Kamala Harris Calls for “Assault Weapons” Ban in CNN Town Hall

Published

on

California Senator and freshly declared 2020 Presidential Candidate Kamala Harris called for a new “assault weapons” ban in a town hall event hosted by CNN today in Des Moines, Iowa with Jake Tapper.

Kamala contradictorily stated that one can “be for the Second Amendment” while claiming that “there was no reason in a civil society that we have assault weapons around communities that can kill babies and police officers.”

Any firearm can be used for malicious purposes such as killing babies or police officers, making Harris’ argument for gun control applicable to any firearm in civilian circulation in the United States.

Contrary to assertions from gun control supporters, “assault weapon” is a term that is purely a creation of political forces. It first entered wide circulation as a result of President Bill Clinton’s Federal Assault Weapons Ban of 1994. The term is distinct from the legitimate category of firearms known as “assault rifles,” a term used by gunsmiths, militaries worldwide, and others, to describe commonly owned firearms such as AR-15- pattern rifles.

Despite Harris singling out very commonly owned firearms as worth banning, guns such as AR-15 style-rifles are rarely used in violent crime generally. Research into their use in America suggests that assault rifles are used in less than 7% of violent crimes, with many estimates suggesting a figure of approximately 2%.

In the town hall, Harris also went on to call for an amnesty that would include not only recipients of DACA, but also their “parents,” possibly suggesting she would seek to grant amnesty to the broader population of more than 12 million people living in the United States illegally if elected President.

Arizona’s Maricopa County Declares Itself a Second Amendment Preservation County

Maricopa County is now the biggest 2nd Amendment Sanctuary county in the country.

Published

on

Arizona’s Maricopa County officially declared itself a ‘Second Amendment Preservation County’ with a vote by its board of supervisors Wednesday, making the Phoenix-area county the largest jurisdiction in the nation to align itself with the growing Second Amendment Sanctuary movement.

Maricopa County includes the vast Phoenix metro area and a population of 4.3 million people. It’s the fourth largest county by population in the entire United States.

The Second Amendment Preservation declaration voted upon by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors is largely a symbolic gesture. The resolution initially prevented any county funds from being used to infringe on gun rights, a provision that was dropped from the declaration.

The declaration states that the county supports the right to keep and bear arms by its residents.

Democratic Supervisor Steve Gallardo tried to stop the pro-Second Amendment declaration, stating that it was “divisive” and “partisan.” It comes as a surprise to many law-abiding Arizona gun owners that standing up for their basic Second Amendment rights is so divisive.

Arizona currently has some of the most permissive gun laws in the country for a medium-sized state, being rivaled only by other western states with much smaller populations. Current state law allows for residents to carry weapons openly or concealed without a permit from the state.

However, as new voters move to the state, it appears the state’s pro-Second Amendment culture may come under threat. Arizona Democrats continue to propose wide-ranging assault weapons ban and gun registration legislation, with a boldness some would’ve assumed to be political suicide previously in Arizona politics.

The state is genuinely trending purple, and a possible takeover of one chamber of the Arizona legislature by Democrats could put an assault weapons ban push in full swing. Arizona Governor Doug Ducey hasn’t inspired confidence among Second Amendment supporters, either, having pushed Red Flag judicial gun confiscation as robustly as any other governor in the country.
