    Has the NRA even acknowledged what Maura has done, let alone take action? I must have missed something.

    Anyone else notice she is now referencing a wood stock, fixed mag, semiautomatic as a weapon of war?

    I believe the NRA is helping behind the scenes. People with direct knowledge may wish to elaborate.

    He is certainally blaming guns, specifically listing the SKS, not the person. He supports Healy's new interpretation of the law banning these guns. But aren't SKS still purchasable at your LGS? Whatever Healy did would never have prevented his lost.

    People with direct knowledge have been instructed to keep quiet. Nothing to see here, move along.

    In other news...I wish SKS' weren't so ridiculously overpriced right now...I hope Putin and Trump open up trade again to bring back my $89 mosins!

    Its fun to watch dumbass lefties like greg squirm and lash out when confronted with facts that debunk their stupid, emotionally driven positions. You can't change their minds, so you might as well make them look stupid so anyone with half a brain will stop paying attention to them.

    Thin ice there.

    Shooter was a narcissistic, socially isolated immigrant with a poor relationship with his father.

    The moral of this story for me is Maura has to go all the way back to 1992 to find a rifle shooting murder. How many people have been killed in the last 24 years in Massachusetts by falling trees, by lightning, by salmonella, by bad drivers, by medical malpractice?

    Healey's rampage lacks all logic but it does appeal to her totalitarian supporters.

    I feel sorry for the father. He's just an unfortunate, hapless and misguided tool of a dangerous politician.

    That one makes no ****ing sense.... Why the **** would they go after you and not him? You didn't do anything illegal. It wasn't your gun, you were licensed, you didn't have anything on campus. Glad to see your LO was a stand up guy and told them to pound sand.

    The enemy will take this as an indication that the AG did not go far enough.

    If anyone who has direct knowledge is dumb enough to post about it here they'll be banned.

    I am amazed the working folk of Gloucester tolerate these sorts of knot heads.

    The one or two people I'm thinking of are not going to give away sensitive NRA secrets on the internet.

    I hope this is accurate but doubt that it is, just my opinion though. If you were a lobby group that heavily relied upon memberships and the perception that you are acting on behalf of your members would you operate in secret while "the enemy" is all over the media touting her victory and being praised by politicians and celebrities? If think not. MA is a lost cause and their dollars are better spent elsewhere.

    If this same thing went down is Texas I highly doubt that the NRA would be operating in the shadows and swearing people to secercy. Someday I'll hope to be proved wrong.

    If you knew that the other side would use any mention of you helping to attack the cause, you would keep things secret too. Either way, hopefully the courts fix these issues and the NRA will get more members out of it simply by making it easier to be a gun owner here. Even if their name isn't on it, victories for gun rights are always going to be decried in the media as the "Gun lobby" or "MA state NRA".

    I suspect you're right, but MA is not Texas.

    Placing the name "NRA" on civil litigation can doom it from the start as the case becomes the evil NRA vs. the good of the government. The more cases are brought by individuals (with the proper strategy and counsel from those who know how the game is played), and the fewer by pro-gun advocacy groups, the better our chances. Nuff said :)

    I can't believe I live in the same city as these morons. Never heard of this "author" before or about the shooting that his son was involved in. I'd like to find out when they have these meetings/discussions.

    So this was sent to you in an email from the AG's office?

    AG will amend her guidance to make sure a SKS fits the 'assault weapon' narrative, which then will conflict with the section of the Federal 1994 AWB she referenced earlier in her many iterations of FAQ 'guidance' with a list of 'guns which are not assault weapons'.

    The guy's soon was killed by a murderer. How about the AG's office focus on locking up and keeping murderers locked up? Since murderers tend to keep killing people with whatever means they can acquire or devise until caged by the state.

    This explains the orange gun violence signs I saw posted around town back in the early summer. Not only does Rosenthal live here but so does this Gibson guy. Ugh.

    How do we get these people to understand the part in the 2A that says "....shall NOT be infringed."?

    Wasn't this the incident that was used as the excuse by either AG Harshbarger or Reilly to threaten vendors to not ship ammo to Massachusetts?

    Its telling that the best case they could manage is an email regarding an incident in which a total of two people died and the incident occurred 25 years ago.
