Kamala Harris vows to take executive action on gun control if elected
The New York Post ^ | May 12, 2019 | Nikki Schwab

Sen. Kamala Harris pledged Sunday that she will pursue executive action on gun control measures if Congress fails to act in the first 100 days of her presidential administration.

“I’m proposing, one, that if by my 100th day in office when elected president of the United States, if the United States Congress fails to put a bill on my desk … then I’m prepared to take executive action because that’s what’s needed: action,” Harris, a California Democrat and 2020 hopeful, said in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.

Harris had first articulated the plan at a CNN town hall in late April, but bought it up again Sunday on the heels of yet another school shooting, in which 18-year-old Kendrick Castillo was killed after rushing the gunman to save his classmates.

“We are not waiting on tragedies and we are not waiting on good ideas,” Harris said, pointing to the “heroism of a child who we now mourn his loss, his parents’ only child.”

When asked how she liked Sen. Cory Booker’s (D-N.J.) proposal for a federal gun registry she answered, “I like the idea. But, Jake, I’m going to tell you, on the issue of the need for gun safety laws, we’re not at any loss for good ideas. People have been having good ideas for decades on this issue.”

Booker is also vying for the White House.

Harris said that the country was waiting for Congress to act.

If she was forced to take executive action, Harris said she would require those who sell more than five guns a year to do background checks.

She would also have the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives take away licenses from gun dealers that don’t follow the law.

If elected, I would also take action, e.g. by disarming Congressional security guards to same the level enforced in typical schools, and/or by initiating Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Authority actions against those who press for or enforce such rights deprivations against citizens.

She might as well declare herself emperor for life, abolish Congress, and appoint direct control over the courts.

Yet nobody asks her about the gun violence in inner cities. There was no cries of gun control when the Bloods and Crips were using automatic weapons to slaughter each other.

Never forget how she got where she is: By serving sexual favors to Willie Brown - the corrupt San Francisco mayor who advanced her for free sex... while he was married.

How about an executive order nullifying the Constitution? That’s what she/they really want to do.

So if an EO can take away and over right the 2nd Amendment, can Trump re-instate machine guns ownship to the public?

“We are not waiting on tragedies and we are not waiting on good ideas,” Harris said.


Yes, Headgiver Harris won’t wait... she’s going to create her own tragedies with lots of quick, bad ideas. Starting with this one.
