Signing a bill that allows California resident’s to sue gun makers, a la’ Texas Abortion’ way……
Not the government mind you….
Just the people….
Gavin Newsom is keeping it going against Republicans and the Right….
2024 is less than 2 years away and Joe Biden’s polling approval ‘s are still around just 40% and his disapproval’s ABOVE 50%…..
While Mr. Newsom has repeatedly insisted that he has no intention of running for the White House in 2024, his actions at times seem to belie his statements. The Florida ad — a $105,000 spot worth more in free publicity — turned heads in national political circles. So did his visit to Washington this month and his declarations this springthat fellow Democrats were too meekly responding to Republican moves.
“I think he realizes that Democrats are hungry for a hero,” said Kim Nalder, a political science professor at California State University, Sacramento. “He’s building a profile as an alternative on the left to this aggressive policymaking we’ve seen by Republicans in recent years.”
No piece of legislation better encapsulates Mr. Newsom’s fight-fire-with-fire attitude than the bill co-opting a Texas anti-abortion tacticto enforce California bans on assault weapons and ghost guns.
Senate Bill 1327 aims to bury those who deal in banned guns in litigation. Awards of at least $10,000 per weapon, and legal fees, will be offered to plaintiffs who successfully sue anyone who imports, distributes, manufactures or sells assault-style weapons, .50-caliber rifles, guns without serial numbers or parts that can be used to build firearms that are banned in California.
“No one is saying you can’t have a gun,” said State Senator Bob Hertzberg, a veteran San Fernando Valley Democrat who was tapped by the governor to craft and shepherd the complex legislation. “We’re just saying there’s no constitutional right to an AR-15, a .50-caliber machine gun or a ghost gun with the serial number filed off.”
The governor and Senator Hertzberg see S.B. 1327 as a way to test the Supreme Court, arguing that the justices cannot reject California’s law if it lets the Texas abortion law stand. The situation also presents an irresistible opportunity for Mr. Newsom to criticize Texas on the national stage….
Newsom can do all he wants to become a media darling…
If he can’t attarch more of Black vote than Vice President Harris?
He’s NOT gonna be the first in line to run for the Democratic Presidential nomination come 2024….
