It didn’t take long for Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media to exploit the two tragic shootings over the weekend in order to push for mass gun control.
But one top 2020 Democratic presidential candidate just unveiled a plan that would completely infringe on the Second Amendment – and her words proved that she wants to rip away the right from American citizens.
While speaking at the AFSCME forum at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., wasted little time after the deadly weekend shootings, to suggest sending police door-to-door to confiscate guns from Americans if she becomes the next president.
For so long, the idea seemed like a myth against Democrats. But Harris is now trying to make this a reality.
When asked if her plan would include a gun-owner database and/or using law enforcement to visit residents who own banned firearms, she said, “I also have as part of my background and experience working on this issue, when I was attorney general [of California], and we put resources into allowing law enforcement to actually knock on the doors of people who were on two lists — a list where they had been found by a court to be a danger to themselves and others.
“They were on a list where they were precluded and prohibited from owning a gun because of a conviction that prohibited that ownership. Those lists were combined and then we sent law enforcement out to take those guns, because, listen, we have to deal with this on all levels, but we have to do this with a sense of urgency,” Harris added.[Sponsored] Man Complaining of Headaches Had Shocking Object Inside His Head
In other words her answer is yes – she is very much open to the idea of using the police to forcibly take weapons away from law-abiding citizens.
Such a move would be nothing short of chaos and would likely create major unrest across the country.
Adding even more fuel to the fire, Harris also tried to exploit the shootings to raise money for her presidential campaign.[Sponsored] URGENT: Get this memory-booster before Big Pharma has it banned
Immediately after news broke about both attacks, Harris sent out an email in which she begged supporters to donate to her 2020 campaign.
In the bottom of her email, viewers saw a massive “DONATE” button, which leads to a page allowing people to give her money.
What’s worse, offering thoughts and prayers after a tragedy, or fundraising off it?

It seems that Harris is the latest 2020 candidate to focus her campaign on gun control.
And she’s proving she’ll even tear down the constitution for votes.
