California Gov. Gavin Newsom goes to make use of Texas’s abortion regulation as a template for brand new gun laws.

Newsom said in a statement:

I’m outraged by yesterday’s U.S. Supreme Court docket choice permitting Texas’s ban on most abortion providers to stay in place and largely endorsing Texas’s scheme to insulate its regulation from the basic protections of Roe v. Wade. But when states can now protect their legal guidelines from assessment by the federal courts that examine assault weapons to Swiss Military knives, then California will use that authority to guard folks’s lives, the place Texas used it to place ladies in hurt’s means.

I’ve directed my employees to work with the Legislature and the Legal professional Normal on a invoice that will create a proper of motion permitting personal residents to hunt injunctive aid, and statutory damages of at the least $10,000 per violation plus prices and lawyer’s charges, in opposition to anybody who manufactures, distributes, or sells an assault weapon or ghost gun package or elements within the State of California. If essentially the most environment friendly approach to hold these devastating weapons off our streets is so as to add the specter of personal lawsuits, we must always just do that.”

Newsom’s announcement is strictly what Republicans feared. There’s a cause why the gun teams have filed a quick with the Supreme Court docket urging that the Texas regulation be overturned.

It was solely a matter of time earlier than Democrats began utilizing the Texas abortion regulation template to hold out their priorities. Think about laws that made it straightforward for residents to sue firms which are destroying the setting.  Not solely may it occur, however it’s prone to occur.

Texas Republicans handed an unlawful invoice that the Supreme Court docket nonetheless has not overturned. The longer the Texas abortion invoice stays the regulation, the larger the disaster grows for the Republican Occasion.
