The Dickey Amendment, which was a part of the 1996 omnibus spending bill, barred the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from using research to advocate for gun control.
In a compromise move with Democrats, Republican leaders in Congress have agreed to weaken this restriction in the upcoming omnibus spending bill, and clarify that the CDC is allowed to research gun violence. This research will allow the government, especially during an anti-gun administration to create anti-gun propaganda.
The anti-gun left has been well known for fabricating facts in order to advance their anti-gun agenda. Following the shooting in Parkland Florida, Everytown for Gun Safety published a fabricated claim that 18 school shootings occurred at that point in 2018. Despite the claim being widely recognized as false, it made it all the way to the mouth of former President Barack Obama, who used it to advocate for gun control measures.
Anti-gun government officials have used government funding to advocate for gun control in the past. While serving as United States Attorney for the District of Columbia, Eric Holder, who later served as Obama’s attorney general called for the government schools to “brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.”
The omnibus bill is expected to make it to President Trump’s desk, but the President has signaled that he may veto the bill if it does not include adequate funding for a wall on the southern border.
Party Turns Deadly in Mexico as 11 People are Gunned Down
Meanwhile, America’s border policies remain weak.
This past weekend, gunmen riding in a truck in the Mexican state of Jalisco shot up a party, which resulted in the deaths of 11 people, according to Mexican authorities.
In a statement, prosecutors revealed that police discovered the bodies of 10 men, filled with bullets, on the sidewalk right in front of a home in Tonald, a municipality in the Guadalajara metropolitan area.
Inside of the home, the body of a boy was found, while another boy and a woman received treatment at a local hospital.
For those unaware, Jalisco is one of the most economically prominent states in Mexico. In addition, it’s one of the main hubs of drug cartel violence given how it’s the de facto headquarters of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG).
Although Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador was elected in 2018 on a platform to clamp down on violence. However, Mexico is politically on the ropes, as murders go through the roof and cartels continue cutting out de facto statelets within Mexico.
At the end of 2020, one of the most notable casualties was former Jalisco Governor Aristoteles Sandoval. He was killed in a restaurant town in the tourist hub of Puerto Vallarta.
According to the Times of Oman, “Almost 100 murders are registered every day across the country of 126 million people, while more than 82,000 people have disappeared since the so-called war on drugs began in Mexico in 2006.”
Mexico is a mess and sadly, the Biden administration has no serious border policies to contain the instability that will inevitably make its way to the states. Instead, the Biden administration is more concerned with getting bogged down in quagmires in the Middle East.
