Devoid of Facts

newsomGavin Newsom is on a mission, a mission based on lies and fairytales, and one that has absolutely no hope of solving the problem he claims to want to cure.  As a cop in the state where he is pushing this agenda, I cannot stand by and let this liar further destroy this state, and create more victims out of good, law abiding citizens in the process.

“I just simply, this sort of mythology, the guy with the gun that’s going to come save the day, I mean, so right out of the movies, sort of this gun-slinging fantasy. The reality is, it’s most likely to create more harm, more damage, more lost lives in those circumstances.”

This guy is a freaking lunatic, and he is also 100% wrong, but since when has that stopped politicians who are pushing gun control laws?

The fact of the matter is, his statement here is the only thing of mythology, the liberal, anti-gun mythology that is.  There are absolutely ZERO instances that back his ludicrous claim.  I can think of a only a handful of instances where an armed citizen may have fired their weapon when not legally justified, but in none of those incidents were innocent people injured or killed, and in none of those incidents, were matters made worse as he claims.

The fact of the matter is that there is an abundance of cases which absolutely demonstrate the opposite of what Newsom claims.  Good guys (and gals) with guns have indeed stopped a number of mass shootings.  In fact, here is a list of 12 such incidents.  Besides those 12, there many are others still, and I have been at countless events where a good guy with a gun stopped a crime on a smaller level (not mass shootings, but just individual personal crimes).  It happens every single day in the US!

Getting beyond that idiotic assertion, that it is better to be unarmed in the event of an attack by a crazed gunman, the next comment to ooze out of his mouth is nothing more than an outright, bold faced lie designed to anger the ignorant listener.

“Yeah, well, I mean, look, you get worse when you live in a country with 300 plus million guns, in a country that the NRA is out there promoting guns for terrorists. Let me just repeat what I just said, as audacious as it…  They believe that everybody deserves a gun, including terrorists. From 2007 in this country, we’ve been trying to close a loophole that denied people who are on the no-fly zone (sic) in the United States the ability — those are the folks that can’t get on airplanes”

Let me state this very clearly for those who may not understand the difference, a difference that I am pretty damned sure Newsom is well aware of:
Being on a “terror watch list” and being a “terrorist” are two entirely different things!

Mr. Colion Noir does an excellent job of debunking this BS claim in the following video:

The problem with Gavin Newsom is that his agenda is all that matters to him.  He is a want-to-be tyrant who is using lies to fire up emotions in order to manipulate the uneducated and weak minded voters, a tactic that, sadly, is often successful in California (see Prop47 for proof).

Again, as I have said many times in the past, my open challenge to Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom still stands.  If you, Gavin Newsom, truly do have a desire to solve the “gun violence” that you are claiming to be addressing, how about having an open debate with someone who has nearly 20 years of experience dealing with it?  What’s the matter Newsom, afraid the public will see you get schooled on the topic by some dumb street cop?
