California’s New Gun Bill Is Bad Law and Dumb Politics


California Governor Gavin Newsom signed SB 1327, legislation modeled after Texas’s SB 8 bill, into law last week. The bill allows individuals to sue Californians for selling or attempting to sell particular types of guns, as well as for selling weapons to anyone under the age of 21.

Senior Associate Alex Berke, writing for the Daily Beast, breaks down the ways in which playing the right’s game will fail to push progressive policies. She explains why this approach will not achieve the intended result: “Some have argued that Newsom is also trolling the Supreme Court, hoping that challenges to SB 1327 will force the conservative-dominated court to confront the mistake it made in allowing Texas’ ‘abortion bounty law’ to stand—or at least to face its own partisan hypocrisy. But here’s the thing, Republicans don’t care if you think they’re hypocrites.”
