Kamala Harris Flat-Out Calls for Australian-Style National Gun Confiscation

Vice President Kamala Harris called for a major national gun grab as she defended the gun confiscation conducted by the Australian government in 1996.

Speaking at a State Department event in which Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese was present, Harris mentioned the mass shooting in Lewiston, Maine, in which 18 Americans were killed.

“In our country today, the leading cause of death of American children is gun violence.”

“Gun violence has terrorized and traumatized so many of our communities in this country.”

“And let us be clear: it does not have to be this way,” Harris said of gun violence in the United States before pointing to Albanese.

“As our friends in Australia have demonstrated.”

The VP continued to pivot away from domestic gun policy.

Watch

According to a brief on the Australian Parliament’s official website, there is no legal right to gun ownership in Australia “in contrast to the position in the United States,” Fox News noted.

As the outlet continued:

Further, the nation’s laws further mandate that individuals who purchase firearms must have a license, and each firearm they own must be individually registered.

Such a requirement, according to the Australian Parliament brief, contrasts with New Zealand and Canada which require firearm purchasers to obtain a license but allows them to freely purchase firearms after obtaining said license.

Australia’s crackdown on firearm ownership came in 1996 following a spate of widely-publicized mass shootings.

The so-called 1996 National Firearms Agreement banned automatic and semi-automatic firearms, introduced firearm registration, established stricter storage requirements for all firearms, and tightly restricted non-military style semi-automatic rifles and shotguns purchases.

The Australian government also initiated a mandatory gun buyback program, which collected 700,000 privately owned firearms.

former Australian Prime Minister John Howard wrote in a New York Times op-ed in 2013:

“In the end, we won the battle to change gun laws because there was majority support across Australia for banning certain weapons.”

“And today, there is a wide consensus that our 1996 reforms not only reduced the gun-related homicide rate, but also the suicide rate.”

Others within the Democratic Party, including Beto O’Rourke, have proposed similar policies in the United States.

O’Rourke pushed the idea of forcibly confiscating semi-automatic rifles from their owners during his furtive 2020 presidential campaign.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
