Nevada governor hits back against Jerry Brown’s gun control comments

As reported by the Sacramento Bee:

Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval on Sunday joined the governor of Arizona in hitting back California Gov. Jerry Brown’s comments that their states’ lenient gun laws are a “gigantic back door through which any terrorist can walk.”

Brown, asked in Paris on Saturday if stricter gun control laws were warranted following the mass shooting in San Bernardino, said, “California has some of the toughest gun control laws of any state. And Nevada and Arizona are wide open, so that’s a gigantic back door through which any terrorist can walk.”

Sandoval spokeswoman Mari St. Martin said in a prepared statement Sunday that Brown’s remarks were “wrong and irresponsible.”

“This type of political rhetoric is discouraging to hear at a time when all Americans are looking for thoughtful, honest leadership,” she said.


  1. Isn’t Brown wonderful? Open mouth, insert foot. What a jerk. I guess he didn’t see the survey of countries with the most and least crimes committed with a gun. Switzerland was the lowest – congratulations to them. Good reason for that: when citizens serve in the military, upon discharge they are given their gun. When so many citizens have guns, what stupid criminal is going to take the chance? Remember: when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.

    • …and that gun is an Honest-to-God assault rifle (selective fire) that they are required to keep ready, along with the kit (gear, ammo, and mags) that are supplied with it.

  2. Cali’s(f) Clown Jerry Brown has the toughest gun laws in the country. And like Chicago and other loser democratic controlled areas it has the highest murder rate. Way to go moonbeam, way to go!

  3. CA has a gun-control scheme that goes back to the Great Anarchist Scare of the WW-1 era. And, it is just that, a scheme, for it hasn’t prevented a crime that anyone knows about in the intervening 90 years.
    Like flies, it just bothers people.
