BETRAYAL: Texas Governor Flirts with Regulating Private Gun Sales

Published

on

The AP reported last Thursday that Texas Governor Greg Abbott voiced concerns about private firearms sales but made no commitment to crack down on them or enact control measures following a meeting on ways to prevent future mass shootings such as the recent El Paso massacre.

Abbott stated that Texas would closely examine gun laws and other safety measures before the Texas State Legislature convenes in 2021.

Monitoring private gun sales were among the list of ideas that Abbott floated after coming out of a closed-door meeting about the El Paso tragedy with elected officials, police, and representatives from Big Tech companies such as Google, Facebook and Twitter.

Abbott stated, “Right now there is nothing in law that would prevent one stranger from selling a gun to a terrorist, and obviously that’s a danger that needs to be looked into.”

The Texas Governor provided no details about how Texas would keep tabs on private gun sales but did voice concerns about how some firearms could wind up in the wrong hands.

Big Tech executives were invited to speak with the Governor after he called for a crackdown on websites that violent extremists use to conduct their operations.

Executives from Google, Facebook and Twitter left the meeting before reporters were let back into the room. They were invited by Abbott after he called for a crackdown on internet sites used by violent extremists. This was spurred by the reports of the El Paso murderer posting a deranged political memo right before carrying out this atrocity.

According to Abbot, the companies offered several training programs for both users and law enforcement to detect individuals who may pose threats and prevent potential attacks.

Gun Owners of America’s Texas chapter organized a rally outside the Capitol before Abbott’s meeting to protest the “red flag” gun confiscation laws being floated after the El Paso shooting. The group also criticized any efforts to monitor social media that might have come about from these discussions.

The fact that a supposedly conservative governor such as Abbot is entertaining the idea of gun control should concern gun activists in the Lone Star State.

Groups like GOA will  have to play a crucial role during the 2021 legislative session to prevent Abbott and his colleagues from potential selling out on the issue of gun control.

Tennessee’s Marsha Blackburn Calls on Ilhan Omar to Resign After Minnesota Democrat Calls to “Dismantle” U.S. “System of Oppression”

Omar appeared to refer to the American economy and political system as “oppression.”

Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn called upon Minnesota Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar to resign from office on Tuesday, hours after Omar had appeared to endorse the “dismantling” of the American “economy and political systems,” calling them a “system of oppression.”

As long as our economy and our political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shutout, we will perpetuate this inequality. We cannot stop at the criminal justice system. We must begin the work to dismantle the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.

Omar had made the remarks in the context of arguing that Democratic “criminal justice reform” was insufficient to answer the demands of the Black Lives Matter movement, calling for a more dramatic and wide-ranging restructuring of American society.

Blackburn called on the Minnesota freshman Democrat to resign hours after the anti-American speech in a tweet, stating that Omar could no longer credibly follow her oath to preserve the Constitution after referring to the American system broadly as a “system of oppression.”

Omar’s grandfather Abukar Omar had served as a government official in the dictatorship of Siad Barre in Somalia, and the Omar family sought political refuge in the United States when the Barre dictatorship-known for its human rights abuses and a mass killing of minorities thought of by some as a genocide- was overthrown in a civil war.
