Count Donald Trump Jr. as someone who’s skeptical of passing gun control after recent shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas.
Rebecca Ballhaus, Andrew Restuccia, and Natalie Andrews wrote at The Wall Street Journal about Trump Jr.’s concerns with certain gun control proposals such as red flag gun confiscation orders and expanded background checks.
Donald Trump Jr., the president’s son who often speaks with his father about his views on gun laws, has raised concerns about both red-flag legislation and about tightening background checks, according to people familiar with the matter.
BLP reported on how Trump Jr. has been a strong advocate for accessory deregulation, especially in the case of firearms suppressors. His influence was rather strong from 2017 to 2018, when Republicans had control of all branches of government and were poised to pass one of the most comprehensive firearms accessory deregulation reforms in American history.
However, this attempt was ultimately capsized after the Las Vegas shooting of 2017. Nonetheless, Trump Jr. has indirectly held a strong pro-gun presence throughout the Trump administration.
Even his father recognizes this. President Trump told supporters at a fundraiser last Friday in N.Y that “Don Jr. is my gun expert. He knows more about guns than anyone I know.”
Conservative commentators across the nation have also warned Trump to not entertain gun control. Renowned conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh declared that red flag laws are a “pipeline to gun control.”
Iowa radio host Steave Deace also chimed in saying, “When you’re president because of a grand total of less than 78,000 votes spread out over three states, you don’t have to alienate too much of your base on an issue they care about to lose.”
With the calls for gun control growing louder, Trump will need to stand strong and not cave to media pressure. He would be best served by listening to his son on this issue.
Mexico is in Third Place for Wuhan Virus Deaths Yet Democrats Still Want to Open the Floodgates to Mass Migration
According to the John Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center, Mexico is ranked in third place for Wuhan virus deaths.
The country has 462,690 confirmed cases, with 50,517 people having died from the virus. This puts Mexico’s case fatality rate at 10.9 percent
According to a report from Breitbart News, Mexican officials assert that the “high number of fatalities is due to the fact that people are fat and eat junk food.”
There is speculation that the numbers disclosed by the Mexican government have been filled with cases of rampant undercounting. Some officials believe that the numbers could be three times as high as those officially recorded, according to a Breitbart Texas report.
As of August 7, 2020, the following countries led the way in terms of Wuhan virus related deaths.
- United States — 160,104 fatalities
- Brazil — 98,493 fatalities
- Mexico — 50,517 fatalities
Although the conventional narrative is that high diabetes and obesity rates contributed to Mexico’s high Wuhan virus death count, Ildefonso Ortiz of Breitbart News pointed to information from the government epidemiology oversight database which “revealed that in Mexico City, many of the fatal patients were actually otherwise-healthy young adults who did not have access to a ventilator” according to a Forbes report.
Regardless of what the root causes of Mexico’s Wuhan virus death are, the U.S. needs to get serious about fully securing its border.
Let’s face it, Mexico is a failed state and its problems will inevitably make their way to the U.S. if the border remains relaxed.
With Democrat candidate Joe Biden calling for radical open borders policies, the U.S. is on the cusp of unleashing a tidal wave of social and public health dysfunction should he beat President Trump in November.
The Trump administration needs to get serious about this matter and completely secure the border while exposing Biden’s mass migration radicalism.
