Kamala Harris Has a Chance to Enact Major Gun Control Legislation

Yahoo News

On Wednesday, January 20, Kamala Harris will not only become the first female vice president, but she’ll also become the first Black woman and first Asian-American woman to hold the position. Harris has made her position on the gun control debate clear: During her presidential campaign last year, Harris declared that she would sign an executive order “mandating background checks for customers of any firearms dealer who sells more than five guns a year,” per the New York Times, if Congress didn’t take action within the first 100 days. She also stated that she would close the boyfriend loophole and ban assault weapons, and fugitives would not be allowed to purchase any handgun or weapon.

Since making those statements, she has remained consistent on her stance, and emphasized that it’s possible for citizens to keep their Second Amendment rights while also passing effective gun control legislation that could save millions of lives. (For the record, she’s a gun owner.) In August 2019, four months after the executive order statement, Harris once again laid out her gun control proposal as president:

“As president, I will take executive action to:

→Revoke the licenses of gun manufacturers & dealers that break the law

→Require anyone who sells more than 5 guns/yr to run a background check on all gun sales

→Ban the importation of AR-15-style assault weapons”

Of course, there’s a chance these proposals could shift now that Biden is the president-elect, but Biden has also maintained a strong stance on gun control. He has a close relationship with Fred Guttenberg, father of Jaime Guttenberg—one of the 17 victims of the Parkland shooting on February 14, 2018—and has a history of battling the National Rifle Association (NRA). In 1993, Biden helped pass the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, which enacted the federal background check system. The following year, Biden and Senator Dianne Feinstein also passed a 10-year ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.

Together, the NRA knows that Biden and Harris have a powerful stance on gun control. The gun rights advocacy group, which is currently being sued by New York Attorney General Letitia James, attacked Harris and Biden on Twitter immediately following Biden’s VP announcement and claimed that “Harris’s presidential campaign died soon after announcing extreme gun control agendas.”

  1. Nothing this Criminal does could possibly be legal, and if you listen to John on the show today, it’s obvious 80% of the vote went to Trump.

    This whole charade has got to be stopped. Internationally America is a joke. It really starts to hit home when you start hearing this criminal talk. They’re all criminals. I’m having a hard time even talking about it everything is gone. Anything that was ever good in America is now gone.

    I’m ashamed to be an American right now, this country has gone to hell
    I just thank God that I have the site and all of you because without it I’d be going f****** crazy
    Where the hell are all of our generals? Do they give a goddamn?

  2. … the NRA knows that Biden and Harris have a powerful stance on gun control.”
    Well, the NRA & GOA are here to save us from these gun grabbers. Go to sleep, don’t worry, just send money and all your probs will go away.
    This from GOA,”Today, the most radically anti-gun government takes control of America.
    Future generations of Americans are counting on you and me to step up at this critical moment in our nation’s history to save our Second Amendment rights.
    We want today to be our biggest fundraising day ever to show the country that patriots are united to defend the Second Amendment from Biden’s and Kamala’s destruction.”

  3. This means nothing
    Absolutely squat

    Unless you allow it

    The second article resides in me
    Want it ? How bad ?

    1. They will probably just slowly take the guns. They aren’t going to go door to door, unless they call in the Blue Helmets. Which might happen. I guess we will see.

      1. Take them slowly? Do you know how many guns you are talking about?
        And that ‘take’ thing truly gets to me. If they come with that intent, they are simply coming to live or die in a gun fight. End of story.

  4. These Sickophants have already stated they intend to do an Australian style Mandatory Buy-back scheme… Clearly not only will it not work, we are not Australians and We will absolutely engage any maggot enforcer whom attempts such.

    And, any other person calling themselves an American or whatever you fkn identify as, who participates in any Buy back or turn in scheme, you are 100% an enemy of the people, a traitor and will be treated as such, along with anyone, in any uniform that participates in these vial acts of the attempt to disarm Americans at any level.

    I agree it will be a ramp up, more fake staged shootings or what ever, who really cares anyways, do your worst mthrfkrs but please, please have the balls to send out your enforcers to do your dirty work, once it starts it does not end, until you suits have paid the higher price of effecting tyranny.

    DTTNWO eternal.

    1. Well, she’s workin’ her way up. Word has it the Fourteenth Step is utterly explosive and might even give her a new sponsor. 🙂


  5. Gee should I tell Commie Kammy to watch out for mountain lions? Nah…. if the bears don’t get her first…. Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahah!

  6. If they were truly concerned about the death toll of Covid
    Trying gun confiscation in this country will surely top that , and they too will be included in those numbers

  7. “On Wednesday, January 20, Kamala Harris will not only become the first female vice president, but she’ll also become the first Black woman and first Asian-American woman to hold the position.”

    Wow, Yahoo. Way to promote unity by publishing your first paragraph with a mouthful of unnecessary non stop segregation and discord.

    This is why I call Yahoo, “Cuu…ckooo….ooo!!!”

  8. the words executive order is starting to sound a little the word democracy. the more they say it the more the people believe it’s a thing. executive orders from the president ONLY APPLY to the executive branch of the federal govt.. NOT US!! .. hell.. I ain’t even sure Kamala can write an executive order.. i mean she ain’t the executive.. yet.
