Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris recently promised that if she ever becomes president, she will implement red flag laws. But what seems to set her apart from many others is the criteria she uses. The Californian believes that seizing guns from white nationalists or any person exhibiting “traits of being a danger to society” could reduce violence in America.
Senator Bernie Sanders, a Democratic Presidential Candidate that believes he can survive the stress of the Presidency at the young age of 77, just made enemies with gun-wielding Americans. Previously, Bernie Sanders only wanted to ban the next generations from owning “military-style assault weapons”. Now, he wants to take away your guns. It shouldn’t come as a shock to many. After all, bad ideas need a disarmed populace to take effect as the majority of Americans dislike “democratic socialist” policies. After three mass shootings within the past week, Bernie seems to have been pushed further towards authoritarian policies. On Twitter, Bernie Sanders expressed his support for a national gun buyback program.
The federal government must ban assault weapons and implement a buyback program to get assault weapons off the streets.

Sound familiar? It should, because Californian Congressman and former Democratic Presidential Candidate, Eric Swalwell, proposed the same program. Swalwell also took the astounding position that the United States government would just nuke any American that attempted to resist the federal ban and buyback of “assault weapons”, so perhaps this program isn’t what’s best for the American people if all-out war is necessary to squash any dissent.
Democratic Presidential candidate John Delaney unveiled an ambitious new campaign policy on Sunday: mandatory national service. The former Maryland Representative’s plan would require any Americans born after 2006 to participate in one of several paths of public service. These include enlisting in the military, participating in community service projects, or joining a planned “Climate Corps.” While seemingly well-intended, the plan would allow the federal government to force young adults to serve their country, sending a clear message to Americans that we cannot even control our own lives.
U.S. Senator and popular 2020 Democratic Nominee for President Bernie Sanders reopened the previously sealed can of worms: Medicare for all. On Wednesday, Sanders disclosed his plans to present Congress with a new and improved version of a highly controversial bill.
