Rep. Eric Swalwell has already said he’s going to center his presidential campaign on gun control and will unleash nuclear weapons on anyone who tries to stand in his way, but that doesn’t mean the other Democratic hopefuls aren’t weighing in as well.

As Twitchy reported, Sen. Kamala Harris told a CNN town hall that if Congress didn’t “get their act together and have the courage to pass reasonable gun safety laws” in the first 100 days of her administration, she’d resort to executive orders to create the gun control laws she wants with her pen and phone.

This might have been the one thing on which she hasn’t flip-flopped, but she really ought to.

“Taking executive actions if Republicans continue to cower to the NRA.” Harris must know that the NRA doesn’t give even a fraction to candidates what Planned Parenthood does, and she even posted a fundraising page for Planned Parenthood on her campaign site. Maybe she really doesn’t know the difference between a Constitutional right and a special interest? Or what separation of powers means?

Her website says, “If Congress fails to send comprehensive gun safety legislation to Harris’ desk within her first 100 days as president — including universal background checks, an assault weapons ban, and the repeal of the NRA’s corporate gun manufacturer and dealer immunity bill — she will take executive action to keep our kids and communities safe.”

Too bold? Too bold to make it through the Supreme Court, for sure.
