Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) On The Issues Of Gun Possession & Abortion

Opinion

Warning: Harris’ stance on abortion is, on logical grounds, at loggerheads with her pretentious claim that additional gun control will save lives of babies.

 

New York – -(AmmoLand.com)- Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) has been an outspoken critic of the Second Amendment and a strong proponent of gun control for years.

She has vigorously attacked civilian ownership and possession of modern sporting and self-defense semiautomatic rifles—what antigun zealots pejoratively and erroneously refer to as ‘assault weapons’ and ‘weapons of war’—and has called for an “assault weapons” ban. In fact, she has made pushing an “assault weapons” ban one of her top two legislative priorities. At a town hall, hosted by CNN Anchor, Jake Tapper, on April 4, 2019, Senator Harris stated,

“ ‘There is no reason that in a society we have assault weapons around communities that can kill babies and police officers,” Harris said during her CNN town hall with Jake Tapper. ‘Something like universal background checks. It makes perfect sense that you might want to know before someone can buy a weapon that can kill another human being. You might want to know, have they been convicted of a felony where they committed violence? That’s just reasonable.’”

Note Harris’ reference to “babies” in the above-cited passage. Kamala Harris argues for an outright civilian ban on semiautomatic weapons, ostensibly to protect babies and police officers, but without explaining how an outright ban on semiautomatic weapons would, in fact, protect babies and police officers. Kamala Harris and other Radical Left politicians believe this to be a self-evident truth. It isn’t.

There are, of course, glaring massive holes in Senator Harris’ claim—a bare unsupported assumption—that banning semiautomatic firearms will in and of itself curb the threat to the life of innocent people, most notably, that of infants. But, her absurd assertion isn’t the remarkable point to be addressed at length here.

What is stunning is that Harris’ stance on abortion is, on logical grounds, alone, at loggerheads with her pretentious claim that it is the lives of babies she is most interested in protecting.

She isn’t interested in protecting the lives of babies, not at all. Just take a look at her policy prescription on abortion. If implemented, her abortion policy wouldn’t safeguard babies. Instead, implementation of her abortion policy, nationwide, would result in the lawful massacre of hundreds of thousands and, conceivably, millions of unborn babies a year.

A baby’s death is no less certain whether by knife, ostensibly done lawfully, or by gun, unlawfully. But, Kamala Harris isn’t the least bit troubled by the glaring inconsistency in her policy positions. Since she intends to raise abortion to the level of a fundamental right, she must, of course, insist that abortion be all nice and legal. Harris seems to fail to recognize, though, the apparent contradiction in her policy stances.

She asserts the need to constrain the right of the people to keep and bear arms ostensibly to protect babies, and, yet, asserts, contemporaneously, an unconscionable desire to open the floodgates to wholesale slaughter of innocent babies, through the vehicle of late-term or on-demand abortion.

Whatever protestation Senator Harris might make against the claim that her policy position on guns on the one hand and abortion on the other are not inherently incompatible, the fact remains that, on logical grounds, alone, they are inconsistent. One must come to the irrefutable conclusion that it isn’t an innocent infant’s life that is an abiding concern for Kamala Harris, it’s just the mode employed for ending that life that is of pressing concern to her. Harris isn’t troubled by infant deaths at all. The attempt at dissimulation is both plain and disconcerting and ineffective. Her blatant dishonesty serves to undermine the efficacy of both policy stances.

Kamala Harris will take firearms away from the American citizenry ostensibly to protect the body politic and the life of babies—or, so she says.

It is all just a makeweight, a pretext, to disarm law-abiding citizens, so that tyranny, in the form of a Left-wing Marxist/Socialist autocratic Government, that she envisions, isn’t threatened by a rebellious citizenry. And, Harris will allow abortion on demand, ostensibly to promote a State-created right to do so, dismissing out-of-hand, not merely deemphasizing, the fact that a human life is the regrettable price to be paid for implementation of that State-created right.

Is it just a callous disregard for the life of a human being that drives Harris’ abortion stance, or is it something even more perverse?

With a new population consisting of millions of illegal aliens in the wings—we have an alien population who have no comprehension of and little concern for our Constitution. They have no understanding of and even less concern for the concept of a Bill of Rights consisting of natural, fundamental, and unalienable rights and liberties, and who have no comprehension of and no concern at all for the concepts of personal autonomy and of personal responsibility. Kamala Harris and other Radical Left-wing elements may have seen, in the implementation of the policy of on-demand abortion, a sure-fire recipe for encouraging abortion in the native population. And the importation of a new community not reared on our history and heritage and core values; and one not raised on our system of laws; and one not looking for personal autonomy; and one that does not pride itself on integrity of Self; but, rather, a population that has one objective and need in mind: a society that is looking only for Governmental largess. And, it is that which has driven this alien population to demand entry to our Nation in the first place.

On May 28, 2019, The New York Times reported on Harris’ abortion plan, stating:

“Senator Kamala Harris of California unveiled a plan on Tuesday that would require states and localities with a history of unconstitutionally restricting abortion rights to obtain federal approval before such laws can take effect.

Ms. Harris, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for president, called for what is known as a ‘preclearance requirement’ in the plan, released as numerous states have passed laws to sharply limit abortions.

‘When we look at a law like what’s happening in Alabama and they’re saying they’re going to sentence a doctor to 99 years, as a prosecutor, let me tell you, I got a real problem with that,’ Ms. Harris said on MSNBC on Tuesday night, referring to an Alabama law intended to ban most abortions in the state.

‘We cannot tolerate a perspective that is about going backward and not understanding women have agency, women have value, women have authority to make decisions about their own lives and their own bodies,’ she said.’”

“Going backward,” Oh, really? How many young children died by gunfire last year?

USAToday reports that 73 juveniles, aged 12 or less, died by gunfire in 2018, a figure that has remained essentially constant for the previous five years, according to the newspaper. Compare that figure to unwanted babies that were deliberately killed through abortion.

The website Abort73 reports that, in 2017, over 862,000 abortions were performed in the U.S. Abort 73 further reports that,

“According to the United Nations' 2013 report, only nine countries in the world have a higher reported abortion rate than the United States. They are: Bulgaria, Cuba, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Romania, Russia, Sweden, and Ukraine.”

Obviously, killing babies is not an issue for Harris. It is how babies are killed; that is her sole concern. So it is that, on the subject of firearms, Harris talks about protecting the life of babies. She does so to make a faulty case for gun confiscation. And, on the subject of abortion, no discussion of babies ensues. How can it? The whole point of abortion is taking of a life. So, Harris limits her remarks to a discussion on the purported right of a pregnant woman to kill a life inside her, without talking about that innocent life at all. That life is perceived as a non-entity, nothing more than an unwanted body part. Yet your guns are the real problem?

A Right guaranteed and protected by the Constitution, enshrined hundreds of years ago, she attacks, notwithstanding her oath to uphold and defend that very document!

Yet, a ruling by unelected life time appointees, time frame 1973, which “granted” the massacre of millions of babies, by some accounts even babies who survive such an assault, she supports.

That is the Dems definition of Equal Protection and Due Process!

Presidential, hardly!

All of these democrat posers are trying to circumvent the constitution. Look at what shitty schiff is doing by holding closed door testimonies with only democrats allowed. This illegal drug user, by her own admission, doesn’t even belong in commiefornia let alone in the congress of the United States. If we don’t fight these low life our whole congress will look like her or AOC and her gang.

MY BIG QUESTION IS THIS:

WHEN will someone in some position of power andor respect stand up and TELL Kamelnose Harris that she is NOT ELIGIBLE to be president? BOTH her parents were non-US Citizens at the time of her birth, therefor she is NOT eligible to be president as she is NOT a Natural Born Citizen.

We just got done with another one of those, and don’t need a rerun so soon. Or ever for that matter.

It is very obvious it is ignorance which drives the supporters of more and more restrictive gun laws. Ignorance of reality and history. Studying the facts can and will teach restrictive gun control laws have never worked as desired and they always lead to gun confiscation. History teaches us that. Furthermore, that is also how “over” one hundred and seventy MILLION citizens (possibly more than 260 MILLION) of dozens of countries throughout Europe and Asia were murdered by their own governments during the bloodiest century in mankind’s history the twentieth century. That number does NOT include or count those killed… Read more »

You can also kill a baby with a thumb and a forefinger. That’s a terrible thought, but it exposes the already thinly veiled heart-string-tugging that statement was designed to do. Gun control doesn’t make us safe. Arming the good guys on the other hand, does.

The violation of Due Process by the red flag laws is almost worse than the confiscation. Once Due Process is gone and the guns are confiscated, the government can order pretty much anything…just like in Venezuela. It’s why we MUST keep our guns–all 140,000,000 of us gun owners and 560,000,000 guns. Door to door search and confiscation is a physical and logistical impossibility. If even half of our understaffed police departments were dedicated to confiscation duties, our cities would be destroyed by anarchy. Many are barely surviving even now. And how long do you think it would take for Islamic… Read more »

Caught this one this morning. Last week there was a story about Florida Rad Flags…about 2,000 served thus far, and many to children. Here in WA we are having trouble getting the data, because they are gag ordering them in the name of preserving the people’s identity.

Our education system, the media and both major parties have been infiltrated by communist. The democrat party however, has been influenced considerably more then the republican party has been. Or at least very few republicans have accepted socialism in the form of communism, fascism and or marxism whereas the majority of the so called democrats seem to have accepted socialism completely. Most of the republicans still support free enterprise and our constitution. That is not true regarding the socialist democrats which has turned out to be the democrats base at this time. However, it appears the democrats have no chance… Read more »

She’s a Democrat. She is a bad/evil individual (yes, I repeat myself). The Republicans are slightly better than the Democrats, at least some of them, but that can change overnight, but for now, given our flawed two-party system which Washington and Adams both warned us against, we don’t have much choice but to back the Republicans against the Democrats. My question is: How can anyone with a functioning brain, common sense, a conscience, and even a smidgeon of ethics and morality support anyone who is a Democrat?

The violation of Due Process and other Amendments in ERPO’s is an outright violation of our Constitution and every one of the 2020 communist wanna-bes are openly stating their Oaths they took mean absolute Zero and kowtow to $0r0$ and other elites bent on destroying this country.

The story should be on national news. That is not likely to happen. Every pro-rights reporter should over run that town. Every pro-rights publication and broadcaster should be right on it to get as much dissemination as possible. The same should occur for any and all red flag actions nationwide.

Kamala Harris is so meaningless and insignificant, it is a wonder that a group of stupid people elected her to represent them. The stupidity of these people is beyond reason. California is a lost cause. If it fell into the ocean today, the USA would be better off for it.

The level of stupidity cannot, however, compare to that of those who voted for Killary. In fact, the entire democrat voting population are brain-dead.

It is no longer surprising that stupid–but also evil–politicians get voted in again and again. Consider:
Maxine Waters
Alexandria O Cortez
Nancy Pelosi
Diane Feinstein
Elijah Cummings
Sheila Jackson Lee
Hank Johnson (GA) Concerned that Guam might capsize
Elizabeth Warren
William Jefferson (LA)
Cory Booker (NJ)
Mazie Hirono (HI)
John Lewis

Most of the votes are from low info voters who cast votes based on name recognition. CA voters voted for an anti gun rep even though he had been convicted of gun running. He’s now serving time for it. Remember Marion Berry in DC? convicted of using crack but still was in the race.

Interesting how people can openly support abortion which is a court mandated right and oppose The RTKABA which is a Constitutional Right. Basing their opposition of the 2nd A on how many people are killed. When abortion kills more people in one day than guns kill each year.

The United States is 3rd throughout
the world in gun murders.

If you take out:
#1 Chicago
#2 Detroit
#3 Washington, DC
#4 St. Loius
#5 New Orleans

The United States then moves to 189th
out of the 193 countries in the world.

Those 5 cities all have
strict gun control laws.

One would think the democrats would have enough “common sense” that they always talk about when it comes to gun control laws. Obviously as the whole world can see, the democrats have no, “common sense.”
Anyone voting democrat also shows a complete lack of common sense.

There is a bit of the chicken&egg thing going on in those cities. Desperate people tend to grab at any perceived solution. It is understandable that people living in those hell holes would try anything to attempt to alleviate the gang violence permitting their neighborhoods. Would think by now they would have found the errors I& their ways – but media continues to report successful drug and gun busts in a manner calculated to convince the public that things would be worse without those laws. We are well past time to try something different, but people are trapped and unwilling… Read more »

Is it just me is she saying the innocent have no rights to life, liberty, the pursuit of happyness etc? This idiot is running for president? Fifty years ago she would have been jailed.
