Kamala Harris commemorated the eighth anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting by demanding more "common sense" gun reforms.
Harris had promised to pass stricter gun control laws limiting firearm access through executive action if Congress failed to act within 100 days. During her failed campaign she also pledged to pass an "assault weapons" ban, a mandatory buyback, without grandfathering the existing weapons.
"Today marks 8 years since 20 first-graders and 6 educators were murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School," Harris tweeted. "To honor the lives lost in this terrible tragedy, it's past time we implement common-sense gun safety reforms to keep our children safe."
On the same anniversary, Joe Biden hinted at his intentions to declare gun violence as a national health crisis in a message to the victims' families. He already selected the anti-gun California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to head the Department of Health and Human Services.
"You've helped us forge a consensus that gun violence is a national health crisis and we need to address its total cost to fully heal families, communities, and our nation," Biden's statement read.
Biden's most radical gun control proposals include the repeal of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, an "assault weapons" and "high capacity" magazine ban, the introduction of waiting periods, and monthly handgun purchase limits.
Biden-Harris's campaign was described as the most anti-gun ticket. Heavily funded gun control groups invested heavily in the campaign expecting payback in the form of stricter anti-gun laws.
Such groups continue pushing for invasive gun laws through unchecked executive action despite Biden's confession that executive authority was limited in passing gun laws.
Other anti-gun politicians made similar calls for restriction on firearm ownership. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, (D-Conn) called on the "new administration" to double efforts against "gun violence," a term used to refer to stricter gun control.
"We mark this painful 8th anniversary of the shooting at Sandy Hook with renewed resolve—to honor the beautiful lives lost with positive action & redouble efforts against gun violence under a new administration," he tweeted.
