Pink Pistols in the New Boston Post

There's no podcast today because Weerd Beard needed last week off. However, I do have something to talk about.

Last month a reporter for the New Boston Post asked me, in my capacity as National Coordinator for the Pink Pistols, if I had a comment about Shannon Liss-Riordan's call to repeal the Second Amendment as part of her campaign for Massachusetts Attorney General. My comment, reported in this article, was: 

Out of 50 states in this country, 21 of them have passed Constitutional Carry for their residents. In order to repeal the Second Amendment, three-fourths of the states must ratify the repeal. 75% of 50 means 38 states must ratify, yet 50 minus the 21 with Constitutional Carry leaves only 29. Ms. Liss-Riordan's plan lacks the numbers to succeed, which is something a state attorney general ought to know. This is simply pandering to a voter base and nothing more.

What amuses me is that Liss-Riordan used this same tactic back in 2020, when she was running for the U.S. Senate, and Maura Healey's own political consultant David Guarino bashed it by saying it was a "new low bar for primary voter pandering with ideas going nowhere." 

You know who Maura "May I?" Healey is, right? The MA AG whose gun control policy boils down to I'm not going to tell you if your AR-15 is legal or not, you'll find out when I arrest you? Yeah, her very own political consultant thinks Liss-Riordan's "Repeal the 2A" rhetoric is pandering and that the idea will go nowhere. 

That's gotta hurt!
