NRA Fights Town Aiming To Ban Guns And Restrict Carry

posted on April 28, 2016

The Massachusetts town of Longmeadow is trying to tighten gun-control legislation, and, in turn, is drawing fire from the National Rifle Association. The NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) called attention to three particular measures on Longmeadow’s Town Meeting warrant, which would ban some firearms outright while also increase gun regulations.

An NRA-ILA email read, “These proposed articles will create unreasonable restrictions on law-abiding gun owners.” The particular articles mentioned in the email were proposed by Alex Grant, a member of Longmeadow’s Select Board, and included a fine of $300 for anyone possessing a firearm, rifle or shotgun in buildings or on recreation property owned by the town; a mandate to provide detailed information on each firearm, rifle or shotgun possessed by owners; and a ban on so-called “assault weapons,” with a $300 fine per day for those who own them.

The NRA-ILA concludes the email with a warning: “Remember, your town could be next.”
