Massachusetts Medical Society Joins Cheering Section For AG Healey’s Executive Gun Ban

posted on August 11, 2016

As gun owners protest and Second Amendment defenders prepare lawsuits to reverse Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey’s unilateral expansion of the state’s semi-automatic gun ban, the Massachusetts Medical Society has thrown its support behind Healey’s gun ban by decree, MassLive.com reports

In a letter sent to Gov. Charlie Baker and leaders of the Massachusetts House and Senate, Dr. James Gessner, president of the Medical Society, wrote that the group “applauds” Healey for her edict, and claimed in a post on the group’s website that their support “is guided by the principles of reducing the number of deaths, disabilities, and injuries attributable to guns ...” 

That’s ironic, since according to the FBI, the firearms Healey has banned were not used in a single murder in Massachusetts in 2010, or 2011, or 2012, or 2014—the most recent year for which statistics are available. Medical mistakes, by contrast, are the third-leading cause of death in the United States. Medice, cura te ipsum!
