Newsom FALSELY Blames DeSantis Gun Bill for Hollywood Shooting

California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s obsession with Ron DeSantis backfired Monday night after attempting to blame one of his policies for a recent mass shooting in Florida.



Nine people were shot in Florida’s Hollywood Boardwalk Memorial Day evening, including four minors. The exact motive is currently unknown,  but five suspected gang members have been arrested in connection with the crime, with a sixth still at large.

California Governor Gavin Newsome immediately leaped on the opportunity to blame DeSantis for the shooting, citing a recent bill he signed in April.

“DeSantis signed a permit-less carry bill in April that removes requirements for: -background checks -instruction -training+oversight Until our leaders have the courage to stop bowing down to the NRA and enact common sense gun safety this kind of senseless violence will continue.”

Newsom is wrong, or, at the very least, using misleading phrasing. The bill permitted permitless concealed carry, eliminating the red tape that used to come with being allowed to carry a firearm outside the home.

Sever users on Twitter were quick to reply and point out Newsom’s mistake.

Sigh.. going to need yet ANOTHER @CommunityNotes for a Gavin Newsome tweet. Law isn’t even in effect yet and scooby here is already spewing lies about it. Always having to try and score cheap points off the suffering of others. The law is ONLY available to people LEGALLY able to get a gun, and carry concealed already (So Background checks) Yes, you dont have to take an hour in a room and shoot 3 shots from your gun that isnt really training anyway So no Gavin, you can’t take our rights. stuff it.

One accused him of outright lying.

Another user pointed out that the gunfire was likely due to gang-related violence, which gun laws wouldn’t impact.


Despite Newsom’s challenges, at this point, DeSantis hasn’t bothered to respond to the California Governor himself.
