Yahoo News reports that the rapper Killer Mike says that he does not trust presidential candidates Kamala Harris and Cory Booker on the issue of gun control.
Killer Mike, whose real name is Michael Render, told Yahoo News “I don’t trust black leadership that wants to de-arm black people.”
Booker has become the posterboy for radical gun control on the Democratic side of the aisle.
He cites gun violence in his Newark community as his primary motivation for taking up the issue.
Booker told CNN host Jake Tapper in May, “In my community, kids fear fireworks on the Fourth of July because they sound like gunshots.”
He added, “In communities across the country, from Newark to Charlotte, from San Diego to Chicago, and everywhere in between, Americans are being killed and families are being torn apart. We must do better.”
However, Render has a different view on the issue.
As a member of the National African American Gun Association and a firm believer in the right to bear arms, he has pushed for black firearms ownership as a civil rights issue. He contends that many of America’s violence issues could be prevented if gun ownership was equally respected in America from the time of its founding all the way up until the present.
Render argued that “If everyone owned guns from day one, it would have been a lot harder to commit acts like slavery and genocide on Native Americans.”
The rapper then cited the case of the book Guns, Germs and Steel to demonstrate his point:
“If you read the book ‘Guns, Germs and Steel,’ it kind of explains to you, you know, why a lot of the wars indigenous people lost was because people came with superior technology and guns.”
Render understands how gun control laws negatively affect African Americans.
Render declared, “Gun laws affect black people first and worst.”
He then cited investigative journalist and civil rights leader Ida B. Wells who was famous for saying that “a Winchester rifle should have a place of honor in every black home, and it should be used for that protection which the law refuses to give” in the face of lynchings that African Americans were confronting throughout the late 19th century.
The history of black gun ownership is generally glossed over these days by public schools.
But it has a tradition grounded in liberty and self-defense against nefarious actors.
Sadly, this kind of history has fallen by the wayside during the last few decades.
Nevertheless, groups such as Black Guns Matter have helped revive this tradition and are opening up new conversations in urban areas where pro-gun activists have not succeeded in the past.
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.
