Sen. Kamala Harris has said she would take executive action on guns in the first 100 days of her presidency.
Meanwhile, former Vice President Joe Biden has stressed there's "no constitutional authority" to issue executive orders that would eliminate assault weapons.
Harris was just asked if Biden has a point. The former vice president jumped in before Harris could answer. "Some things you can, many things you can't," he said.
Here's how Harris responded:
"I would just say, 'Hey Joe, instead of saying, 'No we can't' let's say, 'Yes we can,'"
What is an assault weapon anyway? The assault weapons ban enacted in 1994 named 19 semi-automatic firearms, as well as semi-automatic rifles, pistols, and shotguns with specific features.
"In general, assault weapons are semi-automatic firearms with a large magazine of ammunition that were designed and configured for rapid fire and combat use," the Justice Department said at the time.
That law expired in 2004, and has never been renewed.
