The militia shot some tourists for not stopping at a roadblock. Not good.

Mexico is a battleground with active state department warnings. People traveling in Mexico are taking their chances as much as they would be if traveling in Syria or Lybia.

Kind of hard to do anything when the police are corrupt, will agree. At this local .. many a good Man and Woman within local departments of LE. About everyone is armed, in this neck of the woods. Hope yours is well protected too.

“Owning a gun in Mexico is illegal!!”

Here is a Freeper thread from 03 on Edward Abbey the patron saint of of radical environmentalists. He had some novel ideas on things other than the environment.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/914504/posts

“Stop every campesino at our southern border, give him a handgun, a good rifle, and a case of ammunition, and send him home. He will know what to do with our gifts and good wishes. The people know who their enemies are.”

What I understand is that handguns and any firearm that uses a "military caliber" is not allowed for civilians. Anything else is registered and requires a permit

UPDATED:09:42 EST, 28 March 2013 Thousands of armed vigilantes have taken over a town in Mexico and arrested police officers after their 'commander' was killed and dumped in the street.

The self described 'community police' and arrested 12 officers and the town's former director of public security, who they accuse of taking part in the killing of Guadalupe Quinones Carbajal, 28, on behalf of a local organised crime group.

That is what needs to happen here when the confiscation of weapons begins. Those GIVING THE ORDERS have to be terminated immediately, one way or another, and the rest disarmed and reminded that "we know where you live".

The "organized crime group" in question of course, is the regime.

I think 2 million patriots marching on DC would scare the crap out of them.

Scaring the crap of them would only make them regroup stronger. They need to be arrested for crimes committed as public servants. No warnings, nothing.

My guide to the problems with Latin-American politics is Joseph Conrad’s greatest novel, Nostromo, which I first read in high school. I’ve yet to see anything to prove him wrong.

Revolution on the left, revolution on the right, populist takeover, dictatorship of privilege, capitalist exploitation. It all comes out pretty much the same in the end. It’s a sad thing to watch.

I think 2 million patriots marching on DC would scare the crap out of them. If you recall, the media lied, distorted and completely ignored the 500,000 who came to the 2010 TEA Party rally with Sarah and Glenn Beck...

I was at the 2009 9/12 rally, in which more than a million were in attendance. Many thousands of us crowded near the base of the Capitol steps, and I thought to myself, "If this gathering had the desire to do it, we could occupy these whole grounds for quite some time."

Speaks volumes as to the ammo shortages in various parts of the country (U.S.). The People are preparing through purchases and the government is preparing using the People’s money. The People and the government are smelling trouble. This spiral up on ammo prices is not going to end soon.

Importantly, despite all the bad Hollywood press, this is what real, honest to goodness, vigilantism looks like.

It isn’t a racist mob, stringing up black people on general principals. It isn’t even uncivil, in fact, it craves the restoration of order and the law, but has been thwarted by either a weak, or corrupt government, that often sides with the criminals against the people.

Most importantly, vigilantism often works.

Might have a problem if Texas sees a HUGE refugee flow if the war goes hot below the border. Inside the refugee flow there will be fighters being slipped in. Happens when least expected.

They have machine guns. No gun control in Mexico?

They took them from the guys who had been enforcing those *no military weapons* laws. Some of those *enforcers* no longer have any need for any things of this world.

“Vigilantism was given a bad rap by the crooks in the Establishment to protect themselves from righteous citizens.”

I watched westerns on TV in the 50s and 60s. I remember that many of the shows were anti-vigilante propaganda. I can’t remember a single show showing vigilantism in a favorable light.

Now, about your screen name...

“The militia shot some tourists for not stopping at a roadblock. Not good.”

They went to Mexico as tourists.
They either did nhot know about or failed to understand what was going on in the town.
They failed to stop when told to do so by armed men.

As Heinlein said, in nature the penalty for stupidity is death. The sentence is executed immediately, and there is no appeal.

They were lucky to come out of it with their lives.

So what are we supposed to do, just sink to our knees and wait for our beloved Constitution to be tossed on the ash heap of history by despicable scoundrels, curs, and pickle smoochers?

By the way, what you call “capitalism” is by its very nature non-exploitative. If exploitation is occurring, then there has been a distortion of the natural order of things.

See “The Fatal Conceit: The Errors of Socialism” by Hayek.

It depends where you are. Americans managed to pull together and, despite their flaws, create a free country. Latin America, on the other hand, seems unable to do so, with rare exceptions.

And forget about Muslims. There are decent and honorable individuals, but their religion and culture won’t allow a free society. In fact, Islam doesn’t believe in free will, unlike Christianity and Judaism.

I read this early this morning and thought about posting it and pinging you two.

Look at their weapons. Mostly shotguns and old bolt action single shot rifles from an indeterminate era. They will scavenge the AA area good and get some better firepower.

This is not an isolated item.
It won't be long until the Zapatistas and other 'revolutionary/communist/socialist' groups jump onto this movement and try to subvert it.

They are 'professionals' at doing things like that.
