“The police don’t need you and they expect the same.” Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues - Bob Dylan
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.
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.
“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
I was put off by them shooting at tourist too. You changed my mind on that. Touristicos en Mexico son muy estupidos.
Shooting the tourists isn’t right but its a dangerous place with a lot of itchy trigger fingers.
It’s a warzone. Non-combatants blundering around there should have expected to be shot at.
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.
Yup. If you go to the home of trouble, expect to find it.
Remember what we did in our film “Amigos, Amigos, Amigos”?
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.
Right to Possess Firearms
In Mexico, the right to private gun ownership is guaranteed by law
Prohibited Firearms and Ammunition
In Mexico, civilians are not allowed to possess military grade firearms intended for Army, Navy and Air Force use, including: .357 Magnum revolvers and those greater than .38 calibre, handguns greater than 9mm, rifles and carbines of .223, 7mm, 7.62 and .30 calibres, automatic firearms, or shotguns with barrels shorter than 635mm or greater than 12 gauge
Yeah! Freedom, armed population = peace and lawfulness.
Now here you have your basic Oh $hit situation...
Looks like the Mexicans have had damn well enough.
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.
I remember reading about this a long time ago. Good history lesson.
I think the last time this happened was about 1900-1920 in Mexico.
If they do that, all of their la raza compadres further from the border will be in a very bad position, as Americans are likely to respond in kind.
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.
>>we’re going to take 5 to 10 million Mexicans and they are going into Dallas, into El Paso, into Houston, into New Mexico, into San Diego, and each one will have embedded in his mind the idea of killing ten Americans.”<<
Have these idiots ever seen what a B-52 and some A-10’s can do in thirty minutes?
If we arrested them for treason, would the cops protect them?
IF you have a crossbow it could be not long before you have an unregistered gun.. just sayin..
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.
Vaya con Dios.
True. But vicious animals frequently travel in packs.
There's a sequel out. Like the Three Stooges remake, they've got new actors:
“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”
Perhaps the first thing to do is march on the media.
“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.
“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. Its a sad thing to watch.”
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.
Watch out D.C.! Pretty soon you’ll see us crossing the Potomac. Keep your eye on the horizon.
Gadzooks! Don't these people know... Mexico doesn't allow its citizens to own guns?
I went to Mexico once and they took away... my bullet!
True. But vicious animals frequently travel in packs.
Catch one of them while taking a leak..
Send him on a meet and greet with Jesus..
I’m thinking that might not be anywhere as easy as that gentleman assumes.
Yes, it does sound very much like our executive branch con artists who are as corrupt as any gang of Mexicans.
This is more about citizens rising up against corrupt government than it is vigilantism.
