Gubernatorial candidate compares Obama to Hitler
March 05, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SACRAMENTO — A Republican candidate for California governor is comparing President Barack Obama’s gun control policies with those of dictators such as Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and North Korea’s Kim Jong Il.

State Assemblyman Tim Donnelly sent a message via Twitter on Tuesday with an image that compared what he said were figures who have supported gun rights and those who have supported gun control.

In a statement later in the day from his campaign to The Associated Press, Donnelly said he would not apologize for “pointing out that our current president acts more like a dictator than a leader of a free people.”

In 2012, Donnelly pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges after he was found with a loaded Colt .45 in his carry-on bag at a Southern California airport.
