Published

on

Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) and Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) have filed a bill to designate specific Mexican cartels as Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs).

In a written statement, Chip Roy said “Cartels are the problem and it is time we started acting like it.”

Roy continued:

“My colleague Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) and I are asking Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to conduct a review in order to designate these specific Mexican drug cartels Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs).”

The congressmen’s bill singles out the following cartels as FTOs:

  • The Reynosa/Los Metros faction of the Gulf Cartel
  • The Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG)
  • The Cartel Del Noreste (CDN) faction of Los Zetas

According to Roy, these specific factions were chosen “because of their particularly violent actions and intentional strategies to affect the political system. These cartels push for an anarchic form of government which allows them to skirt laws and push their terrorist model without any legal ramifications.”

Roy’s colleague Mark Green added,

Americans know that it is time to get tough and secure our southern border through physical barriers and better enforcement. The president is using the money Congress sent him to begin building a wall, and now we must follow up with this new designation that will empower our law enforcement agents to fight the cartels.

This is just another demonstration why border security is a must.

Indeed, cartel violence is largely the result of the U.S.’s failed Drug War policies that let drug cartels profit off of black market drug sales and Mexico’s failed governing institutions. Some policies like ending the War on Drugs are ideal, but not politically realistic in today’s environment.

Nevertheless, governments have an obligation to protect their citizens from foreign threats such as drug cartels. One of the more politically realistic solutions is the construction of a border wall.

Drug cartels are only one layer of the many problems that open borders bring.

Over-extended welfare states, immigrant ghettoes, and the consolidation of leftist rule are all on the menu.

For so much talk about border security in the past two years, very little has been done, even when Republicans were in control of both chambers of Congress.

What is happening at our border merits a proper response from the U.S. government. We cannot afford to ignore this subject any longer.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
