Post Massachusetts: Gun Control Bill Passes Senate

Today, with a vote of 38-0, the Massachusetts state Senate passed a version of the Amendment 1 legislation*with less infringements than what*was passed yesterday in the House. *The original Amendment 1 attached to House Bill 3951 would ban “any device which attaches to a [firearm]…that is designed to increase the rate of discharge” of a firearm with a very broad and overreaching definition. *For example, it would have banned firearm modifications such as match grade triggers, muzzle brakes, and ergonomic changes that are commonly done by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability. *The version of this Amendment passed by the senate has a much narrower definition of these devices to only include “bump stocks” and “trigger cranks. *In addition, it does not ban these devices, but puts them under Section 121, Chapter 140 of the Commonwealth general laws by amending the definition of “machine gun.”
