CA – GUN POLITICS – Bloomberg campaigns in San Diego for first time

Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg visited San Diego for the first time as a candidate for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination Sunday, meeting with veterans. Bloomberg later met with gun control supporters, including San Diegans for Gun Violence Prevention founder and City Council District 7 candidate Wendy Wheatcroft. Bloomberg’s gun control proposals include: Creating an effective background check system so no one can purchase a gun without passing a completed background check; Closing the “boyfriend loophole” which allows domestic abusers to have guns, despite criminal convictions or restraining orders, because they are not married to their victims; Requiring gun buyers to be at least 21 years old to buy handguns and semi-automatic rifles and shotguns; Setting a temporary bar on gun possession by assault and other violent misdemeanor offenders; Reinstating the federal ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines; Banning all guns in elementary and secondary schools, colleges, and universities, except for law enforcement; Funding at least $100 million annually for local violence intervention programs; Increasing funding for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives by up to $100 million annually so it is able to police the gun industry more effectively; Requiring all gun buyers to wait at least 48 hours before any firearm purchase; Requiring all gun owners to report to police if their firearms have been lost or stolen, within three days after they know or should know that their guns are missing. The National Rifle Association tweeted that “Bloomberg wants gun registration and every oppressive/failed gun control scheme ever conceived” and called him a “hypocritical billionaire, with 24/7 armed guards” who “doesn’t believe self-defense is a fundamental human right or that gun ownership is a right as determined by the Supreme Court.”  [full article]
