Fascist Mass City Government Severely Infringes on 2A

*Editor’s Note*As readers have learned on this website, this is a classic example of an unconstitutional impairment, a requirement of government, to perform certain acts in order to exercise a constitutional right to keep and bear arms. No other right requires such nonsense. Supreme Court rulings have banned this kind of governmental requirement.

Will the Courts allow this fascism to stand? We know that the Second Amendment receives much different treatment than any other of the Bill of Rights.

This needs to be stopped!

Critics are blasting a Massachusetts city’s new law that they claim requires residents applying for a license to carry handguns to write “an essay” and pay upwards of $1,100 for training.

The new laws take effect this week in Lowell, a city of 110,000 that lies 35 miles north of Boston. Pushed by Police Superintendent William Taylor and passed by the City Council, they require applicants for unrestricted handgun licenses to state in writing why they should receive such a license. Taylor, who was unavailable for comment on Monday, has sole discretion for approving or denying the applications.
