The May 7, 2019 National Review Online’s Editorial, features a look at Senator and Democrat Presidential contender Cory Booker’s latest attack on liberty.
Having thus far failed to break through in the Democratic primary, Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey is seeking to gain an edge in the contest by advancing the most extreme package of gun-control proposals to be touted by any presidential aspirant in two decades.
In addition to the usual laundry list — “universal” background checks, a ban on so-called “assault weapons,” the prohibition of standard-capacity magazines — Booker hopes to establish not only a federal registry of guns, but a federal registry of gun owners, too.
So, Booker wants to put my name on a list. Right.
Under the terms of Booker’s plan, Americans wishing to exercise their Second Amendment rights would have to apply to Washington for permission — not just once, but every five years — and to inform the executive branch of each weapon they own in their home.
I have to apply to the Federal government every 5 years in order to exercise my Enumerated Constitutional Right?
Is Senator Booker illiterate? Can he not understand the clear language…”shall not be infringed?” Maybe he, like many gun grabbers, just doesn’t care. As I mentioned in a previous article, unlawful gun grabbing in America has resulted in unintended consequences for the grabbers. An unlawful and ultimately botched attempt to confiscate Colonial weapons, resulted in “the shot heard ‘round the World,” as the battle at Lexington Commons kicked off the American Revolution.
Senator Booker is obviously nuttier than a fruitcake. Here’s my question to “reasonable” Democrats: Just how many young law enforcement men and women are you willing to see hurt, attempting to enforce a blatantly unconstitutional law?
On a cool Massachusetts morning, April 1775….
