Kamala Harris may have made a splash when she entered the 2020 presidential race bright and early, but the ripples of her past are now crashing ashore.
Harris is one of 18 democrats in a crowded field for the 2020 race, with the winner set to presumably take on incumbent President Trump come next November. Of all the candidates so far, except maybe probable candidate Joe Biden, Harris has the most trouble connecting with an ever-progressive liberal base.
Harris’ work as a cutthroat prosecutor has been part and parcel to her maladies, as her former career placed the candidate in the unenviable position of thrusting a great many offenders into the legal system, often controversially.
Furthermore, her blatant fabrication regarding her time spent listening to rap music and “smoking weed” in her dorm room further indicated how out-of-touch Harris is with the culture of the left.
Is Biden's Vaccine Mandate Unconstitutional?
Now, in a move that hardline progressives will be discussing for weeks to come, Harris has been forced to defend her gun ownership.
Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris says she owns a gun and called it a “false choice” that the only two gun control options are complete, unrestricted access or a desire to seize everyone’s guns.
The senator from California told reporters after a campaign event in Iowa that she is a gun owner. She says, “I own a gun for probably the reason that a lot of people do: for personal safety.”
Harris’ softer view on the Second Amendment will undoubtedly become fodder for the glut of 2020 candidates, many of whom have been staunch anti-gun legislators or leaders for decades.
