California Governor Gavin Newsom and Attorney General Rob Bonta held a press conference yesterday to boast about the state’s latest attacks on fundamental human rights. In response, the Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) issued the following statement:
The State of California continues to seek new lows in its long-running campaign to assault fundamental human rights and the peaceable people who exercise them. This time, Gavin Newsom, who loves to issue mandates he himself doesn’t bother to follow, was joined by other elitist authoritarians to announce a new barrage of attacks on the rights to keep and bear arms and free speech, among others.
Newsom’s proposed policies are just modern-day Jim Crow laws designed to suppress the exercise of human rights, increase law enforcement encounters, and incarcerate for non-violent crimes the people that the tyrants who run California don’t like.
But Newsom and his gang of government thugs can’t stop the signal. It’s clear that Newsom is using the polarizing issue of unconstitutional and immoral gun control to distract from his growing mountain of failing policies and constant political embarrassments. However, if the state enacts these incredibly abusive policies, the Firearms Policy Coalition will not hesitate to act quickly and aggressively to protect the rights and property of gun owners.
