Kamala Harris Promises to Ban AR-15 Imports

Politico reports that Harris wants to prevent of import of “AR-15-style assault weapon imports and suspend all other assault weapon imports until the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives can analyze whether they should be permanently banned under U.S. law.”


Doesn't realize that virtually all AR-15s are US-made and that we already did that for the import of other assault weapons.

Quote

In 1989, the George H. W. Bush administration had banned the importation of foreign-made, semiautomatic rifles deemed not to have "a legitimate sporting use." It did not affect similar but domestically-manufactured rifles. (The Gun Control Act of 1968 gives discretion to the Attorney General of the United States to choose whether to "authorize a firearm or ammunition to be imported or brought into the United States," under what is known as "the sporting purposes test.") Following the enactment of the Federal Assault Weapons Ban, the ATF determined that "certain semiautomatic assault rifles could no longer be imported even though they were permitted to be imported under the 1989 'sporting purposes test' because they had been modified to remove all of their military features other than the ability to accept a detachable magazine" and so in April 1998, it "prohibited the importation of 56 such rifles, determining that they did not meet the 'sporting purposes test.'"

And doesn't understand that the "Assault Weapons Ban" resulted in the unintended consequence of triggering a HUGE boom in awareness and use of the AR-15 and similar weapons and manufacturers producing them and related components.

Libtardz don't care that the previous AWB had zero effects on crime rates, or the fact that handguns are used in 100x the amount of crimes. It's never been about gun control, the end goal is people control. If you don't understand why letting them get away with it is a bad thing, you should just move to Venezuela or North Korea now to see what their goal is.

When these California democraps get their own state cleaned up and under budget, then maybe I will consider their ideas. But as it stands, the only thing they are capable of accomplishing is turning the entire country into the shithole that California has become.

Harris knows that they are mostly made domestically, but her base doesn't.
