Sen. Kamala Harris on Wednesday announced that, if she is elected president, she will ban the importation of all AR-15 style assault weapons by executive action if Congress fails to act in the first 100 days of her administration.

Harris made the announcement at a campaign stop in New Hampshire. “Assault weapons are designed to kill a lot of people in a very short period of time,” Harris said.

“I think that this has got to be something that is understood, that we cannot any longer afford to allow people to make this a partisan issue,” Harris added. “Those guns, those assault weapons, do not discriminate and determine, ‘OK, is the person pointing it at, is it a Democrat or Republican.’ “

Harris’ proposal is the latest in a series of gun-related executive actions she has promised to take if she wins the Democratic nomination and defeats Donald Trump in 2020. Previously, Harris had said she’d use presidential executive action to mandate near-universal background checks, revoke licenses of gun dealers who break the law, limit fugitives with outstanding arrest warrants from buying guns and close the so-called “boyfriend loophole.”

Harris’ new proposal “would ban AR-15-style assault weapon imports because they are not ‘suitable for or readily adaptable to sporting purposes.’ Additionally, the Harris proposal would have the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives suspend all assault weapons imports until the agency studies and determines admissibility under the “sporting purpose” test, said the Harris official.

  1. Your Executive Action would be unconstitutional; therefore, null and void. (Where did you get your so-called law degree?)

    The Bill of Rights was established after much argument by The Founders, many stating that The Rights were inherent in the U.S. Constitution. Those who demanded The Bill of Rights wanted to ensure that there was no misunderstandings and interpretations that could establish doubt. The Bill of Rights (note RIGHTS and not PRIVILEGES) are an insurance policy protecting The Rights given to each by his/her Creator. The 2nd Amendment does not CONVEY anything (i.e. A Right). Take away any insurance policy and it does not destroy the underlying asset. Take away the 2nd Amendment and the RIGHT still exists.

    1. Is it unconstitutional to ban imports of anything? That’s all this article mentions is banning imports.

  2. Ok Dems go for it, but you think there was a revolt in 1776 try it. There will be one of the biggest revolutions this country’s ever seen The second amendment was a clause put in to keep people like you from taking over the country and imposing your will on the people of this land We are able to think for ourselves

  3. I was actually addressing all the Progressive Gun Grabbers – including Booker who said HE would abolish The 2nd Amendment, for example.

  4. You go do what you think you can. A long time ago when Britain tried telling us what we could or couldn’t do. Well the free people decided that WeThePeople have had enough of people like you and your party.
    You want a revolution it will be one like you’ve never seen Oh I forgot the Democrat Swallow says he’ll use nukes on us and make a short war Now we know who the real terrorist are in this country

  5. Such a play and twist of words. Why not just say the ban of AK style weapons and that would make sense since they are imported (not that they should be banned), but no she wants to make a point that AR weapons are evil and should be banned even though they are not imported. Such twisted logic.

  6. Let’s put all these “please save us by taking away our freedom people” on a deserted island with an active volcano. Time to round them up.

  7. Banning socialists and anyone who supports them would do this country far more justice than banning firearms.
    It is the left side of the political spectrum that has produced 98.4% of mass shooters in this country.

  8. We know you screwed your way to the positions you got.
    Don’t try screwing the law abiding citizens of the U.S.A.

  9. Better plan, Ban this whack Harris from this country, and ride her outta town on that proverbial tarred and feathered rail! Need to round up ALL those anti-American whackadoodledoo people(?) that elected one of their own into those vaunted halls of the Federal government, and ship them all OUT together!!

  10. In this day and age when one can mill out their own lower receiver and do it legally, it is obvious she is way behind on any understanding of American firearm ownership.
