Kamala Harris used a July 13, 2019, tweet to renew her pledge to bypass Congress and enact executive gun control.
Harris tweeted: “Gun violence is the leading cause of death for young Black men in America. We must stop this. When president, I will take executive action to ensure guns do not fall into the wrong hands.”
On April 22, 2019, Breitbart News reported Harris’ plan to give Congress 100 days to pass new gun controls if she wins the White House. Should Congress fail to act, Harris made clear she would simply use executive orders to achieve the gun control she desires.
To date Harris has pledged executive action to require private gun sellers to conduct background checks on their sales, to direct the ATF to take away the license of any gun dealer who breaks the law, and to ban fugitives from buying guns.
Murdering kids at school, youth at universities, parishioners at church and people at music events. That’s become a reality of USA life in 2018. What can we do? Yes there are things we can do.
Yes — there are drugs that can medicate and control violent urges to kill self and other.
No — it’s not realistic to take away 300 million guns from the U.S. population. Take away the guns is the “answer” according to some. That is not realistic. Perhaps making it illegal for gun sellers to sell guns that spit out thousands of bullets — that’s possible.
Yes — a number of states have enacted laws so it’s easy to lock up persons who may harm others or themselves (including California).
Yes — shoot back! That works. There are stun guns and taser guns and a variety of ways to arm persons who can “guard” at public places, e.g., schools, churches, malls and other places where people congregate.
Yes — use modern surveillance cameras, drones and modern technology to watch those with known histories of violent histories. And permit law enforcement to keep track and monitor persons who post violent threats via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
So yes — let’s get real. There are too many young men (so far just men) who choose to kill others.
We must control persons’s with known, long term histories of violent urges via appropriate medication and appropriate incarceration.
Don’t ask for a federal government solution. States must experiment and do what’s right for their citizens.

What does Luke 14:26 have to do with jehadists? We know from the daily news that jehadists suicide bombers hate ….. They their life and the lives of their families enough to kill.
For sure jehadists either have no possessions or are quite willing to sell or give away all possessions as they take their own life and the lives of others. And jehadists have ‘taken up their ‘cross’ to ‘follow’ their religious leader.
What about young USA adults?
What about the young Americans who still live in their parent’s garage, don’t own a car and don’t want to buy stuff.
How about he young USA adults who graduated from college with $60 K debt and don’t have a job to pay off the dept?
Lots and lots of young USA adults supported the Democrat candidate that did not get the nomination — millions of young USA adults supported Bernie Sanders.
And why? For one thing, college debt will be forgiven. And for a second reason, the government will give all of them a “good job” doing some “green type” service to others which will “save the planet”
A lot of young American adults probably do hate living in their parent’s house at age 25.
And many young USA adults do sympathize with Bernie Sanders who was not able to get a job until he was age 40.
