2020 hopeful Kamala Harris says she owns gun for protection
The senator from California told reporters after a campaign event in Iowa 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 White House hopeful says that Americans "are being offered a false choice, which suggests you're either in favor 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.
