I thought it was against the law for Mexican citizens to own guns.
Almost a death sentence.
No... only the "ordinary citizen" should decide if he himself has a "need" to hold a semi auto rifle with a standard capacity magazine. Im tired of other people saying they will decide if you have such a "need".
If our borders had been controlled in any meaningful way, the numbers fighting on the side of these guys would be much greater because escape wouldn’t have been an option.
Out in the old west criminals were running rampant and the law either did not exist or was incapable of controlling it.
Vigilance Committees were formed and after a few hangings things got back to where decent people could live in peace.
Nothing frightens todays Law Enforcement Community like the threat of a Vigilante committee being formed. They will come down on the Vigilante Committee faster than they will the criminal, because in many cases the Criminals and the Police are working together. If they are not working together the Police still have a fear of losing their powers or their jobs.
In Mexico the Police there are no better than the criminals. They are either frightened or paid off. Armed citizens can straighten out this mess fast if they organise.
Of course trials become pretty much a joke as hanging by Vigilantes don’t usually have trials, and lawyesr don’t get the guilty off with technicalities or plea bargains, and prisoners are never taken because Vigilantes do not have jails.
In the United States today we don’t have much Vigilante action, it isn’t needed-—Yet.
But an armed citizenry always has that option.
That option is one thing the Government wants to take away from us. Once that option is gone, many other options leave with it.. Citizens are no longer in charge. The Government is in charge.
