Massachusetts, Brady, and reasonable gun laws
Let's see... Massachusetts has police permit requirements for obtaining any guns, including rifles, storage requirements, effectively a long waiting period (it takes weeks to get the permit), a year's mandatory imprisonment for first-offense carrying without a permit or with an expired permit, limits on large magazines, etc., etc.
But Brady Campaign hasn't folded its tent there and proclaimed it's gotten enough. Instead, it's calling for more.
"Dan Vice, a staff attorney with the Brady Campaign, which advocates for gun control, said Massachusetts needs to establish a statewide registry of legally owned guns. He also urged the state to restrict gun purchases to one per month.
"The good news is Massachusetts has been a model for the nation, but much more can be done," he said. "
UPDATE: I should have said that carrying with an expired permit can land you in jail for a year. The first prosecution under the law as I recall, back in the 70s, was of a fellow who had a carrying permit, but had let it expire. He decided to pawn the gun, in order to buy a class ring, and got stopped on the drive, with the firearm in plain view and the permit expired. He got the year in jail.
