California Gun Control Group Endorse Upcoming Governor

Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, the architect of California’s new ammunition regulations, has garnered support from Giffords to become the state’s next governor.

The gun control group founded by former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and Mark Kelly announced their endorsement of Newsom last week, saying the Democrat had “demonstrated time and time again” he was a champion for stronger firearm laws.

“California has set an example for other states to follow and has tackled the epidemic head on, but there is more work to be done,” said Giffords in a statement. “Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom’s exceptional record as a gun safety champion makes him uniquely qualified to take on that challenge.”

Newsom, the former mayor of San Francisco and political ally of U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, announced his candidacy for this year’s gubernatorial race back in 2015. Since then, he has tapped fellow Dems and a host of billionaire West Coast philanthropists to fund a $5 million ballot measure to entrench a host of new guns and limit ammunition sales in the state. That drive, Prop. 63, was opposed by a broad coalition of groups but was approved by voters and went into effect this month.

Further, the state’s no. 2 Democrat has waged a running battle on social media against the National Rifle Association for years, frequently tweeting against the membership group. However, this tactic has sometimes boomeranged such as when he attempted to publicly harangue Olympian competition shooter Kim Rhode on the subject of ammo controls or was confronted with persistent questions during a Facebook Live event about past associations with Shrimp Boy Chow or Leland Yee.

Newsom, facing a June primary against a crowded field of Democrats including former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, is leading the pack in current polling.

Second Amendment advocates were not shocked by the Giffords’ endorsement of Newsom.

“It’s not surprising that the same Giffords people who spend their lives attacking our constitutional rights would pick Gavin Newsom to be their lapdog,” Brandon Combs, president of the advocacy organization Firearms Policy Coalition, told Guns.com. “Gavin and Giffords are a match made in anti-rights authoritarian heaven.

Combs forecast that should Newsom move into term-limited Gov. Jerry Brown’s office it would be a dark day for gun owners in the state.

“Californians who value freedom need to get politically active, and quickly, or a Giffords-backed Governor Newsom will make Jerry Brown look like Ronald Reagan,” said Combs.

    I feel bad for the people of CA that want to keep the Freedoms that our U.S. Constitution Grants us only to be destroyed by the “Left Wing Snowflakes” wanting to destroy what this country was founded on. Maybe this state will slide off into the Pacific Ocean with those that think their way is the only way. People of CA, Stand up against this Treasonous group of politicians that are Taking your Freedoms and Liberties away from you Piece by Piece.

      A minor correction: the Constitution doesn’t grant rights (which could legally be taken away by another amendment) but rather endorses PRE-EXISTING rights given to us by our Creator Who is a higher Authority than any government. Kudos to the rest of your comment though.

        You are correct but, it is the politicians that will take the rights and freedoms that are written and make life unbearable by these bogus laws that force people to defend at their own expense only to be broken down to the point of submission if not jail time. Thank you for the reply. st

      I agree 100% with you. If I were younger, I would move out of this state. California has been taken over by the far left. People, myself included that live in Northern part of California have no say and our vote does not count. Hollywood and the illegal aliens make sure of that. We need to divide this state up into Southern California and Northern California.

        I have been a California citizen from birth. I only was out of the state for the twelve years i was in the Army. 1969-1981. Last year I could no longer stand the communists, sold my house, borrowed what I could and the wife and I moved to Georgia.

        I have heard about plans to split the state up but have also heard that a split into three parts will be necessary because neither the north nor the south wants any part of San Francisco. That was before SF became – literally – a s*** hole.

    “Moonbeam” and Kalifornia government has gone off the deep end along with Newson and Dem’s as well as too many other Lib’s in Kalifornia. They all forget that much of their lifeline of water and power comes from other states which can be cut off without comment or notice just as they shut down both of their own nuclear power stations. They also need to remember that all Military bases and Federal Forests are owned by the US Taxpayers NOT Kalifornia citizens or City Governments so they cannot expect any revenue from any of those properties. Being that other states own the original rights to Colorado River water as well as power from the dams on that river and the Palo Verde nuclear power plant in AZ, wouldn’t be interesting to have all of those water and power supplies cut off including Federal funding making Kalifornia figure out how to replace all of those losses thru their politicians own stupidity and greed…….?????

      All those ‘Calexit’ proponents do not realize what you described here.

      All I ask is: “Where is Lex Luthor when we need him?”

    Anybody in California illegals or otherwise who would vote for a communist a.k.a. Democrat, deserve everything they get in the end, as they are the same type that voted for Hitler, and then said we were lied to. You have no idea give up your guns and you will taste communism to the fullest make no mistake about it
