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.”
My guess is that even if the Feds ignore this gambit – and with RINO-statist squishes like McCain “defending” our liberties (stab us in the back again, John!), that is no sure thing, the government of my own state, California, will be more than happy to heed the call and kiss the Mexican liberal fascist ass.
To fight crime, you know. I doubt they’ll register and report the firearms peddled by the BATF into Mexico, though.
