On Saturday, Vice President Kamala Harris called for an outright ban on “assault weapons.” The Vice President made the comment after she attended the funeral for the oldest of 10 people killed earlier this month by a mass shooter in Buffalo, New York.
According to The Daily Wire:
“There’s a through line to what happened here in Texas, in Atlanta, in Orlando, what happened at the synagogues … this is a moment that requires all good people who are loving people to just say we will not stand for this. Enough is enough,” Harris said Saturday during the funeral, as flagged by Mediate.
Harris added after the service, “everybody’s got to stand up and agree that this should not be happening in our country.”
“We are not sitting around, waiting to figure out what the solution looks like,” she continued.
“We know what works on this. It includes — let’s have an assault weapons ban,” Harris told the press.
Harris’ comments come just days after another mass shooter killed 19 children and two adults in Uvalde, Texas. The tragedies have reignited America’s ongoing debate about gun control and Second Amendment rights.
