Kamala Harris: I Will Take Executive Action On Gun Control And Allow 16-Year-Olds To Vote

Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris offered a glimpse of what a Harris administration could look like during a CNN town hall on Monday evening.

The glimpse, however brief, was frightening for gun owners and law-abiding gun merchants as Harris said she would use her office to push for “reasonable gun safety laws” within the first 100 days. Further, she would utilize an executive order to place a requirement on gun sellers with the punishment forcing the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives to “take their license.”

“Upon being elected I will give the United States Congress 100 days to get their act together and have the courage to pass reasonable gun safety laws. And if they fail to do it, then I will take executive action,” Harris said
via BizPac Review.

She continued: “And specifically what I will do is put in place a requirement that for anyone who sells more than five guns a year, they are required to do background checks when they sell those guns. I will require that for any gun dealer that breaks the law the ATF take their license.”

The rest of the town hall was similarly controversial as the senator suggested lowing the voting age to 16 and said she would discuss allowing the notorious Boston bomber to vote from his prison cell.

Check it out via BizPac Review:

The evidence suggests that additional gun laws would not stop school shootings.  Empowering teachers and school security officials with weapons of their own might, on the other hand.

Second, the California senator shared her support for a dangerous proposal to lower the voting age to 16. According to science, the human brain doesn’t stop developing until the age of 25. Ergo, someone who believes in science might reasonably try to argue that the voting age should be raised to 25. What someone who genuinely believes in science wouldn’t do is argue that it should be lowered to 16. Yet that’s exactly what a majority of Democrats, including Harris, seek.

“I think that there is no question that, if we are looking at what is going on in our country, we’re putting more responsibilities on people at a younger age, and the larger number of people we can involve in the electoral process, I think the more robust it would be,” Harris said of allowing 16-year-olds to vote.

“I think one of the downsides of the way our system is currently constructed … is that if people don’t vote or they don’t write checks, they don’t get heard,” she continued. “And I believe strongly that you can judge a society based on how it treats its children. And you can look at what we are not doing for our students, for our teenagers and for even younger, and I believe that if they had greater political power, maybe we would get our act together a little bit better than we’ve been doing.”

And, via BizPac Review:

Last but not least, the 2020 hopeful said it’s an opportune time for America to have a conversation about allowing incarcerated convicts to vote in America’s elections.

She issued the surprising declaration when asked by moderator Don Lemon about fellow presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders’ proposal to let everybody vote, including even the Boston Marathon bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, whose actions in 2013 killed three people and injured 280 others.

“Senator Bernie Sanders said earlier he’s in favor of felons being able to vote while serving in prison. He was asked specifically about people like the Boston Marathon bomber and also people convicted of sexual assault. He said, ‘the right to vote is inherent to our democracy, even for terrible people.’ Do you agree?” Lemon asked.

“I agree the right to vote is one of the key components of citizenship, and it is something people should not be stripped of needlessly,”  Harris replied.

“But, people who are convicted, like the Boston Bomber. They should be able to vote?” Lemon pressed.

“I think we should have that conversation,” she replied.
