Gun Rights Group Meets with White House Staff to Warn Trump About Gun Confiscation Bill

Published

on

In an email directed to their members, the American Firearms Coalition reported that they met with members of White House legislative staff to voice concerns about “Red Flag Gun Seizure” legislation.

They informed the White House staffers that “red flag” laws are a “a danger to gun owners and the Second Amendment rights of all Americans, but also a political danger to the President in 2020, who made disturbing comments about this subject in the days after last year’s Parkland shooting.”

The no compromise gun rights group left the meeting urging White House staff to pass their letter to President.

AFC promises to deliver 100,000 petitions against “red flags” to the White House in the upcoming weeks.

The gun rights group claims that while they were in meetings with White House staff, “the National Rifle Association was working overtime on Capitol Hill to cut a deal on this issue.”

According to AFC and their sources in DC, “Senator Lindsey Graham and anti-gun radical Senator Dick Blumenthal of Connecticut are doing everything they can to present a “bipartisan” piece of legislation that the President could sign.”

They also highlighted how Senator Marco Rubio’s “Red Flag Gun Seizure” bill “was draconian to say the least.”

Going back to the Graham-Blumenthal bill, AFC claims that this red flag iteration would “pay states tens of millions of your taxpayer dollars if they pass “Red Flag Gun Seizure” bills in their respective states.”

In the no compromise group’s view, “red flag” legislation is unacceptable. They argue that “if we gun owners give an inch on this, one day the anti-gunners on Capitol Hill will take an entire mile, leaving our Second Amendment rights on the chopping block of a liberal judge.”

AFC plans on unleashing a massive petition campaign against this bill and will also visit White House staff again to reiterate their opposition.

Red flag laws allow judges to confiscate an individual’s guns for simply being perceived as a “threat”, in complete disregard to due process.

During the last year, red flag laws have been enacted in states like Colorado and Florida.

Red flag laws have considerable bipartisan support.

As mentioned before, even Republicans like Lindsey Graham are drafting their own red flag legislation which has drawn criticism from other gun groups like Gun Owners of America.

With a divided congress, most gun control legislation will have a hard time moving forward.

However, red flags may have found a new home in Washington, D.C.

U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel

Published

on

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.
