Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey sits down with Michele and Igor to discuss the renewed debate on guns following the school shooting in Parkland, Florida. She shares how her state’s strict gun laws have helped make Massachusetts safer and could be a good framework for the nation; her disappointment after President Donald Trump rescinded an invitation to meet with her and other state attorneys general; and how she is fighting back against what she believes are unconstitutional measures from the White House. Over the last year, Healey has sued the Trump administration more times than she can count—over the president’s executive orders on immigration, his repeal of the Clean Power Plan, and the Department of Education’s failure to discharge student loans for students who attended predatory for-profit institutions.
