Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris, who recently announced the launch of her 2020 presidential campaign, has been calling for “universal background checks” to help combat gun violence.

In a Twitter post on Tuesday, she wrote, “We don’t need to be looking around, waiting for good ideas when it comes to combating gun violence. We already have good ideas. Making background checks universal. Renewing the assault weapons ban. We can act now to make sure this violence doesn’t continue as the new normal.”

Harris repeated the proposal in another tweet on Thursday, writing, “You know what’s a threat? Gun violence. It kills on average 96 people every day. I will never be afraid to stand up to the gun lobby and their efforts to make our communities less safe.”

She added in another tweet, “It’s reasonable to suggest that before someone can buy a gun, we determine whether they’ve been convicted of a violent felony or whether a court has found them to be a danger to themselves or others. We need universal background checks.”

President Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr, hit back, calling out Harris for her support of illegal immigrants, “While we’re at it, how about a universal background check at the border???”

Another Twitter user echoed that thought, asking Harris, “Wouldn’t it make sense for those same types of background checks to apply to EVERYONE entering our country? Gotta stop ‘em at the border FIRST.”
