Governor issues harsh criticism of judge’s ‘love letter to the gun lobby’
Of course they are disgusted by the idea of people enjoying their civil rights with fewer encumbrances.
Also, the idea that a judge is motivated by the gun lobby and not the Constitution is grotesque. These people have no decency, accusing everyone that disagrees with them of being bought.
Steve Wagstaffe, San Mateo County district attorney, deeply opposed the ruling.
“I have spent decades watching carnage by criminals using assault weapons on the streets of our state inflicting incredible pain to the victims and families of victims. It is so disappointing that California’s effort to reduce this violence is crushed by one judge’s decision,” Steve Wagstaffe said. “Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who championed assault rifle bans, must be looking down from heaven in disgust at this decision.”
This is a bald faced lie.
Dianne Feinstein is in hell. She’s looking up.
State officials strongly condemned the court’s decision. In a statement on Thursday, Gov. Gavin Newsom vowed to challenge Benitez’s decision.
“Today’s radical ruling — comparing an assault rifle to a bowie knife — is a direct insult to every victim of a mass shooting and their families. Californians’ elected representatives decided almost 35 years ago that weapons of war have no place in our communities. Today, Judge Benitez decided that he knows better, public safety be damned,” Newsom said.
California is a violent shithole but California only cares about stopping law abiding citizen from buying certain types of guns.
They don’t bother to stop mass gun theft from FedEx or UPS or stopping homeless from dealing guns and drugs on the streets.
It’s not the violence that offends them, it’s the civil rights of citizens.
Good for Judge Benitez, I hope SCOTUS agrees with him.
