The Declaration of Independence is some five pages long. The Constitution is about 12 pages long. The "Lawful Citizen Firearm Possession Prohibition Infringement Statute" of Massachusetts is over 60 pages long!
Now remember, this Massachusetts law does not address the criminal misuse of firearms. It only restricts what lawful Americans are able to do to just possess a firearm! This law is so corrupt that if you have in your possession, an empty shell casing or even a souvenir lead muzzle-loading bullet from the Revolutionary or Civil War, you will be arrested for possessing ammunition without a license!
But then there is always California law and I realize Massachusetts ain't the only corrupted state that burdens lawful Americans to possess firearms based upon the actions of criminals. How many pages are required to contain the "California Lawful Citizens Firearm Restriction" law?
So a new unsecured database of lawful gun owners in California has been signed into law by Gov. Davis, to be used as a check against those people who have become disqualified to possess firearms.
