|Kamala Harris wants to ban the import of 'assault weapons'|
Submitted by: firstname.lastname@example.org">Mark A. Taff
Presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., outlined more of her plans to combat gun violence during a campaign event in Nashua, N.H., on Wednesday.
Reiterating her past promise on taking executive action on guns if Congress fails to pass more gun control bills within 100 days, Harris said because "assault weapons are designed to kill a lot of people in a very short period of time," she will issue an executive order to ban the importation of military-style rifles.

|Pure political posturing. Even if one accepts the argument that the executive branch as the authority to ban the import of products, by far the most popular "assault weapons" are designed and manufactured in the United States.|
Therefore, this gambit is a spurious attempt to appear to her base that she is "doing something about gun violence".
