Fellow Residents, Gun Owners, Friends,
The proposed ban made the Lowell Sun today, so if you haven't seen it please get a copy and check it out.
There is supposed to be a segment on WBUR 90.9FM tomorrow morning during the 7AM hour. Please tune in!
The time has come for ALL of us to call our selectmen and let them know our opposition to Article 30. Please take the time to email AND call them. Please do both. When you do, here are some talking points you may want to focus on.
The Selectmen seem to have bypassed normal town process for understanding an issue and formulating a response (public comment prior to issuing an Article). Why?
Due to impact on civil rights, long periods of public input, and out reach to affected parties is critical. - Why None Now?
What about the criminal? Will they disarm? If not, are we safer?
If this is a public safety issue, how many lives are expected to be saved per year, and based on what public studies? No studies are cited, only three rare (albeit horrific) instances. Why?
If you target shoot or hunt with a potentially banned firearm, state so, and explain that these are the most popular firearms for that purpose.
If you do not get to talk to them, please leave a message with your name and number and ask them to call you back. Call daily until you are able to speak with them.
All of their phone numbers and email addresses are in the right hand column. You will notice that Bob Jefferies contact info is not there. We are fairly well convinced that attempting to change his mind would be a waste of time.
There will be a meeting on Thursday night. We are nailing down a location and time and should have that out to you tomorrow.
Contact the Selectmen
I find it hypocritical for them to declare it as an "Assault Rifle" when DHS defines a select fire version as a PDW (personal defense weapon)
