Sen. Kamala Harris on Monday night pledged that, if elected president, she will sign a series of executive orders on gun control if Congress fails to pass comprehensive legislation in her first 100 days in the Oval Office.During a town hall hosted by CNN, Harris said that if a bill from Congress did not make it to her desk, she would unilaterally mandate background checks for customers purchasing a firearm from any dealer who sells more than five guns a year.
Dealers who violate the law, she said, would have their licenses revoked. The other executive orders would prohibit fugitives from purchasing a firearm or weapon, as well as close the loophole that allows some domestic abusers to purchase a firearm if their victim is an unwedded partner.

She tries to avoid a direct answer as to whether terrorists like the Boston Bomber should be permitted to vote vote Democrat (and you know, they’ll all vote Democrat), but just sounds cowardly, indecisive, and dishonest in her evasions.
She sounds a lot like someone who knows her party’s base is very pro-terrorist, but she worries about declaring her own pro-terrorist sympathies so baldly.
Nice executive orders for laws already passed and assault weapons what ever those are. Another health insurance idea from those that screwed up the system.
Warrens ideas were even more goofy, frees college and forgiveness for student debt.
Ask the college kids in England how that is working out for them from school to the dole. As high taxes and severe regulations have driven away business. Do they get to choose which school they go to? how about choices of careers?
WOW!! Such sweeping, comprehensive reform!! Is she not aware that ANY dealer conducts a background check on EVERY sale? It is already THE LAW.
GOLLY GEE WHIZ GODDAMN!!! ANOTHER home run! Dealers can already lose their license if they do not conduct a background check and how, exactly, will the force a fugitive into filling out paperwork or actually LEGALLY purchasing a weapon?
What is sad is the the vast majority of liberals that have been convinced they want “common sense gun control” are too stupid to be aware of Kamala’s deception. Like the mantra of “IMPEACH!! IMPEACH!!”, this is nothing more than another promise only to be shelved after, hopefully, their election.
I would be very interested to watch her try to undercut the 2nd Amendment with her little pen. She’ll find that not everything can be accomplished from her back.
Gosh just how more stupid can the democrats get Harris would out do Hitler,Stalin and Mao to disarm the People while crinimals would never have to worry about turning in their guns they always get their in black markets It appears like Harris has just like all liberal democrats has forgoten their oath to UPHOLD PROTECT and DEFEND the CONSTITUTION of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA and therefore she must resign
Theoretically, wouldn’t restricting the number of guns in circulation force the prices in that black market upward, maybe even out of the reach of some potential purchasers?
Where are the fact checkers parsing Harris? blamed the Trump admin for removing 500,000 people off he back ground check list, it was the previous admin. They just make shit up or lie.
@Michael: Theoretically, wouldn’t restricting the number of guns in circulation force the criminals to break into more homes to steal guns and get them for free?
One does not need to take seriously anything you write from here on out, as you have frankly admitted to lying in your posts in order to — I don’t even know what — score imaginary points? stick it to the libs? Whatever. You’ve explicitly said that your strategy now is to feign misunderstanding of anything a Lefty writes.
After admitting that lying is your chosen strategy in these discussions, you have no room for complaint.
@Michael: No I did not, I said those were liberal rules. You lie again, we dont need to lie, we just present the truth and you asswipes change the subject, or continue to defend the stupid.
Facts are the areas with the most gun laws have the highest crime and murder as an example, Chicago.
Democrat run cites have the highest poverty, crime, and debt just facts teacher from Beanerfornia.
Democrat policies have been the highest contributor to tearing down fine cities everywhere turning them into literal crime infested shitholes.
You said that they were liberal rules, AND that you were adopting the technique yourself:
“Even if we have to lie about what they say.” That is exactly what you wrote.
Stand behind what you say. Have the courage of your convictions.
I get it, I get it. You hate Mexicans. Edgy!
@Michael: @Michael: Thats your rules, but we dont have to lie, you cant find where I have, no ounce of understanding we will, as liberals do, interpret it as we want to. We own the definitions, language has real meaning, not the ether crap of insanity.
#11 what insanity are you babbling about ?
So you lie well enough that people don’t notice? Maybe that’s a mark of achievement in your circle, but not in mine.
@Michael: Dont change the subject, Harris is ignorant or lied about Trump taking 500K felons off the background check list, which is it?
If a Gun shop sells a gun without a background check they already can lose their license, what would her executive order do? Where do they come up with these loonbag freaks..oh yeah she represents California. The audience clapping for ignorance and empty promises is pathetic at best.
Are you now going to pretend that “beaner” is your term of endearment for Mexicans?
Neither. Yes, Obama planned it, but it was implemented by Trump in February 2017. He didn’t have to do it if he didn’t want to.
@Michael: I wouldnt know, what it is a term for, I guess you do, I was scanning the news and saw the Gov of your shithole didnt like it.
I know several Americans that legally immigrated from Mexico, my nephew married one of them they now have 2 super cute kids, we went to PR with them had a wonderful time. Another is my daughter BFF she moved back to Texas to help care for her grandma my grandkids call her Tia. I dont much care for illegal border invaders and nor do the immigrant Americans I know.
I do know “wetbacks” is an unpleasant term, I heard Tia Claudia use it.
Obvious, pointless lie.
Yes. I know that “Beaner” is a derogatory term for Latinos — especially Mexicans.
That’s your reasoning for using a racial slur? Can’t stoop too low to stick it to the libs, I guess.
@Michael: When did Mexican become a race?
Comfy down that rabbithole of projection?
Is Harris ignorant or a liar lets stay with the subject.
Is that what has worked so well in Chicago?
I prefer Wetbackistan.
Mexican is not a race. Neither is Latin.
@kitt: This is how much liberals care about gun control; they would rather nitpick words than discuss the facts.
I specifically addressed that:
Slow down there! I’m not the one using racial slurs — that’s you.
I also specifically addressed that:
@Michael: He was sworn in for 1 month or less, and was it his appointee in place at that time, if he was was he informed? Trump had to rehab the White House after years of neglect, he certainly could not bring his beautiful wife and son in somewhere allowed to get so run down and infested with vermin.
No a simple ignorant or liar would do.
The job begins on day 1. Of course, Trump immediately took a few days off.
It doesn’t matter. It went into effect in February of 2017 — on Trump’s watch. He could have stopped it, or he could have reversed it, as he did so many Obama decisions. He did neither.
You don’t get to set the terms of the discussion. Neither one of those options is the correct one, so why would I choose either? It was proposed by Obama and implemented by Trump.
@Michael: Either she knew the decision was made under the previous admin or was lying. No need to complicate it in your pea brain. The decision was already made by Barrys boys finding all the garbage left behind was quite a task.
According to the FBI General Flynn was in violation of the logan act in December, when they were spying on the incoming administration.
She is just ignorant just like other California reps Mad Max who didnt know the government took over student loans in 2010, and Sen Spystein and her China connection.
I get it, I get it. You hate Mexicans. Edgy!
Not to put too fine a point on it, but it would seem that the peabrain in this situation is the one who can’t deal with an ever-so-slightly complicated thought. Implemented by Trump in February of 2017.
Oh. So you view ALL MEXICANS as wetbacks. Some immigrate here legally, you know; they aren’t ALL illegal, as you appear to believe, lumping them ALL into one prejudiced bunch. But, that’s what we’ve come to expect from liberals; they love to use racism as a weapon while none are more racist than they.
Every reference puts the responsibility directly on the Obama administration, he put weapons in the hands of drug cartels, he was doing his best to create a crisis to destroy the rights of lawful peaceful gun owners.
SHe is sick. You are sick, for your lame attempt in defending Harris and her ignorant attempt to shift the blame. There was a hearing about this she knew and is a LIAR.
Its so easy to prove you are ignorant.
Then you should try it some time.
@Deplorable Me: Was that an attempt at argumentational jiu jitsu?
@Michael: Whatever it was, YOU stepped right in it up to your knees. Like it?
@kitt: @Deplorable Me:
Michael is simply partisan, irrational, and just wants his “team” to win. He’s been brainwashed by the lib/dem propaganda machine, and he doesn’t understand just how weak his party is right now, regardless of the spineless prop of the MSM and entertainment.
Trump isn’t perfect. No president is or ever will be. He has been, however, more effective than most. That’s just a fact.
The Dems are in real trouble, because they simply have no viable candidates to run against Trump. If Michael cared, he’d be out there helping his party rather than pretending to win written contests on a conservative blog. He could’t win a real debate if he tried. His delusion will cause real pain when Trump wins in 2020, both the EC and the popular vote. It’s coming, and the shrinking number of Democrat voters just don’t understand…
@Nathan Blue: So desperate is their plight they now pander votes from terrorists and murderers. They make promises that are so outrageous only children in college believe.
That is a sheltered and heavily protected demographic, no conservative speakers allowed on campus. Keep those mushrooms in the dark.
Obama pandered to them in 08, what did they get, faster growing student debt and tuition growing out of pace with inflation.
Here in WI the previous Governor froze tuition hikes.
Our newest Gov, is trying to kill the Foxconn deal, who needs all those high paying jobs and investment, medical science must seek a cure for this mental disorder.
@kitt: Look, nothing would make me more happy than to see the Dem Party come out of this and be what they are supposed to be: the voices left of center. It takes all voices and types to make our country work, and I’d never want to see either the Rep or Dem parties take over.
But the Dems tried, and that’s a true threat to us all. My issue is that their followers truly believe that they are in a war to silence white Christian male straight conservative republican gunowners who are basically evil Nazis. They actually believe this, so anything goes. This kind of crowd hypnosis is so cliche and so well-documented, I just understand how people like Greg and Michael can’t see it, all while having a lot of hubris with the thought they are are somehow smarter than most other people.
Oh, I think he is fully aware of how critically weak his party is. This is why he is so adamant about the non-existent obstruction, clinging to this forlorn hope of Trump’s taxes becoming available and providing some Hail Mary for the party and dream of impeachment for the crime of hurting their butts.
harris got her political position from being on her back and engaging in oral sex-nothing new for a demorat or a demorat president.
@Nathan Blue: Michael has already admitted to be a self hating male of undeserved privilege, Greg he may be a product of MKUltra,
both have been fully immunized to facts, logic and evidence.
Holy crap! Did you actually type that? Sharing to /r/iamverybadass immediately!
@Michael: Are you going to explain why you feel every Hispanic you see is an illegal immigrant?
How do you think Kamala will take it when Michelle Obama waltzes in and takes the Dem nomination?
DNC whispers that this is in the cards.
Never forget, all those Super Delegates are still there.
They just sit on the sidelines for the 1st ballot!
@Nan G: I thought the Democrats wanted to run a woman for President?
@Nan G: Willies Mistress isnt a serious threat.
The dream of Mooch will fade as declassification begins.
@kitt: The sweet thing is that with the investigations already underway, accusations that they are aimed at candidates are moot. Hopefully the DOJ and FBI will not hold back investigation results just because the target of the investigation is a prominent candidate. Anyone involved in the coup should probably just drop out now.
