AZ Gov. Relies on Never Trumper David French to Justify Gun Control Push

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey’s (R) media and communications wing is using Never Trumper David French to justify the Governor’s current gun control push.

Ducey has been angling to add gun control to Arizona, one of the most gun-friendly states in the Union, ever since the February 14, 2018, Parkland school shooting in Florida. The central component to Ducey’s gun control push is a Red Flag law that creates STOP Orders. Such orders allow guns to be confiscated from Arizonans.

On August 15, 2018, the AZ Capitol quoted Ducey describing his STOP (Severe Threat Order of Protection) as the “crown jewel” of a gun control push that began after Parkland.

He said, “I think the STOP plan — the Severe Threat Order of Protection — is the crown jewel of our safe schools plan.” He added, “It’s the one tool that could have eliminated the mass shootings that have happened in other places in the country.”

In reality, confiscatory Red Flag Laws have not stopped some of the highest profile shootings in our nation’s recent history.

For example, Illinois has a confiscatory Red Flag Law, but that did not prevent the February 15, 2019, Henry Pratt Company shooting that killed five innocents. California also has a confiscatory Red Flag Law, but that did not prevent the November 7, 2018, Borderline Bar & Grill shooting that killed 12. Moreover, Florida also adopted a Red Flag Law after the Parkland attack, and that law did not prevent the January 23, 2019, SunTrust Bank shooting in which five innocents were killed.

Breitbart News reached out to Ducey’s office for comment on his support of Red Flag Laws and a member of his media/communications team responded by showing us that Never Trumper David French supports the gun control push. They sent us a quote from French, in which he described Ducey’s gun control as “perhaps the most intelligent policy response to school shootings (and, honestly, mass shootings more generally) that [he has] ever read.”
