In the past week, relations between China and the U.S. have deteriorated as a result of allegations that China is stealing trade secrets from the U.S.

The FBI declared that the Chinese government is behaving like “an organized criminal syndicate” for its far-reaching efforts to commit theft in cyberspace and stealing American trade secrets in addition to the hacking of American trade secrets on top of Wuhan virus research.

According to State Department spokesperson Morgan Ortagus, China has allegedly stolen at least $1 billion in total research from the United States.

She also pointed to the Chinese consulate in Houston, which the U.S. instructed to be shut down and later “cease all operations and events,” as being “the epicenter” of the research that is allegedly being stolen.

Beijing has promised to retaliate with punitive measures but nothing concrete has surfaced so far.

China’s rise has been one of the biggest stories of the past 40 years and how the U.S. will handle it has yet to be seen.

Instead of trying to pursue regime change, the U.S. should focus on soft power measures, using punitive tariffs, and restricting migration from the country in order to change its behavior and keep it in check in a realistic fashion.

Gun sales have boomed all across America. And it’s not just the Red states. Blue states like Minnesota have also witnessed an increase in the number of concealed carry permits issued. 

According to Valley News Live, over 96,000 permits were issued in 2020, which represented the highest number of permits issued since carry permits became legal in 2003. Furthermore, 2020’s numbers represented a twofold increase from 2019 in the number of permits issued. 

Tom Knighton of Bearing Arms noted that roughly “400,000 permits have been issued in total in a state of just over 5.6 million people.”

The Valley News Live piece actually conceded that the increase in permits issued was largely the result of a “ rise in violent crime in the Twin Cities and the civil unrest that followed the death of George Floyd.”

Minneapolis was the epicenter of social unrest after the death of George Floyd in late May 2020. With calls to defund the police and irresponsible political leadership that refused to decisively crack down on crime, Minnesotans began to take matters into their own hands.

Gun owners are ultimately the most effective first responders in times of crisis and overall breakdowns of social order. Minnesota’s gun laws are actually quite strict, which has earned it dismal rankings in Guns & Ammo magazine’s rankings for Best States for Gun Owners (39th place) and Best States for Concealed Carry (37th place). Regardless of the sub-optimal gun policies, Minnesotans still instinctively understand the importance of the right to carry.

2020 was a big year for gun sales and showed that the right to bear arms still has a massive constituency of people that can be targeted and activated for future occasions. Serious Republican campaigns should recognize this trend and make targeting gun owners a major priority throughout their get out the vote programs.
