Kamala Harris Will Ban Importation of ‘Assault Weapons’ via Executive Action

2020 presidential hopeful Kamala Harris is doubling down on her campaign promise to deliver gun control via executive action.

Just weeks after the California Democrat said she would go around Congress to implement universal background checks, revoke the licenses of firearms dealers who break the law, close the so-called “boyfriend loophole” and prohibit people with arrest warrants from buying guns, Harris pledged to ban the importation of “assault weapons.” 

“If by my 100th day in office when elected president of the United States, the United States Congress fails to put a bill on my desk to sign with all of the good ideas or any of the good ideas that I’m prepared to take executive action because that’s what’s needed,” Harris told CNN Sunday.

To ban the importation of black rifles Harris would call on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to reassess whether those firearms are “suitable for or readily adaptable to sporting purposes,” Politico reported Wednesday.  

Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich slammed Harris’ anti-gun agenda as an “attack on Second Amendment rights.” 

“She’s not talking about safety measures, she’s not talking about giving law enforcement more ability to prosecute people who are using guns incorrectly, people who are already breaking the law,” said Pavlich.

“Yet we keep hearing this talking point from Democrats like Kamala Harris, that they want to ban this firearm, which is owned by millions of law-abiding Americans,” Pavlich continued. “And so it is an attack on Second Amendment rights, and it doesn’t solve the issue that she claims to be going after.”

Pavlich pointed out that more people are killed each year with fists, clubs and hammers than semi-automatic long guns.     

“Of course people want gun safety, of course people want background checks,” Pavlich said. “But when it comes to actually solving problems, taking away the Second Amendment rights of Americans and claiming that you’re solving a problem … that is going to be a problem for her.”

Bump stock owners know all too well what happens when a sitting president circumvents Congress and forces the ATF to act as a legislative body instead of a regulatory agency to rewrite the law.

Seriously, if an NRA-backed president is willing to sell half a million gun owners down the river, turning them into instant felons over an inconsequential plastic accessory, one can only imagine what Harris, or any Democratic candidate for that matter, would do if given the chance.

The path to weaponizing the ATF has been paved. When Harris says she’s going to rule by fiat — believe her.

    who needs a bump stock when you have a binary trigger?

  • Norm Fishler May 18, 2019, 3:27 pm

    Kamala did her best work under Willie Brown’s desk on her knees. I see no reason she should change her position.

    WTF is this article even about? Evil rifles have been banned from importation for years. Why do you think the 922r US parts count stuff is all about? Bush Sr hit them in 89, then Clinton in 94/98 and that’s why no rifles that look military get imported anymore, other than recent efforts to do them as pistols.

    I don’t even see the statement about imports in the linked CNN articles, so who knows.

    What do you expect from a POS Kalifornicator???

  • Patriot One May 17, 2019, 10:47 am

    And this whole story was written for entertainment purposes..

    This entire web site is Republican version of a Libtard fake news site… 🙁

  • Patriot One May 17, 2019, 10:45 am

    OK, for all the ignorant folks out there that clearly have no idea how “Executive Orders” work…

    I will say this……..

    Kamala Harris “DOES NOT” have the right or power of Executive Order… So just think about that for a moment! 🙂

    • Mike V May 17, 2019, 3:35 pm

      Yeah she doesn’t yet…

  • Randy R May 17, 2019, 10:15 am

    It won’t happen because she’ll have too many other things in her mouth.

    • Richie May 17, 2019, 2:30 pm

      Like BIG Willie brown”

      A disease infested cockholster.

    “Ban Importation of ‘Assault Weapons’ ” Also known as keep America’s firearms industry working act. Obama tried that, and all it did was incentivize people to by more of them, and gun manufacturers to make here what is made over seas.

    They never learn.

  • James Summers May 17, 2019, 9:02 am

    Not even elected and going against oath of office.
    Protect and defend constitution of the United State against all enemies foreign and domestic:
    If she is trying to ban rights then she is the enemy we need to be addressing.
    But yet, Democrats are allowed to attack our rights as enumerated in the Constitution and are allowed to get away a violation of their oath of office.

    Interesting enough, can a right be given, revoked, abridged or regulated ??

  • Matchman May 17, 2019, 8:31 am

    There is no new manafactuer of assault weapons (aka full auto) for public transfur. Foreign or domestic. There also is no longer any import allowed of rifles with miltary style evil features. So maby this highly intelligent future president will make it double not allowed. WTF.

  • Tom May 17, 2019, 8:15 am

    Kamala Harris, Obama 2.0. Just another liberal left wing Marxist wanting to do every thing by executive fiat if they do not get their way. We have already had 8 years of that crap, lady.

    • Jim May 17, 2019, 10:39 am

      G. W. Bush had more than Obama, Trump is on track to almost match them in his first four years when they had eight each. It isn’t just the left.

  • Cyrus May 17, 2019, 8:00 am

    Who the fuck cares if imported AR’s are banned . . . All the good ones are made right here in the Good Ole USA!

    • cs March 12, 2021, 7:20 am

      I don’t know if you’re trying to sound patriotic, but you come across as stupid. There are NO imported AR or AR style rifles. They have been banned import for many years.

  • Jesse H Scott III May 17, 2019, 5:47 am

    Please triple down if necessary. We love it when dems run on the gun ban platform. Helps to cull the herd.

  • SCOTT COUCH May 15, 2019, 5:18 pm

    This won’t happen with Harris because she’ll be cut from the herd early in the race. Additionally bump stocks are pieces of crap anyway. An AR can fire much faster and accurately on semi-auto but, I know what there getting at. Once they take one item away then comes another.

    • Mike V May 15, 2019, 10:21 pm

      I don’t think the idea lives or dies with her candidacy unfortunately.

    • Mark N. May 16, 2019, 1:01 am

      Flushed early is right. What is funny is that after Biden–a centrist by their standards–enters the race, their ratings go through the floor, but instead of figuring out that MOST democrats are not far left wing fanatical Progressives but centrists, they double down on the Progessive/socialist policies that left them lagging behind the herd. Kamala was an early favorite of CNN–but no more.

    • Delco October 10, 2020, 3:16 am

      Biden / Harris are going to try all types of ways to hurt 2A citizens. They are already trying to make it so that Gun manufacturers can be sued. RIDING THE DRAGON DOCUMENTARY. If haven’t seen it watch it. CHINA OWNS Biden, and if you are a true American then DO NOT ALLOW BIDEN/Harris, pelosi, AOC, and the rest get the power. VOTE TRUMP AND MAKE SURE PEOPLE Around you do.
