|Elections and appointments|
|Last election||November 4, 2014|
In a meeting with the New Haven Register on February 19, Mullins noted the following points:
- Excerpt:"It (the new law) felt good to do it. They (legislators) felt they had accomplished something — and this is both Democrats and Republicans — but it hurt legal gun owners. I think the missing part was mental health. Mr. (Adam) Lanza had a serious mental health problem. As far as the ammunition and the guns were concerned, they were all legal. But he (Lanza) had a serious problem. ... What is missing from the bill is serious talk about mental health."
Police in Schools
- Excerpt:"On increased security measures at schools in light of Newtown, Mullins said an officer in each school makes sense. There are an estimated 1,025 public school buildings in Connecticut, according to the state Education Department. When asked how that would be funded, Mullins said he was sure he could find the resources in the state budget."
Representation for West Haven
- Excerpt:"Mullins said he feels West Haven has not been properly represented in the state Senate and he accused Harp of never being around except at election time. He promised to give equal attention to West Haven as well as New Haven, which his opponent, state Rep. Gary Holder-Winfield also has promised."
- Excerpt:"Mullins said he would vote against a proposed tax on sugary drinks and the aid in dying bill, which he said is really assisted suicide."
