    A Special Investigation by Gun Owners' Action League on Regulatory Fraud - A Calculated Deception Against the People of the Commonwealth. An Investigation into the Massachusetts Attorney General's Regulations on Handguns (940 CMR 16.00)

    This is a very long, in depth write up on how the Massachusetts AG conspired to "regulate" so-called cheap "Saturday Night Special" using consumer protection as a guise to attempt to ban all handguns being sold in that state. While that goal has not be achieved, the regulations are so vague, and no detailed list of what handguns do or do not meet requirements has been published, that several gun manufacturers will not sell their handguns to citizens or even law enforcement in Massachusetts. The problem is worse than what has happened in California, because the AG's "solution" is to have a manufacturer first sell a gun, THEN the AG will determine if they broke the law.

    This is also a case study in how Massachusetts attempted to foist its regulations nationally onto all handgun manufacturers.

    Vague, trumped up regulations like this are the dream of anti-gunners.

    If the politics of this kind of regulatory deception interest you, click the link. It is lengthy and detailed, so those with attention deficit disorder should skip it.

    Also note this has NOTHING to do with Romney. This came about long before he was on the scene, so there is no way this can be considered Romney bashing. This is simply meant to give insight and education in how anti-gun government officials come up with laws and regulations to support a pre-conceived outcome not based on any scientific criteria.

    OMG, I wonder what that garbage cost the law abiding tax paying citizens of Massachusetts?

    Sad part is- bad guys don't care about the states gun control laws.
