After the El Paso massacre, which left 22 people dead, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) advised that the U.S. review its gun control laws.
Bloomberg News reports that AMLO wants the U.S. to reconsider its gun policies.
At a news conference, AMLO stated “We are very respectful of what other governments decide, but we think that these unfortunate events in the U.S. should prompt reflection, analysis and the decision to control the indiscriminate sale of guns.”
He also claimed that both Republicans and Democrats have not paid much attention to this issue.
This comment is rather ironic when considering that AMLO’s government has not taken a side on the Venezuelan presidential crisis. AMLO justified this by claiming that Mexico’s constitution calls for “respect and non-intervention regarding the affairs of other countries.”
Given El Paso’s geography along the border, there are plenty of Mexican Americans and Mexican nationals living in that area. Six Mexicans were wounded during this shooting.
After news of the El Paso murder’s manifesto and the anti-immigrant sentiments it contained broke out, the Mexican political class has exploited this crisis to score political points.
Mexico is rife with violence and has some of the strictest gun control legislation in the Western Hemisphere. Although many no compromise gun rights activists complain about America’s federal gun control laws, Mexico’s gun control laws are much more draconian.
Those wanting to acquire guns in Mexico are required to submit references and prove that they have legal sources of income. Additionally, they must provide photographs and be fingerprinted.
Even with all these hoops, Mexican criminals are able to easily get their hands on firearms. Due to the gap in gun ownership, law-abiding Mexicans have been victimized by powerful drug cartels. Based on reports from The Sun, 94 homicides occur on a daily basis in Mexico.
Rapper Lil Wayne Breaks the Silence on George Floyd’s Death
On May 29, 2020, Lil Wayne commented on the death of George Floyd.
The controversial death involved Minneapolis Police Department officer Derek Chauvin placing his knee on Floyd’s neck as he was handcuffed on the ground.
“I think when we see these situations, I think we also have to understand that we have to get very specific. … And what I mean by that is we have to stop viewing it with such a broad view, meaning we have to stop placing the blame on the whole force and the whole everybody or a certain race or everybody with a badge,” Wayne remarked during an IG Live chat with rapper Fat Joe.
Wayne added: “We have to actually get into who that person is. And if we want to place the blame on anybody, it should be ourselves for not doing more than what we think we’re doing.”
On top of that, the New Orleans rapper explained why he doesn’t always go public on these political issues.
“What else am I gonna do after that?” Wayne said to Fat Joe. “Some people put a tweet out and they think they did something. Some people wear a shirt and they think they did something. What you gonna do after that? Did you actually help the person? Did you actually help the family? Did you actually go out there and do something? So, if I ain’t about to do all that, then I ain’t about to do nothing. I’ll pray for ya.”
Wayne shared more of his thoughts regarding how people should process information during times of controversy.
“It’s actually learning about it,” Wayne commented. “What we need to do is we need to learn about it more. If we wanna scream about something, know what we’re screaming about. If we wanna protest about something, know what we’re protesting about. Because if we wanna get into it, there’s a bunch of facts that we think we know that we don’t know. … We scream about things that, sometimes, they really ain’t true.”
Wayne and Joe’s full discussion can be viewed below:
Riots have spread to other cities across the U.S., which included Minneapolis, where Floyd was killed. On May 29, Derek Chauvin received charges of murder and manslaughter in the killing of Floyd.
Derek Chauvin officially charged in death of #GeorgeFloyd with third-degree murder and manslaughter.
