Senator Cory Booker rolled out a gun control plan this morning that includes a gun licensing program and a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. According to The New York Times, “aspects of Mr. Booker’s 14-part plan are among the most progressive gun-control measures suggested by a candidate seeking the Democratic nomination for president.”
We need an aggressive approach to end the epidemic of gun violence in our country. My new plan would:
✅Keep guns out of the wrong hands
✅Hold gun manufacturers accountable
✅Bring the fight to the NRAhttps://t.co/6dTQ3SGJcM

Also in his plan, bringing the fight to the NRA.
We won’t wait for more thoughts and prayers for communities that have been shattered by gun violence — from Pittsburgh to Parkland to Charleston to communities where kids fear the fireworks of Fourth of July because to them they sound like gunshots.
We will pass universal background checks. We will ban assault weapons and close the loopholes that allow people who should never have a gun to get one. We will bring a fight to the NRA like they have never ever seen before. And we will win.
He also wants licenses for all guns, closing gun show loopholes, handgun microstamping, a ban on assault weapons, high-capacity magazines, and bump stocks, limits on the number of guns people can buy in a month and requiring firearm owners to report lost or stolen firearms.
Booker appeared on CNN today to talk about his new plan, but wouldn’t answer if he’d jail Americans who refuse to surrender firearms they lawfully purchased during a confiscation scenario.

The NRA hasn’t responded, but Dana Loesch tweeted:
Because these laws worked so well in Aurora IL, San Bernardino, Maryland. Law-abiding gun owners will not pay the penalty for those who refuse to honor or enforce existing laws. https://t.co/RDKfflG0KS
