If she is able to obtain the presidency in 2020, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) intends to enforce red flag laws that would deny firearm rights to “white nationalists.”
She announced her intentions today to urge Congress to revoke the 2nd Amendment and due process for anyone deemed by the government as a “white nationalist” under a “domestic terrorism prevention order,” if she becomes president. Harris is centering her campaign around the collective punishment of white people.
“We need to take action to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people and stop violent, hate-fueled attacks before they happen,” Harris said. “By focusing on confronting these domestic terror threats, we can save lives.”
Adam Skaggs, who works as chief counsel for the gun control group Giffords, is cheering on Harris’ proposal to expand the scope of red flag laws beyond what has already been signed into law throughout the country.
“It’s great that states are making progress on this on a state-by-state basis, but this is a nationwide problem and we need a nationwide solution and that is where a federal solution comes in handy,” said Skagg, who spoke with the Harris campaign about her restrictive proposal.
“(Red flag laws) have been particularly effective in preventing suicide, but there is another problem that really needs attention and that is the rise of hate-fueled crime,” he added.
Harris also intends to write an Executive Order forcing states to mandate background checks on all online gun sales if she is elected president.
“In America, loaded guns should not be a few clicks away for any domestic terrorist with a laptop or smartphone,” Harris said.
While white nationalism may pose a national security threat, the danger of Harris’ proposal is that the fake news media and Democratic Party operatives have spent the last several years smearing every Trump supporter, Republican, conservative and libertarian as a “white nationalist” regardless of the evidence.

After today there is no longer any room for nuance. The President is a white nationalist terror leader. His supporters – ALL OF THEM – are by definition white nationalist terror supporters. The MAGA hat is a KKK hood. And this evil, racist scourge must be eradicated from society.

If you’re a Trump supporter and you STILL don’t think Trump is racist & bigot, please do NOT Waste my time asking me to: “Give you examples of where Trump’s a racist” so you can then try to explain it away. You’re as much of a part of the problem as Trump #WhiteSupremacistInChief

The parents of this baby boy were murdered by a Trump white nationalist and the relatives of the baby let him be used as a prop by Trump. That you were there and did not step in is not something to brag about @JohnCornyn

President Donald Trump, by pushing to pass unconstitutional red flag laws, is laying the groundwork for the Democrats to revoke gun rights for his supporters the next time they seize power.
Will Joe Manchin Pose a Threat to Gun Rights?
Manchin may not be as moderate as some make him out to be.
The common perception heading into the Biden presidency is that West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin will be one of the most powerful Senators in the next few years.
Given the conservative nature of Manchin’s West Virginian constituents, he has had to take several moderate positions and not move lockstep with the Democrats’ leftist faction. For example, Manchin has already gone on record against getting rid of the filibuster — an idea that is popular among progressives in the Democrat Party.
However, on the Second Amendment, Manchin will likely fall in line with his anti-gun Democrat colleagues, As Cam Edwards reported at Bearing Arms, Manchin told CNN’s Jake Tapper that he is willing to move gun control in the next congressional session. However, he wiggled his way out of Tapper’s question about banning modern sporting rifles.
“There has to be responsibility in gun ownership. I’m not going to eliminate people having their gun,” Manchin answered. “They shouldn’t be scared to death of Democrats on their Second Amendment, taking their guns away. … So no, we’re not going to take people’s guns away, but there are things that we should not have in people’s hands.”
West Virginia is known for having solid gun laws that make it easy for lawful individuals to possess and carry firearms. In light of this, Manchin has to take a measured approach to wedge issues like gun control lest he wants to face the wrath of West Virginia’s rabidly pro-gun voters.
However, we shouldn’t forget that Manchin teamed up with Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook massacre to push a universal background check bill. Grassroots pro-Second Amendment activists were able to defeat this anti-gun scheme, which left Obama and company disappointed. Additionally, pro-gun organizations such as the National Association for Gun Rights made a name for themselves in 2013 by exposing this bipartisan gun grab. Manchin can go the anti-gun route like most of his Democrat colleagues and he’ll try to find squishy Republicans to help propose “reasonable” forms of civilian disarmament.
Gun owners will likely have to step up again to confront another set of gun grabs. Democrats are now much more radicalized and they’re looking to exploit nationwide hysteria following the January 6th incident to ram through gun control. As always, right-wingers will have to remain vigilant.
