Gun Group Sues MA AG Over Unilateral Assault Weapons Ban


Posted by Fuzzy Slippers September 25, 2016 at 6:00pm

The AG’s “changes are overly broad, vague, and unconstitutional”

In July, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey issued a statement in which she announced her unilateral ban on “assault weapons,” including “copycat assault weapons.”


On Thursday, the Washington Free Beacon reports, “the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the largest trade association in the firearms industry, in conjunction with four Massachusetts gun dealers filed the suit against Attorney General Maura Healey (D.) in response to her attempt to redefine the state’s assault weapons ban.”


The Washington Free Beacon continues:


Healey announced on July 20 that she was officially reinterpreting the language of the state’s decades-old ban. She said she would be vastly expanding what constitutes a so-called “copycat” of guns that are explicitly banned under the statute and accused the gun industry of skirting the law for years.


“The gun industry has openly defied our laws here in Massachusetts for nearly two decades,” Healey said in her announcement. “That ends today. We have a moral and legal responsibility to ensure that combat-style weapons are off our streets and out of the hands of those who would use them to kill innocent people.” Scissors-32x32.png
