Massachusetts: Gun Control Bill Passes Senate, Today, with a vote of 38-0, the Massachusetts state Senate passed a version of the Amendment 1 legislation with less infringements than what was passed yesterday in the House.  The original Amendment 1 attached to House Bill 3951 would ban “any device which attaches to a [firearm]…that is designed to increase the rate of discharge” of a firearm with a very broad and overreaching definition.  For example, it would have banned firearm modifications such as match grade triggers, muzzle brakes, and ergonomic changes that are commonly done by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability.  The version of this Amendment passed by the senate has a much narrower definition of these devices to only include “bump stocks” and “trigger cranks.  In addition, it does not ban these devices, but puts them under Section 121, Chapter 140 of the Commonwealth general laws by amending the definition of “machine gun.”, https://www.nraila.org/articles/2017101 ... ses-senate,
