Kamala Harris insists ‘weapon of war with no place in a civil society’ must be banned

Vice President Kamala Harris traveled to New York Saturday to attend the funeral of a victim of the May 14 Buffalo shooting where she continued the shameless politicization of recent tragedies and contended she knows what’s best “in a civil society.”

Ruth Whitfield, 86, was one of the victims at a Tops Friendly Markets store where an 18-year-old suspect was charged with her murder and the murder of nine other victims. Ten days later, in Uvalde, TX, a different 18-year-old suspect committed a massacre of 19 children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School and it was the bodies of those dead that Harris stood upon when she declared, “Enough is enough.”

“There’s a through line. What happened here in Buffalo, in Texas, in Atlanta, in Orlando, what happened at the synagogues,” the vice president said as she addressed the attendees at Mt. Olive Baptist Church at the behest, according to the White House, of Rev. Al Sharpton.

“And so this is a moment that requires all good people, all God loving people,” she continued, “to stand up and say we will not stand for this. Enough is enough.”

Harris went further on the tarmac standing beside Air Force Two when she stated now was the time for an assault weapons ban. “We are not sitting around waiting to figure out what the solution looks like,” she said. “You know, we’re not looking for a vaccine. We know what works on this. It includes – let’s have an assault weapons ban.”

“You know what an assault weapon is? You know how an assault weapon was designed?” the vice president asked of the made-up classification before not providing an actual definition. “It was designed for a specific purpose – to kill a lot of human beings quickly. An assault weapon is a weapon of war with no place, no place, in a civil society.”

As she lamented the increased number of mass shooting, which is another qualifier that has frequently been redefined, she failed to acknowledge that prior to the initial assault weapons ban of 1994, shooting were already on a steady decline and, according to a Pew Research Center study, they remained on the decline following the expiration of the ban.

She further expressed a lack of comprehension on the topic with a push for background checks, which are already required, “Background checks. Why should anyone be able to buy a weapon that can kill other human beings without at least knowing, hey, has that person committed a violent crime before are they a threat against themselves or others. That’s just reasonable.”

Of course, following the vice president’s logic it would be necessary to have background checks to purchase wide swaths of normal household items like knives and hammers which may also be used as “a weapon that can kill other human beings.”

However, it wouldn’t be a stretch to imagine that’s what she’s after, as her constant push for greater federal powers was laced with socialist undertone limiting the individual identity as less critical than the broader national identity.

“We have to agree that if we are to be strong as a nation, we must stand strong identifying our diversity as our unity. And anyone who is trying to break that down is hurting us a country and as individuals who should identify as one, as a country, as Americans,” Harris said.
