Failing presidential candidate Cory Booker joined fellow Democrat Beto O’Rourke on gun control this week; confirming he would support a “mandatory buyback program” on “assault rifles.”
“Mandatory buyback or voluntary buyback?” asked the MSNBC moderator.
“This is another thing, to me, that’s just absurd… We’re talking about assault rifles. The overwhelming majority of Americans, over 75%, does not believe we should have weapons of war on our streets,” said Booker.
“You have a mandatory buyback program,” he added.

Booker managed to meet his last-minute fundraising deadline over the weekend; vowing to continue his quest to take-on President Trump in the 2020 race for the White House.
“Sen. Cory Booker’s (D-N.J.) White House campaign said that it met its goal of raising $1.7 million dollars a Monday deadline and announced the senator will continue his bid for the presidency,” reports The Hill.
“When we made the decision to be completely honest with folks about where we stood and what we needed to raise to put this campaign on a path to be successful, we didn’t know how people would respond,” Booker said in a statement.
“I’ve been overwhelmed by the response, and I couldn’t be more grateful to everyone who pitched in. This moment is a testimony to the power of what’s possible when people unite in common purpose and work toward a shared goal,” he added.

“She gave a speech where the President has pounced on words in a way that is outrageously unacceptable. It’s not only inspiring death threats against her, but it’s deepening the worst types of hatred and bigotry and this is unacceptable,” said Booker.
Rep. Omar found herself the center of a national controversy last week after she flippantly referred to the September 11th terror attacks that took the lives of nearly 3,000 Americans as “some people” who “did something.”

“We say an oath that we are a nation of liberty and justice for all, but that’s just words… How are we living our civic gospel that demands for us to reject the normalcy of injustice?” asked Booker.
“I’m a big believer that if this country hasn’t broken your heart then you don’t love her enough. There are things that are savagely wrong in this country,” he added.
