(ConservativeInsider.org) – Gun control has been a hot topic this year given that a Democrat presidency could severely limit the American people’s right to keep and bear arms. This week, Joe Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris continued to push this liberal agenda when she claimed her gun reforms would “keep our children safe.”
On Monday, December 14, Harris tweeted:
Today marks 8 years since 20 first-graders and 6 educators were murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
To honor the lives lost in this terrible tragedy, it’s past time we implement common-sense gun safety reforms to keep our children safe. pic.twitter.com/YmsIWM6dDG

This coincides with former Vice President Joe Biden’s plan for gun control should he take office in January. These “common sense” gun control policies include:
- Banning assault weapons
- Limiting high-capacity magazines
- Prohibiting federal funds from being used to train teachers to use firearms
A Biden administration would proactively try to keep guns out of the hands of educators. However, Harris’ Monday tweet chose to ignore the fact that the Sandy Hook Advisory Commission Report said the violent attacker at Sandy Hook Elementary School had nine minutes in the school with no armed resistance.
Harris should not use the deaths of American children to push her agenda on the eighth anniversary of the Sandy Hook shooting. Not to mention, these policies do nothing to prevent an event like this from happening again. Instead, we must fight to safeguard our right to bear arms in order to protect our children and families.
