Sen. Kamala Harris: Past Time to Ban Private Ownership of ‘Assault Weapons’
by AWR Hawkins11 Aug 2017

Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) tweeted on Thursday that it is “past time” to ban private ownership of “assault weapons.”
Harris suggested public safety is her motivation, which is strange when one considers that “assault weapons” are used so infrequently by criminals that the FBI reports nearly three times more people are stabbed to death than are killed with rifles (of any kind) and shotguns combined.
The FBI’s 2015 Uniform Crime Report (UCR) showed the number of people killed with rifles (of any kind) and shotguns in 2015 totaled approximately 548. Nearly three times that many, approximately 1,573, were stabbed or hacked to death.
And do not miss the fact that the number of “assault weapon”-related deaths would have been but a fraction of the 548 total deaths from rifles (of any kind) shotguns combined. Yet Sen. Harris is pushing an “assault weapons” ban for the benefit of public safety.

She tweeted:
It’s long past time we renew the assault weapons ban in this country. It is in the best interest of keeping all of us safe.

The United States had a federal “assault weapons” ban from 1994 to 2004 without any noticeable impact on crime. Moreover, it is evident that most Democrats who call for the reimplementation of such a ban do not realize that the ban did not even ban “assault weapons.” Rather, it banned “assault weapons” with certain cosmetic features–i.e., it was all a ruse; another example of the Democrats claiming they did that which they did not do.
Even the New York Times detected this and ran a column explaining that the very term “assault weapons” is a myth the Democrats created in the 1990s.
According to the NYT, the United States was “suffering from a spike in gun crime…in the early 1990s” so “Democrats created and banned [an entire] category of guns.” The ban lasted from 1994 to 2004 and although crime fell during that time, a “detailed study found no proof” the decline was due to the ban.

So she thinks banning a certain group of firearms that are the LEAST used in crimes and which the government admitted had zero effect on crime the last time they were banned nation wide will keep people safe?  :facepalm:

Of course what her tweet really is, is just pushing the same tired failed gun control meme of "scary black things and features" should be banned because we said so.
Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.

"scary black things and features" I agree, they should be banned. Are you talkin about the so-called Senator or something else?

The Liberal's irrational fascination of "Assault Weapons" is amazing.

Well it isn't the "assault weapon" per se it's those scary cosmetic features. We're lucky that the assholes in Hartford and the douche bag c*nt governor have protected us from scary cosmetic features here in Commie-necticut. I for one sleep better knowing our overlords are looking out for me.
I love CT. I've lived here my entire life, it's all the socialists and libtards that I hate.

Harris is the Murphy of the west coast. A one trick pony who is only taken serious by his/her most fringe of the fringe supporters.

If Murphy's only supporters were the fringe of the fringe, he wouldn't still be in office.

What Ms. Harris should be more concerned with is how to control black on black crime in her native Oakland. Known as the crime Capitol of the San Francisco Bay Area. She is an elitist daughter of a doctor and professor couple who should be figuring out how to address crime in her own community that she couldn't do even as a prosecutor.

3 women murdered in grisly hammer attack at NY home

open up a twitter account instead of passing the buck

maybe if enough people did tweet things like this constantly, maybe more people would see it and agree
