I thought that WAS Barney Fife! Think he has a single cartridge in his shirt pocket?

It's such a shame that all of these states in the Northeast that were the birthplace of this republic are in the state they're in today.

It took Massachusetts only 7 days to endorse the Boston chief's idea and give Massachusetts police chiefs veto power over citizen purchase of ALL rifles and shotguns. MA state now has the national lead on gun tyranny.

A little thought would reveal that this can't work without full registration because there would otherwise be no way to control private sales. That should logically come next, and we know what comes after that.

The effort didn't quite match the dead of night tactics of New York with its SAFE act, but it sure is close. There couldn't have been much citizen input in that time frame during the summer. This unusually rapid action also suggests that this was a carefully planned and orchestrated event by those in power rather than a random police chief's comment that got picked up by the legislature as a good idea.

One wonders if the states with democrat leadership have a competition going to see who can go full communist first.

This seems to be a cyclical trend. General Gage would be proud.

It seems to me that US gun control tends to be the most restrictive in places where organized crime has the deepest roots. NYC is case in point:

The strange birth of NY’s gun laws

While they try to deny it these days, the Kennedy family certainly sold a lot of liquor back in the day:
In the Twenties, rumour had it that Kennedy was a bootlegger, importing and selling illicit liquor. Doris Kearns, the only historian to have access to Kennedy's papers, found scant evidence there to support the claims made by, among others, the gangsters Frank Costello and Meyer Lansky of large underworld deals. But Kennedy went into the Prohibition era with large stocks of liquor from his father's stores, and on the day it ended he had three lucrative franchises for British whisky and gin, a company to important them, and a network of retailers already in place. It was the work of a man who knew well where the subterranean rivers of illicit booze had run during Prohibition, but kept the knowledge close. His papers guard it still.

This is my opinion. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

I agree that the union areas are a factor. Northern NJ is deep union territory. Chicago is another union stronghold. But I'm not sure that the unions are the only factor in gun control and would point to Bloomberg and several of the other rich Liberals who are funding it.

Thinking about the influence of organized crime in certain anti-2nd Amendment locations (Chicago, California), there are some good books on the subject of mafia influence of government:

The Outfit is about the Chicago Mafia

Supermob: How Sidney Korshak and His Criminal Associates Became America's Hidden Power Brokers covers the expansion of the Chicago mafia into California and their expanded influence on Hollywood and politics.

They banned standard capacity mags, they banned fireworks, then they went after vape pens, they want to ban ballons, and now control language. It's all about controlling the peasants and serfs.
