13 Dec Will CA Now Ban Guns?
As TLR observed in Aborting Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court’s decision permitting Texas courts to enforce SB 8 (which bans abortions after the 6th week of pregnancy and outsources enforcement to private persons) lights the fuse for Blue States and Red States to compete in vigilante-izing social, economic and political policy, whether that policy is anti-abortion or anti-gun or … anything else. Confirming this, earlier yesterday, California Governor Gavin Newsom tweeted the following:
“SCOTUS is letting private citizens in Texas sue to stop abortion?! If that’s the precedent then we’ll let Californians sue those who put ghost guns and assault weapons on our streets. If TX can ban abortion and endanger lives, CA can ban deadly weapons of war and save lives.”
