Mother of Woman Killed in Charlottesville Believes Democrat Gun Grabbers are Going Too Far

Published

on

The mother of Heather Heyer, the Virginia woman killed at the Charlottesville rally in 2017, is a gun owner and believes some of the proposed gun control measures in the Virginia General Assembly might be pushing the limits of rational legislation.

Susan Bro sent a message to gun rights activists considering violence at a gun rights rally at the Virginia Capitol in Richmond: “We don’t need your help.”

“I grew up with guns,” Bro said to CNN on Monday before the protestors rallied around the capitol. “I believe in common sense gun measures, but not extreme measures.”

Democrats scored big in the 2019 elections and won total control of the Virginia government. For them, such a victory gives them a mandate to introduce legislation such as handgun purchasing limits, universal background checks, and “red flag” gun confiscation orders.

Other gun control proposals include “assault weapons” bans, however, some moderate Democrats have expressed concerns about how far some of their radical colleagues want to go with gun control.

Bro stated that she thinks some of the gun control agenda items are “a bit extreme,” but noted that it had some good proposals. She believes that it is important that the debate be conducted in a calm and non-violent manner.

Authorities originally feared violent confrontations in the days leading up to the Richmond rally, which prompted Governor Ralph Northam to declare a state of emergency,

Bro encouraged potential troublemakers to stay away from Richmond

“If you are there to actually speak with representatives, to have your voice heard, to have calm conversations about what’s happening, by all means be there,” Bro declared. “But understand that it may be dangerous today because there are foolish people who want to stir up more hate.”

Bro now heads up the Heather Heyer Foundation, which runs a scholarship program commemorating the young young civil rights activist who “dedicated her life to promoting equal rights for all people.”

It’s good to see some voices of moderation chime in these discussions. What is generally heard among most gun control proponents are radical calls for gun control overreach and even bans on commonly-held weapons such as the AR-15.

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.
