The most straightforward explanation of why a black man raised in New Jersey is ignorant of the fundamental truth that “crazies, criminals, and terrorists do not respect nor obey the law” is to realize he is not authentically black. He is an elitist who attended Stanford (B.A. Political Science, M.A. Sociology), studied abroad at Oxford University (Queen’s College) on a Rhodes Scholarship (U.S. History), and finished his formal education at Yale Law School with a Juris Doctor degree. There is no doubt that he is a corrupt progressive socialist democrat willing to do or say anything to advance his self-interests and the socialist agenda.
How else can such a smart and accomplished individual conclude that you can reduce crime and make the streets safer by disarming law-abiding citizens and depriving them of their inalienable right to self-defense? Creating, in essence, larger victim pools that are unable to access law enforcement intervention when and where needed?
How can such a smart and accomplished man mischaracterize existing gun violence in America as an “epidemic” when an epidemic is defined as a “widespread occurrence of an infectious disease in a community at a particular time.” Gun violence cannot be contracted as one would an airborne disease. Gun violence is an individual choice to intimidate or harm another individual and the individual, not the greater community, should be held responsible for their own actions.
After eliminating the most significant component of gun-related death or injury from suicide and accidental discharge, perhaps one might look at the progressive’s own corrupt concept of disparate impact. Making a prima facie case for racism if the percentage actions of a minority do not comport with that minorities percentage representation in the general population. And, it is up to the person or organization so charged to prove their innocence, rather than the state proving their guilt. Why not use this crackpot theory of disparate impact, which has been applied to housing, employment, and finance, and simply disarm minorities who commit a disproportionate number of gun-related offenses? Why not sanction the progressive socialist democrats who plea bargain away the serious gun-related charges or reduce felonies to misdemeanors to guarantee a conviction on paper?
It makes absolutely no sense to remove the means of protection from abused women and individuals with families in high-crime areas. But then again, logic does not apply too much of the black community in Democrat-governed inner cities (polite speak for ghettos) – where academic achievement is discouraged by non-achieving peers and the very law enforcement that was meant to protect community lives and property is disparaged, demeaned, denigrated, and attracted.
A racist viewpoint? A customary charge from a cadre of progressives who view everything through the prism of race while claiming “people of color,” by definition cannot be racists. Yeah Right! Like the Black Lives Matter crowd who insist that only Back Lives Matter and attack anyone for saying All Lives Matter.
So what is Cory Booker’s genius plan …
Cory Booker spells out his cure for 'epidemic of gun violence' with licenses, purchase limits
Sen. Cory A. Booker of New Jersey proposed Monday that all gun owners be licensed by the federal government, grabbing attention for his struggling campaign by delving into the gun control debate that has flummoxed Democratic presidential hopefuls for decades.
Firearm licenses topped a long list of measures that Mr. Booker prescribed for what he called the “epidemic of gun violence.”
He also wants to limit Americans to one gun purchase per month, crack down on firearm manufacturers, ban military-style semi-automatic rifles and beef up the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to go after gun dealers.
He pledged that on his first day as president he would bypass Congress and take executive action to restrict gun sales and crack down on unscrupulous dealers and gun manufacturers.
“I’m coming at this full bore. Enough of this seeming to resign ourselves to this level of carnage in America,” Mr. Booker told CBS News.
Firearm licenses, which Mr. Booker likened to driver’s licenses, would require fingerprinting, background checks and the completion of a government-sanctioned gun safety course.
“My plan to address gun violence is simple: We will make it harder for people who should not have a gun to get one,” Mr. Booker said.
His plan also would:
⦁ Increase government regulation and oversight to gun manufacturers, including allow the Consumer Product Safety Commission to enforce safety standards and issue recall orders for faulty firearms.
⦁ End legal immunity that prevents victims of gun violence from suing sellers and manufacturers of firearms.
⦁ Require handgun microstamping, a technology that enables law enforcement to identify the source of ammunition used in crimes by making a shell casing traceable to the specific gun that fired the round.
⦁ Expand laws that prevent people accused of domestic violence to include dating partners.
⦁ Overhaul the ATF with increased funding, repeal of restriction on its authority to investigate crimes and crack down on gun dealers.
Following up on a vow to “bring a fight” to the NRA, Mr. Booker said he would call on the IRS to look into revoking its tax-exempt status.
Bottom line …
Cory Booker is a progressive socialist democrat fool – a smart one, but one who is self-serving and thoroughly corrupt. That no 2020 Democrat denounced this demagoguery and lack of respect for the Constitution should inform every voter when they enter the ballot box.
We are so screwed.
