Politicians don’t need an understanding of the issues, they just need to know buzzwords and ways to appeal to emotion. This 2020 Presidential candidate is no exception.
His proposals are nothing new, but I can say they are getting more extreme.
- Now they aren’t pushing for registration, they’re pushing for a required license - which would be the same as registration from a tracking purpose but even worse from a denial perspective.
- He is pushing to ban “military-style semi-autos” which is an even broader category than their previous “assault weapon” bans.
- He wants to fine gun manufacturers for what criminals do with their guns
- He wants to pay for free upgrades to smart guns that can be only fired by their owner, even though upgrade technology like that doesn’t exist
And he has more proposals, all either completely idiotic or completely totalitarian. I dig into all of them in greater detail in the above article.
