AN ACT RELATIVE TO THE POSSESSION OF A MACHETE
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:

SECTION 1.

Subsection (b) of section 10 of chapter 269 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2002 Official Edition is hereby amended by inserting after the word “inches”, in line 67, the following word:- , machete.

SECTION 2. Said subsection (b) of said section 10 of said chapter 269, as so appearing, is hereby further amended by adding the following paragraph:-

For purposes of this section, “machete” means “a heavy knife at least 18 inches in length and having a blade at least 1.5 inches wide at its broadest measurement. This subsection shall not apply to carrying a machete on one’s person or in a vehicle if the machete is carried for the purpose of cutting vegetation or if the machete is being transported for the purpose of cutting vegetation. In a prosecution of a violation of this subsection, there shall be a permissible inference that such carrying of a machete is not for the purposes of cutting vegetation. Such presumption may be rebutted.

Any individual who requires a machete for the purposes of cutting vegetation shall register the machete with the local police department on an annual basis and, upon payment of an appropriate annual registration fee as determined by the local granting authority, shall be issued a permit authorizing him to possess the machete solely for the purposes of cutting vegetation

WRONG!!!!!............ In Massachusetts, its all about FEES, FINES AND TAXES......MONEY MONEY MONEY is all the liberal democrat sheeple are interested in.

It's just another revenue source that they found to take advantage of under the guise of making life safer.

Notice that they readily included "A FEE"???? in the writing of the bill?

As usual that shithole has proven it is on the wrong side of the atlantic ocean.

I think this is in response to a certan group of illegal immigrants( un documented migrants) who's prefered weapon of choice is the machette.
I remember when they pretty much over ran sunset park in brooklyn ,and to my suprise there was a rash of machette assaults..my friend was hacked pretty bad by someone...doing the job no one wants to do..

sorry to get your thread locked

You're talking to a lifetime resident ...."FRIEND".

The only "greater good " it is for is the coffers of the state, to be squandered on yet more "entitlement programs" designed to keep people in poverty.

This state is drowning and collapsing under the weight of its own tyrrany.

I agree with the poster above.....somebody nuke this state already....but give me a 15 minute warning to drive to the border if you please.

Actually it's the flaw in the Liberal mindset that causes this .
They can't fathom how people could willfully disregard the rules .
So the answer must be that there are not enough laws .
Clearly , if they make it illegal . Then people will stop doing it

Laugh if you want , but it's true .

They live in their non violent ivory tower world where problems are
solved with words , not actions . They don't understand that life is
a contact sport , and they never will

Instead of actually doing something about the crime they just added another tax
We have an annual tax on swimming pools and dogs here too, just to name a few
