Kamala Harris – “If Congress Doesn’t Enact Gun Control, I’ll do it by Executive Order With 100 Days of my Election”
In a CNN Townhall on April 22, Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA), who is running for the 2020 Presidency, made statements that seemed to want to destroy the 2nd Amendment.
If Congress fails to act on gun violence within my first 100 days in office, here’s my promise to you: I will take executive action to keep our kids and communities safe. Add your name next to mine to join me in this fight:https://t.co/49OvRi9fUS— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) April 23, 2019
Harris first stated that impeachment should be pursued against President Trump. Then she said that she would bypass Congress to enact gun control.
“Upon being elected, I will give the United States Congress 100-days to get their act together and have the courage to pass reasonable gun safety laws, and if they fail to do it then I will take executive action.” Kamala Harris via OANN
The NYT stated:
“On gun control, Ms. Harris announced that, as president, she would sign an executive order mandating background checks for customers of any firearms dealer who sells more than five guns a year. She would also include new regulation of gun manufacturers that could result in revoked licenses or prosecution.”
She wants “universal background checks,” and to hold Firearms manufacturers liable for any commission of a crime with their guns. And why is she targeting firearms dealers who “sell more than five guns a year?” Only a couple of people tweeted that the 2nd Amendment was outdated because the “British aren’t shooting at us anymore.” No, but others are. The reaction to her tweet about this was predictable:
Except that it’s the people who illegally own firearms that are illegally shooting people.— David Stephens (@DipshitDavid) April 23, 2019
Tell me, what’s the real reason you want to disarm the country?https://t.co/tPUo0Bzgzp

I have an idea, get the gangs off the street and watch how quickly gun violence drops. Stop ignoring the proven fact that gun violence only happens by non-law abiding citizens (and noncitizens) and by infringing our 2nd amendment right only puts law abiding citizens in harm’s way— The Conservative Trucker (@TheCons52910099) April 23, 2019
You can’t cry about trump and his executive orders and then promise the same thing. I am curious what your promises are, I clicked your link and it basically just said “sign up with me!” There was nothing about what your “good ideas” are.

here’s my promise to you….youll never make it past the primary— scubaeyedr (@scubaeyedr) April 23, 2019
So did she actually say she was “taking our guns” – no, she used the time honored Democrat tactic of using language to obfuscate her intentions. And she herself stated that she owns a gun for “personal protection” because she was a prosecutor. Then why does she advocate legislation or “Executive order” that only affects legal gun owners and even business owners? She has also advocated banning “assault weapons.”
In the election season, it is always wise to listen beyond the words themselves. Look up backgrounds. Challenge them about their stand. And with Democrats…just don’t vote for any.
