After the El Paso and Dayton shootings, Crenshaw expressed his horror at these atrocities.
But he took it a step further.
In a tweet he stated that “The solutions aren’t obvious, even if we pretend they are. But we must try. Let’s start with the TAPS Act. Maybe also implement state “red flag” laws, or gun violence restraining orders. Stop them before they can hurt someone. https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/838/text”

Crenshaw’s endorsement of The Threat Assessment, Prevention, and Safety (TAPS) Act reveals his establishment colors.
BLP previously reported on the TAPS Act introduced by Congressman Brian Babin (TX-36) in the House of Representatives and Senator Marco Rubio (FL) in the Senate:
It does the following:
Standardizes and provides a behavioral threat assessment and management process across the Federal government. Provides states the training, resources, and support needed to stand up community-based, multi-disciplinary behavioral threat assessment and management units. Recognizes that behavioral threat assessment and management processes must become part of the culture and fabric of contemporary law enforcement. Urges that this is a matter of national security – if we act now and work together, we can save lives.
Harmless title notwithstanding, many believe that the TAPS Act would potentially function as a pre-crime bill.
David Leach of The Strident Conservative argues that Marco Rubio’s version of the TAPS Act, S.265, would “encourage law enforcement to give EVERYONE a personal threat assessment (adults and children) and single out those they deem as future threats.” From there, this information could later be used to “stop dangerous individuals before they can commit an act of violence.”
Mark Angelides of Liberty Nation also commented on Babin’s statement on the TAPS Act and the implications it has for civil liberties:
But what result would be measured as a success? If the individual has committed no crime, why should they have their privacy invaded and their life chances hindered with a government record deeming them to be “threat”? If the individual in question has committed a crime, then there are already laws in place to deal with them.
This push for TAPS Act and “red flag” style legislation is part of a new wave of gun control that is making rounds across the nation.
With Lindsey Graham already working to push red flag bills again, it’s only a matter of time before this legislation comes to a vote in Congress.
Gun owners will have to be ready to fight back.

MORE BLOOD: 19 Killed in Mexican Gun Fight Connected to El Chapo’s Cartel
Last weekend, a gun fight between Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s former drug cartel and a rival cartel resulted in the deaths of 19 people in northern Mexico.
The encounter started late on April 3, 2020 when cartel members connected to El Chapo’s Sinaloa cartel were caught in a gun fight with drug traffickers from the Juarez cartel and other criminal syndicates in the state of Chihuahua, according to Mexican police reports.
The following day, authorities discovered 18 bodies at the scene of the violent exchange in the town of Madera. Another man that was wounded died shortly in a hospital, according to law enforcement sources.
Mexican soldiers were sent to the area and discovered several weapons, which included two grenades.
Back in January 2019, a Brooklyn federal judge sentenced El Chapo to life in prison.
Since El Chapo’s sentence, there has been an enormous power vacuum in Mexico’s Drug War, as numerous cartels vie for power after El Chapo left the picture.
Mexico’s government has proven to be incompetent on the matter of public security so cartels will continue to have their way in the country.
For that reason, the U.S. should proactively seal off its border and restrict migration from Mexico.
Not taking action on border security will only leave America susceptible to Mexico’s problems, which will only spillover to the U.S. if the borders remain porous.
