Politicker AZ posted a brief mention of Congressman Harry Mitchell’s response to today’s US Supreme Court ruling on the Washington, DC gun ban. Mitchell was quoted as saying, “This is an important ruling for those who believe in personal freedoms and understand that the D.C. ban when beyond constitutional limits.”
Excuse me!?!?! Harry Mitchell wouldn’t know a gun right if he shot himself in the foot.
In 2003, while serving in the State Senate, Harry Mitchell voted against House Bill 2319. This bill ultimately passed (no thanks to Harry) and became law. (And without Governor Napolitano’s signature)
According to the Senate Fact Sheet, the legislation, “Prohibits political subdivisions of the state from regulating the transfer of firearms or ammunition as well as the sale or transfer of firearms on property it owns, leases or operates in a manner inconsistent with state law.” (Look familiar?)
Here was the vote detail during the Senate’s 3rd Read. Harry Mitchell voted AGAINST it.
So Congressman Harry, although you had something to say about today’s 2nd Amendment ruling, you really have no credibility on the issue of protecting the 2nd Amendment given your opposition to it.
