Attorney General Bill Barr Understands the Importance of Border Control in Fighting Pandemics

Published

“The real threat to human beings are microbes,” not global warming, Attorney General William Barr declared on April 9. He asserted that increased border security is the first step in preventing deadly diseases like the Wuhan Virus from entering America.

In an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham, Barr said that greater respect for border control from the populace may actually be one of the “good things that can flow” from the Wuhan Virus outbreak.

“I think, as horrible as this is and as tragic as it is, there are a couple of good things that can flow from this experience. And, one is to once again appreciate the importance of borders and controlling who is coming in to the country.”

“I’ve felt for a long time – as much as people talk about global warming – that the real threat to human beings are microbes and being able to control disease. And that starts with controlling your border,” Barr continued.

“So, I think people will be more attuned to more protective measures.”

Barr declared that history will be kind to President Trump when he “made the right decisions for the right reasons” after closing the borders. Such decision-making “saved a lot of lives.”

Given where we were back in March, I think the president made the right decision – I think the president’s made the right decisions for the right reasons – I think, against the advice of many people, to close the borders. And, I think, when the history of this is written, that is going to have saved a lot of lives.

CNS News brings up a good point about the supply chain implications of this crisis, which highlights why the U.S. should not be so dependent on China.

Barr noted the following:

But, also the supply-chain issue: the idea that much of what we need to protect the health of the American people is in the control of foreign governments who can interdict and say, ‘We’re not shipping stuff to the United States,’ when everyone else in the world wants it during a pandemic, was a crazy situation to get into. It happened before this administration and the president is trying to deal with it.

Barr has been a faithful executor of Trump’s America First agenda.

Unlike most on the globalist Left and Right, Barr understands the importance of borders and the role they play in stabilizing a nation.

If Democrats Win, Will Guns Sales Go Through the Roof?

Published

on

No matter who wins in 2020, the biggest story of this election cycle has been the record levels of gun sales.  In a piece titled “Guns Sales Break Records With Gun Control Legislation Likely If Democrats Win”, Newsweek highlights the meteoric rise of gun sales in 2020 and how these sales will only go up under a Biden administration.

It’s likely that a Biden win on November 3, 2020 will give life to gun control measure such as universal background checks, assault weapons bans, and national gun buybacks. Scott Reeves of Newsweek noted that “coronavirus pandemic, urban riots and the likelihood of increased regulation if the Democrats win the White House, regain control of the Senate and hold the House” have led to the unprecedented firearms sales.  A Biden win would only accelerate this trend, as people become frightened by the prospect of gun control.

Through September, background checks recorded by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) reached 28.826 million. This total surpassed 2019’s record of 28.369 million, representing a 28 percent increase, according to the FBI report. As of September 30, Illinois was leading the nation in background checks with 5.6 million. Reeves noted that other states such as Kentucky (2.364 million) checks, Texas (1.730 million), Florida (1.386 million), Indiana (1.203 million), California (1.187 million) and Pennsylvania (1.030 million), were also experiencing significant upticks in gun sales.

Since NICS came into effect on November 1998, a total of 361.830 million background checks for all purposes have been completed since the program began in November 1998.

Zogby Analytics provided some more data showing how enthusiastic Americans are about buying guns:

Zogby Analytics in Utica, New York found that the number of gun owners increased 3.9% between October 2019 and October 2020 to 31.3% of the population. The number of individuals in a household keeping a gun at home, work, vacation cottage or club for personal protection, hunting or target shooting increased 7% to 42.2% in the last year. Membership in the National Rifle Association, a gun rights advocacy group, increased 6% to 17.7% in the last year, Zogby’s polling found.

“While there is fierce debate in Washington D.C. and among voters about what certain types of guns and accessories constitute ‘assault weapons,’ adults in the U.S. are buying and keeping more guns,” Jonathan Zogby declared.

Josh Horwitz, executive director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, an anti-Second Amendment organization, is of the opinion that uncertainty brought about by the Wuhan virus pandemic, riots, and the election are contributing factors to the rise in gun sales.

“Typically, gun sales rise in times of fear,” he said to Newsweek. “We live in a time when there’s a lot of fear, including fear that there might be more gun regulation with a Democratic President and Democratic majorities in Congress. And, there’s been a lot of unrest.”

Americans actions speak louder than their words. Even if Joe Biden does the unthinkable (and the very unlikely) by winning on November 3, his administration will encounter stiff resistance from gun-owning Americans across the political spectrum.
