RESTORATION OF CIVIL RIGHTS. Conflict Between Massachusetts & Federal Law

Posted on

RESTORATION OF CIVIL RIGHTS

Conflict Between Massachusetts & Federal Law

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms has reached out to the Massachusetts Firearms Review Board and advised them that they can no longer issue License to Carry or Firearms Identification Cards to Federally Prohibited Persons even if a favorable decision is made by the Firearms License Review Board. 

As of May 11, 2018. The MA Firearms Review Board will NO longer issue FID Cards to federally prohibited persons whose rights to an FID Card have been restored after 5 years under state law. Which means that the persons rights will be revoked. 

(Below is from Massachusetts Firearms Law Guide) 

Excerpt of Case Law Concerning Restoration of Rights
Any restriction on an individual’s right to possess firearms after conviction is a complete prohibition on the possession of all firearms under Federal law. Caron v. United States (1998)

Excerpt of Letter to Massachusetts Legislature Concerning Restoration of Rights

While Massachusetts has partially restored the rights of certain felons to possess long guns and handguns under certain conditions, this restoration does not remove federal prohibitions. As a result, previously convicted felons who have not had their firearms rights completely restored may not lawfully possess firearms under Federal law and may face prosecution under section 922(g)(1) despite their lawful possession under State law pursuant to valid FID Cards.

Five Fast Gun Reforms President Trump Will Sign Into Law

Posted on Updated on

Come train with us so you can get your License to Carry a firearm and be able to carry in all 50 States when President Trump enacts the National Concealed Carry Reciprocity law. 

Here are five fast gun law reforms President Trump and his Republican House and Senate can make.

Ending Gun-Free Zones On Military Bases

President Trump will have the authority to executive authority to pass an executive order allowing the United States military to carry firearms on duty. Our domestic military bases and facilities have been the site of numerous terror attacks and mass shootings. Trump can reverse that with the stroke of a pen. He would also apparently have the authority to end firearm bans on other federal property, but there are so many laws and regulations that I don’t want to make that claim prematurely.

National Concealed Carry Reciprocity

There is significant momentum towards establishing national concealed carry reciprocity in all 50 states. President Trump, working with a Republican-controlled House and Senate, should be able to get this passed into law within the first 90 days. There are four different bills to choose from in the House and Senate.

Legalizing Silencers

Making a hearing safety device criminal was one of the dumbest things ever done under the Administration of Franklin D. Roosevelt… and that’s saying a lot. The Hearing Protection Act is already written and has co-sponsors. It should be passed within the first 60 days of President Trump’s administration, which is a blessing to high-volume shooters such as myself who would like to better protect our hearing.

NICS Background Check Reform

Gun control supporters want a “universal” background checks on all gun purchases in order to create a de facto gun registry… and that’s just not going to happen. What is going to happen is that President Trump, the House, and Senate are going to work on legislation to close the gaping holes in the existing background check system so that it is more effective, ensuring better and more accurate updating of prohibited persons. This will likely run in conjunction with mental health reform to both help people in crisis obtain the help they need, and ensure that fears of losing their Second Amendment rights won’t keep people from seeking help for a temporary but important mental health crisis.

Allow Importation of Collectible Historical Firearms

President Obama has stymied the importation of historically significant firearms provided to allies after the Second World War and the Korean War through executive orders. The Collectible Firearms Protection Act will allow the reimportation of hundreds of thousand of M1 Garands, M1 Carbines, and M1911 pistols.

These are five laws that a Republican Congress and President Trump can pass within the first 90-180 days, but they are not the only laws being considered.
