    Like if the NRA morphs into a PMC and starts operating death squads? Who exactly is the “you” he is referring to? The NRA itself, NRA members, gun owners in general?

    1. avatar W says:

      He’s probably just trying to sound tough (to his political base) while merely stating a longstanding principle that domestic abusers are not allowed to possess firearms.

      1. avatar Chicago Steve says:

        What is the percentage of gang members in LA that are prosecuted for illegal gun possession vs number of said people that have them?

        Clean up your own state first

        Adam Carolla had him as a guest on his podcast a couple years ago, and went into it with good intentions. He gave him the benefit of doubt until Newsom opened his pie hole and revealed who he really is. Within 5 minutes Carolla realized he’s dealing with a political scumbag who couldn’t answer a direct question with a direct answer if a gun was being held to his head. Carolla talks shit about him every opportunity he can since that interview.

        1. avatar Koolhed says:

          Adam Carolla on Gavin Newsom:

          “He’s the biggest, emptiest, fucking vessel who’s ever sat across from me AND, he’s arrogant about his ignorance. He’s an ignorant IDIOT who’s arrogant about it. He’s an empty sack of Lavoris and Brylcreem. He’s an absolute NOTHING… He offers NOTHING. ZERO!”

    2. avatar Garrison Hall says:

      Coercive reform almost always leads to turning previously routine and normal behavior into deviant behavior. It’s a logical progression. It is also a precursor to the failure of the movement’s core ideology. Prohibitionists turned to coercive reform when people persisted into drinking whisky. When they started seeing drinkers of strong-drink as morally deficient deviants, it was a clear signal that Americans were rejecting temperance and prohibition values. We should think this guy for showing just how much—even in California—gun control ideology is failing. What’s probably going to happen next won’t be pretty. California has created thousands to new criminals who can now be arrested and put in jail.

      1. Well said Garrison; and as an armed (lawfully) Californian, I completely agree.

      Hi. My name is Gavin. I am smart. I am a government thing…peop…person. Want to see my big brain work? Look at this booger… hahahahah. I am Gavin, Hi.

      Tell me, am I overstating the IQ of this idiot?

      1. avatar Edward Allen says:

        He is the same putz who changed gun theft from a felony to a misdemeanor unless it was valued at greater than $1000. Then made it a felony if you don’t report it missing within 3 day or if you let somebody, other than an immediate family member, borrow a firearm without going through an FFL to loan it and the using an FFL to have it returned.

    4. avatar David says:

      Criminals? Maybe? No just Gun owners. Just Wants our guns and any Criminal hurts someone. He is going to go after all Guns. POS “California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom”.
      How about if: If YOU hurt someone YOU WILL be Punished. Why go after the Gun? It didn’t do anything. The Ashhole that USED the gun did the Hurting.
      But these People are tooooooo Stuuuuupid to understand they are suppose to Punish the Criminal not the Process used. That will never stop anything.
      Might cause a problem for the People HE SENDS to collect the guns!

  2. avatar No one of consequence says:

    And if you don’t hurt anyone, follow all the rules and do everything we ask … We’ll get around to you anyway, never fear.

    So glad I no longer live in California.

    1. avatar Steve says:

      You and me both! Left 3 years ago to move to Utah and have not looked back. Do have to go back occasionally due to relatives, but hate having to go there.

      1. avatar Ed Rogers says:

        We abandoned California, after we retired from the USAF. I had NO idea what freedom was until we moved here.

        Our trips back there are limited to absolute necessity (family). Honestly, shoveling snow sucks. It’s a small price to pay for freedom though.

        1. So then why did not black people do the same regarding segregation, instead of that whole civil rights movement?

    2. avatar OmnivorousBeorn says:

      +1. Good food is arguably the best thing about CA. The liberal laws and guys like Newsom more than compensate for that.

      1. avatar Chris T from KY says:

        The good food will disappeared when the socialist progressive democrats write laws telling people what they can and can’t eat.
        They have already raided health food stores with police with drawn guns.

    3. avatar dlj95118 says:

      …counting the days when Kalifornia sees nothing of me but my tail lights.

      “So glad I no longer live in California”

      There’s some news that the dreaded ‘9th Circus’ will get a substantial re-balancing thanks to Trump, but not enough to give us the outright majority :

      “Kozinski’s retirement leaves five seats open on the 9th Circuit, with two more judges already having announced their intention to retire next year. That gives President Donald Trump potentially seven seats to fill on the largest and most liberal appeals court in the country.

      Even if all those judgeships are filled, however, Democratic appointees still will maintain a healthy majority on the court with 17 of the 29 seats.”

      Hey, it *helps*, anyways…

      1. avatar TX_Lawyer says:

        A lot of the allegations in the article, if true, would be criminal acts, so his “misconduct” isn’t just inappropriate behavior.

    5. avatar Roymond says:

      I used to go to California in the winters to help with my SAD. No longer — it’s not worth the stress.

      Indeed I recently told some Bible study folks that if they want to know what it was like living under the Roman Empire, California’s a reasonably close experience.

  3. avatar 300BlackoutFan says:

    So… A leftist politician can THREATEN a Not For Profit organization and it’s members with an act specifically forbidden by the US Constitution. Do I smell Tyranny?

    1. avatar ATFAgentBob says:

      Tyranny? What is this tyranny friend? Here in the great workers’ socialist paradise of the People’s Democratic Republic of Kalifornia there is no tyranny of the bourgeoisie and the proletariat. Just glorious equality for all!!

      1. avatar Mandew says:

        You made me vomit in my mouth, then I realized it was sarcasm 😒

  4. avatar ATFAgentBob says:

    Ooooook…. uhhh Gavin buddy you may wanna lay off the weed. See the NRA doesn’t actually own, manufacture, or sell guns and practically all of the people committing crimes with their guns aren’t on the NRA member rolls. But hey cool story bro I’m sure the idiots that vote for you are lapping it up.

      …mic drop.

  6. avatar pwrserge says:

    Who is this “we” white man?

    1. avatar John Fritz HMFIC says:

      Yeah, what’s this ‘we’ shit Gavin? You French? You got a mouse in your pocket?

      Y’all think Jerry B. is a travesty you just wait until this guy’s four year shit-show is a wrap.

  7. avatar Blackspike2710 says:

    Thank God I’m not a member of the NRAoA then.

  8. avatar ironicatbest says:

    This article was vague. …….Support your local Law Enforcement .

    1. avatar AKM Sarah says:

      Only if they behave. 😛

  9. avatar Ogre says:

    Newsom and his Frisco-fried brain – where to begin? Read about him and his lefty, feel-good politics on Wiki. I guess he makes the periodic anti-gun/anti-NRA posting on Facebook (and wherever else he can get publicity) just to keep his credentials valid with the Brady Bunch, Bloomburg and whomever else underwrites him. I don’t think even he knows exactly what it all means, but tyranny by any other name still stinks.

  10. avatar notguiltfree says:

    And the people said back; Screw You NEWSCUM!!!!!

  11. avatar RMS1911 says:

    This guy must have a really Butch mouse in his pocket.
    I’m still not worried.

  12. avatar The Rookie says:

    And this guy used to be married to Kimberly Guilfoyle?

    1. avatar GS650G says:

      And we thought he was gay.

      1. avatar Mark N. says:

        All speculation about that went out he window when he was not only humping his own wife, but the wife of his (now former) campaign manager and (now former) best friend. With friends like Gavin, who needs enemies? I wonder if the dreaded sexual harassment accusations will hit him when he runs for governor. At the moment, however, he is the front runner and has the biggest war chest. And yes, he is going to try his best to ban as many guns as he can. He is, after all, the proponent of Prop 63, out new ammo “registration” law.
        One of the top contenders, Senator Kevin De Leon, decided instead to challenge DiFi for her seat, calculating, perhaps, that he had better odds winning that election that the one for the governorship.

  13. avatar Chip Bennett says:

    The only appropriate response from the NRA:

    Come, Take.

  14. avatar Don Lawlis says:

    Hey dumbass…you come for my guns & I WILL HURT YOU!!!

  15. avatar Aaron M. Walker says:

  16. avatar Aaron M. Walker says:

    I guess they’ll be a 2nd American Civil War after all….I guess when the smoke clears.. We’ll probably be seeing some Nuremberg Style court stuff on TV…Possibly some executions..Firing squads, or Hangings…History is obviously about to repeat itself….

  17. avatar Wiregrass says:

    Just reinforcing the leftist lie that the NRA is somehow a terrorist organization. Bring it on asswipe!

  18. avatar Michael G Marriam says:

    According to liberal logic he’s informing NRA members he intends to hurt them.
    Liberals always accuse conservatives of doing or planning to do what they themselves are doing or planning to do.

  19. avatar LHW says:

    Violation of civil rights?

  20. avatar ozzallos says:

    The definition of irony: An anti-gun politician threatening the use of force to enact policy.

  21. avatar Jesse says:

    TITLE 18, U.S.C., SECTION 242
    Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, … shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnaping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

  22. avatar Ironhead says:

    Funny that he says that after an illegal alien who has been deported multiple times shot and killed a woman. Dude gets found not guilty.
    I guess her life didnt matter did it newscum? See you didnt threaten him at all. You are a real tough guy. Bring it sissy boy.
    I would rather build the wall on the kalifornia state line than the mexican border.

  23. avatar Devin says:

    This guy is truly a foul weasel of a politician. It will be a dark day when this scumbag takes the reigns of the Ca governors office from the current fried out hippy we have. The progressives have a super majority in our state government and this guy is a guaranteed rubber stamp for any absurd gun control scheme they want to pass. Regardless of how many eventually get overturned I can see a bleak short term situation developing when this chump gets into office.

  24. avatar Chris Morton says:

    When’s that twit coming for the NYPD’s guns?

  25. avatar Bitchnuts says:

    I wish leftists WOULD try to take my guns away; some interactive/moving targets would be fun.

  26. avatar AlanInFL says:

    He is trying to out do both DiFi and Harris. All three should be called the Three Stooges of no brains at all.

  27. avatar Hank says:

    There can’t be a more plastic, made-for-the-B-movies politician on the planet.

  28. avatar Wayne Womack says:

    Bet you get the bullets first cause no dumbfuck politician in the lying socialist communist democratic party is going to get our guns without a he’ll of a fight from gun owners. Ignorant dumbass bastard

    “we ARE coming for your guns.” – California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom

    Hey Gavin….
    …Bring friends

  31. avatar Mr.Savage says:

    by “we” does he mean to tell me he would personally show up to confiscate arms from citizens? I’ll have a special gift ready for him, merry Christmas!

  32. avatar JS says:

    Considering he will simply be one more in a line of failed liberal socialist governors will be Californistans problem. Your challenge is he will want to run for President and bring his socialist views with him. God help you all if that happens…

  33. avatar ColoradoKid says:

    What a dweeb…maroon…imbecile…

  34. avatar Chris T in KY says:

    Gavin Newsom will be elected gov in California. The politically powerful homosexual cultural will reward him for his past disregard for state and federal law. Gays say he is a nice man. Homosexuals are socialist progressive in their political orientation. Even after the Pulse Night club mass murders, they still put forcing the public to accept homosexual sex acts over the human right to armed self defense. Homosexual Leadership has no respect for private property or Liberty.

  35. avatar DerryM says:

    All the negative things said about Newsom times 1,000 is why he scares the sh*t out of me because, unless he gets derailed, he will be the next Governor of California. To say he is a scumbag is an insult to scumbags. Gavin Newsom will destroy Second Amendment rights in CA and likely finish destroying its other freedoms and economy, as well.

    1. avatar Pg2 says:

      Stick a fork in CA. It’s done. Best bet is to put it in isolation, by far the most effective method for preventing the spread of infectious disease.

      1. avatar DerryM says:

        As far as I can tell the infection has already spread to Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and other States, as many Californians are moving to those States bringing “California Values” with them. I have an expatriate relative in Ft. Collins, CO, who is an independent Conservative. He says when Coloradans find-out you’re “from California” they automatically reject any further contact with you and don’t care what your political views are. I expect it might be the same elsewhere.

        California isn’t just “done”…the meat is falling off the bones…

  36. avatar Erik Weisz says:

    It takes a lot for me to actually say I hate someone, and Gavin Newsome is one of the few on that list. I wish him harm. I hope he gets run over by a bus. Perhaps God’s plan is for him to serve as a prime example of what pure evil is, and far be it from me to interfere, but the heart wants what the heart wants. Pure scum. F*&# that guy. I hope he has an uncontrollable rectum itch the next time he’s on TV. Aaaaaand scratches it.

    1. avatar David Keith says:

      I completely agree. Only in San Francisco would a spineless dick like this be a big shot.

  37. avatar Pg2 says:

    Where is his righteous indignation and outrage at the medical community being the 3rd leading cause of death in the USA? Full of 💩.

  38. avatar don says:

    This clown is not very bright,I wish you would try and take my guns.

  39. avatar George Taylor says:

    Too bad, why pick on the NRA? Isn’t it the bad guys he ought to be targeting? Newsome needs a reality check. MolenLabe: “Come as you might; Try and take them.”

  40. avatar David Keith says:

    This is the POS who screwed his best friend’s wife and now he’s taking the high road and coming for my guns. You’re not coming for jack, pretty boy.

  41. avatar Sharon says:

    As bad as this guy sounds, what really worries me is the fact that the majority of Californians keep electing people like him to office. (and I’m the one accused of drinking the Kool-Aid because I voted for Trump.)
