New Mexico sheriffs are standing up to the latest gun grabs being proposed in the New Mexico Legislature.
29 out of 33 sheriffs in New Mexico have voiced their opposition to gun control laws which include red flag gun confiscation orders, universal background checks, and mandatory storage laws.
Lea County Sheriff Corey Helton expressed his disapproval with the proposed bills:
“You’re just taking guns out of law-abiding citizen’s hands.”
Like a seasoned advocate of gun rights, Sheriff Helton understands that criminals couldn’t care less about what gun control laws are on the books:
“This is not going to affect the criminals out there. They’re going to be able to get guns and they do not follow the law.”
State Rep. Joy Garrat (D) introduced HB 83, New Mexico’s red flag gun confiscation bill. She asserts that a red flag gun confiscation order would have prevented the Parkland shooter, Nikolas Cruz, from committing the Parkland massacre:
“Had this bill been there they would have been able to remove his weapons temporarily while he got the mental health and law enforcement investigation that should have been done.”
One thing gun control proponents like Joy Garrat conveniently ignore is that red flag gun laws are not a novel ideal, nor are they a magical solution to reducing gun violence.
In 1999, Connecticut got the ball rolling when lawmakers passed the nation’s first red flag law in the wake of a shooting at a State Lottery headquarters. Even with a red flag law on the books, Adam Lanza killed his mother at home and then killed 20 children and six staffers at Sandy Hook Elementary on December 14, 2002.
Even in the present, Garratt ignores recent shootings in states like Florida which have red flag laws.
Following the Parkland shooting Florida enacted a red flag law that could not prevent the Jacksonville Landing shooting, where three people were killed, and the SunTrust Bank shooting in Sebring, where five people were slain.
The other bills proposed in this gun control package include, House Bill 130, which mandates “safe storage” of firearms, and Senate Bill 8, which imposes background checks on all private firearms sales.
Since the Parkland shooting, gun control is in vogue in blue states across the nation. You can safely count New Mexico as the next state that’s falling for the anti-gun hysteria.
As The West Adopts “Wokeism” As New Religion, Russia Bans Homosexual Marriage Permanently
On June 1, 2020, Russia officially enshrined traditional marriage — a union between a man and a woman— in its constitution.
Russia’s new constitution also officially recognizes the role that the Orthodox Church has played in the history and the development of the Russian state.
According to Deutsche Welle, 78 percent of Russian voters pulled the lever in favor of the Constitutional reforms which included the extension of Putin’s term in office and a guaranteed minimum pension.-
Russian President Vladimir Putin made a strong statement to the Russian people, indicating that they were ones in charge of their political destiny:
“I will outline my stand once again. It is clear, unchangeable and absolutely firm: the updated constitution, all the proposed amendments will enter into force only if you approve and support them.”
With this vote casted, Christian marriage is law of the land in Russia.
Unlike its western counterparts, which have embraced political correctness, Russia actually makes efforts to preserve its nation and promote decent values.
If a government is to exist, it should at least promote pro-social behavior and not undermine its historic nation via social engineering or policies that destroy traditional institutions.
Ironically, Russia is one of the few superpowers that gets that.
