Kamala Harris wants to export California gun control to the nation writes AWR Hawkins. He writes abridged:
U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., is pushing to export California’s gun control to the rest of the nation. And she is doing it via her efforts to renew the failed federal “assault weapons” ban.
Her push leaves you scratching your head, just recall all the gun control she supported while attorney general of California. After all, it was Harris who pleaded with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit to rehear Peruta v. City of San Diego after a three-judge panel struck down California’s “good cause” requirement for issuing concealed-carry permits.
Think about it—guns are not only legal but constitutional. They differ from other products insomuch as the right to keep and bear them is protected by the Second Amendment. Yet Harris fought to be sure store owners who sold guns could not advertise those guns in a way that the outside world could see (which kind of defeats the point of advertising).
With these things understood, it is easier to see that Harris’ current push for an “assault weapons” ban did not emerge out of vacuum. It is but one of many gun control schemes she supported in California and continues to support even now, as a sitting U.S. senator.
