Dedicated to Your Second Amendment Rights
I have been told that there are enough people in Massachusetts that possess a firearms license that we could elect all the candidates we choose! We need to register to vote, if not already, and more importantly we need to get out and VOTE for ourchoices!! Think about that!!!

Second Amendment Excerpts and Quotes
I am a Second Amendment advocate. Citizens have the right to Keep and Bear Arms under the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution; and also under Article XVII of the Massachusetts State Constitution. It is a clear civil right worth fighting for. Licensed gun owners are lawful gun owners and good people. In large part, they have no criminal record, or only very minor offenses. Licensed gun owners, as a category, commit the least amount of crimes in Massachusetts than any other category, including the clergy. Licensed gun owners do not commit crimes, because they know that on the day they do, no matter what their crime is, they will lose their LTC or their FID, probably forever. In Massachusetts, the right to “Keep and Bear Arms” is the only constitutional right that you need a “license” issued at the discretion of the government, in order to exercise it. Public Safety is my main concern. I will enforce keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous people, who use guns to commit their crimes; based on their record of criminal convictions. Obviously, people suffering from insanity cannot have access to guns. Public Safety is at the top of my priorities. We must prevent access to guns for those who suffer severe mental health issues which prevent them from forming rational thought or making sound judgment. Psychiatric evaluation to be applied according to strict guidelines, void of political view. I have a problem with licensing authorities failing to grant an LTC or an FID to an otherwise suitable applicant solely based on discretionary or subjective reasoning, as opposed to a felonious record of convictions, containing gun violence. Massachusetts is a "May" state, as opposed to a "Shall" state, or a "Constitutional Carry" state. I am of the conviction that "May" is an infringement of the Second Amendment. "May" gives the licensing authority the discretion to deny, in which an appeal is more often than not futile. We can do better than this in Massachusetts. The right to "Keep and Bear Arms" is God-given, and it should be difficult for the government to deny it. Let's be clear, this current AG is going after us, to take the guns from lawful gun owners; this is her plan to get “guns off the street”. Think of what this means, she says that you, the lawful gun owners, are the problem for illegal guns being on the streets. Licensed gun owners do not commit crimes. Thugs get their guns on the black market, and not from our licensed gun shops. Licensed gun owners have their guns properly stored and accounted for. Their guns are not on the streets committing crimes. When a left wing politician does not trust her constituents with their constitutional rights, this is a set-up for an obvious gun grab, and you have to question their motives. Why don’t they trust the American people? History has shown that all socialists regimes begin their reign with a gun grab. There is an agenda by this current AG to disarm the citizens of Massachusetts. We have had our Massachusetts State Constitution since 1780, the U.S. Constitution since 1787, and the U.S. Bill of Rights since 1791; and the God-given Right to Keep and Bear Arms since prior to 1620. You will not have to sue me in order to exercise your “God-given Rights”, protected by the Constitution, as the Constitution states them. Your rights, and your guns, are safe with me.
