Every tragedy is an excuse for leftists to push their soul-crushing agenda.
That’s certainly on display following a shooting in Sacramento.
Now Gavin Newsom is using weekend carnage to push politics while the cause gets swept under the rug.
Before police could even begin to figure out what happened, Newsom was exploiting a horrific shooting to push his gun control agenda.
The deaths of six people, along with 12 more injured, has become the latest example Newsom is using to drum up support for swiping guns from a population in obvious need of self-defense.
“The scourge of gun violence continues to be a crisis in our country, and we must resolve to bring an end to this carnage,” Newsom said.
Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg joined Newsom, saying gun violence is “the scourge of our city, state, and nation.”
Even Joe Biden got in on taking advantage of the crisis.
“Today, America once again mourns for another community devastated by gun violence,” Biden said in a statement. “But we must do more than mourn; we must act.”
The bar district fight broke out around 2:00 a.m. Saturday night as crowds were pouring out of the city’s entertainment district.
More than 100 rounds were fired in the melee.
It’s likely so many bullets managed to fly because nobody was equipped to stop the perpetrators in their tracks.
For more than 27 years, California has been controlled by far-left Democrats.
That’s certainly enough time to prove that leftist policies and community attitudes focused around getting guns off the streets merely act to empower criminals.
Back in 2016, Vox magazine accidentally revealed that blue states have 42% more “mass shootings” than red states on a per capita basis.
Of course, the most dangerous places are those with the strictest gun laws because the odds are stacked in favor of the criminals.
California Governor Gavin Newsom – who seems to have Presidential aspirations – has vowed to create a law that would allow any citizen to sue gun manufacturers.
The leftist, who is Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, first proposed that law as retaliation after the United States Supreme Court upheld a Texas law allowing anyone to file lawsuits against abortion providers.
In his twisted way of thinking, Newsom wants to punish conservatives who don’t want babies to be killed by implementing legislation that would leave families unable to protect themselves.
For all they try to present themselves as the party of compassion, Democrats sure are brutal.
And if Newsom gets his way, California will turn into an absolute hellhole nobody even wants to visit.
