National Association for Gun Rights Issues Travel Advisory for State of Massachusetts

Jul 11, 2023

Boston, MA – The National Association for Gun Rights has issued a Travel Advisory for gun owners to and within Massachusetts in response to the State Legislature’s 140 page bill, House Docket 4420. HD 4420 is a comprehensive gun control bill that would ostensibly ban more guns than any current law in the United States.

These are some of the provisions contained in the bill:

* Updates the state definition of “Assault-style firearm” to ban almost all semiautomatic firearms.
* Bans concealed carry of firearms at private businesses unless expressly permitted.
* Retroactive compulsory registration of all firearms.
* Registration of all firearms magazines/feeding devices, no grandfathering.
* Requires all feeding devices/magazines to have a serial number.
* Ban for anyone under age 21 from buying or carrying a semi-automatic shotgun or rifle.
* Lays out compulsory “safe storage” requirements.
* Changes the definition of firearm to include stun guns.
* Puts more regulations on firearms dealers.

“This is probably the biggest and worst package of gun control regulation I have ever seen, and that is saying a lot. A ban on almost all guns, registration of every gun and magazine in the state (old and new) and a de facto ban on firearms carry are in the bill. Massachusetts just secured top position as the most hostile state in the union to gun owners,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights. “That is why NAGR is issuing a Travel Advisory for all gun owners within the state or thinking of traveling to the state.”

“Your gun rights and your freedom are at serious risk in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. If you live there you might want to pack your bags and if you are thinking of traveling there, you need to reconsider,” said Brown.

NAGR is encouraging its members to contact members of the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security to express their opposition to HD 4420.

The National Association for Gun Rights’ legal arm, the National Foundation for Gun Rights filed a lawsuit (Capen v. Healey) in September of 2022, challenging Massachusetts’s current ban on “assault weapons” and standard-capacity magazines.

The NAGR lawsuit argues the Massachusetts Assault Weapons Ban violates the 2022 Supreme Court decision handed down in the NYSRPA V. Bruen case, which stated gun control laws must find their justification in the history, text, and tradition of the Second Amendment.

         The National Association for Gun Rights is the nation’s largest “no compromise” pro-gun organization, with 4.5 million members nationwide.
