Let me explain…
Responding to the Baton Rouge murder of police officers, Newsom isn’t following the typical party lines.
Instead he’s blaming the NRA for the whole thing. Sigh.
Here’s Bearing Arms with a revealing quote from Newsom (emphasis ours)…
“An armed society is a dangerous society and we cannot accept the profit-driven fallacies promulgated by the firearms industry, its spokespeople at the National Rifle Association, and their paid subsidiaries,” Newsom says.
But it gets worse, Newsom goes on to imply that gun violence is an “endemic” that is plaguing our society…
“The endemic of gun violence terrorizing our society – inflicted upon police officers, nightclub goers, places of work, churches, movie theaters, schools, and disproportionately upon and within America’s minority communities – is by definition a political issue and elected leaders must not back down from calling for tougher regulation of firearms and ammunition in fear of political retribution from these defendants of death.
An endemic is defined as a disease regularly infecting a population. That’s you, me, and the folks at the NRA. And of course, “tougher regulation” is just polical spectacle, and isn’t going to solve the problem.
Education is the first step of many in a free society.
Perhaps making sure Newsom doesn’t get office in the next election is another.
