As a poster noted on the original page, this is probably not the right time to hit the "Red Alert" button on those bills; there are an amazing number of really stupid bills proposed to legislatures all the time. This bill is going to the Judiciary committee (http://www.mass.gov/legis/comm/j19.htm). Going up in arms about this bill before its first committee hearing is probably just going to desensitize the representatives to such comments. The only time I'd write in about a bill in this early stage is if my representative was on the committee, and if it seemed like the bill was trying to sneak something past them, or was about a technical topic where I'd have reason to think I was a more qualified expert than my rep was. That's not the case here, so I'd suggest holding off on the letter-writing until/unless one of these bills fails to get laughed off the floor on the first read.
