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?

Shocking Headline: Lying Anti-Gun Liar Spouts Lies

01

In typical gun grabbing politician style, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom called Wayne LaPierre and the NRA liars and racists for the latest video they released.  Gee, like we haven’t heard those claims before…

The problem is, I’ve watched the particular video he shared and I can neither find anything untrue nor can I find a single thing that could remotely, at least in a sane person’s mind, be deemed racist.  That is unless showing a picture of a black criminal who murdered a 9 year old black child is somehow racist.

Here, watch the video for yourself and you be the judge:

As far as Wayne’s claims that the feds are not doing anything to prosecute the existing federal laws, he is exactly correct.  In fact, a couple of years ago, in a meeting with the NRA, Vice President Biden specifically stated that the Feds are too busy to investigate the violations of current law.  More recently than that, yet another case, one in which a cop died as a direct result of a straw purchase, the feds once again failed to strictly enforce the law, and merely slapped the wrist of the felon who provided the gun to the murderer.  In my book, nothing Wayne said in that video remotely constitutes a lie, and I’m pretty sure most cops would agree with me.  We see it all too often when people arrested for gun crimes get plea bargained down, or charges dropped.

Newsom was not the first anti-gun lefty to lie about this video though.  In fact, I first became aware of this video when watching another video, one done by Colion Noir in which he slams a writer at the Huffington Post, a writer who claims to be a “gun guy” himself.  If you have not seen it, Colion’s rebuttal video is spot on, and really hammers the HuffPo “gun guy” while simultaneously addressing the only part of Wayne’s video that I can remotely assume Newsom was calling racist.

Here is the problem with this situation though, Newsom is the Lt. Governor of the State of California, not some half-witted, self-professed “gun guy” at an über liberal online “news” website who cannot perform a simple Google search.   The fact that a sitting Lt. Governor can spout such nonsense, such outright untruths, and not face, at the very least, some hard questions from the mainstream media, well that my friends is a very sad sign of the times we live in.  That said, while the MSM seems content to let such falsehoods fly unchallenged, I will not stand by and let such behavior go unchecked.  Here is where I call out Newsom, yet again.

Hey Lt. Gov. Newsom, instead of doing nothing but spewing that tired anti-gun, anti-NRA rhetoric that is all so common to those who are trying to push laws that directly violate the bill of rights, why not get specific?  If that video is so “full of lies (big surprise)” as you claim, it should be a simple very task to actually point out just one of those lies, should it not?  Why not support your claim with facts and statistics that prove that Wayne and the NRA are lying?  What about this video is so “incredibly racist” that it causes you to suggest it is shameful?  Please point to specifics.

The problem is, you can’t!  Because nothing Wayne said was a lie, and nothing he said was racist.  The only liar in this mix is you, Gavin Newsom!  You sir, are the liar. 

Many times since Newsom announced his new push to violate the bill of rights, to further burden the lawful gun owning residents of one of the most already unfriendly states for gun owners…  oops, I mean his push to “reduce gun violence,” I have publicly challenged him to debate the efficacy of his proposals, and every time all that we hear are crickets.  So, once again, I challenge you, Gavin Newsom, to publicly debate your proposed legislation and its potential to actually reduce “gun violence.”  It is time for you to stop spewing anti-gun, anti-NRA rhetoric and man up.  Let us sit down like adults and discuss this, instead of acting like a 3rd grader running around the playground spreading lies and calling names.
