An Act Relative to Previously Licensed Gun Owners
This legislation has been filed for the 190th General Court by Rep. Susannah Whipps (HD.2343)
In 1998 the MA legislature passed one of the most oppressive anti-civil rights laws in modern history, nearly one million previously licensed gun owners had their Second Amendment civil rights stripped away. This was predominately done by retroactively applying minor misdemeanors to the prohibited person status. This bill would simply allow citizens to obtain firearm licenses they previously held (essentially grandfathering) providing they have not committed any prohibiting acts since the passage of the law.
