California’s highest elected attention whore, alleging to be governor but increasingly feeling like a bad “Catch Me If You Can” reboot, has signed, what in his own words he describes as a “Sin Tax” against the ownership of firearms and ammunition. The new laws penalize firearms and ammunition at an additional 11% state tax. Another limits carry in public places New Mexico style, but at least the CA legislation is legislation and not a medical emergency executive order.
He even knows these laws will probably not survive court challenge, and I once again want to start see and passed legislation that holds elected officials criminally accountable if they willfully and knowingly push unconstitutional laws or policies in bad faith, just to waste time and screw with the courts, and give their voter base a reach around. It is a willful misuse of the office and government resources for petty politics.
Instead this man will likely be on the presidential ticket by 2028. A stockade having rotten food thrown at him and smelling rancid farts in downtown LA where he could do some good in that position would be preferable but California isn’t that sick of him yet as they slowly rot from the coastal political insanity.
If you can’t tell. I’m annoyed. Not feeling very “journalistic” on this one. Ranty, yes. Very ranty.
Here’s USA Today for journalism.
Two new laws regulating gun control in California were signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom on Tuesday. The laws prohibit people from carrying firearms in most public places and doubles the taxes on guns and ammunition sold in the state.
Only the rich may have and carry guns. That is literally all this is. If you can pay for it you can do it. Higher income brackets are less likely to be victimized by orders of magnitude, according to the NCVS, so basically screw you poor people. How dare you be poor. If you weren’t poor you could afford safety like us, and not need silly guns, but you could afford them if you want them. Sucks to suck.
Can we flush this turd already? No, because he has a rabid illogical fanbase who don’t actually care he’s flushing money straight to the crapper, tying up the courts, and still expects to lose because he is in violation of the US Constitution. Enough blue or bust types won’t abandon him because of their fear of what ‘red team’ or even a more centrist and effective blue team player who has been demonized enough might do.
Why should we respect these people and grant them any manner of authority? Why? Why should we respect the laws they pass or have any faith they are acting in our best interests anymore? They so flagrantly just work their pet electoral bases until they clap for them like trained seals and vote accordingly and I’m just tired of it.
See you in court Gavin, hope you choke on it. But you’re looking forward to wasting your constituents time and money, it’s not your money obviously.
