The alleged MS-13 member who was arrested for gunning down the father and his two sons in San Francisco wasn’t in the forefront of Gavin Newsom’s mind when it came time to make a statement about responsibility – the NRA was. Go to 2:10 in this news video…and take your blood pressure meds.
Now I’m willing to bet that the guy who was arrested (an illegal immigrant who had been previously arrested several times) probably couldn’t have legally bought a gun. So all the restrictions on the ability of law-abiding citizens to buy guns would have done … what, exactly, Mayor?
Patterico has been all over the issue of one issue that intersects our immigration policy – ‘deport the criminals first’. Go read Justin’s comments at Patterico on this one.
Newsom has shown great judgment all along – he did go to rehab after confessing an affair with the wife of his campaign manager (it’s not the sex, it’s the stupid recklessness of who it was with…). Great hair, though.
My checkbook and I’ll be remembering this when the Gov’s race comes along.
