“Mexico To Ask U.S. Senate To Create Registry Of Gun Owners In Border States…”
Sovereignty to die a death of a thousand cuts. From the Blaze:
Mexican lawmakers will ask the U.S. Senate to create a registry of all commercialized firearms in border states, which includes California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. Mexico says it will make it easier to trace guns used in violent attacks.
The measure was reportedly approved on January 9 by Mexico’s Permanent Commission, a government entity that meets when Mexico’s Senate and the Chamber of Deputies is in recess. Gun owners in Arizona are calling the proposal “foolish” and an “invasion of privacy.”
This is, of course, preparatory for the much broader UN small arms treaty dictates — itself a move to weaken state sovereignty while keeping it putatively in place. Not to mention a move toward a national gun registry, which is the only viable enforcement mechanism for “universal background checks” that are now being pushed by a “bi-partisan” Senate group led by Chuck Schumer and John McCain, two names that immediately spring to mind when on thinks of “those most likely to protect or individual liberties.”
If we were living i in any other time in US history, the answer to such an ludicrous and presumptuous request would be to direct Mexican lawmakers to act like a deluxe beef and bean burrito and get stuffed. Then smother themselves in tasty guacamole.
Today, though, we’ll hear about partnerships and “common sense” solutions, which evidently include straw purchases orchestrated by our own governmental agencies that send “assault-style” weapons to Mexican drug cartels.
This is a country that knows collapse is coming, and its ruling elite is doing anything it can to insulate itself against the widespread pain, revolt, and desperation that is somewhere over the Utopian rainbow.
And it’s forging alliances with other corrupt totalitarian states.
Maybe this is the reason the Muslim Brotherhood has become so popular with our ruling class. They’re taking notes on propaganda and oppression from those who’ve been so successful at it in the past.
After all, you don’t create a pure paradise without tramping the bad apples into mash. Just ask Bill Ayers.
