Make Massachusetts a Constitutional Carry State

I am a Massachusetts resident who almost fell victim to criminals with a firearm. Although I complied with their every demand, my life was still threatened and they even laughed at the idea of “plugging” me just because.
This was the first time I ever felt like I could lose my life at that exact moment. Police were literally right up the street as this whole situation played out and because I had no accurate description from the adrenaline rush that coursed my body in that moment, no suspects were apprehended, And they were all wearing black with their hoodies tied as well. I feel that if we are a Constitutional Carry State, that inccidents like these will decline, and to quote our forefathers on the issue:
"The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."
- Thomas Jefferson, Commonplace Book (quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria), 1774-1776
I urge the residents of Massachuestts to put forward this purposal under “The 2nd Amendment Guarantee Act” to protect everyone in Massachusetts, so that all competent citizens have liberty to enforce their own security without permits or licenses. Could you imagine if you needed a license to belong to a religious institution? Or to Speak Freely?
- Please keep in mind that only criminals do not follow laws, and most cases in MA in terms of firearm related violence and homicides is caused with illegal handguns, as well as the information about the assailants target being unarmed.
- We DO NOT want to change any standing Massachusetts law that has been passed through Due Process & Legislation.
- We DO want to repeal a Licenses Fee that serves no purpose except profiting of Constitutional Rights and Denying those who cannot afford said Right.
