Top tier presidential candidate Kamala Harris has announced that she’s quitting the 2020 presidential race.
To my supporters, it is with deep regret—but also with deep gratitude—that I am suspending my campaign today.
But I want to be clear with you: I will keep fighting every day for what this campaign has been about. Justice for the People. All the people.https://t.co/92Hk7DHHbR

Harris, who began her political career as Willie Brown’s paramour, endlessly touted her rabid support for gun control. In fact, Harris pledged to go around Congress and take executive action within the first 100 days of taking office to impose gun control upon Americans. From USA Today:
“Upon being elected, I will give the United States Congress 100 days to get their act together and have the courage to pass reasonable gun safety laws. And if they fail to do it, then I will take executive action,” said the California senator when asked about school shootings during a CNN town hall event.
And while Beto O’Rourke famously said, “We’re coming for your AR-15,” Harris expressed a willingness to send police door-to-door to confiscate those guns. From the Washington Examiner:
When asked by the Washington Examiner if her plan would include legal gun owner databases or gun confiscation via law enforcement visits to residents who own banned firearms, she replied, “I’m actually prepared to take executive action to put in place rules that improve this situation.”
She continued, “I also have as part of my background and experience working on this issue, when I was attorney general [of California], and we put resources into allowing law enforcement to actually knock on the doors of people who were on two lists — a list where they had been found by a court to be a danger to themselves and others.
It looks like her message didn’t play well in Peoria. Or anywhere else. Even her own campaign staff attacked her, too.
America will forever be a better place without Kamala Harris in the White House, implementing her gun control dreams by executive fiat.
Joe Perticone makes an apt Twitter post on the announcement.
