Kamala Harris Gets Leveled on Twitter After Announcing Her Authoritarian Plan for Gun Control

Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) announced her plan to address mass shootings in the United States and seemed to claim that she would sidestep Congress to limit access to guns, triggering an avalanche of criticisms.

During her CNN town hall, Harris explained that she would give Congress 100 days to enact gun control policies before she took the reigns and implemented her own executive orders to restrict the Second Amendment.

Watch:

“We need reasonable gun safety laws in this country starting with universal background checkes and a renewal of the assault weapon ban. But [Congress has] failed to have the courage to act, so, Ben, here’s my response to you. 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.”

Harris explained that she would write executive orders requiring background checks requirements for all gun transactions so long as the seller makes more than five transactions per year and revoke the gun sales license from anyone found in violation.

Several people found her promise to sidestep Congress on the Second Amendment to be a huge problem. Many took to Twitter to call out the senator for her proposal.

One commentator even noticed that Harris seemed to be more open to allowing the Boston bomber to vote than she was to allow gun owners to maintain their rights. As IJR reported earlier, both Harris and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) supported the rights of felons to vote while in prison, including the terrorist who attacked the Boston marathon.

Harris isn’t alone in her anti-Second Amendment policy proposals. As IJR previously reported, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) has centered his presidential bid on gun control, proposing a full ban on semi-automatic “military style” weapons. He claimed gun owners would go to jail if they didn’t follow the mandatory gun buy-back he would implement as president.

“Upon being elected, I will give the United States Congress 100 days to get their act together . . . , and if they fail to do it, then I will take executive action.”

That is a the very definition of tyranny and is the exact reason that James Madison wrote the Second Amendment.

Kamala, running for a national political office is harder than servicing Willie Brown or preaching to your already “converted” minions in CA. You are flailing and your ambitions exceed your grasp.

Notice how the three leads are all WHITE MEN? How that must burn you, like Gollum and anything wholesome. Stay a big fish in your small pool.

Please don’t perceive your 2 up votes as an indication that it is normal to address a comment to someone who is not likely to see your post. Send her an email or text her campaign manager. Share your expertise in national Democratic primary campaigns and offer your vast knowledge.

So…how do you perceive your downvotes OR the fact that you are usually ignored.

Why are YOU writing to persons who are unlikely to read your posts.

I only do so, reluctantly, to poke you with a sharp stick.

If you are addressing your comment to Kamala, how are you poking ME with a sharp stick? If I was ignored, I would not have had 124 notifications within 48 hours. I do miss the old days when your posts made sense.

Clearly you have no acquaintance with literary techniques or a sense of humor.

Am I to surmise that you do?? Not seeing it. Sorry.

She’s desperately seeking support and attention. She knows this is unconstitutional and would be a “choose your adventure” path towards a hot civil war.

(1) Did you perceive the ban on assault weapons from 1994-2004 was ended because it was unconstitutional? It was not.
(2) When you start your “hot civil war,” who is it that you will be shooting?

Playing dumb only works when you aren’t actually dumb Phil.
1. set to sunset. i.e. it expired, after doing zero to reduce crime. Note the FBI stats that show <3% of crimes are committed with long guns.
2. as if you couldn't guess.

I do not personally know anyone that wants to start a civil war. I asked because I can not figure out who you think you are going to shoot. Dylann Roof wanted to start a civil war and he is sitting on death row. Just something to keep in mind. Richard Poplawski killed 3 Pittsburgh police officers because he claimed Obama was coming for his guns. He is on death row. Something to keep in mind.

All democrats are terrorists who want to disarm us and subvert the constitution….this is not just a war of words… it’s an actual war…. of the liberals win with out firing a shot… we’re all screwed… even the idiots who voting for them… trust in the fact that even though you voted for these losers… you ain’t getting your free stuff…

Be prepared. Contrary to what the idiot Left believes, the civil war will be an insurgency. Nobody sane stands together to be nuked. (thanks SwelledHead)

Kamala Harris is a Socialist, and Socialism is simply the brand marketing for tyranny.

I. Chin
Member

No, the brand marketing for socialism is “democratic socialism”, though I have YET to meet someone who can explain the difference.

They usually go into sphincter-lock when I ask them “So if it doesn’t work we can vote them and their policies out. Right?”

Phyllis Softa

WHO have you asked? WHY are you unable to use your internet search engine? Are you boycotting Google or have they banned you from using it? Try Bing. In the meantime, a socialist wishes to TRANSFORM their capitalism economy from private ownership to collective ownership. Democratic Socialist is a citizen registered as a member of the Democratic Socialist party. They wish to REFORM capitalism to address social inequalities. Unlike socialism, private ownership remains intact.

If you need to know the difference between Democrats& Trump Republicans, I can help you out with that too. Democrats acknowledge that our government is based on capitalism but since 1778, has included socialistic programs, i.e., US military is not a private entity but supported by the US government. Trump Republicans appear to believe the US military, public schools, FBI, CIA SS, are owned & operated by private corporations, which would be the case under full capitalism.

Sadly once any policy has been voted in can it be voted out just because it did not work.

I. Chin

I agree. Reversing legislation is several orders of magnitude harder than voting it in.

I’m wondering if she has ever so much as glanced through the Constitution I couldn’t tell you many rights we have from the bill using direct quotes, but I can tell you the second amendment gaurantees a right to bear arms so we don’t get pushed around and forced to do things like the colonists were by the British crown with absolutely no representation. We were merely a resource to harvest to them and that’s exactly what we are to Harris and stalwell a commodity to be used to benefit them.

Also if we don’t obey them as our new overlords which is what they think a president is I guess aka a CIVIL SERVANT that we elected to a temporary office that we place way too much importance on. The president is literally just one of three cogs in the machine that is our government. They are there to serve the people’s interests and to further the beneficial things that aid the citizens. Nothing more they aren’t gods or Kings they again are civil servants there to serve the people.

I think she and other idiots like SwelledHead are hoping to push a hot civil war. They probably envision it as quick and that they’ll be the winners.

BWAHAHAHA!

To paraphrase, I’ll surrender my firearms when I’m out of bullets. Too bad I lost them waterskiiing. (PVC piping and dry pouches are excellent insurance).

She’s too busy wasting our tax dollars on bullshit hoax collision investigations and taking money from special interests and her new world order handlers to be bothered with doing her actual job.
