NEWARK, NJ-New Jersey Senator Cory “Spartacus” Booker has announced his plan to create a national firearms identification system similar to the Republican’s call for a national voter ID registration system.
“My plan to address gun violence is simple – we will make it harder for people who should not have a gun to get one,” Booker said.
When President Donald Trump called for national voter registration and voter ID system, Spartacus flipped out, along with the rest of the Democrats in Washington, D.C.
“Voter ID laws targeted people of color,” Booker rebuked when a national voter registration system was proposed.
So why would a national voter identification process target people of color, but a national firearms system not? Minorities across America are more at risk than Caucasians nationwide. In Booker’s own crime-ridden home town, gang violence surged, but people of color, living in those communities are already at a disadvantage when it comes to legally purchasing a firearm to protect their homes and families.
Many gun advocates across New Jersey have since lashed out against Booker’s federal firearm plan as New Jersey Democrats’ latest gun grab.
Hirsh Singh, Booker’s Republican challenger for U.S. Senate in 2020 also disagrees with Booker’s plan to federalize firearms ownership.
“CoryBooker says the next President must be personally motivated to end gun violence, but when Newark endured 10 murders in 10 days, he campaigned for cash in Hollywood,” Singh said, criticizing Booker’s lack of ability to curb gun violence even in his home town where he served as mayor prior to becoming a U.S. Senator. “US Senator Cory Booker doesn’t understand State Sovereignty, 10th amendment rights, or the 2nd amendment rights that he swore to uphold.”
Hirsh said Booker’s hostility towards legal gun owners not only highlights the Democrat party’s national intent to take away guns from American citizens but is a direct assault on the Second Amendment.
“Remember, the 2nd Amendment is not like a drivers license,” Singh added. “It is a fundamental right protected by the US Constitution directly by our founders. We may have a screwed up set of regulations in NJ right now, but we will one day, in the not too distant future, get our day in the Supreme Court. The supporters of the 2nd Amendment will win that day, because the constitution clearly says, “Shall not be infringed!” and I am dedicated to helping make that happen.”
After Booker announced his plans, his supporters proposed everything from federal taxes on gun and ammunition sales to gun owners having to lock their guns up at all time with a double locking system that requires gun owners to notify police every time the system is unlocked or whenever the guns are transported to a range, hunting, etc.
In the end, according to Spartacus logic, if a national voter ID system would hinder the ability for minorities to vote, wouldn’t a similar firearms ID system likewise hinder those same minorities from exercising their Second Amendment right to bear arms?
