He's the founder of Stop Handgun Violence, one of the more extreme anti-gun groups in the nation. That group is responsible for most of Massachusetts' draconian gun laws.
He was also instrumental in helping to found the "American Hunters and Shooters Association," which appears to me to be a front group for a bunch of gun-control lobbyists. The AHSA supports outlawing Ruger mini-14's, AR-15's, etc. as "assault weapons," outlawing all shotguns holding over 5 shells, all pistols and rifles over 10 rounds, rifle stocks with protruding handgrips, etc. etc. etc. Basically the entire agenda of the Brady Campaign, repackaged under a "hunting" facade.
BTW, that writeup is BS; Massachusetts does NOT have the lowest homicide rate in the nation. Last time I checked, there were several states with lower crime rates than Mass., and all of them were a lot more pro-gun. :D
