On July 20, 2016 Attorney General Maura Healey announced a deliberate misinterpretation of the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

As a result hundreds of thousands of law-abiding families instantly became “felons in waiting” overnight.

There was no due process, no public input, no members of the legislature debated the issue and the governor never signed it into law.

Families and individuals who lawfully own firearms are now threatened with a ten-year felony charge for owning firearms that were legal the day before her announcement. Hundreds of thousands of these firearms were legally bought and sold for over two decades, and they became illegal overnight. Since 1994, these firearms have been recognized by state and federal law as legal to possess, own, and sell.

Attorney General Healey's actions demonstrated a complete disregard for due process. Her actions were about advancing a political agenda for her personal gain.

No matter how you view firearms ownership, you should be concerned by her action! No single government official should be allowed to reinterpret existing law in a way that endangers hundreds of thousands of families and individuals.

Now, Attorney General Healey is unlawfully hiding information requested over three months ago in a FOIA request.
