Kamala Harris Pushes Gun Control Following Jacksonville Shooting

After the shooting on Saturday in Jacksonville, Florida, Vice President Kamala Harris advocated for gun reform, yet this would not have stopped the attack.

Harris said in a statement on Sunday that there would be an investigation into whether the shooting was racially motivated. She said the investigation will see it “as a possible hate crime and act of domestic violent extremism.”

She ended her statement by saying, “Every person in every community in America should have the freedom to live safe from gun violence. And Congress must help secure that freedom by banning assault weapons and passing other commonsense gun safety legislation.”

It should be noted that the shooter was equipped with a Glock handgun and an AR-15-style rifle, as mentioned by Jacksonville Sheriff T.K. Waters. He would still have had the pistol if the rifle had been taken away from him, thus the attack would not have been impeded.

Additionally, universal background checks constitute another piece of “commonsense gun safety legislation” that Democrats are trying to push. Yet, the Jacksonville shooter purchased his weapons “legally,” which means he cleared background checks to purchase them from a retailer.

Also, Florida has a red flag statute, which Democrats frequently promote as a strategy to stop shootings. However, the Washington Post mentioned Waters saying, “There was no criminal arrest history. There is nothing we could have done to stop [the shooting suspect] from owning a rifle or a handgun. There were no red flags.”
