“The proposed red-flag gun laws allowing for a temporary suspension of Second Amendment rights would still not be enough to prevent mass shootings,” said democratic presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker in a CNN interview.
“I have a comprehensive plan, perhaps the most far-reaching amongst the Democratic candidates and yeah, so-called red-flag laws are part of that. And we should do that as a nation,” he said on CNN’s “State of the Union.
“But it’s not going to be enough to end the epidemic of mass shootings. And it’s not going to be enough to really restore a sense of — bring a sense of calm and security back to our nation,” Sen. Booker said on “State of the Union.”
“We need far more bolder action to make our nation safe. Red-flag laws, yes, they’re important, but they’re nowhere near enough to stop these rising levels of mass shootings. Now having … less sunrises and sunsets than we’ve had mass shootings — we have to do more. The American public should demand more. And frankly, things like background checks are overwhelmingly supported by gun owners. The fact that we’re not doing that is a failure of leadership,” added Sen. Booker.
