There are fake equalizers, like affirmative action, and there are real equalizers, like firearms. Ask Dianne Feinstein and many other hypocrite liberals who want your guns confiscated yet carry themselves.good for her defending herself
Its interesting to note the author alludes to the politically correct Ruger - Mini 14, despite the fact that even Maura Healey, by now, has to know, there is not a licks worth of real difference between a Mini 14 and an AR-15. No doubt the author owns one of the good wood stock versions of the Mini and not the bad ,all black, mean looking, synthetic polymer version.On happy nights of writing I like to take a break, walk out in the backyard and squeeze off a dozen or so rounds with the Mini-14 — and don't you dare try and stop me.
A Herald Columnist writing today about Maura Healey's credibility in reference to the recent evidence witholding controversy her office is involved in, says,Does maura ever think about that which is beyond the narrow field of her blinders??
Healey's tendency to cross or fudge the law for political reasons is finally being questioned. Although things may come down to the old, Hillary, Ben Gahzi, defense. Healey is either corrupt as the day is long or she is totally incompetent. It got Hillary off - so far. Its also not clear, at this point, if Healey's office can shield her from prosecution. One thing is clear. Healey, like Coakley before her, is pure politician in an office where that trait could be put to a great deal of abuse and damage."Who you going to believe, the politician or the judge"
Even the priests are packing, expecting a threat. Edgy fear prevails, thanks NRA...A North Carolina priest may want to practice what he preaches.
William Rian Adams, 35, was arrested in connection with a road rage incident on Florida's Turnpike near Palm City Wednesday after pulling out a gun, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
According to an FHP report, Adams -- a priest at Calvary Episcopal Church in Fletcher, N.C. -- was driving a red Chevrolet Corvette when he "attempted to brake-check" another vehicle, a Chevrolet Silverado pick-up truck, that was closely following his Corvette.
"As the victim attempted to pass the Corvette, the driver [Adams] pointed a semi-automatic hand gun at them," read the report
The occupants of the pick-up truck were a man, 24, and a woman, 54, from St. Cloud, Florida.
The gun, a Glock 22, was taken to the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office and submitted as evidence.
After the victim and Adams were interviewed by FHP officers, Adams was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
And Donald Trump too. He must have had something to do with it - somehow - no doubt.Edgy fear prevails, thanks NRA...
To suppose arms in the hands of citizens, to be used at individual discretion, except in private self - defense, or by partial orders of towns, counties, or districts of state, is to demolish every constitution and lay the law prostrate so that liberty can be enjoyed by no man; it is a dissolution of government. The fundamental law of the militia is that it be created, and directed, and commanded by the laws, and ever for the support of the laws.
John Adams "A defense of the Constitution"
I wonder if Maura Healey knows who John Adams is?
http://www.nationalreview.com/article/4 ... d-americaDuring Barack Obama’s presidency, the number of concealed-carry permit holders increased by a whopping 256 percent. The numbers have increased across multiple demographics, with a higher percentage growth for women than men and for black citizens than white. In eleven states at least 10 percent of the adults possess carry permits. All told, 16.36 million Americans have carry permits, a number that understates the amount of people who carry weapons, since 14 states “have adopted constitutional carry in all or part of the state” — which means that no permit is required for citizens to carry a gun.
No fooling??During Barack Obama’s presidency, the number of concealed-carry permit holders increased by a whopping 256 percent
Wow! A "well regulated militia" just waiting to happen!" This is exciting!All told, 16.36 million Americans have carry permits, a number that understates the amount of people who carry weapons, since 14 states “have adopted constitutional carry in all or part of the state” — which means that no permit is required for citizens to carry a gun.
The left knows fully well the carnage it would initiate in attempting to disarm the American people, either overtly or covertly. Yet it persists. That fact has to beg the question - WHY? Why on Earth would the left risk starting a civil war if not the fact it just plain hates America?At the same time that carry permits have increased at an astonishing rate, violent crime has decreased, and concealed-carry permit holders remain remarkably law-abiding. From 2007 to 2015, murder rates decreased by 12.5 percent and “overall violent crime fell by 18 percent.” At the same time, “the percentage of adults with permits soared by 190 percent.” And yet despite that growth, available data still indicate that permit holders are substantially more law-abiding than the police. For example, using data from Florida and Texas, Lott found that “permit holders are convicted of misdemeanors and felonies at less than a sixth of the rate for police officers.”
It’s often said that politics is downstream from culture, and for conservatives those words so often mean that we’re losing ground. The ground is shifting beneath our feet on matters involving sexuality and marriage. But the news is not all bad, and culture change does not always run to the left. The pro-life movement stands strong, and the ground is shifting beneath progressives’ feet on guns. An armed citizenry is more likely to remain a free citizenry, and free citizens are more likely to maintain the independence and courage that have long been hallmarks of the American spirit. In this important respect our nation is changing for the better — one carry permit at a time.
Then there's this... Healey's office again accused of withholding evidence“One reason we’re supporting him — he’s conservative,” Daxland told the News Service about McMahon.
Though MARA does not officially endorse candidates until they have qualified for the ballot, Daxland said that McMahon believes in the same “common sense principles” that the assembly stands for, including adherence to the Second Amendment and opposition to making Massachusetts a “sanctuary state,” an idea that is opposed by conservatives who favor a stricter stance against illegal immigration.
"Apologize"! She should resign!! This looks like a developing pattern of corruption.Hughes on Thursday interpreted the news, in a press release issued by MassGOP, as an example of “concealing evidence” and a “cover up” of mistakes in the drug lab scandal, the consequences of which, she said, “could lead ‘thousands’ of convicted drug dealers being freed.”
“The only thing worse than the gross incompetence of Maura Healey’s office during this case is her office’s effort to deceive the public and cover up mistakes. With thousands more drug cases now tainted due to the AGO’s inability to own up to its errors, Healey should apologize for her office’s misconduct that could have lasting and dangerous consequences for our state’s criminal justice system.”
Mass. AG Healey directed to revise response to ‘copycat’ weapon ban information requestIn explaining her decision not to release certain materials to Reinhart, Tarrow cited several public records exemptions, including statutes dealing with the “deliberative process” exemption and a claim that releasing such records “relating to the security or safety of persons or buildings within the commonwealth, where public safety is likely to be jeopardized.”
Reinhart in his appeal argued that the deliberation process ended after Healey issued the order, meaning the exemption should no longer apply.
Wow, she's tough. 300 million guns and counting...doesn't she look at the stats? She could focus on safety, sportsmanship, citizenship, recreational shooting, hunting...nah, gotta keep the right wing whine going, ad nauseous...
NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch.
Another inflammatory video from the National Rife Association went viral Friday afternoon.
In a short video, NRA spokesperson and conservative firebrand Dana Loesch threatened a "laser-focus" on the New York Times, dubbing the paper "pretentious" and "tone-deaf" without specifying what issues the NRA has with the Times' reporting.
"We've had it with your narratives, your propaganda, your fake news," Loesch said. "We've had it with your constant protection of your Democrat overlords, your refusal to acknowledge any truth that upsets the fragile construct that you believe is real life."
"Consider this the shot across your proverbial bow," she added. "We've going to fisk the New York Times and find out just what deep, rich means to this old, gray hag."
The 54-second clip, which was released in April, was reposted on the NRA's social media account on Thursday, but went largely unnoticed until Friday afternoon.
The ad sparked backlash on social media, as critics said the video had a threatening tone.
Maura Healey will clean up Massachusetts? Is that what all this is?Healey said she has been doing town-hall meetings across the state. "Now more than ever" it is important for Americans to come out for discussions on these topics.
She said she is encouraged by the "tremendous" public engagement she has seen since November. "This is a really, really good thing. It's not just a moment. It's a movement," she told the audience that filled the school's auditorium.
Maura will uphold her version of the law even if she has to break the law to do it.But gun rights advocates were also in the audience. One challenged her action last July to include in the state's assault weapons ban any copies or duplicates of banned guns.
She explained that the state has had an assault weapons ban since 1998. It is the law, and it was written to cover any future updates and additions to the list. "I will uphold yhe law"
Anyone running for Attorney General against Maura may be interested...Charge her criminally under 18 U.S. Code § 241 – Conspiracy Against Rights – and § 242 – Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law, and sue her in her personal capacity under 42 U.S. Code § 1983 – Civil Action for Deprivation of Rights.
Maybe that will get her attention.
So many of Maura Healey's actions as Massachusetts Attorney General , intended to thrive in a far different political climate, will now just amount to a huge economic burden for the state. Exxon is just one of many illbegotten lawsuits scheduled to come back and bite The Commonwealth , not Maura personally, right in the butt. We have to ask ourselves where will we be after another four years of this kind of fearless progressive litigation.It appears that Maura’s “irony police” missed this one. On July 20, 2016, Healey
“pulled the rug out from under” gun owners and retailers with no notice or public discussion
by announcing she was reinterpreting 18 years of gun laws “that had been carefully crafted
and worked on” by the Legislature many times. Her actions were “unfair, and make no
sense” as there has only been a dozen or so deaths by all rifles in Massachusetts going
back more than a decade.
Oh The Irony!!If it can be established Schneiderman essentially deputized green groups to form a
politically motivated case, his federal suit against Exxon Mobil could be thrown out, and its
countersuit against him for harassment would get a major boost.
Some think Schneiderman already has crossed the line. In March, the attorneys general of
11 states wrote a friend of the court brief in which they accused Schneiderman and Maura
Healey, attorney general of Massachusetts, of "an unconstitutional abuse of investigative power" and "textbook viewpoint discrimination.
5 Investigates' Mike Beaudet found, through a series of public records requests,
records of nearly two dozen immunity agreements, known as Carney letters, given to
police officers across the state in the last five years. But the system for keeping track of
these cases is disorganized, making it likely there are still more immunity deals that have
been cut. Supporters of these agreements, including Attorney General Maura Healey, say they are a
way for police departments to investigate suspected police wrongdoing when the case is
not prosecutable or the officer plans to invoke his or her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.
So what legally separates these law officers from an A.G. - who is supposedly the chief law officer in the state? If she did not know of the pending consequences of actions such as the Gun Ban she certainly must know now. It is scary to speculate if maybe she doesn't. It's scarier yet to speculate where we will be in 2020."Is this treatment special treatment for officers?" Beaudet asked AG Healey.
"No. To the contrary, I think all of these situations are taken very seriously," Healey replied.
Carney is actually a way to hold police officers accountable for alleged wrongdoing when there isn't a way to proceed criminally against that officer.
According to Reuters sources, aides to President Donald Trump - which these days mostly includes retired army generals - are completing a plan to shift oversight of international non-military firearms sales from the State Department to the Commerce Department. The difference is that while the State Department is primarily concerned about international threats to stability and maintains tight restrictions on weapons deals, the Commerce Department typically focuses more on facilitating trade, in other words growing it.
“The NSC is working through the interagency process with the State Department and the Department of Commerce to ensure that U.S. industries have every advantage in the global marketplace, while at the same time ensuring the responsible export of arms,” said an official with the White House National Security Council.
And that's how Trump repays the NRA for its support during his campaign: the National Rifle Association spent more than $30 million in support of his candidacy. “I am going to come through for you,” Trump told the NRA convention in April.
He now has.
The new rules will reportedly cut government red tape and regulatory costs, boosting U.S. exports of small arms and creating jobs at home.
“There will be more leeway to do arms sales,” one senior administration official said. “You could really turn the spigot on if you do it the right way.”
The push fits both Trump’s support for the gun lobby espoused on the campaign trail and his “Buy American” agenda.
Critics, among them lawmakers and arms control advocates, have expressed concern that any easing of export rules could make powerful weapons of the type often used in U.S. mass shootings more accessible to criminal gangs and militants that Trump has vowed to fight. Of course, Trump has also vowed to stimulate the economy and having failed to do so so far, will take whatever he can get.
Millions looking to these companies for news. Bad business, bad journalism, lots of bad information. And like mass killings, this won’t stop.When they woke up and glanced at their phones on Monday morning, Americans may have been shocked to learn that the man behind the mass shooting in Las Vegas late on Sunday was an anti-Trump liberal who liked Rachel Maddow and MoveOn.org, that the F.B.I. had already linked him to the Islamic State, and that mainstream news organizations were suppressing that he had recently converted to Islam.
They were shocking, gruesome revelations. They were also entirely false — and widely spread by Google and Facebook.
In Google’s case, trolls from 4Chan, a notoriously toxic online message board with a vocal far-right contingent, had spent the night scheming about how to pin the shooting on liberals. One of their discussion threads, in which they wrongly identified the gunman, was picked up by Google’s “top stories” module, and spent hours at the top of the site’s search results for that man’s name.
In Facebook’s case, an official “safety check” page for the Las Vegas shooting prominently displayed a post from a site called “Alt-Right News.” The post incorrectly identified the shooter and described him as a Trump-hating liberal. In addition, some users saw a story on a “trending topic” page on Facebook for the shooting that was published by Sputnik, a news agency controlled by the Russian government. The story’s headline claimed, incorrectly, that the F.B.I. had linked the shooter with the “Daesh terror group.”
Are you speaking of main street media, NYT, rolling stones or what??Bad business, bad journalism, lots of bad information. And like mass killings, this won’t stop.
No. Read it again, slowly this time.Are you speaking of main street media, NYT, rolling stones or what??
Good, keep em coming... Try downing the bad guys for a change ya dumb skull!!Facts? 300 million guns and counting.

Facts? 300 million guns and counting. 100 or so killed by guns every day. No appetite for change, not even reinstating the ban on military style weapons. We all need AR-15's right?
Democrats saying stupid stuff all the time. What a gift HC is to the right, human lightning rod...
The only thing the right has is fake moments of silence for the dead and the left is full of emotional basket cases. Pathetic.
This is over. new solution: no gun laws whatsoever. Prove you're 18 and not crazy, you can buy anything. it's the right's wet dream come true.Why pretend there's any middle ground on anything anymore? The repubs can't do anything about health care, immigration, roads and bridges, foreign policy. Zip. It's stupid to think they will get anything done resembling anything sensible around solving mass killings.
Not gonna happen.
Open carry anything, guns in church, in preschool, everywhere. Why not?
With all their twists . turns, convolutions, spins, lies, omissions, fantasies, and tangents only a liberal can start out walking and, in the end, find themselves farther away from their goal. The truth does matter.There are lies, damn lies and gun statistics — particularly in the hands of a Massachusetts liberal.
Within hours of the horrific shooting in Las Vegas, the writers at The Boston Globe-Democrat hit their function keys and out came the usual knee-jerk, fact-challenged, anti-gun puffery. One piece took the local angle: “Making Gun Safety A State Fight, Too.”
The tip-off to anti-gun bias is in the headline. As Molly Hooper, appearing on CBS News, put it, “Gun safety is the new term the Democrats are using. Instead of ‘gun control’ it’s ‘gun safety.’ ”
Yes, the left is burying “gun control” in the same rhetorical black hole as “global warming,” and for the same reason: They’re losing.
Is it because blue state liberals don’t understand the gun issue, or they’re just incapable of being honest about it? Consider this from the Globe-Democrat:
Massachusetts is regularly one of the states with the lowest rates of gun deaths from either homicides or suicides. “We are the NRA’s worst nightmare,” said John Rosenthal, co-founder of Stop Handgun Violence. “We have proven that gun laws work.”
It is true that Massachusetts is “one of the states” with low gun-death rates. According to the FBI’s Unified Crime Report for 2015, Massachusetts has the 7th-lowest murder/non-negligent homicide rate, behind states like New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine, and tied with Idaho.
You know what those other states also have in common — besides a lower murder rate than Massachusetts? Pro-Second Amendment gun laws.
These states all make it easier to buy and own guns. They all have “constitutional carry” laws making it legal to carry a handgun without an additional license. They are so non-Boston-Globe-compliant that they got graded either D or F by the pro-gun-control … er “gun safety” organization, the Law Center To Prevent Gun Violence.
Ah, but that’s the overall murder rate, Graham, not the gun homicide rate the Globies are talking about. Oh, OK. Using that metric, Massachusetts drops to 13th, behind such stalwarts of blue state gun restrictionism as the Dakotas, Iowa and West Virginia.
(For any Globe readers who might be confused, that was sarcasm.)
In their push to get Massachusetts to add even more gun laws, the Globe claims that “seven of the 10 states with the strictest gun laws also make the list of the 10 states with the fewest gun deaths per 100,000.” But they get this stat from the aforementioned anti-gun group.
According to the CDC’s latest available data, 2014, only one of the top 10 states got better than a C from the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence (Hawaii with an A-), and eight have either D or F ratings.
If you find these statistics confusing, imagine how poor Leah Libresco feels? She’s a former statistician with the respected FiveThirtyEight.com data research group. As she wrote in The Washington Post this week, she began her research “analyzing all 33,000 lives ended by guns each year” with a pro-gun control bias. Alas, she discovered that “the case for the policies I’d lobbied for crumbled when I examined the evidence.”
“By the time we published, I didn’t believe in many of the [anti-gun] interventions I’d heard politicians tout,” she wrote. “I can’t endorse policies whose only selling point is that gun owners hate them.”
Don’t worry, Leah. Maybe you can’t, but Massachusetts liberals sure can.
So Healey refers to illegal aliens or Dreamers as "our residents". Healey would be a much better Attorney General if she had a broader view of just who "our residents" are. I just wish it included me“As long as this president or anyone else wants to threaten our interests or our residents, we’re going to keep using the Constitution to stand up to them,” Healey said.
Healey’s speech was part of Smith’s observance of Constitution Day, and she repeatedly noted the power of “one of the greatest documents in world history.”
“It’s a document that lives and breathes,” said Healey, saying that what makes the document special were the values and the principles that each generation “breathes into it.”But of course it wasn't struck down by the courts.Good Grief! There are not many on the planet who have displayed more contempt of the Constitution than Maura Healey and her progressives. This will be obvious as so many of her litigations against Trump and other interests fall to ashes at her feet. If only Hillary had been elected.Now where exactly is Maura going with this. It is true California is making noises about succession and her own state Massachusetts is only just behind California progressiveness. Is 50 strong city states better than one strong United States. I truly believe Maura believes it is. Why doesn't she just come out and say that? Well, of course , we know why. This is someone who does not believes in a strong United States but is merely paying lip service to the idea of the Constitution - as shiftless Democrates are wont to do..While acknowledging that the Constitution “is not perfect,” Healey explained how its equal protection clause had been successfully used to challenge DOMA and get it ruled unconstitutional.DOMA defined marriage as the union of one man and one woman under federal law, and made it so states without same-sex marriage did not have to recognize the legality of same-sex marriages performed in states where it was legal.Maura should think of this when she attends rallies to encourage seven year olds to become transgenderMuch of the 26-minute speech was devoted to criticizing Trump and his policies, with Healey accusing him of bragging about assaulting women, taking issue with a number of his cabinet appointees and slamming him for his repeal of DACA, or Deferred Actions on Childhood Arrivals, which she characterized as an attack on Americans. DACA protects hundreds of thousands of young non-citizens who were brought to the United States when they were children from deportation.Maura was speaking at Snith College.“Even I didn’t think it would be so soon or so often,” said Healey, which drew another round of applause.
Healey pointed to her office’s efforts in fighting both iterations of executive orders restricting travel from a number of Muslim-majority countries, which she characterized as Muslim bans, and spoke about speaking to a professor, originally from Iran, who was detained as a result of the first order in January.
“Once again the Constitution was there for us,” said Healey, noting how the first executive order was struck down in the courts.
Richard Nixon broke the law. Maura wouls have served us all much better by coming out and being specific how Donald Trump has broken the law. And as far as recruiting Barbara Jordon... Maura ought to consider the difference between Senator Jordon's perspective and that of gimme girl Maxine Waters
