Fox Business Host went full gun grabber on August 7, 2019.
She tweeted that Trump “has a major opportunity: he can BAN assault weapons and invoke strict gun laws and background checks in one executive order” in response to recent shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.
.@realDonaldTrump has a major opportunity: he can BAN assault weapons and envoke strict gun laws and backgrnd checks in one executive order. To heck w/ lobbyists at NRA – the majority of Americans and common sense supports this! It’s time to do what is right for our country.

What Regan is advocating for was already tried when the federal government passed an “assault weapons” ban in the 1990s.
According to the Washington Times, the Department of Justice’s National Institute of Justice found that the ban produced “no discernible reduction in the lethality and injuriousness of gun violence.”
Additionally, California has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation. It is ranked 46th according to Guns & Ammo magazine. Nevertheless, a high-profile shooting took place on July 28, 2019 at the Gilroy Garlic Festival.
Red flag confiscation orders have also been put forward as legislation that must be passed to address gun violence. Careful research shows that these laws have also proven to be ineffective in stopping shootings as well. In fact, Connecticut was a leader in passing red flag laws by enacting its own version of the law in 1999. However, this law was unable to stop Adam Lanza from committing a massacre at Sandy Hook.
Gun researcher John Lott’s work on the subject has also demonstrated that “Red Flag laws appear to have had no significant effect on murder, suicide, the number of people killed in mass public shootings, robbery, aggravated assault or burglary. There is some evidence that rape rates rise. These laws apparently do not save lives.”
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
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.
