Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey penned an article for The Boston Globe stating that she is banning all new “assault weapons” which she also calls “weapons of war” in her ignorance.
In the article for The Boston Globe, she blamed the Orlando terrorist killings on an AR-15 which isn’t accurate on any level.
Her ban prohibits the sale of specific weapons like the Colt AR-15 and AK-47 and explicitly bans “copies or duplicates” of those weapons. Gun manufacturers have been selling rifles without a flash suppressor or folding or telescoping stock and she defines them as a copycat or duplicate.
Healey has made them illegal as well as any “watered-down version”.
If the gun operates in essentially the same way as a banned weapon or is a copy, it is illegal. No “assault” weapon can be sold, altered or not.
This directive likely bans all AR and AK style rifles in Massachusetts.
People who already own the guns can keep them – for now – the AG assures them. How kind of her.
Healey claims that: In the face of utter inaction by Congress, states have a duty to enact and enforce laws that protect people from gun violence. If Washington won’t use its power to get these guns off our streets, we will. Not only do we have the legal authority to do so, we have a moral obligation to do so.
She has a moral obligation to uphold the Constitution and she has no legal right to pass laws which is what she is doing.
What she is doing doesn’t do a thing about the criminals and gangs. All she is controlling are lawful gun owners. The leftists always say they want guns off the streets and she also says that in this article. To get the guns off the streets, they have to go after guns, lawful guns period.
We now have evidence of contacts between Saudi officials and some of the September 11 hijackers. An old classified document has been declassified. On an equally, if not more important and current matter, what about the evidence of contacts between the Obama White House and the pro-terrorist Muslim Brotherhood? When will we be given a declassified copy of Obama’s Presidential Study Directive-11, or PSD-11, regarding the secret White House backing of the Muslim Brotherhood?
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has proposed a bill to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. It’s called the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act (S.2230).
On another equally, if not more important and current matter, what about Obama White House contacts with the Black Lives Matter movement (BLM), a support apparatus for cop-killers?
It would appear that the Obama administration may be implicated for its support for terrorism at home and abroad. This comes on top of the evidence that Obama and his then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton supported jihadist groups in Libya that killed four Americans in Benghazi.

WASHINGTON — GOP lawmakers are asking for a freeze on transfers from Guantanamo Bay and more information about past transfers after one detainee released to Uruguay went missing and another was named a Specially Designated Global Terrorist by the State Department.
As Congress blocks President Obama’s efforts to close the prison facility, the White House is trying to quickly deplete Gitmo’s population. The transfer of two detainees to Serbia was announced Monday, bringing the population down to 76. There were 242 terror suspects at Guantanamo when Obama took office.
On Wednesday, the State Department issued the designations of Aslan Avgazarovich Byutukaev, the ISIS leader in Chechnya, and Ayrat Nasimovich Vakhitov, a Tatar fighter from Russia.
“Vakhitov is associated with Jaysh al-Muhajirin Wal Ansar, a group that was designated by the U.S. Department of State as a SDGT under Executive Order 13224. Vakhitov has also used the internet to recruit militants to travel to Syria,” the State Department said.
Vakhitov was released to Russia along with six of his countrymen in 2004. The Russians later released the former detainees. Vakhitov threatened afterward that he would sue the U.S. for torture at Gitmo.
Omar Mateen was a registered Democrat who slaughtered people because of their extreme religious views. Anyone who concentrates on guns or calls it a hate crime is conning us. It these radical Islamic monsters didn’t have guns [though they could always get guns] they’d use pressure cookers and swords.
Even Donald Trump is potentially buying into the gun argument and is planning to discuss banning people on the terror watch list with the NRA. I don’t think Trump will cave but he needs to bring the conversation back to terrorism.
We are happy to meet with Donald Trump. The NRA’s position on this issue has not changed. The NRA believes that terrorists should not be allowed to purchase or possess firearms, period. Anyone on a terror watchlist who tries to buy a gun should be thoroughly investigated by the FBI and the sale delayed while the investigation is ongoing. If an investigation uncovers evidence of terrorist activity or involvement, the government should be allowed to immediately go to court, block the sale, and arrest the terrorist. At the same time, due process protections should be put in place that allow law-abiding Americans who are wrongly put on a watchlist to be removed. That has been the position of Sen. John Cornyn (R.-Tex.) and a majority of the U.S. Senate. Sadly, President Obama and his allies would prefer to play politics with this issue.
The insanity continues and it’s beyond belief. They are going to take our guns when radical Islamic terrorism is the problem. Any excuse to take our rights. Just remember that if we lose one of the Amendments, they will all fall.
Secure Freedom Minute
Nearly a year has passed since the Obama administration finished negotiating its so-called “nuclear deal” with Iran. In recent weeks, we have learned that the administration deliberately lied to us about the nature and implications of this terrible agreement.
What has now become clear is that a taxpayer-funded media organization helped in this effort to propagandize and mislead the American people. As the Algemeiner newspaper reported recently, even National Public Radio’s own in-house monitor, Ombudsman Elizabeth Jensen, has acknowledged that the network took $700,000 from one of the Iran deal’s most aggressive promoters: the Ploughshares Fund. And NPR gave what amounted to overwhelmingly preferential on-air treatment to Ploughshares-associated advocates for the accord.
Congress must investigate the role played by the Obama administration, by taxpayer-subsidized public radio and by a tax-exempt charity to disinform us and perpetrate national security fraud.
The astronomical re-offense rate of the predators the president sets loose in our communities.
Family Security Matters

On June 4, 2016 the Boston Globe published a report, “Criminal immigrants reoffend at higher rates than ICE has suggested,” that focused on information the newspaper was finally able to obtain by filing a lawsuit under the Freedom of Information Act that sought to obtain the database of criminal aliens who were released by ICE. The roughly five-year odyssey finally yielded the information the administration attempted to conceal from the public, including, incredibly, even law enforcement agencies.
The article included the links to the Timeline of the Globe’s lawsuit. It’s nearly a five-year saga.
This eye-opening report began with this excerpt:
They were among the nation’s top priorities for deportation, criminals who were supposed to be sent back to their home countries. But instead they were released, one by one, in secret across the United States. Federal officials said that many of the criminals posed little threat to the public, but did little to verify whether that was true.
A Globe review of 323 criminals released in New England from 2008 to 2012 found that as many as 30 percent committed new offenses, including rape, attempted murder, and child molestation – a rate that is markedly higher than Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials have suggested to Congress in the past.

The “Chinagate” fundraising scandal plagued the 1996 Bill Clinton-Al Gore campaign and Hillary was very much involved. Chinagate aka Commercegate is the most serious scandal in U.S. history. It involves the transfer of America’s most sensitive technology, including but not limited to nuclear missile and satellite technology, apparently in exchange for millions of dollars in contributions to the 1996 Clinton-Gore re-election effort and the Democratic National Committee.
The Chinagate scandal of 1996 ended up in an award of 900,000 in attorney’s fees and costs to Judicial Watch ten years later.
The scandal was an apparent scheme by the Clinton administration to sell seats on taxpayer-funded trade missions in exchange for campaign contributions to the 1996 Clinton-Gore campaign.
Judicial Watch began an investigation and Clinton administration officials deliberately concealed and destroyed records regarding the trade mission and testimony was falsified.
