The presidential campaign of Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) is not exactly energizing the country.
As such, he is looking for ways to generate some interest, and it would appear as though going after the NRA is his master plan.
Booker stated, “We will bring a fight to the NRA like they have never, ever seen before – and we will win.”
When in Doubt…
Gun control is one of the fundamental arguments between liberals and conservatives and has been for decades.
Liberals continue to hold the weapon responsible for the crime rather than the person.
They also have a tendency to mischaracterize weapons as assault weapons when they are not.
All anyone needs to do is look at Chicago and LA for how effective gun regulations are.
The bottom line is that if people want to get a hand on a gun, regardless if it has been banned or not, they are going to do it.
When they can’t get a gun, they will use a knife.
When they can’t use a knife, they will use a vehicle.
Point being, evil is just evil, period.
Going After the NRA
The move by Booker to go after the NRA is a strategic one.
Booker stated, “We won’t wait for thoughts and prayers for communities that have been shattered by gun violence from Pittsburgh to Parkland to Charleston.
“We will pass universal background checks, we will ban assault weapons, and close loopholes that allows people who never should have a gun to get one.”
He knows this will put him on the radar of the NRA and gun enthusiasts, which means lots of free publicity.
However, it also means he more than likely cost himself about 40 percent of the vote right out of the gate.
With all his talk, though, Booker has not energized voters.
He is a cellar-dweller in terms of candidate fundraising and is simply not getting the attention Sanders and Harris are generating.
In all likelihood, Booker’s campaign will last about as long as Jeb Bush’s 2016 presidential campaign did.
