Email Your State Senator Today
Keep Sniper Rifles and “Cop-Killer” Handguns Off Our Streets
Urge Him or Her to Bring SB 2113 to the Floor for a Vote!

Dear Massachusetts StoptheNRA Member,

Right now, a bill to ban .50 caliber sniper rifles and “cop-killer” handguns in Massachusetts is being held hostage in the State Senate Ways and Means Committee. This delaying tactic is exactly what the NRA asked for -- it wants to stall it there so there will be no vote on the Senate floor. The NRA is so scared of SB 2113 that they don’t even want to give your elected officials the opportunity to vote on it! We need your help today to give this bill some momentum and get it back on track for a full Senate vote.

CLICK HERE TO EMAIL YOUR STATE SENATOR TODAY!


This important legislation was introduced by State Senator Jarrett T. Barrios and cleared its first hurdle earlier this month when it passed favorably out of its first committee, demonstrating our legislators' commitment to ban these dangerous weapons in our Commonwealth.

The .50 caliber sniper rifle is an extremely lethal high-powered weapon of war advertised for its ability to shoot down airplanes and knock out targets up to four miles away. These are not hunting rifles and they have no place in our communities.

The new FiveSeveN concealable handgun is dubbed the “cop-killer” because it fires bullets that can tear right through a police officer’s bulletproof vest. We need legislation to help protect our police officers, not put their lives in jeopardy.

We need your help today to ensure there is a full Senate vote on SB 2113 so that these dangerous killing machines are kept off the streets of Massachusetts.

HERE IS WHAT YOU CAN DO TODAY:

1. Click Here to Email Your State Senator Today. Urge him or her to: “Contact the Senate Ways & Means Committee to Release SB 2113 to the Floor for a Vote -- Keep .50 Caliber Sniper Rifles and 'Cop-Killer' Handguns Off Our Streets!”

2. Forward this e-mail to friends, family, and colleagues in Massachusetts.
3. Click here to contribute to our efforts in Massachusetts and across the country.

For more information on this legislation and how to get involved in the gun violence prevention movement in Massachusetts, contact the Massachusetts Million Mom March Chapters and Stop Handgun Violence.

Working together, we can keep these killing machines from coming to Massachusetts and set an example for other states to follow.

Thank you for standing with us to keep our communities safe.


Sincerely,
Your Friends at StoptheNRA.com

Spreading such misinformation with the intent to remove the rights of others should be punishable by death.

i dont want to be on an airliner that gets shot down by those things!

not to mention, i live in FL..... the space shuttle could crash into my house after getting hit by one of those terrible death machine guns!

they're just going to work their way down the caliber food chain. next up will be the 308 because it's a military caliber and has nothing to do with civilian use or some bullshit

How do we get this on the ballot?

Doesn't Barrett make a .4xx rifle now that shoots farther and flatter than the .50, and hits with more terminal energy?

As for the bullet proof vest nonsense, and yes I'm aware for the 5-7 ammunition issue, they can go to hell. My calculations tell me that at present, I, Joe Citizen, am more likely to be murdered than a police officer, so any hue and cry about their safety actively pisses me off.

This is probably the best example of how litteraly retarded these people are, considering the 5-7 has never been for sale in this state.
