Gavin Newsom tries anti-gun attack that backfires

California Gov. Gavin Newsom will probably run for president someday. I wouldn’t be surprised to see President Joe Biden decide to replace Vice President Kamala Harris with Newsom–it would keep California locked up electorally and Harris is…well, she’s just bad all around.

For now, though, Newsom is content to just act like an idiot when and where he can.

And that’s what he did when he went on the attack following the shooting in Allen, TX.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom immediately criticized the Republican controlled Congress after a deadly mass shooting at a mall in suburban Dallas, Texas killed at least 8 and injured 7 others on Saturday afternoon, slamming Congress for not passing gun control reform.

“This is freedom?? To be shot at a mall? Shot at school? Shot at church? Shot at the movies?” the Democrat governor wrote in a Twitter post shortly after police confirmed the causalities. “We have become a nation that is more focused on the right to kill than the right to live.”

Oh, sick burn.

Except, of course, it’s total male bovine excrement.

I challenge Gov. Newsom to show me one place in the United States that actually has a “right to kill.”

Sure, many have taken steps to preserve the right to self-defense, but that’s fundamentally different. Even Newsom will acknowledge–publicly, at least–that you have a right to defend yourself if you find yourself being threatened.

That’s not “the right to kill.”

So where is it, Newsom? Where is this “right to kill” that Congress is supposedly so focused on?

Nowhere. That’s where it is.

At least, not with a firearm.

California, however, wants to be an abortion mecca for people who feel like they can’t get one in their home state. For a lot of people, that sure looks like California and Newsom are worried about an actual “right to kill.”

There’s also California’s euthanasia law that allows anyone who has lived in the state for six months to get assisted suicide–another thing that sure looks like killing to a lot of other folks.

In other words, a case can easily be made that Newsom’s California is one of the few places that actually does have a right to kill.

The truth of the matter is that no matter what gun control you pass, there will be a potential for mass shootings. I reported on three from Europe just recently, including two in Serbia just days apart. Another was in Portugal.

Those three were within the span of a week, folks, and there is no nation in Europe that is particularly gun friendly. Not by American standards, anyway.

Newsom and people like him would do well to stop focusing on the guns and start looking at what we can do that might actually work.

That’s not going to happen, though. It’s not going to happen because Newsom wants to square up his anti-gun credentials prior to his presidential run, whenever that actually happens.

The thing is, I don’t think that will work the way he intends.
