If anyone needs further proof that Gun Control is about disarming law abiding citizens and has NOTHING to do with actually stopping criminals, they need look no further than Eastern Massachusetts.
A new gun control law takes effect this week in Lowell, Massachusetts, 35 Miles North of Boston. (I can only imagine that the wafting scent of beans from the South has somehow addled the brains of the elected officials and police brass in this city of 110,000 people.)
This law requires applicants to state in writing why they should receive such an unrestricted handgun license. Basically, they must write an essay pleading with “THE MAN” as to why the government should allow simple peons to exercise their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
This outright affront to the Constitution was pushed by Police Superintendent William Taylor and passed by the City Council. Taylor has sole discretion for approving or denying the applications.
