Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) used the tragedy of the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting to call for gun control back in January, saying that lawmakers would have greed on what to do about gun control following the 2012 massacre of 20 children and six adults if they had been forced into “a locked room, no press, no one, nobody else” and required to examine “the autopsy photographs of those babies.”
“There is no reason why we cannot have reasonable gun safety laws in this country,” she told a CNN Town Hall crowd in Iowa, who cheered and applauded.
Well now the good senator’s position on gun control is coming into focus as we learn she means gun control for people other than herself.
California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris said she owns a gun for “personal safety” Thursday, adding she wants to protect the second amendment after leading efforts to ban assault weapons.
“I am a gun owner, and I own a gun for probably the reason a lot of people do — for personal safety,” Harris told reporters after attending a party with supporters in Des Moines, Iowa, according to Business Insider. “I was a career prosecutor.”
You’re likely reading into that correctly. She packs for personal safety, she says. Because she had a job that demands such a thing. People like her — powerful people — have exerted their power in pursuit of truth and justice so they OF COURSE need firearms to protect themselves.
But you people? What have you possibly done in life — certainly not become a lawyer and prosecuted bad people — to warrant the perks of gun ownership?
But there’s an even deeper message here, and she’s sending it out not to “average” people she might sway to vote for her. No, the more subliminal message is going straight out to the powerful people behind the progressive regime that tends to give Kamala Harris and politicians like her money to stay in the game.
And that message is this: we get the guns, we get the power.
You can see it playing out in Venezuela at this moment, where the people have been disarmed and have tired of their tyrant. They would very much like for him to leave, but they have no power to make it happen except to march in the streets in protest and hope the military (who does have guns) doesn’t decide to shoot them.
They are at the will of generals, which is why the focus has been on convincing those generals to abandon Maduro.
Apparently Harris would like to see the same thing happen here. And she would be playing the role of a general.
