FAILED State: Mormon Family Slaughtered During Cartel Firefight in Mexico

Published

on

ZeroHedge reported on the tragic story of an American family from Utah who was ambushed by cartel gunmen.

In response to this incident, President Donald Trump posted a series of tweets offering American aid in trying to bring the cartel thugs to justice. He stated, “If Mexico needs or requests help in cleaning out these monsters, the United States stands ready, willing & able to get involved and do the job quickly and effectively.”

Trump also noted that Mexico must get its crime problem in order after various violent incidents took place in the past few months.

Trump added that this family was caught in the crossfire between two rival drug cartels.

 

Mexico has already cooperated with the U.S. to keep refugee inflows from Central America in check. The question is, will Mexico finally clean up its problem with cartel violence?

During a violent ambush on a Mexican highway in the state of Sonora, armed thugs slaughtered a family of nine Americans.

Reportedly, there were eight survivors from a caravan of families who were traveling in the Mexican border state. The victims’ friend claims that the family was living in La Mora at the time of the incident. La Mora is located 75 miles south of the American border.

The family was reported to be a part of a Mormon group living in Mexico, and were apparently traveling for a wedding.

ZeroHedge provided an overview of the victims:

This family friend named the victims as Christina Marie Langford Johnson, 29, Dawna Langford, 43, Trevor Langford, 11, and Rogan Langford, two-and-a-half. Also slain were Rhonita Miller, 30, Howard Miller, 12, Krystal Miller, 10, and eight-month-old twins, Titus and Tiana Miller. They were all part of a Mormon group living in Mexico, and some were said to be traveling for a wedding.

One of the victims’ relatives, Willie Jessop, a Utah resident, relayed to reporters that a caravan of families was traveling together when they were abruptly ambushed. Jessop claimed that three of the cars were shot at and one of them going up in flames.

Jessop said he and his family have been trying to press Mexican federal officials into investigating the killings. They have also reached out to the FBI.

“Everyone is in so much shock,” he claimed. “It’s just unbelievable and there’s just no way to comprehend it.”

Although violence seems to be an everyday occurence in Mexico, its populace maybe have had enough. BLP reported last month on drug cartel members outgunning Mexican security forces and compelling them to release the son of “El Chapo” Guzmán, the former head of the Sinaloa Cartel who is now locked up in an American Supermax prison.

As violence continues in Mexico, immigration and border security discussions will become more heated in American policy circles.

The immigration question is multi-faceted, with public security and socio-economic concerns occupying many voters’ minds heading into 2020.

President Trump will soon need to put the pressure on Congress to bolster security.

Now, more than ever, America needs a wall along its southern border to protect it from the very real threat of Mexican narco terror.

Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation

Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”

Published

on

Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.

Under The Background Check Expansion Act,  gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm. 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House

“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.

According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.

Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms. 

Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.

Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
