Michael Bloomberg rolls out gun control plan
« on: December 09, 2019, 03:29:09 PM »
Crusty old white democrat billionaire Bloomberg who decided that, after skipping all of the debates and planning to skip the first four primaries, he's going to run for president and his "news" company isn't going to investigate any democrat candidates but will investigate and attack republican candidates (Trump) announces his plan to bring New York Style Gun Control to the federal level.


Michael Bloomberg rolls out gun control plan, blames politicians for looking 'the other way'

Speaking from Aurora, Colorado, the New York billionaire said the nation’s gun violence epidemic hasn’t been solved because politicians have viewed it as a problem plaguing Hispanic and African American communities, thus not acting to solve the “nationwide madness.”

Mr. Bloomberg has mapped out an unconventional path to the Democratic nomination.

He plans to skip the first four primary states in favor of focusing on the more delegate-rich states, including Colorado, which will be among more than a dozen states that will hold their nomination contests on Super Tuesday in early March. The Super Tuesday primaries account for 40% of the Democratic Party’s delegates.

That plan served as a backdrop for Mr. Bloomberg’s policy rollout Thursday, as Mr. Bloomberg was surrounded by gun control advocacy groups he helped to launch since leaving office.

Mr. Bloomberg said. “As president, I will attack gun violence from every angle.”

After visiting a memorial honoring the 12 victims who died at the 2012 mass shooting inside a movie theater in Aurora, Mr. Bloomberg blasted President Trump for not taking up House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s bill requiring background checks for gun purchases.

“Donald Trump seems to accept this violence and pain,” Mr. Bloomberg said.

The businessman released a five-part plan to tackle the issue, starting with creating a more effective background check system.

He wants “point of sale” background checks for all firearm purchases, requiring anyone buying a gun to also hold a permit.

The former mayor also wants to “keep guns out of the wrong hands,” touting red flag laws and closing loopholes that allow domestic abusers to possess firearms.

As president, Mr. Bloomberg would reinstate a federal ban on assault weapons and prohibit high capacity magazines. A 10-year ban on assault weapons expired in 2004 after being enacted by President Clinton. Some studies have suggested the ban had little effect on curtailing homicide rates.

Mr. Bloomberg also said gun violence in hard-hit communities would be a priority of his, suggesting more than $100 million should be dedicated annually to local programs to curtail the problem.

His plan also aims to hold gun makers accountable by doing away with laws that shield them from civil liability.

Other points included in his plan include raising the minimum age to buy a gun to 21, prohibiting 3D printing of weapons, and banning guns from school campuses.
