Congressional delegation backs enforcement of assault weapons ban
We are proud to stand united in our support for Attorney General Maura Healey as she courageously works to enforce the assault weapons ban.
Maura Healey is not creating new laws. She is enforcing a law the state legislature put on the books nearly 20 years ago to protect our communities from gun violence. And, as Attorney General, she has that authority and responsibility.
Massachusetts has already seen a decline in assault weapon sales and significant compliance by manufacturers and gun dealers since the announcement. Healey’s leadership is making our communities safer.
Furthermore, the hateful rhetoric used against her is disgraceful and does nothing to further the debate or make our communities better. Hate speech has no place in our Commonwealth.
