Following the horrific shooting in Parkland, Florida, the so-called “pro-gun” state legislature passed a massive gun control package into law. In response, hundreds of pro-gun Floridians are flooding the State Capitol building in Tallahassee this Saturday to show their support for the Second Amendment.
The gun control measures signed into law by Governor Rick Scott last month raised the age to purchase a rifle from 18 to 21, banned “bump stocks,” and imposed a three day waiting, among other gun control measures.
The event, organized by The National Constitutional Coalition of Patriotic Americans (NCCPA), is set to occur from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM on Saturday, April 14th. At the time of this article being published, nearly 500 people had confirmed they will attend, with an additional 1,200 marking down their interest in the event.
Big League Politics reached out to the lead organizer, Matt Johnson, the founder of Patriots United for Freedom. Johnson told us that the overall goal of the rally is “to show that we too as voters, legal gun owners, and law abiding citizens have a voice.” Johnson also made it clear that unlike other recent anti-gun events, they can “organize without the help from Hollywood or even the NRA.”
The event is slated to have a number of speakers, including politicians, candidates for public office, and Second Amendment activists. We wish the organizers of this rally nothing but the best, and encourage anyone in Florida to attend the rally.
Party Turns Deadly in Mexico as 11 People are Gunned Down
Meanwhile, America’s border policies remain weak.
This past weekend, gunmen riding in a truck in the Mexican state of Jalisco shot up a party, which resulted in the deaths of 11 people, according to Mexican authorities.
In a statement, prosecutors revealed that police discovered the bodies of 10 men, filled with bullets, on the sidewalk right in front of a home in Tonald, a municipality in the Guadalajara metropolitan area.
Inside of the home, the body of a boy was found, while another boy and a woman received treatment at a local hospital.
For those unaware, Jalisco is one of the most economically prominent states in Mexico. In addition, it’s one of the main hubs of drug cartel violence given how it’s the de facto headquarters of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG).
Although Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador was elected in 2018 on a platform to clamp down on violence. However, Mexico is politically on the ropes, as murders go through the roof and cartels continue cutting out de facto statelets within Mexico.
At the end of 2020, one of the most notable casualties was former Jalisco Governor Aristoteles Sandoval. He was killed in a restaurant town in the tourist hub of Puerto Vallarta.
According to the Times of Oman, “Almost 100 murders are registered every day across the country of 126 million people, while more than 82,000 people have disappeared since the so-called war on drugs began in Mexico in 2006.”
Mexico is a mess and sadly, the Biden administration has no serious border policies to contain the instability that will inevitably make its way to the states. Instead, the Biden administration is more concerned with getting bogged down in quagmires in the Middle East.
