58 Legislators have signed a letter expressing their strong opposition to AG Healey’s insane re-interpretation. The text of the letter can be read here (PDF)
I’m also very pleasantly surprised that 18 of those Signatures were Democrats, so while AG Healey is far from a pariah here in Mass, but she also doesn’t have the full strength of the party behind her….and party lockstep, in a state like this, is the rule, not the exception, for both parties.
So read the whole thing, but I’ll toss in the money quote for those who don’t have time right this moment.
For the last 18 years, the law has been implemented and enforced consistently, both by your office and your predecessors. Your new directive, which has been presented by your office as nothing more than a closing of “loopholes” in the current law, appears in fact to be much more than that: the enforcement of a whole new law that unfairly infringes on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners in Massachusetts.
One must argue, if Gun control is so popular, why do they need to go to such lengths, and abandon all ethics to expand gun control laws? In what is a massively anti-gun state!
