Boston To "Study" Licensing Sale of all Knives

Boston To "Study" Licensing Sale of all Knives:

On Thursday, September 8, 2011 the Public Safety Committee of the Boston City Council will be holding a hearing with the intention of licensing the sale of knives in the city of Boston. Below is the official purpose of the hearing:

That the appropriate committee of the Boston City Council hold a hearing to examine requiring the sale of knives to be licensed by the appropriate police agency that would monitor, regulate and license businesses selling knives. Representatives from the Boston Police Department, Inspectional Services Department, and other interested parties shall be invited to attend.

The meeting will be at City Hall, Ianella Chambers, 5th Floor on Thursday, September 8, 2011 at 10 am.


We urge GOAL members to contact the Boston City Council and express their opposition to this measure. Please keep in mind that this is how gun control got its start in the Commonwealth. Currently citizens need a license to possess pepper spray. In a year or so this measure could lead to licensing citizens to possess a basic pocket knife.

Protecting YOUR freedom begins here!
