“A lot of people don’t know that in many locations in the commonwealth, you can take this gun, you can walk in the middle of Main Street loaded and not be in violation of the law,” Morrissey said during his presentation.

Morrissey was found guilty in 2002 of committing a vicious assault in 1999 and was sanctioned for legal misconduct while prosecuting a rape case.

He left the country for a short time after the incident.
