Published

on

On Monday, May 6, 2019, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker introduced a radical gun control plan in his 2020 presidential platform.

According to USA Today, this plan calls for the creation of a national licensing program for gun owners.Booker’s plan is the most aggressive of any of the 2020 Democratic candidates.

This plan demands that prospective gun owners take a mandatory gun safety course and go through a lengthy interview to acquire a 5-year gun license.

Booker stated, “My plan to address gun violence is simple — we will make it harder for people who should not have a gun to get one.”

The New Jersey Senator added:

I am sick and tired of hearing thoughts and prayers for the communities that have been shattered by gun violence.

On top of that, Booker’s proposal advocates for “banning assault-weapons, bump-stocks, and high-capacity magazines.” In the same vein, Booker’s gun control plan limits the number of guns that can be purchased each month.

The New Jersey Senator also vows to investigate the NRA’s tax exempt status, which has been a controversial matter that BLP has reported on. This is part of Booker’s plan to “bring the fight to the NRA.” The New York Attorney General is currently investigating whether the NRA merits tax exempt status.

This proposal is no surprise considering that New Jersey is one of the most anti-gun states in the Union. Guns & Ammo Magazine ranks it in 50th place.

Since the New Zealand shooting, Democrats from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Eric Swalwell have endorsed expanding gun control.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
