BOSTON – Hundreds of pro-gun activists from across the state gathered outside the State House on Wednesday to rally against House Speaker Robert DeLeo’s gun control bill.

The activists, most organized by the Gun Owners Action League, decried the bill currently making its way through the house for imposing what they said were unnecessary restrictions on law-abiding gun owners.

GOAL’s executive director Jim Wallace said the gun laws currently on the books are “destructive” and “convoluted.”

“You’re not affecting the criminal element by going after us and putting more burdens on us,” said Wallace.

Wallace, like other GOAL activists, took issue with language in the bill that severely limits the private sale of guns between licensed owners. The bill in its current form would require gun owners to sell their firearms through licensed brick and mortar gun shops even if they are selling them to another person with a gun permit.
