Last year the legislature passed laws concerning firearms etc., and one was about active duty military people, they will no longer be required to take a safety course in order to apply for their gun license. I think it is a nice ‘gesture’, (or is it?) in recognition of our service men and women. But I also look at it another way, just because you no longer need the course, does that mean magically ‘somehow’ you will know what your legal responsibilities are and what the gun law ‘do’s and don’ts’ are?
An infraction of any gun law(s) usually means a felony count against you! In my opinion this is likely setting up our service people up for failure. Are politicians looking at this as a ‘we give you the LTC with one hand and take it away with the other’ ploy?
I am a pessimist when it comes to politicians and their motives for doing anything, (usually self serving motives) in this anti gun state. So, if anyone you know is active duty and would like a gun license in Ma. please refer them to me, I will not charge them a cent, what I will do is instruct them to read certain article’s that I have written and posted on my Gun Sense page so that they will not be uninformed about what they MUST know if they do not want a felony count against them in the future and loss of gun rights for life, fair enough? Please pass this on.
