In a recent op-ed for the Boston Globe, the Obama-loving Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey lamented that people are still able to buy AR-15-style semi-automatic rifles in her state despite an “assault weapons” ban.
In her ridiculous piece, Healey slammed what she called a “loophole” that has been “exploited” by gun manufacturers to continue selling the murderous “weapons of war” which have been used a handful of times in mass shootings. According to Conservative Tribune, she went on to say that her state placed a ban on the sale of AR-15 and AK-47-type “assault weapons,” as well as any “copy/duplicate” of those style of guns. She also chastised the gun manufacturers for having the audacity to produce, market and sell “state compliant” rifles that met the arbitrary requirements of the ban that she herself admitted had little impact on the gun’s lethality.
The Attorney General then said she would make the classic liberal move of reinterpreting the law on her own to close this terrible “loophole.”
“On Wednesday, we are sending a directive to all gun manufacturers and dealers that makes clear that the sale of these copycat assault weapons is illegal in Massachusetts,” Healey wrote. “With this directive, we will ensure we get the full protection intended when lawmakers enacted our assault weapons ban, not the watered-down version of those protections offered by gun manufacturers.”
“The directive specifically outlines two tests to determine what constitutes a ‘copy’ or ‘duplicate’ of a prohibited weapon,” she continued. “If a gun’s operating system is essentially the same as that of a banned weapon, or if the gun has components that are interchangeable with those of a banned weapon, it’s a ‘copy’ or ‘duplicate,’ and it is illegal.”
Healey concluded by saying that “if Congress won’t act, we must” because of some “moral obligation” that Obama has been whining about for seven years.
These kind of op-eds remind us that the Second Amendment is in grave danger in Obama’s America. SHARE this story if you stand by our constitutional right to bear arms!
