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.

Videos: Biden Lies His Way Through Debate; Trump Asks For “Explanation To The American People”

“We can’t lock ourselves up in a basement like Joe does”

Joe Biden emerged from his basement Thursday to lie his way through the final debate with President Trump, and boy were there some zingers.

Watch the full debate here:

On Coronavirus, Biden accused Trump of having “no comprehensive plan,” while declaring that he would mandate masks. Trump hit back, noting that Biden will lockdown the country without considering the economic impact.

“We can’t lock ourselves up in a basement like Joe does. He has the ability to lock himself up. I don’t know; he’s obviously made a lot of money someplace,” Trump said.

Trump noted that Biden called his early decision to close down air travel from China ‘Xenophobic’, and Biden denied it, which was a lie:

When the debate turned to national security, Trump asked the question everyone has been waiting to hear the answer to.

“You were getting a lot of money from Russia. They were paying you a lot of money. And what came out today – all of the emails, the horrible emails of all the money you were raking in, you and your family. And I think you owe an explanation to the American people,” The President said.

Biden responded, “I have not taken a single penny from any country whatsoever,” another clear lie, then attempted to pivot the topic back by claiming Trump has a “secret bank account in China.”

He also blamed ‘Russians’ for the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop.

Trump hit back, declaring “I don’t make money from China, you do. I don’t make money from Ukraine, you do. I don’t make money from Russia, you do.”

When North Korea briefly came up in the conversation, Biden declared, in another moment of senility, that “We had a good relationship with Hitler before he invaded Europe.”

On the topic of healthcare, Biden straight up lied again claiming that no one lost their insurance under Obamacare:

Trump noted that Biden “wants socialized medicine.”

On the subject of border security, Biden claimed that Trump separated families at the border, when in reality it was a policy already in place under the Obama/Biden administration which Trump put a stop to.

“Who built the cages Joe?” Trump asked Biden.

Biden even threw Obama under the bus on immigration, stating that he will be “president” and not “vice president” this time around:

Biden was soon wondering how much longer he’d have to lie for:

When the debate turned to the topic of race, Biden called Trump a racist, in a convoluted and bizarre way, by suggesting that Abe Lincoln was a racist:

On climate change, Biden claimed that he has never opposed fracking, despite the fact that just a few weeks ago he said he did:

Biden also admitted that he would close down the oil industry:

How do you know Trump won the debate? Because leftists say these kind of things:

President Trump tore into Barack Obama Wednesday as the previous incumbent of the White House campaigned in place of Joe Biden, who is nowhere to be seen since his son’s laptop scandal exploded last week.

Obama appeared in Philadelphia, labelling Trump as ‘crazy,’ and accusing the President of lying every day, and tweeting conspiracy theories “about secret cabals running the world, or navy seals didn’t actually kill Bin Laden”.

Obama also attacked Trump on the coronavirus response, stating “We literally left this White House a pandemic playbook,” adding “They probably used it to, I don’t know, prop up a wobbly table somewhere.”

Watch:

Trump hit back at Obama during a rally in North Carolina, telling the huge crowd “You know Obama’s now campaigning. Oh, here we go.”

Referring to him as ‘Barack Hussein Obama,’ Trump said his predecessor had “refused to support Biden,” up til now.

“There was nobody that campaigned harder for Crooked Hillary Clinton than Obama,” Trump added, noting “He was all over the place.”

“The only one more unhappy than Crooked Hillary that night was Barack Hussein Obama,” Trump boomed.

Watch:

Trump also revisited a past interaction with Obama, when the media erroneously claimed that the crowd for Trump’s inauguration was smaller than for Obama’s.

Trump noted that when photos of the two events were compared by the media “they show empty space and they show Barack Hussein Obama’s.”

“They took the pictures about five or six hours,” after the event, Trump said, noting that “When I was speaking it was packed.”

Extremist Democrats Take Part In Event Hosted By Blogger Who Declared ‘America Deserved 9/11’

These people will be in charge if Biden gets elected

Extreme leftist Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) were criticised for taking part in an event this week that was organised by a leftist blogger who just last year proclaimed that “America deserved 9/11.”

The Washington Free Beacon notes that AOC and Omar were involved in the live streaming event hosted by Hasan Piker that claimed to be aimed at encouraging viewers to make plans to get out and vote early.

While playing videos games, Ocasio-Cortez described the event as having an “amazing lineup” and thanked Piker, for having “wrangled” the event together without much time.

Piker appeared on a Young Turks broadcast in 2019 where he sickeningly attacked Texas GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw, making fun of that fact that he lost an eye while on active duty in Iraq.

“Didn’t he go to war and like literally lose his eye because some mujahideen—a brave f—ing soldier—f—ed his eye hole with their d—,”  Piker said at the time.

During the same broadcast Piker declared that “America deserved 9/11, dude. F— it, I’m saying it,” after which he tried to weasel out of the statement, saying he meant America, not the American people, deserved 9/11.

The fact that Democratic representatives are involving themselves with a person like this says everything voters need to know.

Ilhan Omar has previously courted controversy where 9/11 is concerned, by describing the attack as “some people” who “did something” at an event for American and Islamic relations in 2019.

Ocasio-Cortez later defended Omar’s comments.

President Trump has warned multiple times that this extremist arm of the Democratic party will easily be able to co-opt Joe Biden if he manages to win the election, and forward a radical leftist agenda.
