Booker: Shut Down Gun Shows
and Private Sales, Cut Rate
of Women Murdered

PJ Media, by Bridget Johnson

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/15/2013 10:55:26 AM

Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker contended that closing down private gun sales would dramatically cut the number of domestic violence slayings. “What we see in Newark is that law abiding citizens buying guns are not causing the crime. It is that criminals can so easily get their hands on guns,” Booker said last night on MSNBC. “…You have an overwhelming majority of gun owners agree with instant background checks, agree that we should end the gun show loophole and end these secondary markets.” “The best data point I have on this is that when you

Comments:
This would really make a difference to all the criminals in Chicago and other high crime cities. Heavy s/o This gun control fiasco sure is showing the true colors of Democrats and their complete disregard for the Constitution. You have to wonder if this happened before the election it could have changed the outcome. Too late now.

Booker needs to focus on angry men who will kill women by whatever means necessary. They don´t need funs.

Hmmm. So Mr. Booker thinks guns are the bane of women?

Tell that to the half-million female babies left as puddles on Planned Parenthood clinic floors every year...

Or just pour yourself a cup of tea to go with that sanctimony.

FTA: "What we see in Newark is that law abiding citizens buying guns are not causing the crime. It is that criminals can so easily get their hands on guns,"

Make a magic law such that all gun sales go through a background check and the only thing that would change is that criminals would simply break another law when buying guns from one another, or stealing them. This joker will go far in Democrat politics; not too bright, just the right skin tone.

Booker has it all figured out. Tell the gang bangers it is illegal to purchase guns at gun shows or from private parties and they will stop killing. What a brilliant man. s/o

There is no gun show loophole. People who buy at gun shows must have background checks, the same as gun stores.
This gov´t has made rich people the bad guys, now it is the gun shows.
Stop falling for this crap, people.

Why don´t the dems crack down on the criminals who use guns the way they want to crack down on the guns themselves? Silly question, criminals are a big part of their constituency.

Actually as you make guns more difficult for law abiding citizens to obtain you would likely see a rise in the number of women murdered. There´s a good reason a gun is known as an equalizer.

These gun-banners are irrationally focused on gun shows. They are the monster under the bed for them. None bother to find out that the percentage of criminals who obtain weapons at gun shows is in the low single digits. Closing every gun show would have no effect on crime. None. Zip. Nil.

And the "gun show loophole"? Do they even know what that is? That "loophole" is just private, law abiding citizens engaging in private legal transactions to buy/sell a legal product. Just as you might sell an old appliance to a friend or neighbor. All licensed dealers peform background checks at gun shows just like they do in their stores.

#5 nailed it. I have been to a number of gun shows in Texas and have never seen anyone who resembled a "gang banger". Most attendees appear to me to be middle class gun enthusiasts of all races.

I´m sure that once private sales are outlawed the thief who steals a gun won´t sell it to a gang banger because it would be against the law. Good grief are these liberals that naive or just that stupid?

Restrict gun ownership to those who vote Republican, and the gun crime rate will dip drastically.

If they don´t want to own guns, then they can divest. Just like those who advocate for higher taxes can pay more. But, in either case, they will not.

Ann Coulter is right.

Let´s start by confiscating all guns held by black people.

I know...I know....we´ll need a catchy name so it won´t sound racist....let´s call it: "Affirmative Action".

All you have to know is history is our teacher and nothing good has ever come from gun confiscation. There are millions upon millions of dead in other countries who disarmed like the liberals are trying to accomplish in this country. You must ask yourself what is their end game because it sure isn´t public safety.

Oh, Corey. You had promise at one time. It´s gone, though. Sad.

Gang bangers who kill women will kill then with or without a gun. They are also not going anywhere near a gun show. Know why? Because gun shows are filled with ATF agents and cops. And not as customers. They´re watching everything anyone does. Illegal transactions at a gun show would be very, very difficult to accomplish.

Also, let´s not forget that all those female (and male) puddles left at the abortion clinic, are all innocent babies who had the misfortune of having a mother that murdered them.

"The right to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED." Seems exceedingly clear.


Too stupid to understand it, or too dishonest to follow the pledge to ´preserve and protect the Constitution´?

I´m thinking BOTH.

David Brat, the long-shot challenger to Congressman Eric Cantor (R-VA) in Virginia´s 7th Congressional District, is demanding an investigation into the new executive director of the Virginia Republican party, Shaun Kenney, after it was revealed Kenney´s consulting firm is now on Cantor´s payroll. "If Eric Cantor´s campaign or any of his affiliates has hired Shaun Kenney’s consulting firm, any pretense of fairness in the upcoming Seventh District Congressional Race is diminished," Brat wrote in a letter to Pat Mullins, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia (RPVA).

The White House has announced that John Podesta, President Obama’s current Counselor, will lead his delegation to the Holy See for the Mass of canonization of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II on April 27, 2014. Podesta will head the delegation which will also include Rep. Xavier Becerra, chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, and Katie Beirne Fallon, Assistant to the President and Director of Legislative Affairs. Podesta is the founder and chairman of the Center for American Progress (CAP), a liberal think tank funded by wealthy liberal supporters such as George Soros, Peter B. Lewis, Steve Bing, and

National security should serve policy objectives. It should not be a victim of political correctness. Politics should be kept especially far away from the practice of intelligence. Today´s decision by the NYPD to close the unit that was mapping Muslim communities in New York is very likely a product of political pressure. It is a decision that will make the city targeted in the largest terrorist attack in modern history less safe. I have gone on record in the past—on Al Jazeera, of all places—to explain why the program was a good idea and crucial to preventing terrorist plots in the future. In

Bloomberg Plans a $50 Million

Michael R. Bloomberg, making his first major political investment since leaving office, plans to spend $50 million this year building a nationwide grass-roots network to motivate voters who feel strongly about curbing gun violence, an organization he hopes can eventually outmuscle the National Rifle Association. Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, said gun control advocates need to learn from the N.R.A. and punish those politicians who fail to support their agenda — even Democrats whose positions otherwise align with his own. “They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you,’ ” he said of the N.R.A.

A Denver, Colorado mother has been shot dead in front of her children by her ´hallucinating´ while she was on a 13 minute call to 911, police said. Kristine Kirk, 44, called for help around 9:30p.m. Monday, telling dispatchers that her husband Richard Kirk, 47, was ´talking about the end of the world´ and ´scarring´ their three children. A source told FOX31 investigators are looking at whether he had eaten a marijuana cookie. Mrs Kirk said in the 911 call that there was a gun in the house but it was in a safe, according to a probable cause statement. ´She then said

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
