2/4 update: Report: Mass. Needs To Tighten Its Gun Laws
BOSTON — A new report expected to spark proposals to change state gun laws is due out Monday from a legislative task force.
House Speaker Robert DeLeo appointed the task force following the 2012 massacre at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.
“I have learned that while Massachusetts has some of the strongest gun laws in the country, there is room for improvement,” DeLeo said last week while outlining his goals for the legislative session.
He gave no indication of what the group's recommendations would be.
Police seized six illegal guns over the weekend in Boston, which has seen a sharp rise in gun violence over the past month.
