Kamala Harris willing to send cops to your house to confiscate banned firearms
Democrat Kamala Harris recently stated that she would be willing to send police officers to your home to confiscate banned firearms if people owned them and were caught. This statement came when she was talking about gun control proposals after this weekend's shootings in El Paso and Dayton. She was speaking to union members at the AFSCME while at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas.
A representative from the Washington Examiner asked if her plan includes anything about gun confiscation through law enforcement, specifically cops visiting people at their home if it's reported that they are in possession of a banned firearm.
I'm actually prepared to take executive action to put in place rules that improve this situation. “I also have as part of my background and experience working on this issue, when I was attorney general [of California], and we put resources into allowing law enforcement to actually knock on the doors of people who were on two lists — a list where they had been found by a court to be a danger to themselves and others.They were on a list where they were precluded and prohibited from owning a gun because of a conviction that prohibited that ownership. Those lists were combined and then we sent law enforcement out to take those guns, because, listen, we have to deal with this on all levels, but we have to do this with a sense of urgency.
It is unclear what her next move is regarding this, or if it's simply a statement to get people fired up and spark discussion following the recent tragedies.
