California Governor (and presumed Democrat Presidential hopeful) Gavin Newsom hasn’t met a gun law or restriction that he doesn’t support. For everyone else, that is (just check his armed guards). And, like so many other (every other?) anti-2A politician, Newsom loves to spout “facts” about the positive effects of gun control.
Except that those positive effects can’t be attributed to gun control at all. Quite the opposite, in fact.
No, the reduction in gun Deaths that Newsom desperately wants to credit towards gun control (which he’s trying to push even more of) is actually due to things that have absolutely nothing to do with gun control laws. Not even in the slightest.
You can watch a video take down of Newsom’s lies in the video below from our friends at gunfacts.info.
Did you watch that (if not, it’s worth taking the just over six minutes to watch it)?
How can Newsom claim that gun control saved lives in California when California’s gun homicide rate is virtually identical to both Colorado and Kansas who have much lower (or virtually no) gun control?
It’s because he doesn’t mind being dishonest to push his agenda.
So, homicides aren’t where California is decreasing gun death rates, what is? The video answers that one part of the explanation is the lowering of overall suicide rates, which can pretty much all be attributed to both demographics and cultural differences than other parts of the country.
Now, it’s admirable that California has lower suicide rates than much of the rest of the country, but because that lower rate is due to cultural and demographic differences, Newsom can’t honestly attribute that difference to gun control laws.
The other reason for a decrease in gun deaths is laws sending repeat offenders to jail (instead of back to the street like leftists like Newsom are, now, pushing for).
Yet, he keeps saying that gun control is what is helping and is, therefore, the solution.
So, what do we call it when someone knowingly and intentionally misrepresents a situation to push an agenda which has the opposite effect from what they say it will?
That’s right, we call them the liar that they are.
