Posted on 01/25/2023 7:49:00 AM PST by ChicagoConservative27
California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) railed against “weapons of war” after the suspected Half Moon Bay shooter used a handgun to kill seven people.
Breitbart News reported the suspected shooter killed seven people in separate shootings on two mushroom farms early Monday afternoon.
CBS News noted that the suspected shooter “drove himself to the substation located between the two businesses and surrendered to deputies.” They pointed out that the weapon used was “a [semiautomatic] handgun.”

Just lighting up the “gun safety” issue for his 2024 presidential run. Of course he is indeed ignorant, but then so are his constituency.
“a [semiautomatic] handgun”
Unless you are using a pirate gun or you are Alex Baldwin, every modern handgun is “semi automatic.” You pull the trigger it fires. Then it loads another round—either through a movement of the cylinder or through the slide movement to the rear.
Actually, I think we have an “old Asian guy” problem in CA.
And it’s worth asking him some pointed questions.
Among those would be how could these tragic events happen considering California has some of the strictest gun laws in the country?
Democrats have overwhelming majorities in the California state legislature and they have a Democrat Governor in Newsom. So Democrats in California are in position to do whatever the hell they want, on gun control or any other issue.
“California was once a nice place...”
I presume he is not using armed security these days, is he......
They must exaggerate EVERYTHING
Your 2024 candidate on The Republicans Are Bad ticket.
I expect many more mass shootings, a relentless PR campaign against Republicans attempting to defend the 2nd Amendment, and the media joining the attack. The abortion issue will be dropped and the sheeple will now fear for their safety with all those big, bad Republican gun owners running around.
As I understand it, a revolver is not a “semiautomatic” firearm, but rather a “repeating” firearm.
Disarmament of civilians
are also “weapons of war” Gavin.
But as a national socialist ( nazi) he already knows that.
If they can call every black tube an AR-15, we can call revolvers Semi-Automatic.
Newsome and company never disappoint.
He’s a scumbag, Jim.
Newsome is an IDIOT, there are SO MANY firearms owners in this country now they are not stupid people, calling these firearms weapons of war he is whistling past the graveyard NO ONE who is a firearm owner is listening to this utter BS!!! He goes on the national stage he will fail miserably aside from the utter mess CA. has become there is a plethora of ads just waiting to be broadcast from coast to coast!! CA. is a cesspool once a beautiful state WITH EVERYTHING anyone could possibly want for the absolute PERFECT life, weather, mountains for skiing, beaches, beautiful forests, ALL DESTROYED by this ASSHAT!! Can’t wait for this pretty boy to run for POTUS!!! Before and after pics of CA. will be endless!!
I know that is what lever action rifles are called.
I was basing this off my own experience. I have a revolver that holds 8 rounds. I have a pistol that holds 8 rounds. If they are both loaded, I can simply pull the trigger 8 times to shoot eight rounds each. There is no separate “cocking or loading” action required (as there would be a lever rifle or single action revolver.)
I understand the technicality..but it walks like a duck and quacks like (a loud) duck.
Firearm Used in Killing of San Francisco Woman Was Stolen From BLM Vehicle: Source
The shooter was an illegal immigrant who stole a gun from BLM (not "Black Lives Matter" but "Bureau of Land Management")
He was found not guilty of murder by a SF jury and the one weapons charge on which he was convicted by the jury was overturned.
California appeals court overturns conviction in Kate Steinle death
Let's make the rest of the U.S. more like California.
It is no more a technicality than the difference between manual and automatic transmissions. It is what they are called.
Neither a revolver, nor a lever or bolt action rifle is a semiautomatic weapon.
That family keeps hammers around.
Great. That means we can suppress them:
“a revolver is not a “semiautomatic” firearm”
Until the ATF changes the definition on a whim.
