Legislation for the Good of the Citizen!
America was founded on the premise that the government that did less was better. Citizens were to take care of themselves and were to direct their elected officials on many actions. It seems that Governor Gavin Newsom never heard of this concept. He is in the process of fashioning measures that he will push through the legislature.
1. Given the possibility that the Supreme Court will ultimately send the issue of abortion back to the states, Governor Newsom is looking to make California a Sanctuary. If the Governor has his way, California would pay for gas, lodging, child care as well as compensating providers for services rendered to low-income patients who come for an abortion. Of course, this would be covered by the California tax payer.
2. Governor Newsom has announced that he will model a gun control measure in California after the Texas’ abortion ban. The Supreme Court stated that abortion providers have the right to challenge the Texas abortion law in federal court. Newsom has stated that his office will work with the state legislature and attorney general to pass a law that allows private citizens to sue anyone who “manufactures, distributes, or sells an assault weapon or ghost gun kit or parts” in California. “If the most efficient way to keep these devastating weapons off our streets is to add the threat of private lawsuits, we should do just that.” said the Governor
