Voters Reject Bylaw To Give Police Gun Descriptions

CNS News – by Eric Scheiner

WGGB-TV reports that Longmeadow, Mass. residents recently voted down a series of controversial gun control initiatives at the annual town meeting last week.

Voters rejected proposals that would require gun owners to provide the police department with descriptions of each firearm they own, limit where guns can be carried in town and ban certain types of guns and magazines inside town lines altogether.  

“There were strong opinions shared on both sides. I think town meeting is really a reflection of the human condition, it was anger, frustration, humor, there is some emotion to that,” Town Manager, Stephen Crane told WGGB.

Three laws related to gun control were up for a vote. The first law would impose a $300 fine on anyone who possesses a firearm, rifle, or shotgun in town-owned buildings or recreational properties.

The second required that gun owners provide the police department with descriptions of each firearm they own with serial number, make, model, and caliber.

The final law would have banned “assault weapons”and “large capacity” feeding devices.

Turn out was high for voters, who rejected all three measures.
