Maricopa County Attorney still “playing well” with AZ Senators
Many of us arrived home from our daily grind Tuesday to find one of those annoying robo calls on the answering machine. This one was of particular interest since it was from the impatient and ambitious Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery. And who did he find time in his busy day to pimp for? None other than the edgy oldster John McCain. McCain, at age 80, is running, albeit scared, for yet another 6-year U.S. Senate term, telling Arizonans he still has work to do.
Among McCain’s unfinished business is continuing to push for amnesty for those illegally invading the USA and further constricting our Second Amendment rights. On Dec. 3, 2015, John McCain was one of only four U.S. Senate Republican defectors who voted with the unified Democrats to limit Second Amendment rights. The Roll Call vote was 48 – 50. (Deceptively worded “Statement of Purpose” accompanies vote.)
Don’t get sidetracked by the flowery description of the bill as a protective or “healthcare freedom” measure or the language that makes it sound as though it’s a budget bill. It was a Democrat-led expansion of background checks on law-abiding purchasers of firearms. GOP Sen. Mark Kirk, who joined the renegades faces a tough reelection campaign in the blue state of Illinois and is willing to wave the white flag of surrender on constitutional rights. McCain’s motivation is his arrogant, long-held view that he knows better what’s best for the rest of us. His pet project is closing what he calls “gun show loopholes”
Yet in his robo call, County Attorney Montgomery waxes eloquent on McCain’s unwavering support for “protecting our Second Amendment rights.“
Don’t believe it for a second. Bill Montgomery has other motivations that have more to do with his own political aspirations than John McCain’s attempt to hoodwink us during his last hurrah campaign.
Gun Owners of America has endorsed Dr. Kelli Ward, saying, “McCain has been a thorn in the side of Second Amendment supporters for years.” GOA notes that only 35% of AZ GOP voters approve of the job McCain is doing compared to 50% who disapprove. The organization gives him a D – rating.
Early balloting in the Primary Election begins today, Aug. 3. Election Day is Aug. 30. McCain has been in office since he was first elected in 1982. It’s time for a change. For conservative representation, send Dr. Kelli Ward to D.C. Here’s her view on the Second Amendment which she calls “one of our most treasured liberties, and it must be protected.” No double talk on “gun show loopholes” or purposely convoluted babble.

Arizonans know we deserve better than what we’ve been getting, regardless of what we hear from a McCrony on a robo call.
