Sacramento, CA (July 22, 2022) — Firearms Policy Coalition issued the following statement in response to California Governor Gavin Newsom’s signing of anti-rights legislation:
Gov. Gavin Newsom has again shown naked contempt for Californians. He held a press conference today to celebrate the signing of another gun control bill which threatens peaceable people with jail time. By signing Senate Bill 1327, Gov. Newsom capped off a week of signing an exhaustive list of anti-rights legislation into law. This continued assault on the peaceable people of California, made possible by his acolytes in Sacramento, is nothing short of a revocation of the natural rights of those he was elected to represent.
Gov. Newsom has gleefully failed the people of California. In fact, he is boastfully broadcasting his latest legislative power grab in Texas in a twisted victory lap. To be clear, neither the people of Texas nor Californians deserve the rights-restricting agenda that Gov. Newsom and his ilk are set on implementing.
Without reservation, FPC will seek out every available tool to redress this legislative overreach. The fundamental, inalienable rights of the people remain unaffected by the stroke of a pen.
