State, local and jurisdictional-level actions related to gun-control (Post-Newtown)

There are multiple threads that have already started related to reactions to the recent shootings. National-level politics tends to take the lead, but what is occurring locally can sometimes be overshadowed.

The idea of starting this thread is to provide discussion on what is occurring within our individual States and localities. Information that would be of good use to responsible gun-owners and those who are engaged with the established processes (executive, legislative, judicial or law-enforcement)

Currently residing in an occupied bastion of liberalism... I watch closely.

Research conducted by a state-appointed task force on the relationship between mental illness and regulated firearms reveals that those on the task force believe additional research is needed.

It also reveals that those conducting the study, a team made up of lawmakers, mental health experts and law enforcement officials, believe keeping guns out of the hands of all considered "mentally ill" may be too broad.

Maybe a court ordered mental health probation where those that need it can check-in/stay at a halfway house or check-in at a community probation site where they can receive/take meds and be on their way. Those who have trouble staying on meds will get the halfway house.

Ahh a fellow Marylander. My father, a NRA instructor, called up to ask about a concealed carry permit and the lady actually laughed at him. Wonderful state.
On topic, I'm not worried about this gun ban bill passing. With a Republican controlled house it just won't happen and not even Obama would dare sign an executive order for that, as much as he does love those handy maneuvers. America will remain a bastion of freedom for the next decade or so at least.

Yeah, I thought that about the Republican House up till they sold out on the fiscal cliff bill.

I don't think so anymore. Anything is possible with these traitors.

Obama will sign anything he wants to now.

Talk about an imperial presidency.

And where pray tell would they put all the new felons that said, 'I will not comply'.

Looks like I may need to sell the property and head West.

While you're probably correct I choose to disagree based on necessity. My sanity and temperament would not hold up well if I believed that.

The only thing Boehner has done in the past couple years I agreed with was telling Harry Reid to go fuck himself, twice. Please no mo' executive orders Massa Obama.

With plenty of accomplices in both houses.
One of many little daggers that were waiting upon swearing in; there are more, their text just isn't back from the Gov Printing Office yet.
Quote:
SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.
This Act may be cited as the `NRA Members' Gun Safety Act of 2013'.
TITLE I--REQUIRING A BACKGROUND CHECK FOR EVERY FIREARM SALE
SEC. 101. PURPOSE.
The purpose of this title is to extend the Brady Law background check procedures to all sales and transfers of firearms.
Note the way it's worded to brand the NRA as endorsing it.
The 'soft' fight is moot and would take a generation or better. The other kind is about to be 'on'.

I think Obama WILL sign it, whether it is a law or an executive order. If the majority of Americans were stupid enough to put him in for another 4 years, then he is definitely dumb enough to sign it. After all, he has nothing to lose, and one thing I have learned is to never ever underestimate someone who has nothing to lose.

There were also a couple of arrests recently at a gun show for vendors selling "high capacity" magazines (more than 20 rounds) which violates MD law.

Looks like MA is going the route of the 7 round limit and a requirement to sell your noncompliant mags.

NH storage facilities will be packed.

"SECTION 24. Said section 131M of chapter 140 of the General Laws, as so appearing, is hereby further amended by striking out, in line 3, the word “1994.” and inserting in place thereof the following words:- 1994; or (ii) a large capacity feeding device that has a capacity of, or that can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than ten rounds of ammunition; or (iii) a large capacity feeding device that such person lawfully possessed before the effective date of this act that has a capacity of, or that can readily be restored or converted to accept, more than seven but no more than ten rounds of ammunition, where such device contains more than seven rounds of ammunition.”

"SECTION 25. Said section 131M of chapter 140 of the General Laws, as so appearing, is hereby further amended by adding the following paragraph:-

Any large capacity feeding device that has or can readily be restored or converted to accept more than ten rounds of ammunition that was legally possessed by an individual prior to the enactment of this act must be sold or otherwise lawfully disposed of within one year of the act’s effective date. Such large capacity feeding devices may only be sold or disposed of to a purchaser authorized to possess such weapon."

Live Free or Die - the good folks of NH have yet to be entirely corrupted by liberal Massholes (apologies for the redundancy).

But, your advice is well taken.
