From Maura Healey

This morning, in a bold editorial, in the Boston Herald, Maura declared that this is "not a reality we can accept"

Right now Maura is asking you to share her message on Facebook. Tweet out your support with these messages or some of your own.

.@maura_healey is right – Massachusetts has some of the strongest gun laws on the books, and it’s past time that children across this country receive the same protections as our kids. #GunReformNow
Proud to live in a state and support an AG that won’t be backed down by the gun lobby. Thank you @maura_healey for speaking out for the majority of Americans who support common-sense gun reforms #EndGunViolence “It's heartbreaking to think about the worry they have to endure as they send their kids off to school..."

Our goal is to place one Letter To the Editor in every paper across the state. - www.maurahealey.com
