Calif. Gov. Gavin Newsom: Mass shootings caused by toxic masculinity

[Ed. – He’s right, you know. That’s why guns are long and hard.]

Kudos to California Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom for finding something upon which to blame mass shootings other than President Trump or the Second Amendment. Unfortunately, Newsom’s scapegoat is just as ridiculous.

During an emergency meeting on gun violence on Monday, Newsom said that the conversation on mass shootings should focus on toxic masculinity, given that such shootings “overwhelmingly, almost exclusively, are [committed by] males, boys, men.”
