Buttigieg: Capitalism Has Let A Lot Of People Down, Democracy Is More Important Than Capitalism

CNN HOST:  I’m interested in if you think your fellow Democrats and some of your Democratic contenders and competitors in this race for the White House have vilified big business in a way that is dangerous, and capitalism, when now we know more Democrats view socialism favorably than capitalism.

BUTTIGIEG: Well, I think the reason we’re having this argument over socialism and capitalism is that capitalism has let a lot of people down. I guess what I’m out there to say is that it doesn’t have to be so. I believe in Democratic capitalism. But the Democratic part is extremely important.

Missouri Senate Bans All Federal Gun Control Laws in Proposed Bill

Missouri may have just made the most monumental step towards freedom and individual liberty since the signing of the Bill of Rights. In an upcoming vote by Missouri’s state senate, the state is expected to pass a bill that would nullify ALL Federal gun laws and regulations, and make enforcement of those laws by federal officers within the State of Missouri a criminal offense. Republicans control both U.S. Senate seats and more than two-thirds of the seats in both the Missouri House and Senate.

Like it’s predecessor, SB613, Bill SB367 and it’s companion, House Bill HB786, would prevent all state agencies and their employees from enforcing any federal law that infringes the Second Amendment in any way, including gun registrations, fees, fines, licenses and bans. Originally authored in 2014, a former version of the bill was also passed, but vetoed by then Missouri Governor Jay Nixon.

Robert ‘Beto’ O’Rourke: Ban Sales of AR-15 Rifles in America

In an interview published by the Hill, O’Rourke said current AR-15 owners ought to be able to keep their firearms, but further sales of the rifles in America ought to be prohibited. In the building up to his call for a ban O’Rourke described the AR-15 as super powerful weapon designed “for the express purpose of killing people as effectively as possible, in as great a number as possible.”
