Newsom Obsession with Gun Owner Control Reflects His Own Self-Control Issues
California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom’s so-called “Safety for All” initiative will appear on the November ballot even if bills proposing the same kinds of infringements are passed in the legislature, The Los Angeles Times reported, noting sufficient signatures have been validated to qualify the measure. At least one lawmaker, another Democrat, has called on Newsom to withdraw his initiative if the “gunpocalypse” bills under consideration pass, saying it will “confuse the voters.”
Newsom’s initiative will require registration of ammunition purchases and ban not just the sale, but the possession of standard capacity magazines, among other mandates. A survey by The Field Poll conducted in the wake of the San Bernardino political and media firestorm shows Californians who have never learned better overwhelmingly spooked into supporting such measures to disarm them.
“Enough massacres, death, tears, and hate — it’s time to take action and save lives,” Newsom declared in a statement demonstrating shrewd exploitation of tested buzz terms designed to manipulate the ignorant and the fearful, all the while scoring brainless and lying Social Justice Warrior points. “The Safety for All initiative gives California voters the opportunity to keep guns and ammo out of the hands of violent, dangerous, hateful people [and that’s next–DC]. America has too many guns and too much hate. The result is the massacre in Orlando, and dozens of other gun deaths every single day.”
That Californians don’t see through this character – or do and pull the lever regardless, shows the same kind of citizenship corruption, dependency and incompetence that defines “progressive” enclaves and urban areas. It brings to mind nothing so much as the notorious quip from convicted former Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards, so confident in his grip on the electorate he bragged in 1983 “The only way I can lose this election is if I’m caught in bed with either a dead girl or a live boy.”
In much of California, that last bit might even give a political campaign a boost, and bring down furious condemnation and accusations of being as hater on anyone who might object instead of approve.
Newsom fits the profile of someone who can‘t (or won’t) control himself, from cucking his “friend” and campaign manager, to “show[ing] up drunk for the vigil of a mortally wounded police officer.”
Then there was his “underage date, who was seen drinking at one social function they attended,” and his checking in to rehab, as documented in another LA Times report.
“Newsom has left a trail of betrayed friends and colleagues, many of whom say they will never forgive him,” that report noted. “The voters forgave him, though; they reelected him with 72% of the vote.”
This is the miscreant who would control you and me, lending credence to the suspicion that those who cannot trust themselves dare not admit that others do not share their pathetic moral defects. And that “progressive” voters willingly surrender their trust and rights along with political power to such degenerates makes it fair to speculate about their character as well.
It also makes it fair to register concern about another phenomenon that appears to becoming a trend that could threaten us all:
“California’s skyrocketing housing costs, taxes prompt exodus of residents,” The Mercury News is reporting. Not that experience has taught many of them anything, as has been evident when they bring their failed political inclinations along with them and foul their new nests.
