Gillibrand calls for assault weapon and large magazine bans to combat gun violence

WARNER, N.H. —Presidential candidate Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., said that she does not support creating a federal firearm licensing system.

“No, I think there is a better approach,” Gillibrand told the Washington Examiner at a campaign stop in Warner, N.H. on Saturday, when asked about a plan proposed by primary rival Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J.

“To end gun violence, I would do three things,” she said. “I would, No. 1, pass universal background checks, which are common-sense and supported by 70% of America."

Her second move would be a federal law against trafficking guns. "Because for cities like Newark, New Jersey and cities like New York City, the guns are trafficked from out of state into the hands of criminals. And those networks aren’t even a federal crime," she said.

"And third, I would ban the bump stocks, the large magazines, and the military-style assault weapons.”
