Kamala Harris spoke at the funeral of the oldest victim in the Buffalo grocery store murders on Saturday and used the solemn occasion to decry the American people. And shortly after, she made another gun control pitch.
She was on stage for the funeral of Ruth Whitfield, 86, who was among the thirteen people murdered in cold blood by the sick and evil shooter, who doesn’t deserve to have his name in print here.
Harris was shameless on that stage, taking the opportunity to decry America as full of hatred.
“I cannot even begin to express our collective pain as a nation for what you are feeling in such an extreme way,” she said. “To not only lose someone that you love, but through an act of extreme violence and hate. And I do believe that our nation right now is experiencing the epidemic of hate.”
Later in her remarks she says there’s a “through line” from Buffalo to Uvalde to “what happened at the synagogues,” whatever that means.
After the funeral she was boarding Air Force Two and more division to sow.
“We are not sitting around waiting to figure out what the solution looks like. You know, we’re not looking for a vaccine. We know what works on this. It includes let’s have an assault weapons ban,” she said.
Also she said there have been over “200 mass shootings” this year which, yeah, no. There have not.
“You know what an assault weapon is? You know how an assault weapon was designed? 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,” she said. “Background checks. Why should anyone be able to buy a weapon that can kill other human beings without at least knowing, Hey, has that person committed a violent crime before? Are they a threat against themselves or others? That’s just reasonable. Just reasonable!”
It is not reasonable. It’s not even logical. And it doesn’t and wouldn’t have had any impact on insane evil people committing evil insane acts.
