[url]http://www.massnews.com/2002_editions/Print_editions/10_Oct/1002_mn_gun_law_felons.shtml#1[/url] The state of Mass. failed to inform its citizens of changes in gun laws that resulted in millions of "lifetime firearm card" owners suddenly holding invalid cards.

Yes, I always question the sanity of these people. If you are trying to do somthing important, get a powerful lawyer. If you don't, you are screwed. These people are nuts if they think they can defeat the entire anti-gun establishment singlehandedly.

How many [b]Million[/b] people live in Mass? What percentage are gun owners? What percentage of Mass gun owners are affected by this law?

Representing yourself in court is noble, but STUPID. Almost a guaranteed loss.

The media ran many many articals and stories about the changes at the time before during and after it went into effect. The problem is it is so poorly written most LEO have no idea what is legal or not. they have been clarifiing bits of it but most of the repressive parts are still there. I am just guessing but this guy was busted for more than he is saying. like a past conviction or something. Lots of folks have either sold thier guns or just don't give a crap and don't take them out of the attic. The amount of disinformation is stunning. As to this guys case, he will loose without a lawyer I agree.
