Bernie Sanders Wants to Ban “Assault Weapons”, AKA Semi-Automatic Firearms

Published

Bernie Sanders wants to ban so-called “assault weapons.”

After the El Paso and Dayton shootings, almost every major establishment politician in D.C. was calling for some form of gun control.

The progressive stalwart Sanders was no exception to this trend.

He recently tweeted, “There are more than 5 million assault weapons out on the streets of America, which is more than the U.S. military has.”

For the Vermont Senator, the fact that America has so many “assault weapons” on the streets is “insane.”

He then declared that “We must ban the sale, distribution and transfer of assault weapons in the United States.”

In 1994, the federal government passed an Assault Weapons ban, which Sanders voted for.

Despite the hype behind this ban, it had very little effect on gun violence.

During its time as federal law, the Department of Justice’s National Institute of Justice discovered that the assault weapons ban had “no discernible reduction in the lethality and injuriousness of gun violence.”

Nevertheless, Sanders is towing the mainstream Democratic Party line on guns.

His campaign represents part of the leftward lurch the modern-day Democratic Party has taken in recent years.

None of the 2020 presidential hopefuls on the Democratic side of the aisle are good options for gun owners.

Airbnb CEO Says Wuhan Virus Will Fundamentally Transform Domestic Travel

Post-pandemic America will not look the same.

Published

on

Brian Chesky, the CEO of Airbnb, said to Reuters on January 14, 2021 that domestic travel patterns will not revert to pre-Wuhan virus pandemic standards.

In a Zoom call with Jonathan Weber, the global technology editor for Reuters, Chesky said that business travel will move towards leisure travel due to the fact that software like Zoom facilitates teleconferencing at unprecedented rates. 

Furthermore, Chesky speculates that people won’t be visiting America’s largest cities as much as before, nor will they stay at crowded hotels. Instead, he believes that “many people will travel by car – some will travel by plane – and they’re going to travel to thousands of smaller communities. And many of these communities are going to be smaller cities and or even rural areas.” 

Additionally, the Airbnb CEO notes that “farm stays are huge right now” and that national parks travel will become a major trend among travelers in the upcoming months. The latter will grow, in Chesky’s view, because most Americans have not visited such parks.

According to an Airbnb survey, 54% of Americans have plans of traveling in 2021 or they’re in the process of planning out their trips for the summer. Chesky asserted that travelers are “yearning for what was taken away from them.” He added, “they’re not yearning to see Times Square. What they are yearning to do is to see their friends and their families they have not seen in a long time.”

Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge raised an interesting point about this change in Americans’ travel patterns:

If Chesky is right about the significant travel shift, the hotel industry could be slated for a massive wave of bankruptcies and or consolidation to a degree never before seen.  

Regardless, Americans are getting tired of the Wuhan virus lockdowns. Millions of Americans have had their freedoms infringed upon thanks to politicians who want to exploit a generalized crisis for their own gain. 

If Republicans were smart, they would be unapologetically campaigning for their states to be reopened. Americans want to go back to their normal lives and engage in activities such as travel, which the political class has deprived them of.
