The Truth About Kamala Harris and Gun Control


The media will try to soften the narrative that Kamala Harris wants to take your guns, but she has said so herself, multiple times.

National Review explains the games that mainstream media plays to when they ‘fact check’.

Take this USA Today factcheck headlined “Kamala Harris didn’t say she’d send police to take firearms via executive order.” You may notice the highly narrow specificity of this debunking. It’s a little game political media like to play — the Associated Press miraculously ran almost an identical piece on the same day — in which reporters take a hyperbolic backbencher’s comments or a misleading social-media post — in this case, a Facebook post that is “gaining traction” — and use it as a strawman to deceive voters about one of the controversial positions of their favored politician.

 

In this case, the media will take something like "Harris said she will send police to your door to take your guns" and it will be fact checked as "false". The reason? The reason was created and added to the conversation. She may not have explicitly said "police" and "to your door" in those words. That will automatically give them a reason to give a "false" rating.

However, Kamala Harris, has supported a renewal of the '94 Assault Weapons Ban and she has made no bones about taking guns from Americans. At a March for Our Lives rally in 2019, she said just that.

“We have to have a buyback program and I support a mandatory gun buyback program. It’s got to be smart. We’ve got to do it the right way but there are five million [assault weapons] at least, some estimate as many as 10 million, and we’re going to have to have smart public policy that’s about taking those off the streets but doing it the right way.”

As David Harsanyi points out, people aren't walking the streets with their Ar-15s so how do you think they'll recover those guns when a mandatory buy back fails to bring many of them in? They're likely sitting at your home. How will they get them back? Surely the police will be one of the options considered.

I'm sure some police won't participate but that likely depends on where you live.

Don't be fooled, they're not hiding their intentions anymore. You're seeing it play out right in front of your eyes.

  1. Summary of most ‘fact check’ sites:
    LIE about what someone claimed, and them claim what they didn’t claim is false.

    My favorite was when Wendy’s introduced “natural cut fries with sea salt”, and claimed they taste better. A ‘fact check’ site promptly ‘debunked’ the claim they are healthier.
