After Oklahoma City Mayor David Holt made an announcement on Twitter that he signed a referendum petition to repeal the Constitutional Carry law passed by the Legislature earlier this year, Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum has remained silent on the issue.
The Tulsa World reports that they did not receive a response from Bynum after they reached out to him on Thursday, August 22, 2019.
Bynum posted a message on his Facebook page later in the afternoon stating that “some things don’t fit in sound bites.”
The Tulsa mayor claims that he ran for mayor promising to bring the city together to confront its biggest challenges.
Bynum wrote, “So if you are in a job like mine, you focus on the things you can really make a difference on — and you bring together people who otherwise disagree on the other stuff to fix those things within your purview.” He added, “You sacrifice your right to express your opinion on every issue in service to the job you’ve been given.”
The Tulsa mayor is well aware that some of his friends get frustrated by how he doesn’t comment on national politics, add his name group letters to the U.S. Senate or “jump into the fray on state initiative petitions.”
“As a citizen, you should feel free to do all of these things,” Bynum declared. “As a citizen, I have opinions on all of them too. But as mayor, I have a responsibility to pull our city together so we can move it forward.”
The previous week, Bynum said that he did not sign a U.S. Conference of Mayors letter to the U.S. Senate calling for immediate legislative action on gun control because he does not sign group letters..
In a tweet on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 , Holt did not express his position on Constitutional Carry but threw his support behind the referendum petition to repeal it.
The Oklahoma Supreme court recently weighed in on the Oklahoma Constitutional Carry repeal petition. It declared that the petition organizers such as Democratic State Representative Jason Lowe must now count the number of petitions that they submitted to the Oklahoma Secretary of State.
For this petition to be put on the ballot, they need slightly under 60,000 petition signatures.
A repeal of Constitutional Carry would set Oklahoma back in terms of its overall gun policies. It is already ranked among the most pro-gun states according to Guns & Ammo magazine, which puts it in 6th place for best states for gun owners.
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.
