Published

Senator Kamala Harris wants to use executive overreach to implement gun control.

According to Bloomberg News, Kamala Harris promises to use executive action to pass gun control if she’s elected as President and Congress does not do its part to pass gun control in her first 100 days in office.

Some of Harris’s proposals include expanding background checks and taking licenses away from gun manufacturers.

At a town hall event sponsored by CNN in New Hampshire, Harris said “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.”

On top of the aforementioned background checks, Harris wants to re-instate a so-called “assault weapons” ban that was in place from 1994 to 2004 and ban high capacity magazines.

The Harris campaign did concede that her executive orders would face stiff legal challenges but it counters “that the legal definitions it is seeking to change are open to interpretation.”

With Democratic Party officials openly discussing plans to pack the courts, Harris’s proposals could actually be tolerated by a newly-packed Supreme Court of leftists.
Interestingly, this Bloomberg News report of Kamala Harris’s announcement comes from a media outlet that is part of a larger conglomerate, Bloomberg LP.

Gun control oligarch Michael Bloomberg is the owner of Bloomberg LP and is a major financier for Everytown for Gun Safety, a gun control organization that has ramped up its activism in state legislatures nationwide ever since the 2018 Parkland shootings.

Harris now joins the likes of Bernie Sanders and Robert “Beto” Francis O’Rourke in advocating for radical forms of gun control

Greg Abbott Signs Executive Order Keeping Violent Criminals from Going Back on the Streets During the Wuhan Crisis

Published

on

After the Wuhan Virus was confirmed in several Texas jails in the last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order on March 29, 2020 that makes it more difficult for several inmates to be let out on “no-cost, personal recognizance bonds.”

Abbott tweeted, “Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails. We want to prevent the spread of #COVID19 among prison staff & inmates. But, releasing dangerous criminals in the streets is not the solution. #txlege #coronavirus

Several cases of the Wuhan Virus were discovered in the Dallas County Jail and Harris County Jail last week, two of the state’s largest jails. In addition, a handful of cases were confirmed in state prisons. According to NBC DFW, the virus’ outbreak was “followed by demands to reduce the inmate populations by releasing, immediately and without bond or judicial delay, those held on misdemeanor crimes or awaiting trial on misdemeanor crimes. Some also called for non-violent felons to also be released on no-cost bonds.”

Abbott said Sunday that “releasing dangerous criminals makes the state even less safe” and issued a proclamation to prevent judges, and others, from releasing some inmates without a paid, cash bond.

In his executive order, Abbott declared that a person convicted of a crime that involved or threatened physical violence, or a person arrested for such a crime backed by probable cause, or a person with a criminal history of violent crime, cannot get out of jail on a no-cost personal recognizance bond.

With a PR bond, a defendant is released without having to post any money for his or her bond on the promise they’ll show up to their next court date.

Instead of virtue signaling and buying into the criminal justice reform movement’s desire to foment anarcho-tyranny, Abbott has held his ground by promoting public order.

A crisis like the Wuhan Virus pandemic does not need to be exacerbated by opening up the prison floodgates.

This is one case where American policymakers should use logic not emotion to craft prison policies in times of a pandemic.

Failure to do so will put the U.S. on the road to institutional failure.
