Massachusetts Committee To Consider Pro-Gun Legislation

A Massachusetts joint committee will hear two important pieces of pro-gun legislation on Tuesday morning.

Both H. 763 and H. 789 would repeal the current prohibition of the use and possession of firearm suppressors and replace the removed section with a provision that would allow the possession of these devices by law-abiding citizens.  

Suppressors provide numerous benefits to the hunters and sportsmen who choose to use them.  Most importantly, suppressors can decrease muzzle report to hearing-safe levels and reduce shooters’ risk of hearing damage, which can occur when discharging a firearm without proper hearing protection.  Additionally, suppressors help increase accuracy by reducing felt recoil and shot “flinch.”
