California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris said she owns a gun for “personal safety” Thursday, adding she wants to protect the Second Amendment after leading efforts to ban assault weapons.

“I am a gun owner, and I own a gun for probably the reason a lot of people do — for personal safety,” Harris told reporters after attending a party with supporters in Des Moines, Iowa, according to Business Insider. “I was a career prosecutor.”

The 2020 hopeful also said she believes she can solve gun control issues, mentioning a lack of leadership.

“We are being offered a false choice,” Harris continued. “You’re either in favor of the Second Amendment or you want to take everyone’s guns away. It’s a false choice that is born out of a lack of courage from leaders who must recognize and agree that there are some practical solutions to what is a clear problem in our country.”

Harris was the attorney general of California from 2011 to 2017 before being elected to the Senate. Now, she hopes to take on Trump in the 2020 election, but will have to get through a crowded Democratic primary first.

The California Democrat has previously said the U.S. needs a president who knows how to prosecute President Donald Trump, citing her former job as state attorney general.

    The Constitution requires senators and representatives to be “citizens” and meet age and residence requirements, but the president must be a “natural born citizen” and meet age and residence requirements. They are TWO different things. One may be a citizen through birth in the U.S. (but there are exceptions), through having at least one citizen parent or through naturalization, but the ONLY way to be a “natural born citizen” is through birth on U.S. soil to parents (plural) who are themselves, citizens (again, plural).
    Kamala Harris was born in Oakland, Ca. in 1964. Her mother, from India, came here in 1960. Her Jamaican father came here in 1961. They had NOT lived in the U.S. long enough to have become citizens prior to Kamala’s birth. They were foreign nationals, so Kamala’s only claim to citizenship is the 14th Amendment, which does not and cannot make anyone a “natural born citizen”. She is NOT constitutionally eligible to be president or vice president!

    It’s amazing how these Democrats think, their against the wall yet they have walls around their property. Their against guns yet they own them for their own protection. Their for illegal aliens coming in yet they don’t want them in their neighborhoods. There’s a old saying “Do as I say, not as I do”.

    a demoncrat will not win…Donald Trump will be the on going president in 2020.
    And yes, she is a hypocrite as the rest are as well. Bernie touts socialism while he himself is a millionaire with 3 homes, socialists are supposed to share their wealth with the rest of them…guess he was missing that page in the handbook.
    Check out the you tube for Kim Clement…..there are many videos and all worthwhile watching. he passed away Nov. 23, 2016 after the election of Donald Trump whom he said would win because it was planned by God. When God says it will be so, it will happen.
