Sen. kamala Harris, in her effort to step up the gun control measures, proposed the use of executive orders to enact gun control, if Congress failed to act. She said the proposal to use executive orders to enact gun control measures is viewed by some people as ” too bold. ”
100 Americans are killed by guns every single day. Gun violence is a national epidemic and it’s time we take action. Tonight I announced the executive actions I intend to take in my first 100 days as president if Congress refuses to act.https://t.co/elch3KYvNC— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) April 23, 2019
The senator proposed this legislation during a television town hall event on Monday. She said Congress has only 100 days to pass the gun safety regulation or she would be forced to act.
There has been serious considerable debate regarding the ‘Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.
The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
Some have argued that the Second Amendment gives United states citizens the constitutional rights to bear arms. While some Scholars have narrowed it to ” the collective rights theory”, which limits an individuals right to bear arms.
