The less Massholes that have guns the better. ha ha You're nothing but a bunch of drug dealing loud mouthed psyschos that don't deserve guns let alone be allowed out of Mass-hole-achusetts. There should be a wall built around Mass to keep you monsters locked up.

There's a reason that Mass has such strict gun laws. The gun laws in Massachusetts are a result of the behavior of its citizens. The legislature in Mass has reacted to the criminal nature of some of its citizens. Massachusetts has a huge amount of robberies, assaults and murder.
Any major city in Massachusetts has more murders per year than NH has had in all of its history. That's why people in Massachusetts have so many restrictions related to firearms. They have proven, through their own actions, that they cannot be trusted to have the same freedoms that people in NH have.
It has nothing to do with big brother or a "conspiracy" to deny the citizens of Massachusetts their freedom. The citizens of Massachusetts have proven that they cant handle that freedom. The have provrn it millions of times.
if it really was a conspiracy, you wouldnt be able to move 20 minutes up the highway and get all your freedoms back.
