BOSTON (WWLP) – A national gun group is suing Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey following her call to ban guns similar to assault weapons.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation announced they’re fighting the Attorney General’s recent ban of “copycat guns.”
“Copycat guns” are re-configured to comply with and be excluded from the state assault weapons ban. The AG Healey argues her ban will increase safety.
Gary Stager of Enfield, Conn. wants the focus on who has the guns, rather than the type of gun. “It’s the illegal guns out on the street, and it’s the stolen guns that people are using for crimes. The people who are registered are not using them for crimes.”
The NSSF also announced a $500,000 donation from Massachusetts-based Smith & Wesson to their voter education fund.
