Governor Newsom Says He Will Use Legal Tactics of Texas Abortion Ban to Implement Gun Control
This is my first gun issue Page in years. I think since 2018. In any case, I agree with Gov Newsom on this. I can’t imagine a better way to use 2 huge issues to set things straight for both. If my next-door neighbor want’s an AR for home defense, I want bulletproof walls between myself and his house. If otoh he wants to use something sensible against a violent intruder, there are plenty of better choices than a semi-auto rifle. Hunting? Also lots of better choices.
Newsom-“I am outraged by yesterday’s US Supreme Court decision allowing Texas’s ban on most abortion services to remain in place, and largely endorsing Texas’s scheme to insulate its law from the fundamental protections of Roe v. Wade,” Newsom said in a statement.
“But if states can now shield their laws from review by the federal courts that compare assault weapons to Swiss Army knives, then California will use that authority to protect people’s lives, where Texas used it to put women in harm’s way,”
