Dem Presidential Contender Takes Hardline Position on Gun Control

“I think somebody should have required all those members of Congress to go in a room, in a locked room, no press, nobody else, and look at the autopsy photographs of those babies.”She added, “And then you vote your conscience.”

Bearing Arms – Kamala Harris Wants To Use Extreme Measures To Force Gun Control

Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) isn’t someone any of us will mistake for as a gun rights proponent. The extremely progressive California politician has made her liberal bona fides apparent for anyone who cares to look. More than that, now that Sen. Harris has announced her intention to run for president, she’s going to make them even more apparent.

Part of that is a discussion of gun control, but she seems to think that emotion should sway the debate. When it doesn’t, she has other ideas [empahsis mine]:

Harris shamed Congress for not introducing a bill following a 2011 assassination attempt on Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Giffords was shot in the head and 6 innocent bystanders were fatally shot.Harris slammed Giffords colleagues, saying, “The people who work with her every day, who know her — you know, we have colleagues. We know them. We know their children. We break bread. We share holiday moments with them. The people who knew her didn’t act.”

Senator Harris became even more impassioned while discussing the inaction by congress following the 2012 Sandy Hook elementary school shooting that took the lives of 20 children between the ages 6 and 7. She said, “I think somebody should have required all those members of Congress to go in a room, in a locked room, no press, nobody else, and look at the autopsy photographs of those babies.”She added, “And then you vote your conscience.”Senator Harris’s response resonated with many viewers, with one person tweeting “Truly blown away by the answer that Kamala Harris just gave on gun violence.”
