Those who support the Second Amendment should be ashamed

This is part of the reason we got to where we did:

Anti-rights Activist Judge Caught Abusing Authority in Court

Connecticut Carry Calls for Judge to Step Down

Vernon, CT, July 16, 2013:  Prominent firearms Attorney Rachel Baird of Torrington filed a motion to recuse and disqualify Judge Edward Mullarkey from a Rockville Superior Court GA-19 case on July 15th. The Motion for Recusal and Disqualification of Judge puts forth serious and egregious ethics issues raised by Mullarkey’s courtroom behavior, who is charged with being impartial.

Without any further facts or explanation, it would appear that Judge Mullarkey took it upon himself to harass Attorney Baird in the presence of her client due to her prominent and public support of firearms civil rights. In one hearing, Mullarkey checked to make sure the court reporter had stopped recording the proceeding, and then the judge proclaimed from the bench that those who support the Second Amendment should be “ashamed”.

Judge Mullarkey also made mention of ‘The Hidden History of the Second Amendment’ by Professor Carl Bogus, a rabidly anti-gun propaganda piece written by a devoted anti-gun activist. Professor Bogus has been or is currently on the National Advisory Panel for the Violence Policy Center, the Board of Governors for Handgun Control, Inc., and the Board of Directors for the Center to Prevent Handgun Violence. These are all zealous anti-rights organizations with histories of advocating for bans on firearms.

According to the language and allegations brought forth in Attorney Baird’s Motion, Judge Mullarkey has clearly used his position as a Superior Court Judge in order to act as an activist for anti-rights in defiance of our Constitution and our Second Amendment right to bear arms. The judge’s actions are also in direct defiance of the Supreme Court decisions in DC v Heller. Legal precedent requires that Judge Malarkey is bound to uphold the rulings of the High Court, regardless of his personal advocacy mission. In addition, serious concerns about discrimination and misogyny can be raised from other behaviors that the motion describes regarding Judge Mullarkey’s conduct, whereby he appears to harass Attorney Baird about her gender and background.

Based on the above Motion for Recusal and Dismissal of a Judge, Judge Mullarkey has no place as a judge, nor in holding any position of power, when he is so willing to abuse his position of power to push an anti-civil rights agenda from the bench. Connecticut Carry calls for Judge Mullarkey to immediately step down from the bench and retire.
Judge Mullarkey is not alone in his bias and contempt for our rights. Connecticut Carry is following up on allegations of judges across Connecticut with similar prejudices.


Connecticut Carry is a 501(c)(4) non-partisan, grassroots, non-profit organization dedicated to advancing and protecting the fundamental civil rights of the men and women of Connecticut to keep and bear arms for defense of themselves and the state as guaranteed by the United States Constitution and the Constitution of Connecticut.


I find it very telling that he made sure the court reporter had stop recording before revealing his disdain for the Bill of Rights.

I wonder if he also thinks those that support the 13th Amendment should be ashamed? Regardless, the punishment should be the same for both. He should be immediately removed from power, all of his previous decisions carefully reviewed, and hounded into hiding by the press.

  1. Wow! You just can’t make this stuff up! I have to admit I became skeptical that this was stire…Judge Mullarkey? Carl Bogus? Apparently real people…

  2. To paraphrase the line the statists always use- if you are not doing anything wrong, you shouldn’t mind someone recording your actions. The judge KNOWS what he’s doing is wrong, without any doubt.

  3. Wow. So much for justice being blind in THAT courtroom! I wonder how many cases they could review where he found someone guilty, and that person “happens” to be a gun-owner?

    • Different sense of the word “charged”. It can mean “officially accused of” or it can mean “asigned a responsibility or duty”.

  4. Those two should get together with that guy in New York and start their own used car business– “Bogus, Mullarkey and Weiner”.
