On 3/24/20, a bunch of “experts” held a webinar about “gun violence” in the Americas. The objective? Blame the United States for all of the violence in Mexico, South America and Latin America. Here’s the hour long uploaded video of the webinar:
I’ll keep this short and to the point. What’s one of the goals of the webinar and panel of “experts”?
Right of the bat in the video (listen for yourself in the link), the goal is to blame the US for violence problems in countries south of us. They want to “frame” it as a “public health crisis”. Frame in that context means plan to do something, but what exactly are they trying to say? Luckily there’s a PDF of the webinar for easy reference:
Whole presentation right there should prove as BS and tainted, as that’s a child solider in Africa, not South America, and likely armed with a former Warsaw Pact or Chinese fully automatic AK (not an American made semi-auto) . Moving on:
Blah Blah Blah. It’s making it a financial cost issue for the money needed to combat that stuff. Now, where do they place the blame?
See that? They’re using the legal buying of firearms during the COVID-19 crisis as an excuse to create fear about gun violence! further, they are advocating for a ban on “high capacity“ magazines and talk about data in 2011. What was happening in 2011 when stuff was flooding into the lower Americas? Operation Fast & Furious lead by Obama’s Justice Department. Guns got away from them. One example:
There is just one of Obama’s DOJ allowing guns to “walk” in order to trace them back to cartels. People died because of that operation, including a US Border Patrol agent. Back to the webinar:
In conclusion, we have a bunch of blockheads trying to influence US law with recommendations that affect our rights because the southern Americas have a violence problem that grew quickly partially because of a botched ATF operation. They also are trying to link in “foreign” violence with the current increase in legal gun sales due to COVID-19. Lastly, we need to (according to them) allow migrants in and “challenge the narrative” because “we created the problem” and urge a FOREIGN GOVERNMENT to get involved in US policy regarding firearms laws.
