Hypocrite: Kamala Harris gets protection with weapons she wants to ban YOU from having

Kamala Harris has stated she wants to ban AR-15 style “assault weapons.”

Joe Biden’s web site states he will enact legislation to once again ban assault weapons.

And because Kamala is a typical, hypocritical demorat, she’s entitled to protection by the weapons she wants to ban YOU from owning.

The Daily Mail reported that while Kamala was in Miami recently she was guarded by a Secret Service officer armed with an assault weapon – the same type of gun she vowed to ban. More:

“There was also a heavy police presence guarding the venue where Harris spoke, with at least two dozen officers protecting the Democrat who supports defunding the police and reallocating funds to community organizations and educational opportunities.

Harris has supported redistributing police funding, saying in June, ‘For far too long the status quo thinking has been to believe that by putting more police on the street you’re going to have more safety. And that’s just wrong, that’s not how it works.”

Protester says ban assault weapons, including “any gun that isn’t a pistol”

A reminder from a couple years ago of the major STUPIDITY coming from those who know NOTHING about firearms.

Skip ahead to the 1:36 mark to hear one protestor’s brilliant solution.

I can’t even with these people…

Washington State gun control laws designed to punish law-abiding citizens

Demorats’ gun control laws are conduits to achieving their utopia: Removing firearms from law-abiding citizens.

Washington State (run by demorats) has implemented numerous gun control laws that have had no effect on criminal behaviors.

Earlier this month the Seattle Police Department (SPD) released its annual report on gun violence, and statistics show the number of shootings in 2019 is up from 2018. One of the causes is an increase in gang-related violence.

Instead of addressing the root cause of gun violence, Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson believes part of the solution is to ban “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines.

Proof that demorats only want to control legal firearms is the fact that known criminals are routinely set free to terrorize tax-paying citizens. There is a severe lack of proper punishment for criminals due to – in my opinion – social justice warriors’ desire for “criminal justice reform.”

Look at what happened in Seattle this week: Three shootings where one person was killed. The majority injured happened at a shooting on Tuesday in downtown Seattle in broad daylight (7 injured, the 1 killed).

Guess who the perps were? “KNOWN GANG MEMBERS.”

MyNorthwest.com has more details about these KNOWN perps:

“KIRO 7’s Amy Clancy reports that police are searching for a pair of 24-year-old male suspects who are both “known to SPD,” according to a source in law enforcement.

Clancy went on to note that court documents reveal both suspects are “‘documented gang members’ with extensive criminal histories.” Those documents detail multiple arrests for robbery, theft, and false statements to a public servant among other charges, for one suspect, while the other had been “booked 11 times since 2014” for theft, domestic violence, a DUI, and violating a no contact order.”

MyNorthwest.com reports that 45 police units were dispatched to the scene at the time of the shooting.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best said to expect a strong police present in the area “until further notice.”

Until further notice you can expect that since the criminal justice system does not adequately punish criminals, they will not follow any gun control laws.

And until further notice, you can expect that demorats will continue in their efforts to strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment right.

“Republican” mayor calls for his city to ban assault weapons because “my prayers aren’t working”

RINO George Cretekos

Mayor of Clearwater, Florida – George Cretekos – ain’t no republican, despite what this story states.

The proof? Just look at his Twitter timeline and some of his tweets and who he retweets:

Retweet of Paul Krugman: “I was warning about escalation, but things moving faster than I expected”

Retweet of Garry Kasparo (who promotes Renew Democracy in his Twitter bio): “As in Helsinki, Trump’s demeanor around Putin is that of a loyal dog afraid of being whipped. Joking with a dictator about his proven attacks on US elections is pathetic”

Retweet of Bill Kristol: “Excellent from @DavidAFrench at @NRO: “’Where is the outrage?’ The same question applies today, but to a different audience. The lies are simply too much to bear. No Republican should tolerate such dishonesty.” (Regarding Mueller report)

Retweet of Politico: “Opinion: Trump’s national emergency is great news for future President Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Cretekos a republican? Yeah, riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

From Yahoo: The Republican mayor of a Florida city is calling on Congress to take action on strong gun control measures, saying that thoughts and prayers just aren’t cutting it when it comes to America’s gun violence epidemic.

George Cretekos urged his fellow city council members in Clearwater to pass a resolution which would represent a potent message in a state known for its fidelity to the National Rifle Association.

“I’ve gone to church, I’ve prayed,” Mr. Cretekos said this week, referencing a common refrain after mass shootings in which politicians offer “thoughts and prayers” for victims, but stop short of taking any practical measures to prevent future shootings.

“My prayers aren’t working,” he continued, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Florida state law prohibits cities from enacting their own firearms regulations, but Mr. Cretekos’s resolution would send a symbolic message to Congress that it should move to ban assault-style weapons and high capacity magazines, to pass a national “red flag” law, and to expand background checks so they can cover private sales.

“In the past, council and I have stayed away from national issues,” Mr. Cretenkos said. “But I think this issue is something that we need to consider to let people know where we stand as a community to encourage safety.”

Florida is the state in which two of the most deadly mass shootings in recent years have occurred, having drawn national attention after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, and at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

Seventeen people were killed in Parkland by an expelled former student in February 2018, while 49 people were killed and more than 50 wounded at the Pulse nightclub in June 2016.

Mr. Cretenkos’s call for action is significant not only because of the state he lives in, though, but also because of his standing as a Republican.

In the past, Republican leaders and politicians in Washington including Donald Trump have reacted to shootings by proposing modest gun control measures, but have yet to make good on those promises.

The good mayor’s call for an assault weapons ban was shot down:

“The City Council on Thursday approved a resolution that called on Congress to pass modest gun control measures, but failed to go as far as Mayor George Cretekos had proposed earlier in the week.

In a compromise, the five-person council, which includes Cretekos, voted 3-2 to pass a resolution calling for the red flag law expansion and the stricter background checks. But the resolution was softer on the weapons and magazines. Instead of calling for a ban, it called for a “review of laws governing the accessibility of high-capacity ammunition magazines and military-style assault weapons.”

Presidential candidate Cory Booker proposes national gun license for all gun owners

How is Spartacus going to ensure that criminals comply with this fantasy?

From Yahoo: Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker is proposing that all gun owners be licensed by the federal government, a process that would include an interview and safety training.

National licensing is one of more than a dozen specific proposals in a sweeping gun control agenda the U.S. senator from New Jersey released on Monday. It’s his second policy rollout in three weeks as he tries to break through the crowded Democratic primary field .

While current gun owners and first-time buyers would be subject to the federal license requirement, a transition period would allow current owners to come into compliance, the Booker campaign said.

No such national gun license program currently exists. Thirteen states and the District of Columbia have enacted some form of licensing or permit rules before people can buy guns, according to the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.

“I am sick and tired of hearing thoughts and prayers for the communities that have been shattered by gun violence — it is time for bold action,” Booker said in a statement.

Last month during a high-profile speech in his hometown of Newark, Booker vowed to “bring a fight” to the National Rifle Association, which generally opposes gun restrictions.

Booker, a former mayor of Newark, New Jersey’s largest city, said gun violence is an issue close to him, with several people being shot in his neighborhood recently.”We must step up and deal with something that is crushing communities, destroying lives and really just tearing apart families,” Booker said in an interview on CBS’ “CBS This Morning.”

Booker’s gun control agenda includes universal background checks for gun buyers; the reinstitution of a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity firearm magazines; and the modernization of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The plan would face a steep climb to winning approval from a Democratic House and would face even stiffer resistance in a Republican-controlled Senate, where less-sweeping gun control measures have failed in recent years.

President Donald Trump has said the constitutional right to bear arms is “under assault.” Trump, a Republican, spoke at the NRA’s annual convention last month, vowing to fight for gun rights and imploring NRA members to rally behind his reelection bid.

Booker, who launched his presidential campaign in February, has struggled to rise from the low single digits in polls of the 21-candidate Democratic primary field, though he recently secured the 65,000 donors necessary to meet both qualifications for participation in next month’s first debate .
