Transnationalism occurs in many forms. In this case, it has appeared in the form of a request from the Senate in Mexico to the US Senate to create a “registry” of gun owners in US states that border Mexico, presumably for Mexican authorities to ask US authorities to access to attempt to trace guns used in crimes.
This has serious implications for US citizens exercising their constitutional 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms, as well as US citizens’ right to privacy…
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.
