Banning BB Guns
You might think that Massachusetts can't become any more anti-gun.
Well, think again. Now there's a proposal to ban BB guns in Massachusetts. Complete with a BB gun amnesty period. And a BB gun buyback program.
In fact, these politicians not only plan to ban BB guns in Massachusetts, they're sending letters to Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Rhode Island to ask those states to do the same.
I had bought a Daisy BB gun to teach my kids how to shoot in the woods across from my house. Come to find out that Sherwood has a city ordinance against firing BB guns, slingshots, etc within city limits. (The only way to find this ordinance is with a google site search to find the minutes of an obscure meeting)
I guess the girlie men on the city council are worried about someone losing an eye. While I'm disapointed that we can't plink pop cans in the woods it's worked out since once we are outside of city limits my boys can freely shoot a 12gauge instead. (with a little help)
