Kamala Harris unveils gun violence prevention plan

Democratic presidential hopeful and California Senator Kamala Harris proposed a new plan on Wednesday to tackle domestic terrorism following the recent devastating mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton.

"In America, loaded guns should not be a few clicks away for any domestic terrorist with a laptop or smartphone," the 2020 presidential contender said in a statement. "We need to take action to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people and stop violent, hate-fueled attacks before they happen. By focusing on confronting these domestic terror threats, we can save lives," Harris added.

If elected, she said she would push for legislation that would allow individuals to petition federal courts to temporarily restrict a person’s access to firearms who may perpetrate hate crimes.
