Booker: Until We Love Kids More than Guns Nothing Will Change

May 30, 2022

Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press, grandstanding Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) claimed that gun control laws will not be passed until voters love children more than guns.

Booker said, “Whatever we can get done if it saves a life, it’s worth doing. My colleagues were entering bipartisan talks. I fully support that, but under no illusion that things need to be done that the majority of Americans overwhelmingly support Republicans and Democrats that can create significant safety. We know, even though the CDC has been undermined by the gun lobby where Senate Republicans won’t allow basic scientific research on gun violence, we know enough to know that there are things we can do that will dramatically lower gun violence.”

Fact check: we can dramatically lower gun violence, but not through stricter gun control legislation. Democrats, however, won’t even consider any solution that doesn’t include gun control, gun confiscation, and/or repealing the Second Amendment.

“I’m sorry we are at a point we have to mobilize a greater movement than just expressing regret and sorrow,” Booker pontificated. “Until the redemptive power of love for all of our children is greater than the destructive power of the love of our guns and money and power, until that redemptive love of our children turns into action, then nothing is going to change.”

What blather. The false argument that Americans love guns more than they do their children is stupid and offensive. It stems from a bumper-sticker mentality which reduces complex issues to catchy, heart-tugging slogans (“You can’t hug your child with nuclear arms”) that appeal to Democrat voters.
