A pro-gun, anti-crime bill two years in the making is gaining momentum in Massachusetts. Jim Wallace, executive director of the Gun Owners Action League (GOAL), says that House Bill 2259 "separates the good guys from the bad guys by statute" and is tougher on criminals than the laws currently on the books. The legislation includes a simplification of the licensing process for law-abiding citizens, protects the right to keep and bear arms from infringement by local governments, creates 13 categories of persons who are prohibited from owning a firearm and specifies parameters around handling a machine gun.
