“Congress needs to have the courage to act and renew the assault weapons ban.”
In the wake of every shooting, Democrats offer the same solution of taking away the rights of the people who didn’t do it.
That’s just what Vice President Kamala Harris did in Chicago yesterday.
Haisten Willis reports at the Washington Examiner:
Kamala Harris calls for ‘assault weapons’ ban in Chicago speech
Vice President Kamala Harris called for an “assault weapons” ban and an end to the “liability shield” for gun manufacturers in a Tuesday evening speech to a teachers union.
Speaking in Chicago, just miles from where the July Fourth Highland Park shooting took place, Harris drew loud cheers for calling on Congress to ban such guns, “assault weapons” meaning semi-automatic rifles, as they did in 1994.
“We have made some progress. For the first time in 30 years, our president, Joe Biden, signed a federal gun safety bill,” she said. “And it strengthens background checks, and it closes what we call the boyfriend loophole, and it includes funding for mental health services and school security. But we have more to do. We have more to do. And Congress needs to have the courage to act and renew the assault weapons ban.”
The ban from the 1994 bill lapsed in 2004 and has not been renewed.
Of course, no Kamala Harris appearance would be complete without a word salad:

Despite Harris’ recommendation, gun sales in the U.S. are showing no signs of slowing down:
