Okay it's no secret that I'm a huge fan fro the new S&W M&P pistol line, specifically in .40.
The bitch shoots nice like buttah. I've been waiting over a year now to get one in MA.
Today over at Smith & Wesson Forum I come across this thread titled; "9 mm M & P in MA" (Posted 12 March 2007 07:08 PM).
http://smith-wessonforum.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/520103904/m/2211015902/p/1

There in it's the story of a guy like me who wants an M&P, he's a gun loving fool that lives in MA, and he gets owned.

The bottom line is this.
The M&P is available in MA....BUT!!!!!1 It must meet crap ass requirements specific only to the MA atty. generals 'opinion' toward how a firearm should operate as based on their consideration for public safety, or atleast thats how their asinine legality is sold.
Long story short it appears M&P's sold here will be sold with a 10 (ten) pound trigger spring rather than the normal 6lb.version.

Okay I am seriously sick and ftired of this states crap ass ridiculous laws.
This mornign I took my daughter to the pediatrician to get a strep culture check and thumbtacked to the wall in the waiting room was a huge printout statement indicating that as of 1994 it is a law in MA under guise of public safety that all children under the age of 14 must wear a safety helmet when operating a bicycle, skateboard, inline skates, or when throwing paper airplanes!
I'm kidding about the paper airplanes, they just have to wear ANSI Z87.1 'high impact' safety glasses to operate those.

What in the hell?!1

I could get past the idea that a double stack pistol would be artificially hamstrung to a 10 rd. max per magazine. I don't like it and would've preferred to have had a 12 rd. mag like _normal_ or even a 17 rd. mag like the 9MM variant can support.
I could get past having to wait over a year to get what most everyone else in the country can have/own/possess without a problem or shooting their eyes out.

But now this...a 10 lb. trigger!?1
What's the point of that?! Jeez!!

Oh, and if I swap it out _and_ use it as a defensive tool as I'd planned to do for carry purposes _and_ some time aday or ten ears later find myself using it for as much, in MA, guess who will use this as reasonging to throw me in Shawshank?! Yep, the state of MA. Then there would be the civil trial afterward where the 'victims' lawyers Cashsnatch & Moneytayker will say my 'modified' gun was 'rigged' to 'go off easy...or even on it's own!1' and that the death of Ian B. Ehkrook was untimely and wrongful.
That option is a no go just for reasons of common cents alone.

Ugh...
I'm feeling so deflated.
Dude all weekend I was psyched thinking yeah I'm just around the corner from an M&P...finally!
Now I come to find out there are MA specific riggings, serial numbers, and product SKUs...with 10lb. springs.

Atleast my kid has a bike helmet.
Hell I could've found myself assesed a bad parent without it, even as in my whole damn life I've never fallen down muchless off a bike and hit my head...and I've done some sweet ass jumps in my time. :\

Between all this gun so called consumer protection crap, troubles with the MVA, the slow mail service (It takes over a week to get mail that used to take 3 days in VA), and having to still deal with my towns PITA building inspection process I'm beginning to wonder if this move to MA had the stupid.
BTW, MA has now killed off a sale that I had otherwise totally expected and allocated funds toward to a local to me and state based employer.

Way to go Massadamnchusetts!
Thanks for protecting me from myself, I don't know how I'd live without your loser laws. :rolleyes:

Boston's a pretty sweet city and I'll probably have to work there/nearby in a few years but I'm definitely opting for a house in New Hampshire and I'll commute if I have to. MA pansy laws FTMFL!

:( I feel your pain Janq. Maybe someday things will change...

Dude, that's even worse than CA! WTF!?

Dude, have you thought about moving? Arizona is GREAT place (no, its not a desert like most of you think it is)... Mountains, forests, no gun laws (or very little), good people (as long as you stay out of the big ass cities), etc, etc.

I plan on going to AZ sometime in the future... Flagstaff area. Lots of work, lots of land, lots of everthing. :) (And no gun stupid gun laws)

MA is fucked up. I have a feeling MA may have one of the most corrupt and greedy governments in the USA. For a state with ~6.5 million people living there, over $18 billion in tax revenue for 2006 seems a little high.

I'm sure CA is number one though.

Bike helmets are for racing and ramps. The only places I've ever had to wear them were at skateparks and Woodward.

"Cashsnatch & Moneytayker"
I must be easily amused today, this made me laugh out loud. The wife didn't think it was as funny.

Bruce, you are thinking too big for Janq's purposes. He could move right next door to Vermont and enjoy the most relaxed gun laws in the country next to Alaska. At least those are the only 2 states where you don't need a carry permit. I can only assume without actually looking the up, but I'd imagine they are pretty relaxed there. Heck depending on where he lives I bet it work out to not even that bad a commute.
