The vice president made the gun control remarks after speaking at the funeral of an 86-year-old woman killed in the Buffalo shooting

Vice President Kamala Harris called for a ban on "assault weapons" on Saturday

after she spoke at the funeral of a woman killed in the Buffalo

New York grocery store mass shooting earlier this month.

She called the firearm a "weapon of war" that has "no place in civil society."

"We are not sitting around waiting to figure out what the solution looks like.

You know, we're not looking for a vaccine.

We know what works on this," she told reporters outside of Air Force Two at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport

referring to the series of mass shootings that have plagued the U.S. "Let's have an assault weapons ban."
