Greetings from a regular reader in Massachusetts. Just wanted to call your attention to some sneaky tactics being perpetrated by Warren Tolman, Democratic candidate for Massachusetts Attorney General. Tolman is running 30-second TV ads where he solemnly vows to get tough on gun violence and violence against women. In the ad he makes reference to a 1994 shooting at two Brookline, Massachusetts abortion clinics and his record of helping to pass buffer zone legislation to “protect women exercising their right to choose.” He then goes on to promise that he will require finger print trigger locks on “new guns sold”. See what he’s doing there? Tying the false narrative of rampant gun violence in Massachusetts (and the rest of America) with women’s right to have an abortion! Unfortunately, the low-information and über liberal voters who comprise a vast majority of the population in this State will swallow this bovine excrement hook, line and sinker.
