On Thursday, California Democratic Senator Kamala Harris said she owns a gun for “personal safety” and added that she wants to protect the Second Amendment after leading efforts to ban assault weapons.
Business Insider reported that Kamala Harris told this to reporters after she attended a party with supporters in Des Moines, Iowa.
“I am a gun owner, and I own a gun for probably the reason a lot of people do — for personal safety,” she said. “I was a career prosecutor.”
The 2020 election candidate also stated that she believes she can solve gun control issues, mentioning a lack of leadership.
“We are being offered a false choice,” Harris continued. “You’re either in favor of the Second Amendment or you want to take everyone’s guns away. It’s a false choice that is born out of a lack of courage from leaders who must recognize and agree that there are some practical solutions to what is a clear problem in our country.”
Senator Kamala Harris was the attorney general of California 2011-2017 before being elected as a Senate member. Now, she hopes to take on President Trump in the 2020 election, but will have to get through a crowded Democratic primary first.
The California Democrat has previously stated that our country needs a president who knows how to prosecute Donald Trump, citing her former job as state attorney general.
It sure looks like Senator Harris hides behind guns, walls and privilege every day, but want’s to deny them to ordinary American citizen.
