29 New Mexico Sheriffs Condemn Flurry of Gun Control Bills

Published

on

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.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Plans to Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against President Biden ON DAY ONE

She’s citing Biden family corruption.

Published

Georgia freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is planning on introducing articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden the day after he’s inaugurated.

Greene made the announcement on Wednesday.

Greene is citing Biden family corruption, accusing Biden of standing by as his own relatives enriched themselves through business deals with foreign oligarchs, using the former Vice President’s family name.

Biden game-planned on messaging to dismiss his son Hunter’s involvement with corrupt Ukrainian oil company Burisma, receiving advice from the State Department while accusing the company’s oligarch owner of criminal activity. It didn’t occur to Biden to address the fact that his own son secured highly lucrative employment with Burisma until the topic became a point of political contention in the 2020 election.

Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, has also been accused of securing lucrative business deals in China under the auspices of the Biden family name. Biden has steadfastly refused to speak in detail about suspicious Biden family business dealings, even though he’s gone so far as to openly brag about securing the termination of a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden and Burisma for laundering profits of the former state-owned enterprise.

Greene is demanding that Biden be held accountable for the de facto licensure of his family name in Ukraine, an international liability that far surpasses anything proven to be real through a lengthy investigation into Donald Trump’s supposed connections of Russia.

The articles of impeachment are doomed from the get-go, with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi assured to protect Biden from allegations of corruption and poor governance. However, the Democratic Party has been unable to resist turning the presidential impeachment process into a wholly partisan, reactionary affair, and may reap the whirlwinds of their decision if Republicans willing to hold the establishment politician accountable gain majorities in the House and the Senate.
