How To Choose Shooting Accessories In Massachusetts
In choosing the right target shooting gloves in Massachusetts it is an important first step in becoming a competitive shooter. Although shooting gloves are usually used by competitive shooters they are also excellent for anyone shooting on a regular basis or large number of rounds. The proper fitting shooting glove that you choose can directly influence the scores you attain. Some things to consider while choosing your first pair of shooting gloves, the first is to choose between open and closed finder gloves. We prefer the open trigger finger design of shooting glove as it split the difference between the full finger shooting gloves and the all open finger shooting gloves. The trigger finger is the one open finger on these gloves, and the remaining 4 fingers are closed. This allows the shooter to feel the pressure on the trigger, while offering protection to the remaining fingers and thumb.
As part of any shooters list of shooting accessories in Massachusetts we recommend at a minimum; Shooting glasses, a spotting scope, shooting gloves, a multi-tool, a shooting bag, ear protection, a small first aid kit, target tape, gun cleaning supplies, and hand sanitizer, and a small hand towel.

The Massachusetts State Constitution states: “The people have a right to keep and bear arms for the common defense. And as, in time of peace, armies are dangerous to liberty, they ought not to be maintained without the consent of the legislature, and the military power shall always be held in an exact subordination to the civil authority, and be governed by it.”
Massachusetts Law requires firearm owners to be licensed through their local Police Department or the Massachusetts State Police if no local licensing authority is available. A license is required by state law for buying firearms and ammunition. An applicant must have passed a State approved firearm safety course before applying for a license.
IN 1998, Massachusetts passed what was hailed as the toughest gun-control legislation in the country. Among other stringencies, it banned semiautomatic “assault” weapons, imposed strict new licensing rules, prohibited anyone convicted of a violent crime or drug trafficking from ever carrying or owning a gun, and enacted severe penalties for storing guns unlocked. “Today, Massachusetts leads the way in cracking down on gun violence,” said Republican Governor Paul Cellucci as he signed the bill into law. “The new gun law,” he predicted, “will certainly prevent future gun violence and countless grief.” IT DID NOT HAPPEN: “There were nearly 1.5 million active gun licenses in Massachusetts in 1998,” the AP reported. “In June of 2002, that number was down to just 200,000.” Since 1998, gun crime in Massachusetts has gotten worse, not better. In 2011, Massachusetts recorded 122 murders committed with firearms, the Globe reported this month — “a striking increase from the 65 in 1998.” Other crimes rose too. Between 1998 and 2011, robbery with firearms climbed 20.7 percent. Aggravated assaults jumped 26.7 percent.
When citizens cannot defend themselves from crime and evil because the STATE has disarmed them, this is always the end result, crime rates rise. Gun Control simply does not work! The anti-gun groups in Massachusetts will never admit they were wrong, instead they have publicly blamed the surrounding states for not having the same laws as Massachusetts, “it’s their fault because guns have no borders they have argued.”
It is amazing how supposedly educated individuals can be so narrow minded and completely oblivious to the facts that are clearly placed before them, the truth is evident to everyone EXCEPT to those with self-imposed blinders, when the facts are counter to their personal misguided agendas they simply ignore them.

Massachusetts has a national reputation as a bastion of gun control, but crimes and injuries related to firearms have risen, sometimes dramatically, since the state passed a comprehensive package of gun laws in 1998. Murders committed with firearms have increased significantly, aggravated assaults and robberies involving guns have risen, and gunshot injuries are up, according to FBI and state data.
To gun-rights groups like the National Rifle Association, these statistics are evidence that gun control does not work. But to gun-control advocates, the numbers show that no state, no matter how tough the laws, is protected from firearms violence when guns are brought in from other states.
Really, so now it’s the others states that are the issue, the anti-gun groups in Massachusetts are now blaming their surrounding states as the problem and will not admit that gun control does not work. Interestingly in the states that are pro-gun and strong supporters of the 2nd amendment do not see the need to point fingers at their surrounding states, wonder why that is? To quote truth, logic, facts, and statistics to narrow minded career politicians that are unwavering in their anti-gun agenda is pointless, its not about truth, never has been, its about their political life….its about exercising their will over the will of the people, its about power.
Massachusetts is a “may-issue” state; officials are not required to issue concealed carry permits to qualified applicants. Applicants must show justification for being allowed to carry concealed weapons, such as personal threats, being in a high-risk profession, or routinely carrying large sums of money.
Laws disarming people who have proven themselves to be a particular threat to public safety and laws that aim to disarm the public at large are precisely what turned a political argument into the American Revolution!
Massachusetts gun laws are among the most severe in the nation, requiring permission from local law enforcement officials before the purchase of any firearm; allowing local law enforcement agencies to set conditions on the possession or use of that firearm, the gun must be stored unloaded and may not be used for self-defense; and demanding all guns be registered. Massachusetts has in all reality completely disarmed its citizens and left them helpless in the face of criminals.
