Massachusetts: Contact Legislators – Support Bill Challenging Gun Ban
Massachusetts Action Needed: Contact your Legislators in Support of Bills to Challenge AG Healey’s Gun Ban
By NRA-ILA: Support Bill Challenging Gun Ban. Both S.1322 and S.1316 seek to challenge the gun ban set forth last summer by Attorney General Healey’s “enforcement notice,” which greatly expands the Commonwealth’s definition of “assault weapon.” AG Healey alleges that the state’s definition of “copy” or “duplicate” “assault weapons” has been misinterpreted for the last 18 years and she is simply the first law enforcement official to discover this incorrect interpretation. In response, several legislators wrote a letter to AG Healey voicing their strong opposition. S.1322 and S.1316 take their opposition a step further by challenging AG Healey’s unilateral decision making through legislation. Both of these bills are currently pending in the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security.
