    People this stupid, shouldn't be making laws

    WASHINGTON — In the week of the two-year anniversary of Charlottesville and the aftermath of mass shootings in El Paso, Kamala Harris Wednesday announced a new executive action she would take as president to require background checks for online gun sales as part of an effort to combat domestic terrorism.

    This is the second time Harris has laid out proposed executive actions on gun control. In April, the California senator said she would give Congress 100 days after she is elected to pass comprehensive gun reform and if they did not, she would take steps to require background checks, close the so-called "boyfriend loophole" and renew the assault weapons ban. This most recent executive action would fall under the same deadline.

    The plan, announced Wednesday afternoon, also includes steps to take on the rise of domestic and white nationalist terrorism. Harris says she would support laws to empower courts to use “Domestic Terrorism Prevention Orders,” to allow law enforcement and family members to petition a federal court to “temporarily restrict a person’s access to guns if they exhibit clear evidence of dangerousness.”

    Harris would also expand the National Counterterrorism Center’s purview to include handling domestic terrorism cases and direct more resources to analyzing and preventing white nationalist terrorism. She would seek Congress’ authority in order to do this.

    Harris’ plan also includes directing the FBI to take “more vigilant steps” in monitoring online platforms where white nationalist rhetoric grows. She says the increased monitoring would put pressure on sites to more closely follow their terms and conditions.

    While Harris does not mention specific websites in her plan, it is worth noting that sites such as 8chan, which have been gathering points for the shooters in recent attacks, are designed in a way so that there are no terms and conditions to begin with. The content is free-flowing and not censored, so it is unclear how Harris plans to take on sites like this in particular.

    Harris also says she would commit $2 billion over ten years to investigate and prosecute domestic terrorism cases. Her plan does not specify where the funding will come from.

    How does this differ from any other presidential candidate with a (D) after their name?

    you purchase a firearm online, it's delivered to a federally licensed Firearms dealer. that's when the background check is done.

    The only creative thing Leftists do is come up with new ways to spend tax dollars that don’t exist. There is no end.

    Will someone mention to her that she will never be president. Unless she sleeps with every male voter that’s willing.

    A very small demographic. I wouldn't go there with your junk (edited to PG)
    I would rather lead a life of celibacy in a trappist monestary than screw with that.

    Okay, bring it. Sit down in front of a computer and order it up. Film it, let’s see you go through the process. Show everyone how your law will work. Instead of just flapping your gums, prove it out. Let’s see it.

    it's just a funny way of saying universal background checks right? meaning 2 adults cant use the internet as a way to facilitate a private sale? bonus points for trying to scare people who dont know how it works

    I buy guns all the time online. High capacity assault rifles, on approved pistols. Saturday night specials. 50bmg.

    Ok, not really. It doesn’t work that way.

    And she knows this. These Democrat a**h***s throw this out there to make Americans that are ignorant of actual gun law think there is a problem when there isn't.

    Yes.....shes fxcking stupid.

    Any lawmaker should know there is a federal, and possibly state background check done at point of transfer to buyer in state, when a gun is sold online from a different state.

    However they put this out there so the average uniformed soccer mom thinks you can just buy a gun online and have it sent to your house. Oh the horror!

    It makes the average uninformed idiot voter think they are doing something.....when a law is already in place...and not really working. We all know laws are only in place to control, they generally cannot stop stupidity and crime from happening.

    But this is the old playbook they resort to when they have people problems they cant solve easily. Their answer is to make more useless laws that give the impression that they are doing something about an issue.
    And in this case they try and double down on stupid and make another law on top of a law that is already in place.

    Therefore as I said, shes f***ing stupid, but its for an agenda of control. Gun control

    She's gotta be a blonde the carpet is not matching the drapes , Her recent polling is showing a 12% drop partially due to the slam from Tulsi Gabbard in the last debate. I'm just stunned that someone who was the AG for CA. doesn't have clue about current fed regs and laws .
