Another "Common Sense" Gun Law, No Doubt

File Under: Did You Know?

It costs more to relinquish one's "right" to own a gun in Massachusetts, than it does to obtain the same rights and privileges in New Hampshire, Maine or Vermont (or pretty much anywhere else, for that matter)?

After shelling out close to $900 to secure my "right" to own a gun in the land of the "most effective gun laws in the nation", I am now REQUIRED by law to notify the state's Firearms Record Bureau, BY CERTIFIED MAIL, that my Massachusetts gun license is no longer valid, on account of my having moved out-of-state.

They had to fuck me just one last time on my way out the door, I suppose.
