Kamala Harris Owns Gun 'For Personal Safety,' Wants To Ban Assault Weapons


2020 presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris said on Thursday that she owns a gun "for personal safety," and that "smart gun safety laws" need not infringe on the Second Amendment. "I am a gun owner, and I own a gun for probably the reason a lot of people do — for personal safety," she told reporters in Des Moines, Iowa, according to CNN. "I was a career prosecutor." Harris is campaigning on her calls to implement "reasonable gun safety laws," including universal background checks and a ban on assault weapons.

  • Connecticut Will Ban Gun Purchase To Those On 'No-Fly' Lists

    Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said on Thursday that he would sign an executive order to ban gun sales to those on federal terrorism no-fly lists. The Democratic governor said state officials are working with the federal government to get access to the lists. "If you cannot fly due to being on a government watch list, you should not be able to purchase a firearm while on that watch list as well," Malloy told reporters at the Capitol. "This is basic common sense. The American people get it." Permits would be revoked for those who already have them but are found on watch lists. Malloy said those denied a gun permit may be appeal to a firearm review board.

  • Gun Control, Make or Break Issue for 2016 Campaign

    From the stage in Boston’s historic Faneuil Hall last Sunday, Hillary Clinton scanned the balcony, spotted a group of women wearing “Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America” t-shirts over their sweaters, and waved her recognition. Singling out the activists has become a regular occurrence on the campaign trail — a group of the Moms attend the majority of Clinton's town halls and rallies, with a presence large enough to make it hard for the candidate to ignore. Clinton has met with them numerous times privately, where attendees said she has spoken emotionally about her concern for the future safety of her granddaughter, and taken their questions publicly at town halls.
