Delegation argues Maura Healey’s leadership has already proven effective
Salem, MA – Today, in a Letter to the Editor in The Boston Globe, the Massachusetts Congressional delegation shared its unanimous support for Attorney General Maura Healey’s efforts to enforce our state’s assault weapons ban. The delegation expresses its steadfast support for Healey’s efforts to protect our communities from gun violence.
Here is what they wrote:
To the Editor:
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.
