Newsom Claims Constitutional Carry Allows People to Carry ‘Weapons of War’

April 11, 2023

In an interview Sunday on MSNBC’s Inside with Jen Psaki, California’s airhead Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) declared that he thinks Florida’s newly-signed constitutional carry law allows people to carry “weapons of war.”

Former White House press propagandist Jen Psaki pointed out that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed constitutional carry on a day when multitudes of protesters were converging on the Tennessee Capitol to demand more gun control.

She asked Newsom to comment on the contrast between the gun controllers’ demands and DeSantis quietly sitting in an office in Florida signing a bill to eliminate the need for Florida residents to get a concealed carry permit.

Newsom suggested DeSantis signed the bill in an office because “he was scared” of the people of Florida, whom Newsom claimed, “overwhelmingly opposed” constitutional carry. He added, “I think the majority of NRA members probably opposed that position.”

Newsom conveniently did not mention that the legislation was backed by the NRA.

Then Newsom talked about constitutional carry in general, saying, “No background checks? None, really? No training? I mean, why would we do that with weapons of war?”

Constitutional carry applies to concealable handguns, not guns that Democrats label label “assault weapons” and/or “weapons of war.” Moreover, federal law requires an FBI background check to be performed when a new or used handgun is purchased at retail, and Florida’s constitutional carry law does not change that.

But Democrats don’t let the facts get in the way of their narrative.
