Kamala Harris Promises Executive Gun Control If She Becomes President
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.
