Deprivation of rights under color of law

DC’s new mayor has somewhat of a cognitive disconnect:

If it was up to me, we wouldn’t have any handguns in the District of Columbia. I swear to protect the Constitution and what the courts say, but I will do it in the most restrictive way as possible.

Emphasis added.

    No one on the left freaks out because “ooooo scary gun”. But let’s just change some words and see how the Left reacts to other Constitutional rights:
    ——-
    “If it was up to me, we wouldn’t have any PLACES OF WORSHIP in the District of Columbia. I swear to protect the Constitution and what the courts say, but I will do it in the most restrictive way as possible.”
    ——
    “If it was up to me, we wouldn’t have any INDEPENDENT NEWSPAPERS in the District of Columbia. I swear to protect the Constitution and what the courts say, but I will do it in the most restrictive way as possible.”
    ——
    “If it was up to me, we wouldn’t have any BLACK VOTERS in the District of Columbia. I swear to protect the Constitution and what the courts say, but I will do it in the most restrictive way as possible.”

    A progressive mayor that doesn’t like guns? Is this satire?

    DC was more amusing in its disfunction when Mayor Barry was smoking crack. Now the elected leadership says stuff like this, an not only remain in office but don’t get tarred, feathered and run out of town on a rail.

    So is this speech evidence that can be used in a “deprivation of rights” suit later by the oppressed citizenry?

    Glad these folks don’t get a voting Congressman or 2 Senators.
