Gavin Newsom Shifts Responsibility from Armed Criminals to Gun Manufacturers

Americans can toss all that fake talk about “freedom” Gavin Newsom littered Florida’s airwaves with recently. His actions speak so much louder than his words—as they always have. As National Review reported, Newsom warned Floridians, “Freedom is under attack in your state.” He even absurdly invited residents to move to California. Then he returned to California and promptly attacked freedom.

According to Politico, “California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill Tuesday allowing individuals as well as the state and local governments to sue gun makers for negligence, potentially paving the way to a wave of lawsuits if the legislation survives inevitable legal challenges.”

There is no word on Gavin offering a similar bill targeting Ford or GM for when people commit crimes with their vehicles.

This action appears to be just another effort to deflect criminals away from accepting responsibility for the crimes they commit with guns. When a criminal uses a gun to commit a murder or robbery, it’s just so much easier to punish the gun manufacturer–and law-abiding gun owners. Especially since Democrat politicians have a well-established reputation for letting criminals who’ve committed crimes with guns off easily or go Scot-Free.

On Twitter, Newsom said, “Gun manufacturers & distributors have been shielded from the mass destruction they cause for too long.”

Because millions of people use an item legally, exercising a constitutional right recognizing their God-given right to self-defense, sleazy politicians like Newsom twist reality into their cultural Marxist mold, which is to control every aspect of American society by any means necessary.

The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), exists for precisely what Newsom is trying to do. And, as reported by NBC News, contrary to another lie Joe Biden told about gun manufacturers being the only industry with special protections, “pharmaceutical makers and airlines, [also] have special immunity from some types of lawsuits.”

Newsom and his gun-stupid cohorts are not talking about suing Remington, Colt, or S&W for negligence, for which manufacturers should always be liable. They’re talking about suing simply for making a legal product the gun-stupid left hates.
