If I lived in Mass I would be raising holy blazes over his single handed declaration of martial law and the suspension of personal liberty.
The people of Mass are ruled like SERFS, or slaves... because they let themselves be ruled as such.
What's up with up to 5000 National Guard troops being called in?
They're making it sound like Snowpocalyse.
Maybe memories of what happened in Dec of 2007; then, a Fri afternoon, snow on the way; order given at 1 pm to send state workers etc home. MASSIVE traffic jams.
I was supposed to be at work by 6 pm. I left here at 3 pm
to travel 18 miles.
I got to work at 6:30 pm.
In better weather, I could get to Burlington VT (219 miles away) in that time. Anyway, schools let out. Work let out.
Malls (it was Dec., shoppers) etc.—massive traffic jam.

There are quite a few conservative Bay Staters, but by and large the populace is liberal. I have lots of relatives there and lets just say we don’t talk politics. Or religion either. They love the nanny state. Want all things about liberty in the Constitutional sense banned, don’t want to know God...this is what they want.
I feel for FReepers in that state.
Yes, but if the driving ban saves JUST ONE LIFE, it is definitely worth the cost.
