While news broke out of several Philadelphia police officers fired on Wednesday, CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer most recently offered Kamala Harris an opportunity to explain his gun policy.
"You are a former California attorney, what is your reaction to the first reports, and I emphasize the words initial reports ?" Blitzer asked.
"It's one – when will it stop, right? Part of my focus on what we need to do about smart gun safety laws is that we need to have more enforcement around gun dealers. Wolf, 90% of the weapons associated with crime being sold by only 5% of arms dealers in the United States, "Harris said.
"And so among the many plans I have both in the form of executive action and also in the form of legislation, one of them is to put more resources into the ATF to take licenses for firearms dealers who violate the law. And that includes a number of things, including when they are responsible for doing background checks, not doing them, "she said.
The California Democrat urged Congress to act on firearms because "we do not lack for good ideas. We do not miss for tragedies. However, Congress's failure, the US Congress to act on passing smart gun security laws is the issue."
Harris reiterated. her plan is that if she is elected Ed President, she will give Congress 100 days to implement strict gun control legislation. If they do not meet her deadline, she will take executive action.
