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.

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.”

    What a phony!! She knows damn well that there is no measure of gun control that will stop the violence we see daily in Boston. Why?? Because the problem isn’t the guns it is the acts of violence themselves that need to be addressed. Why are young black men killing eachother daily? If restraining orders don’t stop domestic violence how could making some guns illegal based on the way they look? Seriously her “ideas” are just knee-jerk, feel good, accomplish nothing old left-wing rhetoric. If you look at what these “laws” actually do to solve these problems it is a HUGE goose egg…nada…zilch.The real problem is that in this state we hold a low opinion of young black men and women who are in bad relationships. Politicians like her will never state this but the facts are that if we really wanted to address these issues and really cared about the violence we would address it in a better way….her actions are just to placate the masses into believing she is doing something……well she isn’t and the numbers don’t lie….unlike her.

  2. If you are against domestic violence then you must take a stand on Workplace Bullying. Why? Most domestic abusers are bullies in the workplace and visa versa. Both the family and employees are subjected to stealth psychological violence, which overtime creates trauma. In both scenarios the targets are isolated, robbed of self – esteem, humiliated, etc. In both scenarios, if gone unchecked leads to death and/or suicide. Speak out when you experience or witness abuse.
