In a recent video, William Kirk, President of Washington Gun Law, delves into the appointment of Vice President Kamala Harris as the point person on gun control, examining her past performances on various issues. Kirk expresses his frustration with the erosion of Second Amendment rights and the disregard shown by local politicians and lower courts towards Supreme Court rulings. Against this backdrop, the announcement of Harris's role sparks mixed reactions within the 2A community.
Kirk proceeds to analyze Harris's track record as the point person on abortion rights, voting rights, and border security. He highlights the Supreme Court's Dobbs decision and its impact on the abortion debate, noting the advancement of unborn rights in various states. However, he refrains from delving deeper into the contentious topic.
Moving on to voting rights, Kirk points out that despite President Biden assigning Harris to spearhead the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, the legislation has yet to become law. He cites the opposition faced by the act and questions Harris's ability to broker a deal, given her political clout and experience.
Addressing the issue of border security, Kirk avoids taking a stance but acknowledges the widely recognized crisis at the southern border. He criticizes the lack of action by President Biden and Vice President Harris in addressing the humanitarian and security concerns.
As the video progresses, Kirk underscores the significance of the current landscape of gun ownership, with increasing numbers of first-time buyers from demographics such as women, minorities, and the LGBTQ+ community. He predicts that the arguments against firearms will resurface, including the familiar claims that firearms are the leading cause of youth deaths and that weapons of war have no place on the streets. However, Kirk doubts that any substantial legislative action will result from Harris's appointment.
In conclusion, Kirk urges viewers to stay informed about their Second Amendment rights and emphasizes the importance of knowing and understanding the law in any situation. He invites further inquiries and provides contact information for Washington Gun Law.
