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.

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.

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

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.
