Massachusetts lawmakers pass bill tightening state gun laws

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 08/01/2014 - 23:13
By Elizabeth Barber BOSTON (Reuters) - Massachusetts lawmakers on Friday tightened the state's already strict gun laws by passing a measure that gives police chiefs authority to turn down a resident's requests to buy a rifle or shotgun if they believe the person may be a danger. House lawmakers overrode objections from gun-rights advocates in the state Senate who had opposed the measure, worrying that police chiefs could abuse the authority to deny firearms to law-abiding citizens. "We seek not to be the safest state in the nation but strive to make our communities the safest in the world," said House Speaker Robert DeLeo, a Democrat. The bill now goes to Governor Deval Patrick, a fellow Democrat, who supports tightening the state's gun laws.
