2020 hopeful Kamala Harris says she owns gun for protection

AP  |  Des Moines (US) 

Harris says she owns a gun and called it a "false choice" that the only two gun control options are complete, unrestricted access or a desire to seize everyone's guns.

The from told reporters after a campaign event in that she is a gun owner. She says, "I own a gun for probably the reason that a lot of people do: for personal safety."

The 2020 hopeful says that Americans "are being offered a false choice, which suggests you're either in favour of the Second Amendment or you want to take everyone's guns away."

She says she supports "smart gun-safety laws," such as universal background checks and a ban on assault weapons.
