When: November 6, 2013
Where: Boston State House Grand Staircase Second Floor

Coalition’s Key Priorities for New Gun Legislation:

  1. Require background checks every time a gun is sold.
  2. Expand police chiefs’ discretion to deny gun licensees when appropriate.
  3. Limit gun sales to one gun per month.
  4. Collect data to better determine where crime guns are coming from.
