Attorney General Maura Healey recently joined a lawsuit against the U.S. secretary of education saying:

“What Betsy DeVos did is pull the rug out from under us, with no notice, and announced that she was going to delay that rule that had been carefully crafted and worked on for the last two years. And what she did was illegal. It violates the Administrative Procedures Act and more importantly, it’s unfair. It makes no sense.”

DeVos suspended rules established by the Obama administration meant to protect students from abuses by for-profit colleges.

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.

Her actions were politically motivated, and she is playing word game semantics with our civil rights. If she can do this to gun owners, she can do this to anyone.
