California Democrat Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom won’t hold the divisive rhetoric of President Back Obama, the fabricated narratives (“hands up, don’t shoot,” “they shot him for selling CDs,” etc) of the mainstream media, the pro-cop-killing “pigs in a blanket” hatred of Black Lives Matter, or the even the violent actions of the racist domestic terrorist himself responsible for yesterday’s blood ambush of police officers.
No, in Newsom’s deranged mind, it’s the National Rifle Association that is to blame for the murders of police officers in Baton Rouge.
Newsom noted that while the facts surrounding this tragedy will emerge over the coming days, “there is one conclusion to which we must leap: enough is enough.”
“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. “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.
There is no wide-ranging “epidemic of gun violence.”
The FBI’s yearly Uniform Crime Reports show that year after year, criminal homicides firearms are plunging to record lows. This is occurring as firearm sales, gun ownership, and the number of concealed and open carriers hits new highs every single day.
Quite clearly, Newsom is factually wrong and author Robert Heinlein was proven correct: an armed society is a polite society.
The only places where we have significant, long-term pockets of violence in this Republic are in Democrat-led cities, and within those cities, they tend to be relatively small, hyper-violent areas where criminals living a “gangsta” lifestyle engage in a cycle of murder and retribution directly tied narcotics trafficking and turf wars.
The firearms recovered from these murder scenes aren’t being sold or marketed to these violent predators as Newsom intentionally and dishonestly claims. In fact, it takes an average of 10.66 years (XLS) of being in public—a full decade—before your average “crime” gun is illegally acquired by a criminal and used in a violent crime.
Of course, Gavin Newsom doesn’t care about facts.
Like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and other radical anti-gun Democrats, Gavin Newsom will directly lie to your face and claim that you are to blame for the actions of these sociopaths, career criminals, and domestic terrorists.
Gavin Newsom’s lies are calculated to scapegoat the law-abiding, absolve the domestic terrorists created by his political allies, and infringe even further on your liberties in the least-free state in the union in order to increase his political power.
