Lindsey Graham is Now Drafting His Gun Confiscation Bill

Published

on

According to Buzzfeed News, Graham is now taking the next step in drafting legislation that would expand police powers to confiscate firearms.

These laws allow judges to seize an individual’s guns without due process just for being a perceived “threat”.

Despite providing little in terms of specifics, Graham claimed that he would be working on the bill’s content during the week of April 8, 2019.

Over the past year, states have led the way in passing gun control, with red flag laws being the flagship legislation gun controllers have rallied around.

The federal government has trailed behind, although it did pass Fix-NICS, which expanded the current national database system, and the Justice Department did ban bump stocks by bureaucratic fiat.

With Lindsey Graham getting behind red flag gun confiscation, the federal government is likely going to embark on a significant push towards gun control. Graham’s bill would provide federal grants to states with red flag gun confiscation laws on the books.

The South Carolina Senator told Buzzfeed, “I’m seeking to incentivize states to produce extreme risk protective order legislation that has ample due process but also is meaningful in protecting the public from somebody who is dangerous.”

No Compromise gun rights organizations like Gun Owners of America have stood strong against Graham’s efforts to push red flag gun confiscation laws.

BLP reported on GOA Legislative Counsel Michael Hammond’s opposition to red flag gun confiscation orders.

In Hammond’s view the Graham-Blumenthal proposal would have pro-gun states subsidizing anti-gun states to carry out gun confiscation.

There are 14 such states. And except for Florida, which was cowed into gun confiscation by a near-riot of Parkland kids, and a 1999 Indiana statute, the remaining 13 states are the bluest, most anti-gun states in the country. Thus, S. 7 and S. 506 would be a massive transfer of an unspecified number of tax dollars from Republican pro-Second Amendment states — to states that are moving heaven and earth to destroy the Second Amendment.

Dudley Brown, the President of the National Association for Gun Rights, sees red flag laws as an invitation for potential law enforcement abuse:

They [Law enforcement] can literally come to your house at 2 in the morning. Yes, they can knock on the door. Sometimes they don’t knock. Sometimes they use a battering ram to open the door.

Despite warnings from pro-gun activists, the D.C. political class insists on pushing red flag laws forward.

WTF: Border Wall Construction Crew is Busted for Smuggling from Mexico in Texas

Published

on

According to a report form Breitbart News, Border Patrol agents tasked with patrolling the Rio Grande City Station spotted a pickup truck close to Rio Grande in Fronton on July 20, 2020.

The agents witnessed the vehicle parking close to a new wall construction site. A number of individuals were spotted putting items onto the back of the truck and then driving off toward Highway 83.

Then, the vehicle turned east and started heading toward Roma, Texas. The agents eventually carried out a traffic stop on a yellow and black Ford F-250.

The suspect did not comply with the stop and started fleeing on foot south on Lincoln Avenue and headed towards the border. Jaeson Jones of Breitbart noted that this “common tactic is known as a ‘bailout.’”

Agents saw the driver dive right into the Rio Grande and swim his way back into Mexico. Focusing their attention back at the F-250, agents arrested five people who were seen loading the truck. Law enforcement sources reported that these individuals were in the U.S. illegally.

The vehicle was allegedly registered to CMF Leasing in Fort Worth, Texas. There were decals on the truck that promoted Southwest Valley Constructors (SWVC), a firm that is currently contracted to build a border wall system.

On top of that, the investigation revealed that the driver was identified as a resident of Roma who was by employed SWVC, according to Border Patrol agents account of the incident.

Law enforcement sources informed Breitbart Texas that the driver has a prior history of smuggling activity.

On May 28, 2019, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) partnered with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to award a contract to construct about three miles of new bollard wall system on federally lands situated within the Rio Grande Valley Sector.

Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. received a contract for $42,860,000. In addition, Kiewit has an office located at the same address in Fort Worth where the F-250 is registered at.

The road to securing America’s border will not be easy.

America is dealing with a failed state in Mexico, so there will be plenty of bad actors looking to exploit America’s flawed border policies and undermine its sovereignty.

Thankfully, the U.S. has a presidential administration that is quickly working to tackle border security.
