In Massachusetts, police are apparently allowed to use their own discretion to deny permits to purchase guns, even to people who have never been arrested.

It is touted as the toughest gun law in America. Basically, “something’s not right here” can be the basis for denying a permit to purchase a firearm.

To say the least.

That’s the key.

Here’s what the Boston Police Commissioner said in defense of the law:

“It’s crazy that some states just give out these guns with very few requirements.”

The 2nd Amendment is part of the U.S. Constitution, which applies to every state. States shouldn’t just decide they are going to follow certain parts of it.

Nope, never seen that before. Ever.
