WATCH: Cory Booker likes the spotlight according to Jesse Watters
Cory Booker is running for president despite having no chance at actually winning the nomination but he likely understands that and is just doing it to get attention.
He certainly isn’t putting forward any policies that the majority of Americans are interested in. He’s just reciting liberal talking points and pandering to the parts of the country that hate Trump.
His latest brilliant idea is a national gun registry.
From Washington Examiner:
Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker on Monday unveiled a new gun control plan that calls for federal licenses for gun owners and an investigation into the National Rifle Association’s nonprofit status.
The New Jersey senator’s campaign called Booker’s plan the “most sweeping gun violence prevention plan ever put forth by a presidential candidate.”
“As president, we will make commonsense changes to our gun laws such as requiring a license to purchase a gun that includes universal background checks, banning assault weapons, and closing the loopholes that allow domestic abusers and people on terrorist watch lists to get their hands on a gun,” Booker said in a statement. “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.”
Obviously, that idea isn’t going anywhere but it’s interesting to see how completely out of touch Democrats are when it comes to guns.
