Kamala Harris Pushes Major Changes to Second Amendment

Linkedin Share

After a crazed gunman killed at least 7 people at a 4th of July parade near Chicago, Vice President Kamala Harris is seeking to make some major changes to the way that Americans exercise the Second Amendment.

This is nothing new, of course; Democrats have long been willing to admit that they seek to exploit these sorts of crises for their own political gain.  But what Harris is suggesting now could lead to serious trouble.

Vice President Kamala Harris, in Chicago to speak to a teachers’ convention, addressed the July 4 mass shooting in Highland Park, Ill., saying “We need to end this horror. We need to stop this violence.”

Seven people were killed and dozens injured Monday when a shooter opened fire from a rooftop along a Fourth of July parade route in the suburban Chicago city.

Harris said July 4 “should have been a day to come together with family and friends,” but instead ended in violence.

“We must protect our communities from the terror of gun violence. I’ve said it before, enough is enough,” Harris told thousands of teachers gathered for the National Education Association convention.

Then came the truly worrisome suggestions:

Speaking to the NEA, Harris noted that Congress had passed some gun safety measures in the wake of Uvalde, which President Joe Biden has signed into law, but she said more was needed.

“Congress needs to have the courage to act and renew the assault weapons ban,” Harris said.

“An assault weapon is designed to kill a lot of human beings quickly,” she said.

“There is no reason we have weapons of war on the streets of America. We need reasonable gun safety laws,” she said.

An assault weapons ban would likely require government agents to somehow locate and confiscate weapons from Americans – a scenario that political observers have long suggested could lead to bloodshed.
