly reduce the everyday tragedy of gun violence and deaths,” said Linsky…

…“I have spoken with hundreds of people over the past few weeks in developing this legislation – victims, police officers, criminologists, physicians, and yes – gun owners and sportsmen,” stated Linsky. “There are a lot of good ideas out there. We should all have one goal – reducing gun violence and trying to keep more tragedies from happening.”

Provisions in the bill include:

  • Having one standard of the issuance of all gun licenses, giving local police chiefs the ability to evaluate all aspects of an application for a gun license.
  • Requires proof of liability insurance for possession of a firearm, rifle or shotgun.
  • Requires that all large capacity weapons and grandfathered assault weapons must be stored at gun clubs or target ranges.
  • Requires live shooting as part of the curriculum for a basic firearms safety course; this is not a current requirement.
  • Requires all applicants for gun licenses and FID cards to sign a waiver of mental health records for review to be destroyed after decision.
  • Imposes 25% sales tax on ammunition, firearms, shotguns, and rifles; dedicates funds towards firearms licensing, police training, mental health services, and victim’s services.
  •  Brings Massachusetts into compliance with the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).
  • Limits gun buyers to one firearm purchase per month.

That way if someone breaks in your house, all you have to do is run down to the local gun storage facility to get your guns.
It makes perfect sense.

  1. Sounds like confiscation to me – and making you pay to have your guns confiscated to boot! What part of “shall make no law” do they not understand?

  2. Good luck with that, di(khead!

  3. Isn’t Traitor in Chief Government too oppressive towards American citizens.

  4. They can drop my XM-15 at the government approved depot on the way to the morgue with my body and the bodies of some of the guys who came to take.

  5. I propose a bill that would require all those running for elected office to undergo mental health background checks, criminal backgrounds checks, pay an additional 25% tax on all forms of campaign contributions from any source.

    This bill is a comprehensive effort to stop all criminal or mental health issues from affecting the American people from those who MAKE THE LAW.

    We the people delegated certain enumerated powers to our elected officials and the foremost of them is to PROTECT our natural rights we specifically mentioned in our founding documents.

    Those MAKING law should certainly be even more examined than an otherwise law abiding citizen. See Ray Nagin as the latest example. See Al Gore as a late example.
    If these people had to go through the same checks many would never be elected or re-elected.
    Example of a mental health background check for elected officials.
    Elected officials are not even barred from running for office if they are confined to a mental hospital ward for 6 months. During the election. And getting re-elected in his hospital bed.

    Anything firearm owners or buyers must go through, elected officials must go through. We have a specific right to keep and bear arms, we do not have the specific right to be an elected official.

  6. It really is just about time to split the US into (2) seperate countries or have another civil war.
    The Democrats are certifiably insane.

  7. This bill is just confiscation spelled another way.

  8. And who are all these people who would need to undergo mental health examinations, White conservative Christian’s? I thought liberals want to come up with “common sense” solutions to gun violence? This sounds more like “stupid” solutions. There’s no common sense to any of these solutions, and besides that there are no common sense solutions that would change the attitudes and mindsets of a whole race of people. And I’m talking about the race of people who commit 97% of all crimes in the U.S. in any year, and that is the Black race. And illegal Mexican’s are catching up with those numbers very fast with the continued open borders policy of our current government. And I mean current government because it’s not going to last indefinately and forever because even the Communist Party didn’t last forever in Russia. As time moves on people change from being ignorant to informed and when that happens governments topple from demands made on them that the government cannot hold back indefinately. Eventually freedom, which is a God given intention, cannot be resisted by tyrants who even themselves change. It may not seem likely that Obama would ever change but he will, he’ll have to.

  9. This is typical for Democratic proposals. Shoot for the moon, settle for your wallet. Next week they will shoot for the moon again, settle for your car. Repeat until they own everything you once owned.

  10. “giving local police chiefs the ability to evaluate all aspects of an application for a gun license.”

    No government can delegate to any other entity of government the power to unilaterally decide a natural right on a case by case basis. The RTKB is not within the power of those who we have not delegated that power to.

  11. That’s exactly how the British handled confiscation.

  12. “this bill is a comprehensive to reduce all types of gun violence,” it is like hell! it another attempt to increase the power that the politicans have over the american people and take more of their income, the two favorite practices of the modern american politican.

    About Demons going to be unleashed on Earth…I not sure about that.

  14. Of course when you listen to dem pundits and the MSM, they say no way would they ever want to confiscate guns. They just work their way there incrementaly, like this dem–what a bunch of liars–

    Who know how Mass will react to this, but I’d love to see dems try it in the whole country.

    So gun permit records are public knowledge, and major news outlets are unable to find any for Nancy Lanza. Not even for the AR-15 rifle? The police are saying that those guns were registered to her and she had permits for them, but apparently the public records themselves are not supporting their theories.

  16. Why in God’s name anyone would want to live in a state like that is beyond me. The first politician who suggested something like that in AR would be ridden out of town on a rail.

  17. bah humbug.

  18. “Force”?

    Nah, not even “persuade”. Nothing like this is going to happen, period — despite all the jaw-boning and gum-flapping Our Moral Superiors and their MFMSM toadies can muster.

    You want ‘em, buster, you’re gonna have to come here personally & try to TAKE ‘em from me. (And ya might wanna make sure your Health Insurance card is in your wallet, just-in-case.)

    Fool.
