Lexington, Massachusetts is a landmark in American history since it was the first place shots were fired in the Revolutionary War. Unfortunately, the town is now facing a completely different kind of revolution, and this one is anything but good.
According to Young Conservatives, the town of Lexington holds an annual town meeting to set policy, bylaws and approve things like the town budget. The residents of the town do not vote directly, however, as they are instead represented by 200 “town meeting members” who vote in their place.
One town meeting member, Harvard professor Robert Rotberg, has made a big move to enact what he hopes will be “a movement against assault weapons that would capture the state and therefore maybe explode to reach the country.” Basically copying a similar gun ban recently enacted in Highland Park, IL, Rotberg has drawn up his own ban and presented it to the town as Article 34.
Article 34 bans any firearm that is semi-automatic and can accept a magazine that will hold more than 10 rounds. It also bans any magazine that holds more than 10 rounds, and includes a provision that would force Lexington’s licensed gun owners who own these weapons to either sell them, render them inoperable, or have them seized and destroyed by the police department.
The town of Lexington will discuss this article and then vote on it on March 21st at their annual town meeting. If it is passed, liberals around the country will definitely try to enact unconstitutional bans like this in their towns as well.
