2020 Presidential candidate Senator Cory Booker compares his gun control plan to the Civil Rights Movement.
Booker told ABC News on “This Week” that “People thought [civil rights legislation] was impossible, but they changed the terms of the debate by expanding the moral imagination of this country.”
BLP reported on Booker’s newly unveiled plan, which consists of universal background checks, mandatory gun licensing, and magazine bans.
The New Jersey Senator is not satisfied with how slow Congress is moving and declared that he will not stand idly as gun violence becomes “normalized.”
He later said, “In my short time on this planet, 50 years, we’ve had more people killed by gun violence than every single war combined from the Revolutionary War through World War I, World War II, Vietnam.”
In his view, America has done nothing to address gun violence.
And what have we done? Massacre in the synagogue. We do nothing. Massacre here in South Carolina in a church. We do nothing. Massacre in my mom’s city of Las Vegas. We do nothing.
According to The Daily Caller, Booker is even considering measures to use the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the NRA and its tax-exempt status. This is part of Booker’s plan to bring “the fight to the NRA like never before.”
New Jersey is one of the most anti-gun states in the country and has been a leader in the gun control movement during the past few decades.
So far, Booker and Congressman Eric Swalwell have been the most vociferous advocates for gun control among the 2020 presidential candidates.

U.S. Intelligence Reports that China Hid the Extent of the Wuhan Virus Outbreak
According to a Bloomberg report, China has not been forthcoming about the extent of the Wuhan Virus in its country.
It has apparently, under-reported “both total cases and deaths it’s suffered from the disease, the U.S. intelligence community concluded in a classified report to the White House, according to three U.S. officials.”
The officials requested to stay anonymous because the report is confidential and declined to give further details about its contents. The main takeaway though is “that China’s public reporting on cases and deaths is intentionally incomplete. Two of the officials said the report concludes that China’s numbers are fake.”
The White House received this report last week, according to one of the aforementioned officials.
The pandemic originated in China’s Hubei province in late 2019, but the country has officially reported only about 82,000 cases and 3,300 deaths, according to data collected by Johns Hopkins University. America, on the other hand, has 189,000 cases and more than 4,000 deaths which is allegedly the largest publicly and reported outbreak in the world.
“The reality is that we could have been better off if China had been more forthcoming,” Vice President Mike Pence said on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 on CNN. “What appears evident now is that long before the world learned in December that China was dealing with this, and maybe as much as a month earlier than that, that the outbreak was real in China.”
China imposed one of the strictest lockdowns of all nations afflicted by this pandemic. However, the Chinese government has not been transparent about its recording strategies and is constantly changing its methods for recording cases.
Republicans have been skeptical of the numbers coming out of Beijing.
“The claim that the United States has more coronavirus deaths than China is false,” declared Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse. “Without commenting on any classified information, this much is painfully obvious: The Chinese Communist Party has lied, is lying, and will continue to lie about coronavirus to protect the regime.”
U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has called on China to be transparent about their outbreaks.
“This data set matters,” he said during a news conference in Washington on March 31, 2020. The development of medical treatments and public-health measures to combat the virus “so that we can save lives depends on the ability to have confidence and information about what has actually transpired,” he asserted.
The Wuhan Virus pandemic illustrates the pitfalls of globalism and global integration at all costs.
When authoritarian regimes like China are treated like equals on the international stage in terms of trade and migration, Western countries could be susceptible to demographic displacement, national security breaches, viral outbreaks, and corporate espionage.
This sage may be the wake-up call the West needs in trying to socially distance itself from China.
