Rep. Day Briefing on Firearms Omnibus July 17

We are thrilled to announce that Representative Michael Day of Stoneham, Chair of the Joint Committee on the Judiciary, will brief us on his brand new omnibus bill, An Act to Modernize Firearm Laws, HD4220, on Monday, July 17 at 7:00 PM via Zoom. Chair Day filed the 141 page bill this week—the most sweeping legislation since the gun reform bill of 2014. Conducting an 11 stop firearms listening tour throughout the Commonwealth, Rep. Day was charged with writing the bill following the US Supreme Court’s decision in the Bruen concealed carry case. House Speaker Mariano indicated the legislation could serve as a national model for Congress and other states. Please join us to learn about this landmark bill and how you can advocate for its swift passage. LWVMA Convention adopted Preventing Gun Violence as an Action Priority for this biennium. We encourage all League members to attend and to share the event with their personal networks. Register here. Read the summary and press release here.
