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.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
