2020 Democrats vow gun control, confiscations, licensing or full bans on weapons or ammo

In the wake of two horrific mass shootings, one in El Paso, the other in Ohio, 202 Democratic candidates vow to react in extreme, unconstitutional ways with gun control measures.

Failed Texas Senate candidate, Beto O’Rourke is calling for an Australian-style gun confiscation, labeled a buy back after proclaiming most firearms illegal: ““It absolutely has to be part of the conversation,” O’Rourke said. “And at the end of the day, if it’s going to save lives, if it’s going to prevent the kinds of tragedies that we saw in El Paso, Gilroy, and Dayton, or this weekend in Chicago or all over this country on a daily basis, then let’s move forward and do it.”

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren promised to skirt the legislative branch and use her executive order powers to end the filibuster and ram through radical gun laws.

“I will do everything I can by executive order, but I will also lead on the argument of getting rid of the filibuster so that by a majority we can do what the American people have sent us there to do,” Warren said on MSNBC. “The filibuster is blocking action on guns.”

“On the first day that I’m president, the Republicans want to try to block things, then we get rid of the filibuster and we go with a majority vote,” she said.

While she spouts love and kindness, on gun control Marianne Williamson  says “We must outlaw all assault style weapons for civilian use…. Even then, there will still be millions of them on the street. Next we need to outlaw the manufacture and sale of the bullets that they carry.”

New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker calls for the ban of “assault weapons, high-capacity magazines, and bump stocks” and passing universal background checks to “close the loopholes that allow people who should never have a gun to get one.” He also calls for a gun licensing program, saying “if you need a license to drive a car, you should need a license to buy and possess a gun,”

Pete Buttigieg “supports a new federal ban on assault-style weapons, as well as a voluntary buyback program for existing assault-style weapons” (which are already illegal) and calls for establishing a nationwide gun licensing system, closing the “boyfriend loophole” while disarming domestic abusers, and investing in “evidence-based urban gun violence intervention programs proven to work,” according to his campaign website.

Frontrunner Joe Biden has vague statements and policy stances, supporting universal background checks and an assault weapons ban. He has also indicated that he’d be for prohibiting firearms that aren’t “smart guns,” which try to ensure the person pulling the trigger is the firearm’s owner by, for example, verifying a fingerprint.

Socialist Bernie Sanders promises to make background checks universal, ban assault weapons, and crack down on “straw purchases” of firearms.

Kamala Harris vows to sign executive orders to expand background checks, crack down on bad gun companies and dealers, make it more difficult for some people with criminal records (including domestic violence) to buy firearms, and ban the importation of some assault weapons into the US. She also said, on gun licensing, “I like the idea.”

Andrew Yang has outlined a “tiered” gun licensing system, which would require universal background checks and set escalating requirements for obtaining a license based on the weapon, with basic hunting rifles and handguns set at the lowest tier, semiautomatic rifles at the middle tier, and advanced and automatic weapons at the highest tier.
