Gavin Newsom Takes A Cue From Bill Clinton And Feigns Interest In Hunting

posted on November 26, 2015

California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom spent some time recently in the San Joaquin Valley, talking about water policy and trying to attract uncommitted voters for his gubernatorial run. The Sacramento Bee points out that Newsom’s radically anti-gun record is likely to make things difficult for him with the region’s largely rural inhabitants. 

“Last week, after visiting a valley wildlife refuge, (Newsom) said he had been skeet shooting and might go duck hunting for the first time this year,” the Bee reported. It looks like Newsom has taken a page from the Bill Clinton playbook—a good hunting photo-op would support his claim that he isn’t really anti-gun, no matter how much effort he’s been putting into taking away gun owners’ rights. Fortunately for us—but not for Newsom or Clinton—voters tend not to be so easily fooled.
