But she is a democrat, wealthy and powerful. So she probably will avoid prosecution for malfeasance in office. It's all the trend now with Democrat politicians nowadays.

Specifically, today the massachusetts atty. general sent out revised definitions of what constitutes an "assault weapon" to all licensed gun dealers. The first public notice of this proposed change was yesterday. No public comment period, no hearings, no studies, nothing but her personal political agenda to remove all guns from the hands of ordinary decent citizens in this state. Oh yeah, it takes effect immediately. Timed to be released during the RNC convention, when many of the opposition party are out of state. Smooth move there Exlax.

The substance of the change is to add more cosmetic features to the list that defines an assault weapon in this state. Since there is no functional description of what is an assault weapon under the law, what the law lists is a bunch of rifles and pistols by make and model, and a list of various cosmetic features that if the rifle has enough of them, turns it into an assault weapon. So she has taken upon herself to expand the list of features. and try to ram it down the throats of massachusetts gun owners.

I have looked online, all I've seen is some fuzzy scans of the letter so far. No doubt folks who are much better informed will be finding a clear copy and doing the painstaking analysis to try and figure out what the actual effects of the changes will be. Meanwhile, massachusetts gun dealers who had expensive rifles in their stock that were legal to sell yesterday, now have their money sunk into unsellable rifles today. I hope that GOAL or someone files a lawsuit to overturn the order. The basic law was, IMNSHO, unconstitutionally vague, and also pretty clearly violates the Heller and McDonald precedents on the second amendment. This new rule also would constitute an illegal taking under the constitution, considering it's incredibly short notice.

But one of the ways she wants to disarm americans is to drive gun dealers out of business, and I expect that this loss of business and trapping of their capitol will drive a few more of them out of business. Catching them at just the wrong time.

I'm trying not to hate Democrat politicians as a class. But horseshit like this makes it harder and harder not to hate them all.
