BOSTON (CBS) – Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey recently kicked off the second phase of the Game Change Program, an initiative with the New England Patriots to stop domestic violence before it ever starts.
Healey, Patriots CEO Robert Kraft and current and former Patriots players joined students for a rally at Revere High School last week. Students there were the first to be trained as part of the second phase of the program and shared what they learned with the entire school.
Healey joined WBZ’s Liam Martin and Paula Ebben to discuss Game Change, Curt Schilling’s potential Senate run and the ‘copycat’ assault weapon ban.
Critics have called Healey’s crackdown on copycat weapons “unconstitutional.”
“I think the dust has settled,” Healey said of the announcement she made in July.
“I think that people see that this is working and if you look at the actual text of the statute, what the Legislature said, I don’t make the laws, I don’t write the laws but it is my job to enforce them, and they understand that that’s what we’ve done.”
On Tuesday, former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling announced he would run against Sen. Elizabeth Warren in 2018 if his wife says it’s OK.
Healey described Schilling as “TrumpLite.”
“I respect and admire his exploits on the field and what he did as a Boston Red Sock, but it takes a lot more than a bloody sock, a failed video business and Trump-like comments like that to represent the people of Massachusetts,” Healey said. “They deserve more.”
