Projection is the psychological mechanism in which people “project” their own feelings and motives on someone else.
Fittingly, the king of projection hails from the land where movies are made: California’s lizard-person governor, Gavin Newsom. When he’s not personally causing supply-chain problems or infringing on the First and Second Amendment rights of his citizens, he’s busy preparing to do the same thing to the entire nation as soon as he can. As the heir apparent to Biden’s (suspiciously stained) throne, Newsom is laying the groundwork for a Presidential showdown with Republican darling Ron DeSantis. It’s true that there’s a strong contrast between the two states’ gun violence statistics: California is much worse.
Deep down, Newsom knows this. Furthermore, he knows that none of the “sensible gun control” he’s demanding will do any good. But he can’t face the fact that his anti-gun policies have cost the lives of countless Californians, because then he’d have to admit that he’s 100% wrong from scalp to shoe leather and has been for decades. Rather than face reality, Newsom projects his failures onto others.
The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) says California Gov. Gavin Newsom should button his lip instead of trying to blame a new permitless carry law signed by Gov. Ron DeSantis for a Memorial Day shooting in Florida when the law is not yet in effect, especially when shootings continue in the Golden State, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.
“Gavin Newsom’s moronic effort to chastise DeSantis for signing Florida’s permitless carry law shows a level of foolishness I didn’t think was possible,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “Maybe Newsom was so busy railing against DeSantis he didn’t notice three weekend shootings in Oakland, a triple-shooting Saturday in Garden Grove or shooting incidents in Fresno that left one man dead and another man wounded.
“For a man serving as chief executive of a state with horribly restrictive gun laws that haven’t curbed the violence, Gavin Newsom has nothing to brag about,” he continued. “California’s gun laws didn’t prevent two mass shootings in January of this year, or the Mojave shooting last month. The laws didn’t stop the Isla Vista murders in 2014, or San Bernardino in 2015. Ten people were killed in San Jose in May 2021. Maybe Newsom wasn’t in town in April 2022 when six people were murdered in a mass shooting in Sacramento.
“Look at any violent crime chart and California always exceeds Florida in the number of homicides,” Gottlieb added. “Newsom can bask in the warm glow of symbolism provided by Everytown for Gun Safety, which incredulously claims California gun policies save lives, even if the numbers disagree. Facts don’t matter to the gun ban crowd.”
Newsom was fact-checked on his assertion the Memorial Day shooting at Hollywood, Florida was because of laws DeSantis signed. Those laws haven’t yet taken effect, so they had nothing to do with Monday’s incident.
“Maybe Newsom is pointing a finger at Florida and DeSantis in an effort to distract public attention from his failures in his own state,” Gottlieb said. “More people are leaving California and heading to Second Amendment-friendly states such as Florida and Texas. Maybe all of those people just want to live in a state that allows them the ability to defend themselves and fight back.”
