California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom is no stranger to the gun control debate. In fact, he’s one of the most outspoken gun control proponents in the nation.
Now that Newsom is running for governor, he decided to take to Twitter to target his arch nemesis: the National Rifle Association. What better way to rally his anti-gun followers than by taking shots at the NRA?
It's been 5 years since 20 first graders were shot dead at Sandy Hook. Since then:
14 killed in San Bernardino
49 killed in Orlando
58 killed in Vegas
26 killed in a Texas church
Enough. We have a message for the @NRA: If you hurt people, we ARE coming for your guns. pic.twitter.com/jcOCfs0AJO

Some of the responses from anti-gunners are beyond stupid.

That’s an easy one.
The NRA is taking away my right to live freely in public spaces by enabiling gun violence. Newsom will preserve my right to control my own body, get health coverage, and have my children grow up with clean air and water. He will also protect all citizens’ right to vote.

Not sure what healthcare and environmental issues have to do with guns, but okay?
The message I see is Democrats are murdering psychopaths. How'd you 'finesse' the NRA into this? I always thot ppl were responsible for their actions. Aren't you too old to be a millennial?

Apparently, you are never too old to be a Snowflake.
WHAT ABOUT all the Trump idiots who are immediately going to use their “WHAT ABOUT”-arguments to change the subject to something else, something THEY would rather argue about? What about THEM, huh?

All of us supposed “Trump idiots” are going to say “what about” or “what if” to prove that you guys have some dumbass arguments. Duh.
Things have to change, look at England, Canada and Japan can't buy assault weapons. Nobody but police and military should own assault weapons.

Do you even know what an “assault weapon” is or do you assume that every gun in America is an “assault weapon?”
Doesn't sink in unfortunately!!! Pro gun people will always evoke the Second Amendment paragraph by paragraph! To their liking! 😱😢🚶🔫

Uh…no. We cite the Second Amendment because we are tired of liberals cherry picking what parts of the Constitution they wish to follow.
The @GOP should be ashamed…they continue to reject sensible gun control. 45 cares more about stopping law abiding people from entering this country than dealing with home grown terrorists.
