MARKEY'S "MASS ACT" AIMS TO BRING BAY STATE GUN LAWS TO OTHER STATES

New federal legislation based on Massachusetts gun laws will be unveiled Monday at the Boston Police Department by Mayor Martin Walsh, Sen. Edward Markey and police chiefs from Arlington, Woburn and Watertown.

The Making America Safe and Secure Act, or MASS Act will authorize the Department of Justice to make grants totaling $20 million to states that "implement and maintain comprehensive licensing standards for gun owners and dealers." To be eligible for funds, states would need to adopt standards like those in place in Massachusetts, including giving law enforcement officials the authority to deny, suspend, or revoke a license.
