Mad King Gavin Newsom Goes Full Tyrant On Guns

Mad King Gavin Newsom Goes Full Tyrant On Guns, Offical Image

California – -( The Left Coast’s most petulant potentate, Guvnor Gavin Newsom, usually gives not a single farthing for the goings-on of we common folk, especially after a particularly rowdy bunch tried to usurp his reign through a well-organized recall effort, which nearly cost him the throne as well as feasting at the French Laundry.

However, Sir Gavin took umbrage with a recent decision by the Supreme Court, so he proclaimed that the best way to teach these pesky justices a lesson was by flogging California’s commoners, again, with his favorite cat-o-nine-tails – gun control.

To be clear, Newsom is outraged that the justices let stand a Texas law, which allows private citizens to enforce an abortion ban, so he threatened to punish his own people with a law empowering Californians to enforce a ban on homebuilt firearms, parts kits, and “assault weapons.”

“If states can now shield their laws from review by the federal courts that compare assault weapons to Swiss Army knives, then California will use that authority to protect people’s lives, where Texas used it to put women in harm’s way,” Newsom proclaimed in a hasty press release Saturday. “If the most efficient way to keep these devastating weapons off our streets is to add the threat of private lawsuits, we should do just that.”

In other words, the Governor of California thinks more gun control may force the justices to reconsider their opinion of a Texas law.


Newsom’s petulance knows no bounds. It’s as though decades of strong hair tonics and powerful pomades have addled his wits.

Halfway through the weekend press release, Newsom apparently realized he lacks the sole authority to issue imperial decrees.

“I have directed my staff to work with the Legislature and the Attorney General on a bill that would create a right of action allowing private citizens to seek injunctive relief, and statutory damages of at least $10,000 per violation plus costs and attorney’s fees, against anyone who manufactures, distributes or sells an assault weapon or ghost gun kit or parts in the State of California,” his statement reads.

Clearly, the haircut-who-would-be-king is struggling for attention and relevancy. The one-time presidential contender is now the butt of too many jokes, most of which are uncomfortable and true. California is not the workers’ paradise it purports to be. Businesses and residents are voting with their feet and leaving in droves.

The hasty weekend memo says a lot about how Newsom thinks and reacts under pressure – immediately defaulting to more gun control as if it’s no big thing. Unfortunately, it says a lot about many Californians, too, and their willingness to tolerate this ongoing abuse of their God-given constitutional rights.

Some folks have written off California in terms of gun rights, which isn’t fair. There are many good people and active gun-rights groups operating there behind the lines. If history has taught us anything, it is that ultimately, freedom will prevail. We saw that in the former Soviet Union and its satellite states. We will see that in California, too.

Mad King Newsom of the Golden State cannot reign forever. All it will take is a group of souls who have grown tired of the type of tyranny exemplified in this case, where one man can impose harsh new rules on law-abiding gun owners just to garner a few headlines and make a political point.

Deplorable Bill

This is tyranny and tyranny has legal, legitimate, lethal consequences. This SHOULD be done through the courts assuming there are still constitutionally based courts in commieforignation. The king and queen of France learned this the hard way. King George and the British parliament also learned this the hard way. Eventually, after decades of humble complaints, the colonials, our founding fathers, were forced to fight for their GOD given rights and freedoms. It hit the fan when the British military got wind of a weapons cashe at Concord. That’s correct, the final straw was gun control. Gun control/people control was the… Read more »

CA courts will automatically side with Newsom, so will the circuit courts – that option is dead, unless the SCOTUS strikes it down with a case in the docket now. This is going to turn into a civil war – not only for gun rights in shitbag liberal states, but also for the covid lockdowns, vaccine mandates, federal over reach, and of course the agenda to “by 2030, you will own nothing”. The reckoning will be fun – not one state government (blue states) will last 24 hours when things “get hot” – but the good news is that the… Read more »


Well.. until people stop lining up 20 cars deep at mcdonalds to pay for a $3 biscuit and $4 gallon gas there won’t be any civil war. This is a war on the lower middle class working poor and there won’t be a civil war when a bunch of upper middle class are still getting a piece of that $3 biscuit.


news flash. there is NOWHERE in the State of California where one can urchase motor fuel for under five bucks the gallon, and some are pressing six.


Not true. I just paid $4.99.

American Cynic

If guns really are that dangerous, and we should confiscate the guns of law abiding Americans, then why hasn’t one single anti-gun Leftist been capped between the eyes yet? Because law abiding gun owners are just that, law abiding. They don’t kill indiscriminately; certainly not over disagreements. Not even criminals kill unless, one way or another, there is something in it for them; as misguided as that may be. One would have to look toward the insane to solve the truly senseless killings. For everyone else, the concept of being shot at is enough of a deterrent to prevent senseless… Read more »

Can’t argue with that. Just the fact that you and other commentators, here, recognize it, is comforting, MC, brother!

My guess is Mr. Newscum is not familiar with the end of would be tyrants, his aunt Nasty seems plenty worried at the moment.

On one hand we have a right to arms written in the Constitution & the Holy Bible, on the other we have a sacrifice of a childs life (also known as Baal worship & written about in the Bible.)
Newsome has made a teenager’s comment in an adult world. What a fool.


A couple of years ago? How about 50. The Progressive New Left has been marching through our institutions for nearly 50 years, mostly unnoticed but very effective. They have rendered our once great Republic and our culture rubble. Go to any progressive utopia and witness the evidence. Ravin’ Gavin is now simply resorting to oppression to maintain power.


The Progressive Old Left got Franklin Roosevelt in office and kept him in office.

A majority of Americans have wanted socialism/communism for much more than 50 years.

Having the government take from “the rich” and give to people who will vote for totalitiarians is nothing new. Once they get in power on that basis, they push forward the rest of their agenda.

Yup. Many of the old hippies of Berserkeley and the People’s Park debacle, Kent State, etc, went on to become cawlidge perfessers, and continue their mental destruction on the sly. Some are coming out of thei shadows and really wreaking havoc. Like the Gabbling subject of this piece, his pal the Cheesey Pudding up in SF, his “deal auld Auntie” withher iron fist running the House, and that Gascon clwon pretending to be the law and order guy in LA County.


At age 81, 4 years ago, I and my wife sold our two homes in Taxifornia and split for rural Texas. Never looked back, except to laugh at the fools there who voted for these slimeballs.


Newsflash to wannabe King Gavin: Abortion is not a right. Keeping and bearing arms — and all accessories attending thereto — is. No one has standing to sue anyone for the peaceable exercise of any right.


Dumb ass!! The 1st amendment is a “right” but I dare you threaten a person or worst a school!! Idiot!!




The Progressive New Left has been at its work undetected by most since 1974 and the publication of the Prairie Fire Manifesto. That document relaunched the flower child, pro communist and anti war movement in to an anti Western Civilization movement led by the likes of Billy Ayers and the Weather Underground. Their long march through the institutions and virtues of Western Civilization is now complete. As evidence I bring you the monopoly driven government hegemony of public education. Your kids have been indoctrinated for the past 45 years. Just because you were asleep as were most conservatives and Republicans… Read more »

WTF are you talking about?


Sorry, I wrote CA off a long time ago. Stop spending limited resources in that crap hole and let them swim in their own urine. Stop all 2A related manufacturing and sales in CA (yes including popo and state agencies and military). They want it, give it to them in spades.

The pro 2nd amendment people in CA don”t “want it.”

Why are you so committed to doing something that Moms Demand Action and Democrat politicians have been unable to do?

Why would you want firearm manufacturers not to sell into the consumer channel in California?


Shannon agrees with you.


That’s what one Mr. Ronnie Barrett told all the LEO agencies in Californicate to do…FOAD!


Hazcat wants firearm manufacturers to not sell to pro 2nd Amendment non-government employees.

This is what Moms Demand Action wants – “civlians” to be unable to buy firearms.


A more nuanced approach would be to refuse to sell anything to the government and agencies, that law-abiding citizens can’t have.


Didjya happen to read, right here on Ammoland, John Crump’s three part series on Auntie Fah and Some Lives Matter? That was written back in 2017, reposted here earlier this year. He’s dne his omework, and exposed both, and their funding system, for what i tis.

SO don’t go saying it all came from outta nowhere for most of us. He conformed much of what I had suspected but not taken the time to dig out. He did. Thanks, John.


Wonder if petty temporary potentates, such as Gavin Newsome, realize
when you threaten a nation with taking away their rights established 230+ years ago; you are getting very far out on thin ice in late March.


Or Abbott!!!


DeeMoKkkRAT. Killing babies is not a right. Your body, your choice. A baby inside you is not your body.


I5 is unfortunate that useful idiots like Newsom and his ilk have never read the wise words of Robert A. Heinlein. “An armed society is a polite society manners are good when one may have to backup their actions with their life!”

A hanging always brings good people together. lol


The problem with his tactic to allow private suits against mfg’s & sellers of assault weapons and/or ghost gun parts kits is federal law preempts state law & regulations in this case. The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act protects mfg’s, wholesalers & dealers from lawsuits arising from the criminal use of their products. Gavin has other problems with his recommendation. One is ghost guns are legal in CA if when the owner/builder finishes the frame or receiver registers the firearm with the CADOJ & marks it with the serial no. generated by the CADOJ. Two is assault weapons… Read more »


California, Got What They Wanted after the recall election, they had a chance to take that SLIME BALL OUT, but their liberal’s kept him in so you get to live under El SUPREMO, GAVIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I tell try to explain to idiotic people just how did an old guy got all those guns and equipment in that Hotel room. Also, just how did the same old guy get two pieces of 800 lb Hurricane glass out of those windows without proper tools and a Crane?
Having spent almost 10 years in the Construction industry, I saw how Glazers work at their trade. It’s no cake walk!


So are you saying each of the window panes weigh 800 pounds? Had no idea… Just how thick are they? Shooter did not remove the windows, he just shot through them. However you’ve got me wondering, comparing holes visible in news photos to what happens when shooting through a windshield. If hurricane glass includes laminations similar to automotive safety glass – would like to see a demonstration of what a few hundred rounds will do to it. Have seen windshield with many rounds through it (possibly over 100) – which makes me wonder. Windshield maintains shape even after taking a… Read more »


Those window pains on skyscrapers are held in place by VHB adhesive tape. They use tape as any hard fastening system can’t compensate for thermal expansion and contraction of the class and surrounding framing materials. The tape also provides great weather and insulation for the seam. It’s not super easy to do, but a long box cutter can be used along the seam to once again fee the glass. I watched a Modern Marvels episode on the stuff and its many uses. They even show a demonstration where two 8″ steel discs coated with the tape between a pair of… Read more »

The only problem with Newsome’s directive and which will get any action or directive thrown out of court is that we have the Constitutional Right of the Second Amendment Right To Keep & Bear Arms. There is no constitutional right to abort and murder babies.

So funny since all he is doing is taking a CONSERVATIVE- Texas- Idea and applying it to another right.

This is what You on the right have created; as I have said for years no matter your ideology when you pass what you claim is a “reasonable restriction” it allows those of hte opposing ideology to do the same to a right they want to restrict.


Me writing this on this bullshit hating website is useless since it won’t be approved until next Monday but I agree totally with you. It’s funny. The right don’t know what da fuc they want. Life or death?? Pick one and stick to it across the board!! The right are ass backwards folks. Smh. Kinda glad that Cali acted that way. Dumb ass Abbott is screwing it up for all!!!


Keep dreaming, illiterate potty-mouth DeeMoKkkRAT


You fail to comprehend the difference.. The Gabbling Nuisance is showboating, pleading for attention, and desparately trying to control the narrative. He can no more mandate this than he cound mandate car owners and victims cansue Ford or GM for what someone else did with their car. As is classic to the personality of those of certain sexual proclivities (which class include the Nuisance) he is demonstratinghis strong bent to dominate, subdue, overpower, direc,t rule, over others, whether he has any right or call to do so or not. Could he do the same with a “law” “allowing” me to… Read more »


Isn’t this sooo much similar to racist ass Abbott?!?! Yep it is. I live in the Lone Star state and I can’t wait for the jerk to be “primaryed”!!!


Racist says racist.
Sure thing, DeeMoKkkRat, I’m sure you’ll just love Gov West.

Since when is killing unborn babies a right supported by the Bill of Rights?
Your comparison is FAIL.


But when has killing period in any fashion shape or form other than treason is a Bill of Right??


Abortion, according to you.

AZ Lefty

All he is doing is Taking those Texas conservative Principals and applying them to CA


wow, so wrong! how is preventing lawful citizens from doing what they have been doing forever, defending themselves, anywhere near the same as allowing people (because i don’t want to leave out the men who can have babies) kill their babies?
one is a Constitutional Right and the other one is an illegal law that wasn’t produced in congress. can you figure out which one is which?


@AZ Lefty kinda right. People with guns can kill people. Death penalty kills people. Let’s do away with killing ALL people. The true meaning of ALL LIVES MATTERS!! People on the Right choose their politics like darts or a la cart. I never understand why the right supported the death penalty but propose a woman’s right to choose. Anyways what Abbott has done in Texas will backfire over the next 10 years. White will “still” get abortions but some people of color will not be able to afford to travel out of state to get one therefore there will be… Read more »


Deeranged Deemokkkrat, if you hate murder why do it? An unborn baby’s body is not your body, not your choice. Stop using abortion as birth control, you lazy slunt.

you got it upside downa nd backwards. The Texas “conservatives” are doing what they can to protect human life. Might not yet have escaped their Mothers’ wombs intact, but that has nothing to do with their humanity. That aint no litter of puppies in there. That same principle,m that of protecing life, also has driven texas to put in place some of the most unrestrictive laws regarding firearms, because why? That state’s government realise that when the man on the street has no effective means to defend himself and family, he’s as good as dead.. as is seen latelyin so… Read more »


Even with all those “Texas” laws, Texas still has a high murder and gun violence rate. Probably why I carry. No pun intended. But you got to ask why do others want me unarmed?? I kinda get it. But I also get getting rid of the death penalty!!!


I want you unarmed because DeeMoKkkRats commit 99% of the violent crimes, and those who are armed would be happy to help use their arms to disarm loyal Americans.
