Massachusetts State Troopers who were fired from the statewide police force after refusing the accept the COVID-19 jab lost more than their jobs, with the head of the state police unilaterally issuing an order to revoke their 2nd Amendment rights to carry a firearm and threatening to imprison those who disobey him.
Thirteen Massachusetts State Troopers were fired from the state police force earlier this year after refusing to accept the COVID-19 jab, in an instance of medical tyranny that closely resembles those that have played out time and time again nationwide. Far beyond losing their jobs, the troopers lost a critical chunk of their 2nd Amendment rights as well, according to a letter sent out by Massachusetts State Police Colonel Christopher Mason.
Under Mason’s orders, which took effect in July, Massachusetts State Troopers who were fired for refusing the COVID-19 jab will see their License to Carry Firearms expire, and it won’t be renewed. Police officers and gun rights activist groups have slammed the anti-2nd Amendment enhancement to COVID-19 punishments, and question its legality.
“Please be advised that effective July 6, 2022, your Massachusetts State Police issued License to Carry Firearms…will be expired by the MSP and will not be renewed,” the letter, which was sent out on June 20th and obtained by local media, reportedly reads.
“You will no longer be permitted to have firearms, rifles, shotguns, machine guns, large capacity feeding devices, and ammunition in your possession,” the letter goes on to state, laying out numerous ways Mason is shredding the 2nd Amendment rights of his own police force comrades. “Possession of a firearm and/or ammunition without an LTC is a criminal offense,” he wrote, typing the term “criminal offense” in bold font.
Mason goes on to write that the troopers impacted by his order can transfer their weapons to a “person who is lawfully licensed to take possession” of them, or “surrender them” to their “local police department.”
According to Massachusetts media reports, all of the troopers fired under the vaccine mandate issued by left-wing Republican Governor Charlie Baker sought exemptions, but were denied, even under religious pretenses.
Under the mandate, those who refuse the vaccine are ordered by Governor Baker to face “progressive discipline up to and including termination.”
The anti-2nd Amendment actions of the Massachusetts State Police and its unelected leader, Colonel Mason, run completely contrary to the actions of many American Sheriffs, who are constitutionally elected by the people they vow to serve and protect.
As unelected bureaucrats and anti-2nd Amendment politicians prepare for a crackdown on the constitutionally protected rights of gun owners, American Sheriffs are vowing to defend the US Constitution, digging their heels into the dirt as they face down federal and state attacks on the 2nd Amendment and the most sacred rights of the American people.

Massachusetts GOP Governor Charlie Baker, who installed the state’s Draconian COVID jab mandate, isn’t seeking re-election, and a groundswell of grassroots support for the America First movement has led to pro-Trump candidate Geoff Diehl winning the Republican Party’s gubernatorial nomination.
