It is deeply regrettable to learn that the Massachusetts Gun Owners Action League (G.O.A.L.) was not invited to the gun bill signing ceremony yesterday given their instrumental role throughout the legislative process. This new comprehensive update to the Commonwealth’s gun laws would not have been possible without the input and contributions of the members of G.O.A.L., especially their Legislative Director, Jim Wallace, and other lawful firearm owners. Jim and the members of G.O.A.L. were tremendous partners at each step of the process and remained focused and committed to finding a middle ground. Without their deep and good faith participation, we could not have arrived at such a landmark event.
