Bloomberg Unveils Extreme Gun Control Plan

Every gun control proposal that has failed in the past is included

Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg has announced a radical anti-Second Amendment program, calling for outright bans and a requirement for every gun buyer to obtain a permit.

Appearing in Aurora, Colorado Thursday, the location of the 2012 movie theatre shooting, Bloomberg vowed to put an end to a “nationwide madness” where firearms are concerned.

“I’m just getting started,” Bloomberg declared, adding that “As president, I will work to end the gun violence epidemic once and for all.”

“I promise you I will never back down from this fight,” he said. “That’s the kind of president this country needs and you deserve.”

Bloomberg went on to outline a gun control plan that includes every proposal that has ever been attempted, and has failed.

These include proposals to:

— Reinstate the federal ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.

— Require every gun buyer to obtain a permit before making a purchase.

— Require point-of-sale background checks on all gun purchases while closing the gun show loophole.

— Institute a new age limit of 21 for those wishing to buy handguns, semi-automatic rifles and shotguns.

— Require a mandatory 48-hour waiting period for all gun purchases.

— Institute a federal “red flag” law to deny permits to “troubled people who pose a danger to themselves or others.”

— Institute a temporary ban on gun possession for those convicted of assault or other violent misdemeanors.

— Ban all guns in K-12 schools, colleges, and universities, except for law enforcement.

— Reverse the law that gives gun makers and gun dealers immunity from lawsuits.

— Create the position of White House gun coordinator “to mobilize the public to fight gun violence and launch an inter-agency hub to fight gun violence.”

“My agenda is not some johnny-come-lately list of borrowed ideas,“ Bloomberg claimed, adding “This is part of my life‘s work, and I‘m just telling you I will get this done whether I get elected or not.“

Addressing the proposal for permit requirement, Bloomberg attempted to conflate the idea with voting rights.

“Now I know critics will say that Americans shouldn’t need a permit to exercise their constitutional rights. But voting is a constitutional right, and we require people to register to protect the rights of all citizens, and this exactly the same idea,” he argued, “because a criminal with a gun can destroy our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

Critics argue that Bloomberg is redefining the notion of inalienable rights and misconstruing the US Constitution to frame his agenda.

Second Amendment activists also argue that the ‘red flag’ laws Bloomberg is proposing are unconstitutional and would allow the government to confiscate an American’s firearms without due process.

Bloomberg, who is surrounded by armed security 24/7, has previously made many ignorant comments regarding firearm ownership.

Bloomberg will also have a tall task on his hands if by some fluke he is elected. Newly released figures from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives shows that there are now a whopping 422.9 million guns in the hands of Americans. The number equates to 1.2 guns for every person in the country.

The figures also show that in 2018, 8.1 billion rounds of ammunition were produced by the gun industry.

The figures also reveal that the most popular firearm in the country is the much maligned sporting rifle, often mis-identified as an “assault rifle”, the AR-15 being one of the more popular models.

The findings highlight that there are now 17.7 million of them in private hands, a record high, and more than half (54%) of all rifles produced in 2017 were modern sporting rifles.

The ATF figures also reveal that firearms-ammunition manufacturing accounted for nearly 12,000 jobs in the US, creating over $4.1 billion in goods shipped in 2017.

With a near record high of gun sales on Black Friday last week, Americans are sending a clear message in exercising their Second Amendment rights.

Four Months Later: Pelosi Condemns Rioting

“It’s what happens when you realise your internal poll numbers are through the floor”

Almost four months after the worst rioting and looting in history took hold in practically every major city in the US, the majority of which are run by Democrats, Nancy Pelosi finally said something about it.

“We support peaceful demonstrations. We participate in them. They are part of the essence of our democracy. That does not include looting, starting fires, or rioting,” Pelosi said Thursday, adding “They should be prosecuted. That is lawlessness.”

Note, that Pelosi did not mention BLM or Antifa, or name any group responsible for the destruction.

Many expressed the same theory about why Pelosi suddenly decided to address the matter:

Indeed, a series of new polls reveals that the majority of Americans believe there is a war being waged against police officers, and that support for the ‘black lives matter’ movement has dropped even further, with many more now seeing little distinction between the movement’s ‘protests’ and violent riots.

Senator Kennedy: ‘There Are Times When I think Pelosi Has Eaten Tide Pods’

Says Speaker is “bone deep down to the marrow foolish”

GOP Senator John Kennedy used a startling cultural reference to portray his belief that believes Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is crazy, saying that he often thinks she has ‘is one of those people who tried Tide Pods’ laundry detergent.

Appearing with Sean Hannity, Kennedy was addressing Pelosi’s obsession with the $3.4 trillion coronavirus bill.

“Sean, with respect, there are times, particularly recently, when I think Speaker Pelosi is one of those people who tried Tide pods,” Kennedy hilariously stated.

“I want you to think about what she proposed today, this is what the speaker is threatening to do,” he continued, adding “She is threatening to keep the House Democrats in session and prevent them from going home and running for reelection unless the Senate Republicans agree to the speaker’s $3.4 trillion coronavirus bill.”

“On the one hand we can vote for Pelosi’s $3.4 trillion bill or we can agree to allow her to put the House Democratic majority into jeopardy. That’s just bone deep down to the marrow foolish,” Kennedy urged.

Kennedy further emphasised that Nothing is going to get done while the Democrats refuse to back down over something that is never going to come to fruition.

“Senator Schumer and Speaker Pelosi aren’t going to agree to anything until we agree to spend a trillion dollars bailing out New York and California and that’s not going to happen in your or my natural life,” Kennedy added.

Kennedy’s assessment of Pelosi’s sanity comes on the heels of Mad Money Host Jim Cramer calling Pelosi “crazy Nanncy” right to her face, before instantly apologising:

Report: Biden Lawyers Up In Preparation For “Extended Legal Battle” Election

The New York Times is reporting that Joe Biden has hired hundreds of lawyers, including two former solicitor generals, and has created an entire legal division to fight an extended battle after the election.

The report notes that Bob Bauer, a former White House Counsel under Obama will help oversee the operation, with Donald Verrilli Jr. and Walter Dellinger, the two former solicitors general, heading up Biden’s “special litigation” unit:

The report also notes that Biden has employed hundreds of independent law firms, with former Attorney General Eric Holder serving as a liaison between them and the campaign.

The stated aims of the unit are to “combat voter suppression,” “guard against foreign interference,” as well as ensuring “voters cast their ballots correctly.”

“There are some unique challenges this year,” Bauer told the the Times, adding that “We’re not going to get caught up in alarmist rhetoric they [the Trump campaign] are using to scare voters.”

“The constant return to the issue of fraud is itself a voter suppression tool,” he added.

The move plays into the Democratic narrative that Biden will win the election over a long drawn out period, and that President Trump will try to claim a quick victory and even refuse to leave the White House.

The narrative has been pushed hard by the likes of the Clintons, who have repeatedly urged Biden not to concede defeat under any circumstances.

In reality, new polls indicate that Trump has a huge lead:

This also jives with the paltry numbers seen attending Biden rallies:

All indications are that Trump will win on election day, yet the Democrats will refuse to accept the result:
