BREAKING: Attorney General Declares AR-15s ILLEGAL, It’s Already Begun
This is what happens when liberals don't get their way the first time. They decide that the rules and laws that govern all of us don't apply to them and they just change them so they can get what they want.
That's exactly what their doing now in Massachusetts. Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey recently wrote an op-ed in the Boston Globe flabbergasted that people are still allowed to purchase semi-automatic AR-15-style rifles in her state even though there is an "assault weapons" ban.
She called it a "loophole" that gun manufacturers "exploited" in order to keep selling these "weapons of war" that were used only a couple times in a few infamous shootings. She said absolutely nothing about the handguns being use to kill thousands every year.
Outraged at this 'outrageous' "loophole" that had been left open, the Attorney General did what every good progressive liberal would do and just reinterpret and rewrite the laws.
"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," said Healey in a letter that she 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," Healey wrote. "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."
She ended her nonsensical liberal tirade with this pretentious bit, "if Congress won’t act, we must," as if she feels that it is her 'moral duty to humanity.'
With this outrageous and unconstitutional gun grab she has now made it open season on any gun with basic operating systems, which, news flash is a vast majority of them. You may expect her to be taking a lot more than just the scary AK-47-type and AR-15-style rifles that she is talking about now.
She's gone way over the line and needs a serious reality check. Let's see how long it takes for her to be put in her place by some massive lawsuit.
Please share this on facebook and make sure these liberal gun grabbers don't get away with this pathetic behavior.
