On gun control, Newsom seems to be following Bloomberg’s strategic lead

As he pushes a proposed ballot initiative cobbled together from gun-control bills that died in the Legislature or on the governor’s desk, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom frames the battle he hopes to wage next year as a personal one.

“Since Sandy Hook, I have sat back as a father and been mesmerized by the inability of the federal government to do anything substantively on gun safety,” he said in a recent telephone interview, referring to the 2012 shooting deaths of 26 children and staff at a Connecticut school.

But the expanded background checks and stolen-gun reporting requirements that Newsom seeks to put on the state ballot next fall also fit neatly into an unfolding national effort championed by billionaire and former New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.

    When you are totally stupid, you have to wiggle your ears to poop. In my 72 years, I haven’t seen this much stupidity in our Nation. Follow the Constitution! I don’t care if you don’t like it! There is a way to change it but these stupid idiot liberal dummycrats want even try, for they know they will fail. So, they go about passing ILLEGAL anti Constitutional laws all across our Nation without ever looking at the facts. Of course, facts have never been a strong suit for these mentally ill perverts. Obama, the Executive Anus is the biggest violator of all.

    It is a real shame that these lib/progs can’t seem to get it through their thick skulls that “shall NOT be infringed” MEANS SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED and that NO AMOUNT OF GUN LAWS IS GOING TO STOP CRIMINALS FROM HAVING GUNS. Even if they could stop criminals and nut jobs from having guns, the criminals and nut jobs would just find other weapons like knives or IEDs.
    You know, my Momma always told me, it’s impossible to have a battle of wits with an unarmed person.

      Why do people keep voting for someone who will not make them safe. The Elected Official knows that they will be safe and that is all that matters. You would of thought people would look at what happened in Paris, France to all of the Unarmed victims and demand we learn from that.

        They have a “D” behind their name, and that is what they are paid to vote for.
