Bloomberg Calls for a Nationwide Permit Before Being Able to Buy a Gun

Watch as 2020 candidate Michael Bloomberg calls for requiring citizens nationwide to obtain a permit before they can buy a gun:

Partial transcript:

BLOOMBERG: “One of the biggest problems with existing background check systems has nothing to do with the database. It contains a lot of useful information about criminal history but most of it can’t be used actually to deny a purchase and we’re going to change that by requiring buyers to obtain a permit before they purchase a gun.

Because just having a background check isn’t enough. The question is, even no matter what the background check says, can you stop them from getting a gun when they’re a minor, when they have a criminal record or when they have psychiatric problems?

This permit will allow authorities to screen applicants for dangerous behavior and I just think about you and I in our conversation before about your son four months ago being shot and killed. That includes arrests of violence like assault and domestic violence incidents and arrests for reckless behavior like driving while intoxicated.

Now, I know critics will say that an American shouldn’t need a permit to exercise their constitutional rights, but voting is a constitutional right and we require people to register to protect the rights of all citizens and this is exactly the same idea.

Because a criminal with a gun can destroy our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Permits have worked very well in the 11 states that have adopted them, including New York, I’m happy to say”

    1. Neither do auto drivers play by the rules, but they are required to have a driver’s permit prior to getting a license. So what’s your point!!!

  1. I must have missed the part where Bloomberg is calling for the elimination of gun free zones, and that he is encouraging appropriately trained teachers and staff to carry concealed firearms in schools. And that he’ll promote proper perimeter precautions around all schools from pre-school to grade 12.

    This guy is a boob. Must be really bored to spend the kind of money he’s spending on a venture in which he has zero chance for success.

  2. If I have to get a Nation Wide permit. I should be able to either open or conceal carry anywhere without having to get a permit.H

  3. It has not worked in New York,there more killings in so called gun free zones then anywhere else. Most shooting the person didn’t even have a record or the police in many cases didn’t act when they should of.So a guy with no record or minor mistermeanors,waits to get a permit,gets his gun then under bloombrain it will be ok for them to go out and kill because he got the permit.Crimals don’t abide by any gun laws. The democratic party pushes gun,gun, gun until someone snaps then they want to try to be heros.Starting we need gun control.This country needs to take a stand for their rights.The so called red flag law needs to be obolisbed/defeated. America get some guts and stand up to democratic cass pool trying to destroy this country.In Colorado our govoner has declared law enforcement that support his bill,they cannot be free lance killers under the red flag bill.

    1. Not yet, but it liberals or democrats (but I repeat myself) get their way, rationing gas might just be the first step towards phasing out gas powered vehicles.

  4. criminals, terrorists, thugs – always have a way of getting things. another rule and piece of paper//plastic–whatever, doesn’t change that. we’ve both had permits for years and we’re not criminals. and we still have to fill out same background check each time purchase a firearm through an FFL dealer here in Florida or any other place.
    How many criminals can say that….they don’t bother, like the rabid pack of jackals of the left, they just do what they want.

  5. Abu Tom SPIRIT OF AMERICA PARTY RADIO SHOW ON YOU TUBE ABUTOM

    Abu Tom TODAY IS PEARL HARBOR AND OUR INTEL STILL SUCKS. NO ONE SCREENED THE SAUDI SHOOTER AND THE FILM CREW. 911 WAS AN INTEL FAILURE AND MORE CIVILIANS DIED INCLUDING 200 PRO LIFE BABIES WHO WERE NOT COUNTED. THEY DIED WITH THEIR PRO LIFE MOTHERS. MAYOR BLOOMERS WANTED THE READING OF THE FALLEN DISCONTINUED AND IS QUOTED AS TELLING 911 VICTIMS TO GET OVER IT. YET HE USES 911 IMAGES IN HIS PROPAGANDA ADS. SURELY THIS GUY IS NOT WORTH HIS SALT WHICH HE BANS.
    AMERICANS HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT COMMUNISM. THEY WERE TOO YOUNG WHEN IT LANDED IN 1914 AND TOOK OVER THE NEGRO GARAGEMEN’S ASSOCIATION IN QUEENS, NY.. SO HERE IS A PRIMER. DEMOCRAT=COMMUNIST. THE LAST DEMOCRAT WAS HARRY TRUMAN.
    WHO SAID WHEN THEY CALL THE ROLL IN CONGRESS THEY DON’T KNOW WHETHER TO ANSWER PRESENT OR NOT GUILTY. HARRY DROPPED TWO BIG ONES TO SAVE A MILLION LIVES AND END THE WAR. IF YOU NEVER SAW A FILIPINO BABY ON THE END OF A JAPANESE BAYONET SPARE ME THE KUMBAYA SHIFF. THE ONLY REASON YOU AND I ARE ALIVE TODAY IS SOME YOUNG AMERICAN TOOK YOUR BULLET. WHEN YOU HEAR SOME ANTI AMERICAN SAY THEY ARE A LIBERAL. THINK COMMUNIST. WHEN THEY SAY THEY ARE CENTRIST THINK COMMUNIST. PROGRESSIVE=COMMUNIST. JOURNALIST=COMMUNIST. NOTICE THESE LABELS, RIGHT WINGER, CHRISTIAN, EXTREMIST, NAZI, FACIST ARE COMMON BUZZWORDS. THE ONE YOU WON’T HEAR IS COMMUNIST BECAUSE THAT IS WHO THEY ARE. HOLLYWOOD STAR =COMMUNIST BACK TO JOE MCCARTHY.
    WE HAVE LIVED THRU 3 YEARS OF A COMMUNIST POGROM LED BY THE DEMOCRAT COMMUNIST PARTY. THEY USE CLINTON AND NIXON AS THEIR BASIS. THEY SHOULD BE USING CARDINAL MINDZENTY,IMRE NAGY AND GARY POWERS. SURELY THIS IS A SOVIET SHOW TRIAL. NO WITNESSES, NO DEFENSE,NO PROOF, NO GOD, NO COUNTRY, NO FLAG , NO ANTHEM AND NO KIDS.

  6. The Globalist Liberal NAZI Demoncrat Commie party and the useful idiots don’t give a crap about gun violence! They just want to take away your guns to leave you defenseless against Government tyranny! Wake up patriots before it’s too late! Defend the 2nd amendment!

    1. AMEN
      Patriots of the United States need to UNITE one to fight against the government controlling democrats and two we need to take back our country from those that don’t like what our constitution stands for not what meaning they can twist out of it.

  7. Face it – Bloomberg is just another globalist who wants to disarm the population. All while releasing hundreds of thousands of prisoners, some of which won’t care what his laws say. We won’t be able to protect ourselves, drink what we want (remember the outlawing of the Big Gulp in NYC), eat what we want, etc… – the socialist/communist utopia. NO DEMS OR RINOS IN 2020! Common sense and our Constitution must prevail if we are to have any semblance of freedom left.

    1. WHEN BLOOMBERG WENT TO BAHAMAS A WHILE BACK HE SPENT A FORTUNE ON PERMITS SO HIS ARMED GUARDS COULD BRING THEIR GUNS TO PROTECT HIM. POLICE THERE CAN’T CARRY GUNS. SO GUNS ARE ONLY OK FOR PRIVILEGED FEW.

  8. You cannot require a permit or license for a Constitutional right!! You cannot require a permit or license to take a breath get a drink,walk down the street. This is purely an attempt of the democratic party to disarm as many Americans as possible so when the pavement meets the road they have fewer people with guns to fight. You know when they decide you do not get to own private property anymore or force you to work for 1/5 of regular wage. When they force you to pay for the insurance of millions of illegal people that should not be here,but they are here to vote in the democratic criminals that enforce this action.

  9. Bloombug is a complete idiot . Why did he have 8 detectives 24 hours a day carrying weapons for his protection when he was mayor of NY . These Dick heads want security and the general public can go to hell.shove it bloombug. I’ll keep my guns and you can kiss my 87 year old ASS.
