Peter Funt, the former host of Candid Camera, had choice words for Kamala Harris’s gun ownership
In a classic case of the Left eating its own, Funt criticized Harris for owning a firearm in a USA Today op-ed.
According to a statement from a campaign aide to CNN, Harris owns a handgun.
This was enough to set Funt off.
Funt argues that Kamala Harris “has shot herself in the foot” for owning a gun.
The former Candid Camera host added that “Keeping a handgun for personal safety is a bedrock conservative view.”
While campaigning in Iowa, Harris stated that “I am a gun owner,” and justified her gun ownership on the grounds of “personal safety.”
Interestingly, BLP covered Kamala Harris’s latest call for gun control via executive order. Under a potential Harris administration, she vowed to take executive action if Congress didn’t take action within her first 100 days in office.
However, this was not enough for Funt who believes that “owning a handgun is a bad idea.”
Funt concluded by saying that “Kamala Harris doesn’t seem to have the courage to concede that owning a handgun for protection is a bad idea. Instead, she has given voters a real choice: Back candidates who care enough about gun control to not own handguns, or support the only major Democratic contender who has one and won’t throw it away.”
Despite anti-gun leftists’ insistence that the U.S. has non-existent gun control regulations, progressives have been able to score a few gun control victories over the last 70 years at the federal levels.
However certain states have made efforts to reverse these gun control trends.
Despite hand-wringing from gun control activists, crimes rates have dropped steadily as gun ownership has increased over the past few decades.
Mark Perry of the American Enterprise Institute details this:
Adjusted for the US population, the number of guns per American increased from 0.93 per person in 1993 to 1.45 in 2013, which is a 56% increase in the number of guns per person that occurred during the same period when gun violence decreased by 49%.
There appears to be no pro-gun candidates on the Democratic side of the aisle for the 2020 elections
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
