Andrew Yang Thinks $1000/Month Will Stop Mass Shooters

Published

On Friday, a gunman killed twelve people and wounded six others at a Virginia Beach municipal center.

In typical fashion, Democratic presidential candidates started calling for gun control.

One of those most bizarre responses came from Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang.

Yang, who has gained notoriety because of his universal basic income proposal, argued that a UBI would help prevent mass shootings.

He believes that reduced levels of stress would serve as a deterrence for violence.

 

Yang ignores several inconvenient truths:

 

  1. John Lott’s Crime Prevention Research Center notes that “Virginia Beach bans employees from being able to carry gun.”
  2. Virginia is not exactly a pro-gun paradise as it is ranked 30th in Guns and Ammo magazine for the friendliest states for gun ownership. From a pro-gun perspective, its guns laws are middling at best.

 

To think that a new government handout will somehow make states like Virginia safer, is the height of wishful thinking. Instead, Virginia should look at liberalizing its gun laws and reinforcing security in public facilities.

 

With former Vice President Joe Biden rising as the Democratic Party frontrunner, Yang has fallen into obscurity.

 

He’s now doing his best to remain relevant by politicizing this shooting just like the rest of his Democratic rivals.

U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel

Published

on

Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”

U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.

Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.

According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.

The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.

In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.

This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,

That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
