Gun Owners Roll To Protest Massachusetts Ban Expansion

posted on August 30, 2016

About 150 law-abiding Massachusetts gun owners took their protest of Attorney General Maura Healey’s unilateral addition of hundreds of formerly legal rifles to the banned list on the road last weekend.

According to the Boston Herald, the participants loaded cars, trucks and motorcycles and had a 55-mile rolling rally, traveling from Minute Man Sportsman’s Club in Burlington to the Hanson Rod and Gun Club, carrying signs such as “Tyranny—It’s Back.”

As we have covered in detail, in late July Healey issued a so-called “enforcement notice” to firearm dealers in the Bay State in which she unilaterally announced that, effective immediately, sales of semi-automatic rifles that were perfectly legal in the state one day would be illegal the next. In other words, Healey simply redefined the law—at whim and at will by executive fiat—to mean whatever she says it means.
