    U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren unveiled a sweeping gun control policy Saturday as she joined several of her Democratic presidential rivals at an Everytown for Gun Safety forum in Iowa a week after a pair of mass shootings left 31 dead.

    Warren’s plan centers on reducing the number of gun deaths — nearly 40,000 nationwide in 2017 — by 80%.

    It’s an ambitious goal, (meaning unreachable) one the Massachusetts senator aims to accomplish by instituting background checks for gun purchases, including online and at gun shows; creating a federal licensing system; raising the minimum purchasing age to 21; prosecuting traffickers who move guns across state and international lines; and banning assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines.

    She would also cap firearm purchases to one per month; close the “boyfriend loophole” to protect survivors of domestic abuse; and raise taxes on gun manufacturers to 30% on firearms and 50% on ammunition, according to an online post introducing the plan.

    Libtards do what they do best, TAX.

    I'm sure the criminal scum will pay the taxes...

    I'm surprised she hasn't suggest a 50% tax on books, licence to speak in public and charging everyone who post online $20 for each post.

    Oh!

    And from the same article posted above,
    and right at the bottom...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg discussed reassessing the Second Amendment. “No amendment is in fact absolute,” Biden said.

    Now isn't that special???

    The USSC has already ruled that laws making it burdensome to exercise a constitutional right violate the constitution. Being a former law prof, Fauxcahontas should know that. So this proposal demonstrates that she will trample any constitutional right she dislikes.

    They want people to surrender their Right of self defense , either from criminals , or the State, because they feel afraid or, angry or upset and this would make them feel better, and , or good.

    You see, they don't care how many people get killed, or women get raped because they couldn't defend themselves, it all about these yoyos feeling good and nothing else; if they did then they would be screaming bloody murder about all the killings that happen in big cities, but they don't.

    I found out some time ago that Leftist only want to tell people how to live their lives, while at the same time DEMANDING that no one tell them how to live their's ( Socialism instead of Separatism ).

    I agree with all these replies. When Trump won I (man I was sweating that one out!) and when the SCOTUS ruled in favor of the 2nd amendment I thought we pro-gun people had the gun grabbers by the short and curlies. And we did for a nano second. Then something (Satan?) gave them a reason to continue fighting for gun bans, killing babies and other such immoral and purely ignorant issues. So I guess its going to be a fight. Trump is getting weaker on Gun control issue which didn't surprise me, especially after the mass shootings. He is a politician and he is afraid if he does nothing it will cost him votes. The bad thing is we can't vote against him because still he is the best thing going. I would like to see a republican that is even stronger advocate against gun control run for presidency. If there isn't such a savior in 2020 Trump is the best we have.

    2 things:

    #1, we won't have to worry because there will never be a Fauxcohontas presidency and #2, she can't create a tax unilaterally and even a Democrat led congress couldn't pass this one.

    No, it's not. It's about power & control. George Mason said, "To disarm the people is the most effectual way to enslave them". And he's 100% correct.

    Those are Kammy's defining principles, and it looks like Fauxcahontas' as well. Probably Bobby, Spit-n-cuss, and Doh! Mayor, too.
