Thank you Corey Booker for being a voice of reason as it pertains to this "fake gun debate"

Cory Booker is a weird Democrat. He's the mayor of Newark New Jersey. What makes him weird is that a lot of times he sounds like a logical conservative even though he is considered a rising star Democrat. Cory came out earlier this year in defense of private equity firms like Baine Capital and the need for them while his fellow Democrats were trying to demonize private equity in order to rip Romney.


 Well, Cory was at it again using common sense when he appeared today on ABC's This Week Sunday. He was blunt and to the point. Nobody who is a supporter of the right to own guns is saying that mentally ill people should be allowed to get guns, only the opposite. Furthermore, the people  who get their guns to commit crimes get them from the secondary market  not in gun stores. There needs to be a crack down on the black market of guns sales just like how law enforcement and the legal system deals with illegal narcotic crimes.A terrorist can sneak into this country and buy guns on the black market, because he knows full well if he goes to buy a gun in a gun store, he will be flagged. What is going on is a false and fake debate, because it is fake if the real issue for gun violence isn't addressed.

As I said in a previous blog, anyone can get a gun anywhere on the black market; whether it is on the street or you can go to your local garage sale. I'm not sure how the pawnshops work when it comes to buying or selling handguns, but they should to go through the same protocols like most of these gun stores.

So how should we crack down on illegal gun purchase/sales? They should have an undercover police officer to go to hot spots out and make the purchase to catch the people selling these weapons.

CB;"There needs to be a crack down on the black market of guns sales just like how law enforcement and the legal system deals with illegal narcotic crimes".

The crack down on illegal drugs worked real well, didn't it...

And of course illegal drug dealers never have, use or traffic in illegal guns. Yeah right....

Who would be so stupid to believe that the war on drugs has even been close to being effective. Yet, you suggest that they crack down on illegal gun trafficking "just how" they handle illegal drugs? Really??? If you're saying they should be handled the same, basically you're saying "guns" should be illegal and outlawed like crack cocaine. Is that what you're implying?

Guns are legal, drugs are not. Guns are sold by dealers, and in many states through private transactions between citizens. Moreover, state and federal laws prohibits an unlicensed person who's not a professional from selling or even giving away a "prescription drug."

Very few states require that you register your guns. With private activity being legal among non-felons, and state laws that don't require registration, how can you or the authorities tell what's a legal gun, and what isn't?

If the government (or the people) can't even begin to find a solution to the illegal drug trade, what makes "YOU" think... better still, why would you even suggest that they go after illegal guns in the same manner? As a matter of fact, wasn't tracking illegal guns the idea behind "Fast and Furious?" You see how well that worked out...

Again Tyrone, your angle proves to be quite the contrary of common sense. Either you're one of those paranoid gun nuts that believe "Obama want's to take away the guns." Or as usual, you're shilling for your "agenda driven" right-wing conservative cohorts.
