The site reports Greenfield said “State law requires Massachusetts
gun owners to keep their firearms locked away or rendered inoperable.”
There are “600 registered gun owners in [Swampscott],” and the selectman
“wants police to be able to drop in unannounced, enter the homes of
each gun owner, and verify compliance.”
The statist Boston Globe had already raced to the selectman’s defense
by then, of course, whining on Nov. 13 that the poor fellow was being
singled out for abuse by gun nuts after an innocent inquiry.
“A brief discussion during a meeting last week of the Swampscott
Board of Selectmen has sparked outrage among gun-rights proponents and
turned one selectman into the target of vitriolic e-mails, threatening
phone calls, and online petitions from across the nation calling for his
resignation,” the Globe reported.
