Charlottesville Police Chief Wants to Ban All Guns

Published

on

During a chilling exchange during the House Judiciary Committee hearing on banning assault weapons, Dr. RaShall Brackney, Chief of the Charlottesville Police Department, stated that she supports a ban on a broad range of guns.

While fielding a question on potentially banning hunting rifles, she said, “I believe any weapon that can be used to hunt individuals should be banned.”

This candid admission demonstrates that Brackney would be receptive to banning any kind of firearm or weapon, due to the fact that any criminal intent on “hunt[ing] individuals” could use any kind of gun to carry that out.

During this hearing, Brackney was given various opportunities by pro-gun members of the committee to clarify or even retract her bold statement. Brackney stood her ground and maintained her anti-gun position.

Florida Republican Congressman Greg Steube put her on the spot by asking, “Okay, so you then stand for the proposition to ban any type of firearm, because any firearm can be used and misused to kill people.”

Instead of giving a direct answer to the question, Brackney started talking about the police and the social contract. Steube tried repeating his question but was interrupted by anti-gun member of the committee who tried to bring up a point of order. She asserted that Steube was “attacking” her, when he was actually trying to get a direct answer, and asked that he “tone down his words.”

Steube tried to clarify again by asking the police chief, “Any type of weapon … that can be used to kill people should be banned?”

Brackney replied, “Sir, you’re adding the word ‘type.’ I said ‘any weapons,’ so that’s my answer. Thank you.”

The entire exchange can be viewed here.

BLP reported on the introduction of an “assault weapons” ban in the U.S. Congress a few months ago. If passed, this would be the second assault weapons ban implemented at the federal level since the passage of the first version in 1994.

Thankfully, Republican control of the Senate and Presidency will likely stop such legislation in its tracks.

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.
