Fox 25 Boston

BOSTON (AP) – A Massachusetts law banning devices designed to make semi-automatic rifles mimic the firing action of fully automatic weapons goes into effect this week.

Massachusetts State Police says starting Thursday, people will be prohibited from possessing bump stocks under all circumstances. The law passed in November also bans the possession of trigger cranks.  

Massachusetts was the first state to ban bump stocks since the October mass shooting in Las Vegas, in which the shooter used the device to kill 58 people and injured hundreds more.

State Police says the first part of the law, which the outlawed the sale or transfer of ownership of the devices, went into effect when the law was signed.

Authorities say owners of bump stock or trigger cranks are should surrender them to police by Thursday.

    OR WHAT????????????????????????????????????????????

  2. I would use my 2nd amendment to protect my fifth on this one.

    Amendment V
    No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

    The last part.
    Private property taken for public use without just compensation.

    So the police want private property turned over to them and there is no just compensation?
    Thats is an unlawfull law. Lock and load.

    1. yup, that and no due process … so the smart ones should tell them to go pound sand
      than take the 5th and walk back in the house ..locked and loaded no less

  3. Unfortunately, the majority (Sheeple) will comply, just like in other parts of the world (Australia and Britain and …).

    Dumb A$$es
