First consider that el presidente Phil Calderon wants a ban on U.S. Citizens' second amendment rights to own "assault weapons" [sic] because his country is a war zone:
"The violence in Mexico started to grow in 2006...which coincides with the lifting of the assault weapons ban," he said. "Today, these weapons are aimed not only at rival gangs but also at Mexican citizens and authorities.
"It is not the first time shots have been exchanged along the Texas-Mexico border. Since January of last year, DPS has tracked at least a dozen incidents of shots being fired from Mexico and into Texas, with U.S. officers shooting back in some cases."
So the facade our mainstream, globalist, corporate-owned media presents to the public is yet another self-serving pack of lies intended to con the American public deeper into a sense of FALSE SECURITY - that we must give up our rights to preserve our rights. But wait - there's more...
Using the techniques of the master prestidigator - while the left side of their mouth spreads the lie that guns in the hands of the public are a problem for Mexico - we find that the opposite is true. Consider this article where we learn of even more federal skullduggery regarding arms dealing:
“This is not a discovery process of what happened. We know what happened. We know that this Administration at the highest levels approved a process that allowed thousands of high powered weapons, basically AK-47s and M-16 look alikes, to go to the worst of the worst on both sides of the borders.”
There are many great sources of information available - it is up to YOU - the CITIZEN - to become well-informed -ignorance is no excuse for breaking the law - and it is no excuse for shirking YOUR responsibility of keeping your own government "tied down with the chains of the Constitution" (TJ).
Please examine the links in the left column of this blog - there are excellent radio broadcasts - excellent websites - all committed to the fundamental foundation of our liberty - an informed citizenry.
As the saying goes: "You can lead a horse to water - but you can't make her drink."
You know where the water is. I know you're thirsty.
