Massachusetts police chiefs demand more power to disarm citizenry

“Police chiefs rally for gun safety at the State House,” WWLP-22News (“Working for You”) “reported” Tuesday.
“Reported” was put in quotation marks, because this thinly-disguised paean to state control begins with the biggest gun-grabber lie of all, that citizen disarmament provides safety, immediately followed by their lie du jour, that “There have been 74 school shootings since Sandy Hook,” a bit of manipulation and deception exposed for what it is by journalist Charles C. Johnson.
“The unusual public criticism by police chiefs comes after the Senate last week voted to remove a House provision giving chiefs discretion to deny firearms identification cards, required to buy shotguns and rifles, to people they deem unsuitable,” The Boston Globe explained. “They now have that discretion over licenses to carry handguns.”
