“Fight for Your Guns” Says Relative of American Family Slaughtered by Cartels
Last week’s brutal murder of nine American citizens at the hands of drug cartels received international attention.
This grisly incident prompted President Donald Trump to declare “war” on Mexican drug cartels and has re-kindled discussions about border security.
Kendra Lee Miller, the sister-in-law of the recently slain Rohnita Maria Miller, recently appeared on Anderson Cooper’s show on.
Wasting no time, she called on Americans to “fight” for their guns.
“The Mexican people here are oppressed,” Miller stated. “They are being abused by the cartels, living in fear for their life. We can’t drive public roads safely. We’re being threatened that we can’t even take some of the public roads or else we’ll have bad things happen to us.”
“So many people are not protected the way they should be,” she asserted.
“I don’t know where you’re standing on the whole, people-trying-to-take-the-away-guns-in-America right now, but I say, fight for those guns,” the sister-in-law said to Cooper. “These things are happening here in Mexico because the people can’t protect themselves, because by law they’re not allowed to own these guns.”
“So since the government isn’t doing their job of protection in the way that they should, these cartels can just wreak havoc and the people are left defenseless. So I say, hold onto your guns, people,” Miller commented.
So far, there has been considerable speculation about the motives of the attack on the LeBarón and Langford families.
However, Miller believes it was no accident. She argues that her family was “targeted” by the cartel to a kick off a “war.”
“Our family was picked to stir up trouble and start a war,” Miller asserted. “It was an attack on innocent civilians to basically start a war … between the Chihuahua and Sonora cartels who’ve been having turf battles.”
Miller’s words ring true in these circumstances.
Mexico is notorious for having incredibly strict gun laws, which were established during the early 1970s after the federal government gained total control over firearms access. Gun researcher John Lott notes that “For decades Mexico has had only one gun store in the entire country, a military-run establishment in Mexico City.”
Americans often take their Second Amendment rights for granted.
Many countries like Mexico deprive their citizens of such civil liberties which would come in handy in keeping criminals in check.
In the Mexican case, law-abiding citizens are truly out-gunned.
This recent slaughter illustrates that America will have to get serious about border security if it wants to keep these same cartels from moving up north.
