Kamala Harris Makes Wild Suggestion for Second Amendment

It’s no secret that the Democratic Party sees crises as opportunities, as they themselves have no problem admitting as much in the past.

The particularly offensive piece of this puzzle is that these crises often have a very real, very sad human toll, and the way that they are exploited to push political points is often considered gauche.

This week was no exception, as Vice President Kamala Harris again pushed for a major shift in the way that Americans can express their Second Amendment rights after a number of high profile mass shootings.

Vice President Kamala Harris on Sunday called for the reinstatement of the Federal Assault Weapons Ban, arguing that certain semi-automatic firearms are “intentionally designed” to kill people and only belong on the battlefield.

During an appearance on CBS News’ “Face the Nation,” Harris spoke about her visit last week to Highland Park, Illinois, where a man armed with a semi-automatic rifle opened fire on a Fourth of July parade, killing 7 and injuring 46.

“When you meet with first responders, when you meet with families of these victims, you cannot avoid the reality of what the impact of this gun violence is on a community,” the vice president said.

And that wasn’t all:

Harris said mass shootings keep happening across the country “because those weapons are available, and we have to stop allowing those weapons to be available to civilians living in communities of people who have a right to believe that they are not in a war zone.”

Experts have long warned that such a ban could lead to a massive glut of bloodshed, however, as the enforcement mechanism for such a rule would require firearm confiscation – something that will not likely be a peaceful proposition.
