(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – While attending the memorial service for the oldest victim of the grocery store massacre in Buffalo, New York, and signaling that President Joe Biden would join her in demanding an “assault weapons ban,” Vice President Kamala Harris slammed the United States of America as a nation experiencing an “epidemic of hate.”
On Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend, Harris was speaking at the funeral of Ruth Whitfield, one of the ten people slain in a Buffalo, New York, grocery store on May 14. According to law enforcement professionals investigating the massacre, the gunman, who is White, intentionally picked the store because it’s in a predominantly Black community.
During her remarks to those attending the service, Harris said, “I cannot even begin to express our collective pain as a nation for what you are feeling in such an extreme way, to not only lose someone that you love but through an act of extreme violence and hate. And I do believe that our nation right now is experiencing an epidemic of hate.”
Continuing and connecting several recent mass shootings that have plagued the United States, Harris said, “There’s a through-line, what happened here in Buffalo, in Texas, in Atlanta, in Orlando, what happened at the synagogues. So this is a moment that requires all good people who are loving people to just say we will not stand for this. Enough is enough. We will come together based on what we all know we have in common, and we will not let those people who are motivated by hate separate us or make us feel fear.”
After the memorial service, while speaking with reporters, Harris demanded that Congress pass an “assault weapons” ban, saying that assault weapons are weapons of war.
