Presidential candidate Cory Booker proposes national gun license for all gun owners

How is Spartacus going to ensure that criminals comply with this fantasy?

From Yahoo: Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker is proposing that all gun owners be licensed by the federal government, a process that would include an interview and safety training.

National licensing is one of more than a dozen specific proposals in a sweeping gun control agenda the U.S. senator from New Jersey released on Monday. It’s his second policy rollout in three weeks as he tries to break through the crowded Democratic primary field .

While current gun owners and first-time buyers would be subject to the federal license requirement, a transition period would allow current owners to come into compliance, the Booker campaign said.

No such national gun license program currently exists. Thirteen states and the District of Columbia have enacted some form of licensing or permit rules before people can buy guns, according to the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.

“I am sick and tired of hearing thoughts and prayers for the communities that have been shattered by gun violence — it is time for bold action,” Booker said in a statement.

Last month during a high-profile speech in his hometown of Newark, Booker vowed to “bring a fight” to the National Rifle Association, which generally opposes gun restrictions.

Booker, a former mayor of Newark, New Jersey’s largest city, said gun violence is an issue close to him, with several people being shot in his neighborhood recently.”We must step up and deal with something that is crushing communities, destroying lives and really just tearing apart families,” Booker said in an interview on CBS’ “CBS This Morning.”

Booker’s gun control agenda includes universal background checks for gun buyers; the reinstitution of a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity firearm magazines; and the modernization of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The plan would face a steep climb to winning approval from a Democratic House and would face even stiffer resistance in a Republican-controlled Senate, where less-sweeping gun control measures have failed in recent years.

President Donald Trump has said the constitutional right to bear arms is “under assault.” Trump, a Republican, spoke at the NRA’s annual convention last month, vowing to fight for gun rights and imploring NRA members to rally behind his reelection bid.

Booker, who launched his presidential campaign in February, has struggled to rise from the low single digits in polls of the 21-candidate Democratic primary field, though he recently secured the 65,000 donors necessary to meet both qualifications for participation in next month’s first debate .

Why is this annoying insect even in the “news”? Hey Spartacus, I’d like to propose that all presidential candidates (hahaha) pass a background check and a psychiatric exam. How bout dat? Now go back to your hood in Newark and tell the fellas hanging out with their 40’s and 9’s that they have to take a safety course and get licensed. Better wear your flak jacket

Cory Booker represents a state that qualifies as a sh*thole. He couldn’t organize a trip to the bathroom. There was a huge ATF bust in Holmby Hills area of CA yesterday. Hundreds of guns, mainly rifles, were found in a house with some very bizarre history, including connections to the Getty family. The news report said they suspect that firearms were being sold and manufactured there. Could someone have been planning an uprising of some kind? There was a news story a while back that illegal aliens had been arrested in southern California, wearing military uniforms and driving military-like vehicles.… Read more »

Very strange story in that link. Really don’t know what to make of it.

Well, this could be very “timely”, considering both firearms and “contempt” charges: https://dailycaller.com/2019/05/08/fast-and-furious-settlement-dc-court/ Rather “upper crust” location for smugglers I would think. Of course The Odor has tentacles all over their empire. Besides this there were MANY firearms manufactures in California for many years. One of my nieces worked for one not far from this location. The equipment necessary to manufacture is common and easily acquired. I suspect that this cache has more to do with Obongo/Holder than anything else. Maybe they’re planning to arm the snowflakes. Things are definitely getting tense. I think they’re going for it. My prediction… Read more »

Maybe that was the whole point of F&F, to arm the snowflakes and MS-13 and other gangs, an organized psychopathic leftist militia. Like Al-Nusra There are somewhere close to 2 million armed gang members in the country now, maybe more. The extent of F&F is probably much greater than what was acknowledged. As you alluded to elsewhere, chaos is their MO, managed chaos. Pedo Joe/Hilary makes as much sense as anything else these days. Who else do they have? If Joe doesn’t want to exit stage left I think his brain tumor will grow back

During Obongo’s reign they managed to shut down the ammunition supply. Meanwhile, they were caught red-handed smuggling guns out of the country illegally. Holder was held in contempt and never did a moment’s time for this. Everyone, including me, was speculating on what this was all about. Basically, they just gaffed the whole thing off. If you think of Holder being the SHES monkey in Connecticut who was hyping his disarmament scam to the governor and on various TV programs, how do you explain this? Just guessing, since I have nothing else, they don’t need to secretly arm anybody. They… Read more »

Yeah, you can see this crap in most Mexican restaurants here. Tell you what, let them make Mexico work where it is first. Then we can talk.

No worries mate.

All of that IS interesting. I don’t pretend to know what to make of it. I was trying to understand this alleged “tip” that someone was “manufacturing” guns there. Looking at the guns they are commercial items, many of them very old. Obviously they are not recently “manufactured”. As to the number, I know people who have that many guns. So what? Unless California now has new laws that I’m unaware of, there is not “limit” to how many guns someone can own. I’m also amazed that they would raid a mansion. After all, that’s who the cops work for.… Read more »

Died from “anal rape”? Weren’t the the same family who lost a son to cannibals in the Amazon? Living proof that money doesn’t buy you a brain.

Yeah the whole thing is bizarre to me, and I have absolutely no idea what to make of it either. I just thought that it had to be worth noting, what are the odds that there is a connection here to one of the wealthiest families on Earth, and so much mystery behind everything.

Just another shrieking swisher trying to get attention. It’s hard to stand out in a field of insane misfits. He’s look right at home with Fat Jerry (Jabba?) the Hutt and Nasty Nancy.

They should take their whole “candidate” list and post it on the wall of the Post Office.

A “license” is permission from the state to do something which would be illegal otherwise. You don’t need permission from the state to exercise a natural right.

Spartacus. I wonder who ties his shoes.

Spartacus Homo Booker thinks its ok that the FBI,CIA,NSA illegally spied on the Trump campaign (and a coup), but was outraged that the NYPD was spying on Judeo-Muslim Mosques in Newark NJ!

Yep, those of us who grew up in America are shocked by the double standards. Those who were conditioned by the Frankfurt School don’t see any problem with different standards for different people, depending.

We have two completely different standards now. One is the American one that most of us grew up with. The other is the New World Odor one that guys like this are marching to. Because the younger ones are so conditioned to accept it they don’t even notice it’s happening.

And why would I need State permission to do something that God gave me the right to do and the Constitution guaranteed compliance with? How can these sworn officials do anything in defiance of The Constitution?

There is no codicil on “…shall not be infringed”. These creatures are vermin.
