‘It’s fair to ask how many will ignore their oaths and participate in citizen disarmament like we saw during Hurricane Katrina and in numerous examples since then. Have the lessons of “just following orders” been forgotten, assuming they were ever taught? How many even consider the concept of “lawful orders” from command, especially when, as far as they know, the Gavin Newsom or Andrew Cuomo infringement du jour is “the law”?’
A “California bill would limit number of guns people can buy to one per month as state’s new governor takes swipe at gun lobby,” CNBC reports. “A similar measure was vetoed last year by outgoing Gov. Jerry Brown.”
That’s saying something, to be too much “gun control” for Gov. Moonbeam, but it’s not enough for Gavin Newsom who is nothing but an extremist’s extremist. He hates guns, or more accurately, hates armed citizens. When deployed by his security detail, he likes them just fine. After all, this was a guy who, when mayor of San Francisco, had taxpayers foot a $15K+ bill to have an armed police escort accompany him to his wedding in Montana. As lieutenant governor he was allocated $150K. And as governor, the California Highway Patrol Dignitary Protection Section is at his command.
We could do a “lather, rinse, repeat” for every gun-grabbing governor out there.
Pennsylvania’s Tom Wolf, busy trying to illegally kill preemption to make it easier to disarm citizens, has Pennsylvania State Troopers guarding him, albeit he had to replace the guy accused of beating his wife.
In New Jersey, Gov. Phil Murphy is intent on adding yet another Intolerable Act by upping permit “fees” on the guns they have not yet disallowed. Meanwhile, the New Jersey State Police Executive Protection Unit gives him 24/7 armed security.
New York’s Andrew Cuomo dreams up disarmament edicts like the Orwellian-named “SAFE Act” and gets approving media coverage participating in phony “die-ins” under the watchful protection of armed guards. Connecticut’s Dannell Malloy plots his next infringement as his security racks up over a million bucks in overtime.
