Massachusetts proposed law house docket number 4420 otherwise known as HD.4420

This alert goes out to real estate agents, electricians, plumbers, HVAC technicians and others who travel to perform their services throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for the benefit of other Massachusetts residents and businesses

(This segment was taken from a recently recorded YouTube video )

The Full Language
The full language of the proposed law containing 140 pages can be obtained by googling house docket number 4420 or HD. 4420 the relevant section that I want to draw to your attention in this informational segment is located on pages 124 and 125 section 173 line numbers 2604 through 2622

The Relevant Section
The proposed law will limit your ability to enter private property with your firearm unless you have prior express approval from the owner.

Should you fail to get prior express approval you could be arrested and go to jail for up to 2 ½ years and face a fine of up to $1000.00

Prohibited Area
This section of the proposed law beginning on line number 2610 defines prohibited area to include any part of the building and grounds or parking areas of any private property including but not limited to residential commercial industrial agricultural institutional or undeveloped property unless the owner has provided express consent or has posted a sign indicating that it is permissible to carry on the premises a firearm with a valid and lawfully issued firearm license or permit under Chapter 140

Ask yourself Will the career criminal or drug dealer see this as an opportunity to assault you possibly with deadly force while you are simply doing your job?

I suggest that you as a small business owner or employee may have obtained your license to carry to protect your life so you can provide for your family.

Consider for a moment that you leave your house early in the evening to provide services for a customer or client. You notice that you are running low on gas and you see a gas station that has a drive through for a certain coffee and donut shop. You decide to get gas and go through the drive-through for the donut shop. I suggest that under the new proposed law If you are carrying a firearm and have failed to get permission from the owner you could be arrested and go to jail

The reality is that the police can only respond to an incident after that incident has occurred and after they have received notice of that incident. I suggest that they are generally not there while the incident/assault is taking place but can only arrive later to assist the victim

No Effect on Criminal Element
I suggest the proposed law will no affect on the career criminal or career drug dealer who is out on bail. The proposed law will have no effect on gang versus gang violence nor will it have any effect in drive-by shootings by teenagers. But has the potential to make you there legally licensed gun owner less safe as you go about your business earning money for yourself and family

You have most likely invested time and money in your concealed carry firearms but now you need to pick up your phone and make the call to your representative if you feel strongly about this issue and your rights

Your First Amendment Rights
Should you wish to contact your state representative and exercise your 1st amendment rights to voice your opinion in protection of your Second Amendment rights.

Their contact information is on the Massachusetts State House website

As I have indicated previously I do not represent any specific group or organization with this segment

You have rights under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution and this proposed law seeks to impair and destroy those rights
