Everything You Need to Know About Kamala Harris’s Anti-Gun Record

Tuesday, November 3rd is the day we find out whether a Joe Biden – Kamala Harris administration will take control of the White House in January or if Donald Trump will retain the Presidency.

As the campaign comes to a head, all eyes are on Joe Biden, and if he has the stamina to remain president, or even take office if elected.

Should Biden relinquish the reins of power after prevailing this week, his running-mate and ex-Presidential candidate, Kamala Harris, has been no stranger to infringing on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans throughout her career. Here’s what every gun owner should know.

Beginning in 1990, Harris began her career as a deputy district attorney and moved her way up to becoming the District Attorney of San Francisco in 2004, where she essentially began her assault on gun owners. In that campaign, she attacked her opponent for “not doing enough on the city’s gun violence.”

After successfully winning her election to become the District Attorney of San Francisco, Kamala Harris endorsed legislation in 2007 to ban gun shows at the Cow Palace Arena and Event Center, a prominent entertainment venue that staged one of the nation’s largest gun shows. Harris agreed with the legislation, claiming the gun shows proliferated the use of illegal guns and illegal firearms sales, even though dealers complied with all state laws and regulations.

Less than a year later, Harris signed onto an amicus curiae brief of the landmark Columbia v. Heller case in the Supreme Court. The brief argued the Second Amendment does not protect an individual right to keep and bear arms, further advancing her ideology against gun ownership.

Additionally, she won the title of California’s Attorney General in 2011, with the endorsements from two of the most anti-gun politicians: U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). During her tenure as the Golden State’s Attorney General, Harris oversaw operations at the state’s Department of Justice, which led the nation’s largest gun confiscation squads. These “squads” had one mission: to seize lawfully-owned firearms without giving the defendant their day in court, completely disregarding due process laws.

At the same time, the Harris’ DOJ launched undercover operations against Second Amendment supporters by steaking-out gun shows in neighboring and spying on legal purchases made by California residents.

Following her stint as a career prosecutor in California, a vacancy in the U.S. Senate prompted Kamala Harris to run and fill the vacant seat. Endorsements were endless from then-President Barack Obama, California Governor Jerry Brown, and now-running mate Joe Biden.

Wasting no time after winning the election to California’s open U.S. Senate seat, Kamala Harris co-sponsored numerous gun control bills, such as:

S. 66 – Assault Weapons Ban of 2019  This bill makes it a crime to knowingly import, sell, manufacture, transfer, or possess a semiautomatic weapon or large capacity ammunition feeding device, or otherwise known as standard capacity magazines.

H.R. 8 – Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019 – This bill establishes new background check requirements for firearm transfers between private parties. For example, in 28 states in the United States, you are allowed to sell a firearm to another individual without having to fill out an ATF Form 4473, aka a background check. H.R. 8 would ban private sales nationwide.

While her tenure on the U.S. Senate is relatively short, throughout her career, Kamala Harris has made it known that she vehemently opposes pro-gun policies. In fact, during her failed run for President this year, Harris echoed her own calls to allow Congress 100 days to enact gun control legislation. If Congress failed to do so, she would enact the legislation herself in the form of an Executive Order. Not even Barack Obama or Bill Clinton, two of the most well-known anti-gun Presidents, have used executive fiat to enact gun control.

Another idea perpetuated by the failed Harris Presidential campaign was to abolish the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA). This law was passed in order to protect manufacturers and retailers in the firearms industry from lawsuits for crimes committed by individuals who bought their product. Ending the PLCAA would allow victims of mass shootings to pursue litigation against an arms maker because an evil individual used their product to carry out a crime.

Even as her Presidential bid did not pan out, Joe Biden chose Kamala Harris to be his running mate for the 2020 Presidential election, further adding to the threat gun owners face in November. Again, the opportunities for a Biden-Harris administration are endless when it comes to gun control, in fact, all of their proposals are laid out online.

Here’s what the Presidential hopeful and Kamala Harris are campaigning on:

Ending the PLCAA – As stated in this article, this would allow victims to sue gun manufacturers for a crime someone committed with their product.

Ending essential “Stand Your Ground” Laws – These laws enacted at the state level removes the duty to retreat in the event a person feels their life is threatened or is in danger of serious bodily injury.

Enacting a more robust ban on “Assault Weapons”  Using the 1994 law as the framework, this would ban semi-automatic rifles, shotguns, and even handguns based on cosmetic features, while also getting rid of the 10-year sunset provision.

Enacting “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation laws – These laws have been becoming more popular at the state level, essentially allowing police or federal agents to seize lawfully-owned firearms without a court hearing, bypassing all due processes.

Make no mistake about it, a Biden-Harris administration will be detrimental to gun owners and gun rights supporters all around the country. Not to mention, with Kamala Harris as the Vice President, she is essentially one heartbeat away from Presidency.
