(AmericanProsperity.com) – Any time there’s a mass casualty event in the United States, the Democrats use the devastation as a means of pushing more gun legislation. The shootings in Monterey Park and Half Moon Bay, California, were no different. Vice President Kamala Harris recently traveled to the state to pay her respects, but also to push an agenda.
On Wednesday, January 25, Harris traveled to Monterey Park, where witnesses viewed her laying a bouquet of flowers at the scene of the Star Ballroom Dance Studio. The spot marked a deadly shooting that had claimed 11 lives just days prior. It didn’t end there.
Harris took the opportunity to speak to the press after she laid the flowers down at the memorial. During her speech she said people must “require that leaders of nations who have the ability and the power and the responsibility to do something, that they act.” She acknowledged that California has made great strides in the fight against guns, but Congress must do the same, calling on it to “have courage.”

Police are still investigating the shooting, which authorities allege 72-year-old Huu Can Tran carried out during a Lunar New Year celebration. Tran attempted to execute a second shooting but was disarmed by a brave worker, 26-year-old Brandon Tsay. So far, authorities don’t have a concrete motive, though they suspect jealousy might have played a role.
The weapon Tran allegedly used was a 9-millimeter MAC-10, a gun that’s already illegal in California. It’s not clear how more legislation would have helped prevent the crime, but that hasn’t stopped the Left from looking to enact more stringent laws.
President Joe Biden has repeatedly urged Congress to reinstate an assault weapons ban that expired in 2004. He had helped to pass that law when he was a senator 10 years prior. Democrats passed legislation in the House last year, but it didn’t get past the Senate.
