Dem Senator Launches Crackdown On Americans Rights To Stop Border Crisis With Sneaky Bill

Democrat Senator Dick Durbin is blaming American gun laws on cartel violence.

First of all, let’s not forget it was the Obama administration’s “Operations Fast And Furious” that was caught sending at least 2,000 weapons to Mexico.

In 2016, during a raid on “El Chapo,” authorities were shocked when they recovered a .50 caliber rifle that was tracked back to the program (remember this as you read the rest of the post).

In a statement from the US Senate Committee on the Judiciary, Durbin proposed his bill called the “Stop Arming Cartels Act.”

Durbin wants to regulate existing .50 caliber rifles under the National Firearms Act.

To be clear, a Democrat President allowed .50 caliber rifles in Mexico, and now a Democrat Senator wants to impose regulations on Americans who lawfully purchased the firearm.

“At the hands of the NRA and the gun lobby, our country’s lax gun laws have created a deadly, vicious cycle of firearms trafficking that’s riddled with violence, illicit narcotics, and chaos. Our gun laws and gun industry practices fuel an iron river of firearms trafficking that supplies Mexican drug cartels and other criminal elements in the region, and it’s time to cut off the iron river at its source. By implementing stronger gun safety laws in America, we can disarm cartels and help prevent the violence, drug trafficking, and irregular migration associated with cartel power and violence at home and abroad. I urge my colleagues to support this critical piece of legislation,” said Durbin.

Here’s a quote from the Senate Judiciary:

In 2019, Durbin urged the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to update its reports on efforts to combat firearms trafficking from the United States to Mexico, Belize, and Guatemala and expand the report to include El Salvador and Honduras. The report revealed that 40 percent of firearms recovered in those countries came from the United States. Based on the immense value of that report, Durbin joined colleagues this year in successfully pressing the GAO to expand the study further to include the Caribbean.

Wouldn’t it be fun to find out how many of the weapons recovered could be traced back to the Fast and Furious controversy?
