Ulvade Shooting: Kamala Harris Calls For Assault Weapons Ban

- Advertisement -

US Vice-President Kamala Harris has made an impassioned plea for a ban on assault weapons in the wake of two deadly mass shootings in the US.

Ms Harris was attending the funeral of Ruth Whitfield, 86, killed in a supermarket in Buffalo on 14 May.

That shooting came just 10 days before an attack on a Texas primary school left 19 children and two teachers dead.

Ms Harris, listing these and other attacks, said it was time to say “enough is enough” to gun violence.

“Everybody’s got to stand up and agree that this should not be happening in our country and that we should have the courage to do something about it,” she told the congregants at the funeral.

She added that the solution was clear – and included things like background checks and an assault weapons ban.

“Do you know what an assault weapon is?” she asked, continuing: “It was designed for a specific purpose: to kill a lot of human beings quickly. An assault weapon is a weapon of war, with no place, no place in a civil society.”

  1. This statement is so predictable. This has been the plan all along to call for weapons ban so people won’t be able to defend themselves and their properties in the coming unstable times. This was planned all along.

  2. Every weapon is used to kill. Are you going to ban cars as well? They can run over untold number of people in a short time. Fix the people, the weapon goes away. The right to bear arms is enshrined in the constitution for a reason. To give the people a means to protect themselves from tyranny.

  3. This article expresses, quite vividly, the gross hypocrisy and utter lack of self-awareness by Harris! Taken with another article on the Buffalo mass murder in this news aggregation website, titled, “Buffalo Shooting: ‘Bodies Were Everywhere’”, from the BBC News, we get a clear picture of why black people in St. Lucia & around the globe have been conned into expressing support for Nazis in Ukraine; conned into believing that Russia (and in particularly, Putin) is the reason for our current economic & social woes.

    It is but a small step in redressing the constant propaganda from western media, which is relayed by the St. Lucia Times to the majority naive sensibilities of St. Lucian citizens, without the full context necessary to understand our world today.

  4. I fed up hearing this BS. All other countries should ban US citizens from traveling to there’s. When that can happen collectively then we can say who is boss. Let that happen in any 3rd world countries see who’s visa would have been revoked!
