Booker: Stop "fearmongering" over what we clearly said would happen

Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From “Booker: Stop "fearmongering" over what we clearly said would happen”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Cory Booker is fed up with all this fearmongering from his fellow Democrats. Some of them are in a panic over Beto O’Rourke’s claim during the last debate that the government was going to “take your AR-15.” He decided to air this complaint during an interview on CNN Friday. (National Review)

Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker on Friday criticized what he called “fear-mongering” about police showing up to confiscate legally owned assault-style weapons such as the AR-15 rifle.

“I hate when Democrats use the language that Republicans try to use to scare people away as opposed to the sort of pragmatism and practicality of this,” the New Jersey senator said during an interview with CNN. “We’ve seen around this world, countries that have said enough of these assault rifles. They dealt with the problem that got them off of their streets. These weapons should not be in this country.”

Booker said he supports the policy proposed by fellow presidential contender Beto O’Rouke, who made headlines during Thursday evening’s Democratic debate for pledging, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.”

This becomes even more humorous when you consider that Booker is already on record as supporting O’Rourke’s proposal of having a mandatory “buyback” program. Just as a reminder for the senator, you can’t “buy back” something you didn’t sell. Also, if it’s mandatory, then it’s not a buyback. It’s gun confiscation.
