TRAGIC: Former NBA Player Breaks Down After Being Convicted for Violating Gun Control Laws

Published

The Daily Mail reports that retired NBA point guard Sebastian Telfair had an emotional breakdown after he was sentenced to more than three years in prison for gun possession charges.

On August 12, 2019, the former NBA player erupted in tears after the verdict was announced.

According to law enforcement reports, officers discovered three loaded handguns, a gas-powered submachine gun, extended magazines, ammunition and a ballistic vest inside of his vehicle during a traffic stop in 2017.

Telfair told the court that he was being punished for a “victimless crime.”

Telfair begged the court to cut him some slack:

Please don’t take me from society right now. I am 34. I can go play in China for six years and take care of my family. I’m waiting for my daughter right now to get her period. Real mental illness because I wasn’t around… She hasn’t even gotten her period yet.

He added, “Put a gun in his hand and fight for us n—- … I go to the gun store. I got an American Express.”

Throughout his basketball career, Telfair was journeyman. He played for nine NBA teams and three Chinese teams during his 13-year professional career.

Telfair was driving a Ford F-150 accompanied by a friend early in the morning on June 11, 2017, when the two were pulled over because the truck did not have its headlights on.

The officers reported that they smelled marijuana burning inside the car. As a result, they ordered the passengers out of the car and arrested them before carrying out their search.

Telfair claimed that he had a Florida concealed carry license for the weapons but did not possess a license to carry in New York. New York has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation.

The former NBA player claims that he didn’t know the guns were in the car because at that time he was going through a divorce and paid movers to put some of his possessions in his truck and take them from Florida to New York.

Telfair also questioned whether the officers lied about the marijuana smell in his truck. He asserted that the drugs weren’t his and he even accused his friend of lying about them.

According to an internal affairs investigation, the officers who arrested Telfair were correct about the weed smell, which gave them probable cause to search Telfair’s car.

Telfair is the cousin of former NBA All-Star Stephon Marbury. He played 10 NBA seasons with nine different teams from 2004 to 2013, which included the Boston Celtics, Phoenix Suns, Oklahoma City Thunder and Toronto Raptors.

Telfair also played three seasons for professional teams in China.

The former NBA player’s case shows that numerous states like New York still have stiff gun laws that punish otherwise peaceful individuals.

Mexican Government Reported that Nearly 80,000 People are Still Missing

Mexico Spirals Out of Control While Joe Biden Promises Mass Amnesty

According to a report released by the Mexican government on November 25, 2020, over 79,500 people are still missing in Mexico.

This comes in the backdrop of Mexico’s infamous military offensive against drug cartels in 2006. Since the erstwhile president Felipe’s military offensive against drug cartels, the number of missing people in Mexico has skyrocketed.

Before 2006, there were 1,500 disappearances in Mexico, per statistics that Deputy Human Rights Minister Alejandro Encina put forward. Since July, there have been roughly 6,300 new cases reported.

Encina observed, however, that the number of disappearances have dropped since 2019.

Mexico is notorious for its alarming levels of violence, which is largely perpetuated by organized crime. In 2019, 34,582 people were murdered. So far in 2020, 26,431 people have been murdered from January to September. 

Encinas claimed that Mexican authorities have discovered 1,399 mass graves in Mexico over the past two years. Of the 2,290 bodies discovered in the graves, 879 have been identified.

Mexico is not in good shape and that’s putting it lightly. America at least recognized this with Donald Trump in office. Trump was elected on an America First platform which stressed tough policies on the border and was not willing tolerate mass immigration like his predecessors.

Sadly, the apparent president-Joe Biden is more concerned with trying to pass mass amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens and freezing deportations for 100 days.

Securing our Southern border is a recognition of the cold, hard truth that Mexico is falling apart, and it’s institutional and social rot could potentially make its way up north. Much to America’s chagrin, the next occupant of the White House will likely not recognize that. Should fraud allegations fail to invalidate the current results of  the 2020 elections, America First patriots must act accordingly and make immigration a massive issue during the 2022 midterms, both in the primaries and general election.
