The new Massachusetts “Assault Weapons” ban.

The facts of the Prohibited Assault Weapons Enforcement Notice (20Jul16) :

  1.      Language of “copy” or “duplicate” weapon under the “Assault Weapon” ban clarified to include; semiautomatic weapons that can accept a detachable ammunition magazine and that meet one of the following tests:


  • The weapon’s internal functional components are substantially similar to the construction or configuration of a weapon that is expressly banned under the law (such as a Colt AR-15 or a Kalashnikov AK-47);




  • The weapon has a receiver that includes or accepts key operating components that are interchangeable with those of a banned weapon.  The relevant operating components may include, but are not limited to:


1) the trigger assembly;

2) the bolt carrier or bolt carrier group;

3) the charging handle;

4) the extractor or extractor assembly; or

5) the magazine port.

  1.      Banned sale, transfer, or possession of: Receivers, “State or Massachusetts Compliant” models of firearms that qualify as an “Assault Weapon” as a copy or duplicate, and all previously listed characteristics (ex. pistol grip, flash suppressor, etc.)
  2.   Summary: Under the Commonwealth’s statutory definition, the following are “Assault weapons”:

1)   Weapons on the list enumerated in G.L. c. 140, 121, such as the Colt AR-15 (“Enumerated Weapons”);

2)“Copies” or “Duplicates” of the Enumerated Weapons (“Copies or Duplicates”); and

3) Weapons with certain features as identified in former 18 U.S.C., 921(a) (30) (“Features Test”)


If you are wondering if the AG actually has the legal power to make determinations pertaining to the definitions, the answer is yes. It was agreed to in a short sighted bill that was litigated by a pro-firearm group about 12 years ago.

***Note (from the AG’s website under Q&A)***

Q: What if I already own a gun that is a copy or duplicate?


  • If a weapon is a copy or duplicate of one of the models enumerated in the law, it is an Assault weapon. The Enforcement notice will not be applied to possession, ownership or transfer by an individual gun owner of weapons obtained on or before July 20, 2016.
  • The AGO also will not enforce the law against a gun dealer that possesses or transfers a “copy or duplicate” weapon that was obtained on or before July 20, 2016, provided that transfers, if any, are made to persons or businesses in states where ownership of the weapon is legal.


***Keep in mind; MA is a firearm registration state***

Rhody: I’m wicked proud of my Brothers and Sisters to the north for standing up for their rights this past Saturday (24Jul16) at the State House. No matter the race, gender, preference, creed, age, or whether you’re from the North Shore, Southie, Worcester, or elsewhere, you all stood for something in the thousands, because you won’t fall for anything. Photos. Even Senators and State Representatives are speaking out against Healey.

Super Dupper Show, Great Info, Funny Raport with Great People

by J.Doerksen1 on Jul 23, 2016
RATING: ★★★★★

I am farly new to podcasts and found this one recently, very funny but super informative. They are a group of folks that you would enjoy hanging around with, except for Aaron. Sorry about the Betes man, just know that prosthetics are amazing these days. Only kidding you are ALL great and you would All be fun to have a beer with and at a different time, shoot with. Highly recommend giving this show a try, I became one of their Patreons within a couple of weeks so I can listen to the unedited version. You will not be disappointed unless you are a gun grabber and if you are F#$% OFF…Jim1966

Long time listener, first time…reviewer?

RATING: ★★★★★

I love listening to this show. It’s so easy to listen to, anyone can do it! I once listened to several episodes back to back and by the end of it I had 3 extra inches of length. What do I mean by that? I think we both know! Even if you’re satisfied with your current length, several patreon members have apparently received several inches to girth, as well as a few ounces of weight! How does this happen? Well that’s a propietary secret blend that likely contains shwarma somewhere. Who knows? I don’t! But Let me tell you the ladies have never been more satisfied! THANKS WLS!

Diabetes isn’t funny.

by Tandor on Jul 19, 2016
RATING: ★★★★★

I was recently diagnosed as having type 2 diabetes and it has been very difficult dealing with the changes I have to make. I have to say that the constant jokes and shaming of Aaron about diabetes are… hilarious! Thanks for helping me through a difficult time. I just signed up to be a patreon to hear Jeremy swear without bleeps. To bad you don’t have a pledge level to get the show without ads, but then the episodes would be less than an hour. 😉

What’s in it for me?
