California Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom has announced he intends to create legislation that would enable Democrat activists to sue companies that manufacture and sell assault weapons, styling the proposal as a vindictive-partisan reverse engineering of the Texas abortion law. The law in question, upheld by the Supreme Court on Friday, allows citizens of Texas to sue abortionists for damages.
Newsom announced the draconian proposal in a Saturday press release.
California’s firearm laws are constantly litigated over, removed, and reinstated on appeal, with such a proposal likely to ensnare law abiding patriots who obtain AR-15’s with the capacity to feed ammunition from magazines that can hold 30 rounds. It’s unclear how Newsom’s partisan-slop legislation would even define an assault weapon, a term with a questionable and decisively political origin. His definition might even apply to California-compliant weapons modified to only accept 10 round magazines.
