On May 11, 2020, the National Association for Gun Rights launched a new TV ad exposing Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls for his anti-Second Amendment rhetoric.
The TV ad can be viewed here.
In the ad, Nehls is seen criticizing the lawful carry of firearms inside of a church.
He told audience members at a Chamber of Commerce meeting the following:
I don’t know if any of you have a hogleg [gun] strapped to your side, but you’re in a church and you should know better.
Nehls’ made these comments in 2016, before Jack Wilson heroically shot and killed an armed assailant in the West Freeway Church of Christ in December 2019.
“Mr. Wilson’s fast thinking and accurate response stopped a would-be mass shooting and saved the lives of innocent worshippers. So why on earth does Nehls want to leave you defenseless as you worship God with your friends and family?” stated NAGR President Dudley Brown.
During his anti-gun tirade, Nehls also attacked Texas’ open carry law and threatened to use his power as Sheriff to maintain ‘gun-free’ zones aka criminal safe spaces. NAGR asserts that this position is “more like that of Beto O’Rourke than a Texas Republican.” In the ad, an image of Sheriff Nehls transforms into O’Rourke, who made waves for saying “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15!”
“We hope Sheriff Nehls will take this as a wakeup call and publicly apologize for his anti-gun rant,” stated Brown. “We hope he’ll reverse course because the last thing Congress needs now is another gun control apologist with an R next to his name.”
Troy Nehls is facing off against candidate Kathaleen Wall in the July 14th GOP runoff election. Wall returned the NAGR candidate survey 100% pro-gun and received an endorsement from NAGR copy.
The TV ads started to be aired on May 11th in Houston TV markets on the Fox News Channel.
The TV ad can also be viewed on NAGR’s YouTube page.
NAGR has positioned itself as a no compromise gun lobby which is willing to take establishment Republican to task during election and legislative seasons.
Its attack on Nehls is very much in line with its no compromise ethos.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
