Last month, a bill was introduced in Massachusetts that, among other gun control provisions, would give local police chiefs an enormous amount of power to determine who in their jurisdiction could own a long gun (rifle or shotgun).
This is inconsistent with the 2nd Amendment as a fundamental, individual right. I do not think that the proposed law would survive a Supreme Court challenge, but the legislation is still in play (currently in negotiations between the House and the Senate). We should also be aware of who has supported this provision to make sure their future political aspirations are appropriately limited.
To borrow a meme from Joe, don't ever let anyone tell you they don't want to take your guns.
