In a statement released Sunday, epically incompetent Vice President Kamala Harris reacted to Saturday’s shooting in Jacksonville, Florida, by pushing gun control that would not have prevented the attack.
Kamala noted in the statement that the shooting was racially motivated and will be investigated “as a possible hate crime and act of domestic violent extremism.”
She closed her statement by saying, “Every person in every community in America should have the freedom to live safe from gun violence. And Congress must help secure that freedom by banning assault weapons and passing other commonsense gun safety legislation.”
Breitbart’s AWR Hawkins noted that Jacksonville Sheriff T.K. Waters pointed out the shooter was armed with two guns: a Glock pistol and an AR-15 style rifle. If the rifle had been denied him, he would still have had the pistol and the attack would not be hindered.
Additionally, universal background checks constitute another piece of “commonsense gun safety legislation” that Democrats are pushing. But the Jacksonville shooter bought his guns legally, which indicates he passed background checks for them at retail.
Moreover, Florida has a red flag law, which is often pushed by Democrats as a way to prevent shootings. But the Washington Post quoted Waters as saying, “There was no criminal arrest history. There is nothing we could have done to stop [the shooting suspect] from owning a rifle or a handgun. There were no red flags.”
But of course, the aim of Democrats is not to prevent gun violence but to disarm the populace at large.
