    The way that's worded, it could be used to prosecute people for BB guns and airsoft guns.

    Petition don't mean jack squat. And poorly written. Civil? Criminal?

    Strict liability, no. Negligence, yes. But you have to prove it to the jury.........Says the SJC:

    Lloyds of London would be happy to quote you a policy premium. As long as you can afford a hefty second or third mortgage on your house, you should be OK.

    Yeah, I’m just waiting for these idiots to jail the generation before you and the generation after you if you don’t comply. Lol. This initiative definitely seems North Korea-like.

    On another note, if this nonsense passes the vote, this could set up something on storage altogether. IIRC, Heller tackles this infringement:

    What if you leave your gun in a recycling bin or a restaurant bathroom?

    You're all missing something important here... What the f*** is a "certified" gun safe?

    Who the f*** certifies safes? Certified for what?

    Also, what happens if some dickwhistle comes in here and rips my safe out of the floor and takes it with them? Now when they torch it open am I responsible for all the crimes they then commit? Christ, I know several instances where exactly that happened.

    It also reads like you have to have a some sort of safe for your car for transport....

    This is just f***ing awful. You already have to secure guns when not in use and report stolen guns by law. What the f*** is this going to accomplish?

    more punishment for the innocent.

    it is an attempted deterrent to get people to willing give up their firearms. I am pretty sure it is unconstitutional to punish the innocent but again this is an act Hitler didn't really care about so why should the dems.

    since they want to charge legal gun owners with a crime if the gun was stolen and used in a crime then they should implement laws that exempt gun owners from persecution of they have the certified storage items. Then they should implement in the law a provision that anyone caught in possession of a firearm that was stored in such a device and stolen that the one who possesses the firearm is put to death weather an assault occurred with that firearm or not.

    This is a ballot initiative in a state staunchly opposed to firearm ownership. If it makes it onto the ballot, it will pass.

    The goal seems to be to create another barrier to owning firearms in the state. It would discourage people considering buying firearms since they could be charged with the felonies of others.

    Not even Maura would approve that

    By the way? Where has the little tyrant been? It’s been very quiet lately.

    She poured liquid in herself to be wet over this. Her kind of law is one she makes up as she goes along.
