Massachusetts lawmakers sent a bill to Gov. Deval Patrick’s desk for passage that puts police chiefs in charge of deciding whether or not a person is fit enough to own a gun — and gives them the power to deny purchases in certain cases.
“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, Reuters reported.
Mr. Patrick supports the measure and is expected to sign it into law soon.
I wonder if they’d let their police chiefs decide who can cover the news or go to church or speak their mind in public?
