Cory Spartacus Booker’s Outrageous Gun Control Scheme Ignores Basic 2A Rights

BELLEVUE, WA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Democrat presidential aspirant Cory Booker’s far-ranging gun control scheme that calls for five-year licensing, invasive background checks, bans on semiautomatic rifles and original capacity magazines and more amounts to an outrageous plan to turn the Second Amendment right into a government-regulated privilege, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

“With this proposal, Booker isn’t just one of those anti-gun politicians who claims to ‘support the Second Amendment…but’,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “he’s literally throwing a constitutionally-enumerated right into the trash, and he knows it. For a person hoping to be elected to the highest office in the land to advocate such an outrageous proposal isn’t just disappointing, it is disturbing.”

Booker’s plan calls for licensing gun owners on a five-year basis. He would repeal the Lawful Commerce in Arms Act to expose firearms manufacturers to costly junk lawsuits and other legal harassment. He would resurrect the failed one-gun-a-month mandate that never prevented a single crime when it was tried, and later repealed, in South Carolina and Virginia. The Washington, D.C. law was struck down by a federal appeals court in 2015.

The scheme calls for Microstamping, a technology that has not prevented or solved any crime, and would make firearms prohibitively expensive for no discernable benefit. He would push for so-called “universal background checks” that criminals already ignore, and which might actually encourage more gun shop burglaries, thefts from private homes or police cars, and other illegal gun trafficking.

“Proposals like this underscore why American gun owners are increasingly distrustful of all Democrats,” Gottlieb observed. “Booker’s plan is demagoguery on steroids, and it once again targets the wrong people. He doesn’t want to crack down on criminals, he wants to create new ones with the stroke of a pen.

“Booker’s brainstorm is nothing more than a combination of every pie-in-the-sky idea on the gun control wish list,” Gottlieb said. “While his plan is disturbing, what is even more alarming is that not one other Democrat now in the race denounced the plan. If they all agree with Booker, they need to admit it now so voters realize they are all willing to trample on the Bill of Rights.”

    I see Booker’s “Daddy” is up on the platform with him. That alone is enough to brand him a POS.

    About everything that can be said about this Obumer want to be has already been said and I saw no comments that said anything good about him. It is too bad he doesn’t read Ammoland comments because it might wake him up to the idea that he is dispensable.

    Way to go Ammoland – you have given Spartacus more coverage than major media outlets.

    I thought Bloomberg was normally under the podium when Booker was speaking.

    This whack needs to receive his ‘walking papers’ ASAP! That is, if there are ANY people in his district that have more mind left than The Walking Dead? “….they are all willing to trample on the Bill of Rights.” WOW, Bat Pal, somebody just figured out what has been going on since at least The Civil War. Actually, ALL those self-aggrandizing, self-enriching, pols have taken part in ‘changing America’ from what those founders envisioned; it is just a TAD more egregious from those POWER HUNGRY DemonRATS!

    This clown booker did nothing for Newark as mayor. He was only trying to make himself something important. He failed except he fooled enough of the citizens, with help from the DEMOCRAP media, to further himself in politics. Other words another socialist bum advanced to congress by the media even though he is completely unqualified.

    The Commie Collective constantly dreams of implementing a Regime of Unchecked, Unlimited power over the citizens of this country. They intend to make the Freedoms that so many have fought and died for meaningless. Disgraceful, if not down right criminal.

    This man knows he isn’t getting the nomination, so he’s just spewing extreme base speech to keep himself relevant.

    Another politician who openly says he will commit treason if elected to office. If this were 1775 there would already be a warm bucket of tar and a pillow case full of feathers waiting for him and calls for volunteers to operate a line of muskets when the afore mentioned was completed. The second amendment was not created for hunters, sportsmen or collectors, It was created so the citizens have the ability to retain their GOD given rights and freedoms. Like most of you out there, I also swore an oath to defend the nation, the constitution against ALL enemies… Read more »

    Do you know how to tell when Democrats are spewing crap out of their mouths. That would be any time that their mouths are open. Works every time.
