Quotes from the news wire:
This is an abuse of power by the Massachusetts attorney general, it is no different than President Obama’s illegal anti-gun executive orders. If these firearms were legal yesterday, they are legal today, Alan Gottlieb said in an email to FoxNews.com. This ban on semi-auto firearms must be stopped before gun prohibitionists in other states try to enact similar bans by fiat, Alan Gottlieb said. The debate is the latest example of the long-running argument between Second Amendment purists and gun control advocates about whether new firearms laws make people safer. Indeed, the fact that Massachusetts has so few murders committed using assault weapons could be seen as evidence that the original ban was successful. The enforcement notice from the attorney general says a weapon is considered a copy or duplicate if its internal operating system is the same as those of a specifically-banned weapon or if the gun has key functional components that are interchangeable with those of a banned weapon. Such weapons would include copies of the Colt AR-15 and the Kalishnikov AK-47, which are both prohibited by the state's assault weapons ban. Healey's office claims gun makers produce and sell what they call.
There’s no doubt at this point it’s consumer-driven to a large extent, because they’re elected, they have to make their constituents happy. We’ve seen a record number of firearms sold. And people come in to get permits to carry, and you want to be customer-service friendly, and you want to make it easier – or you might not get re-elected.
The intent of the new law is obviously to discourage teachers from having firearms to protect themselves and their students, Gottlieb said.

And maybe this new law will help convince school districts that they actually should make this decision on their own.
Defense Distributed appears caught in what appears to be a bureaucratic game of merry-go-round, the right to keep and bear arms includes the ability to acquire or create arms. The government is engaging in behavior that denies this company’s due process under the Fifth Amendment. We’re compelled to file this action because the bureaucracy is evidently playing games and it’s time for these agencies to behave.
This kind of below-the-radar bureaucratic gun confiscation is a growing Second Amendment and property rights violation problem, particularly in strict gun control states like California, New Jersey and Massachusetts, people can't afford to spend tens of thousands of dollars on legal fees to get back a $500 firearm.
Mr. Bailey is devastated by this situation. We seem to live in an environment when someone’s life can be turned upside down on an allegation that should have been thoroughly investigated before any action was ordered by a court, we’re helping Bailey in his appeal of the judge’s order so he can not only reclaim his valuable firearms, but also some of his dignity as well.
Under existing federal law many people convicted of non-violent state-level misdemeanors have lost their Second Amendment rights because they’ve been lumped together with convicted felons due to indeterminate sentencing laws, that’s not right, and cases like this help restore some perspective and narrow some broad legislative brush strokes.
