MA Lawmaker Wants Home Inspections for Gun Owners

Nov 11, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Free Republic

In Massachusetts, things aren't looking very rosy for civil liberties. Already suffering under a 'high capacity' magazine ban and other draconian firearms restrictions, some lawmakers don't feel they haven't gone far enough toward preventing another Newtown.

"...From 3000 to 4000 foreigners, chiefly from South American ports, are supposed to arrive in California every week. There is great complaint at the Mines and in all the growing out of the immense number of foreigners. They outnumber the Americans ten to one, in the mining districts, and their demeanor is correspondingly overbearing. A Native American Association is to be formed, and upon the arrival of large bodies of Americans, who were understood to have sailed from various parts of the United States during the months of January and February, they were determined to drive foreigner out of the country, at every hazard.--The Americans are far better armed than the foreigners, nearly all of them having revolvers and other arms, and being superior to them in physical and mental qualities. Mr Loring has furnished the Courier an interesting statement of life in California, from which we copy as follows:

"On the 18th of April, news reached San Francisco that an attack had been made upon the Americans at the mines by the Indians. It proved that such an attack had been made, and that Americans had been killed. It is supposed the Indians were set on by the Mexicans. The miners immediately formed a strong party started in pursuit. They soon overtook the In Indians, attacked them and killed fifteen on the spot. They also took twenty five prisoners brought them into the camp..." [Pg. 246]

"...Think of the vast stocks and deposits of merchandize laid up in stores for the purposes of commerce. Think of the ships and the freights which they are carrying. Think of the steamboats. Think of the wharves, the roads, the pavements, the railroads with their wondrous enginery, the milldams and mills, the workshops with their tools, the great manufactories with their machinery, and the supply of raw materials in the shops and manufactories at any given moment. Think of the fisheries, the quarrries, the mines, and all the machinery and apparatus for working them. Think of the forts and arsenals and armories and their contents, and of all the various kinds of arms and weapons distributed among the people. Think of the edifices devoted to religion, to legislation and justice, and to the education of the people. Think of the piles erected for the abode of learning, the apparatus and cabinets, and the libraries.--And last of all--not to say least of all--think of the banks, and all the gold and silver in their vaults, and the gold and silver coin in circulation.

"In this way--by some such recollection and summing up of particulars, you may begin to form some idea of the wealth existing in New England now, compared with the wealth which existed within the same territorial limits two hundred and fifty years ago." [Pg. 226 "New England as it was and as it is."]
