Maybe Mexico should build a wall on their Guatemalan border

I realize I've written versions of this post before, but after the President's press conference Tuesday I'm compelled to write this again. March 15th The Los Angeles Times had an article about the weaponry that the drugthugs are using in Mexico. The article mentions not only the standard AK-47, which not EVEN THE SEMI-AUTO versions are made in the United States. They were a Warsaw Pact weapon, meaning COMMUNIST. Since Central America had several marxist rebellions during the 1980's the full-auto AK-47's would be in huge supply. They also mentioned the AR-15's, While Gene Stoner designed the AR-15 as a select fire (full-auto/three-round burst/semi-auto) and when adopted by the military became the M-16, the civilian version of the AR-15 is NOT CAPABLE of full-aut0. For civilians in this country to get a select fire M-16 it will run TWELVE THOUSAND DOLLARS, sign away their Forth Amendment Rights, and go through a background check that makes the NSA phone captures look like getting carded at a bar.
The article mentioned Barrett .50 Cals. Here's the thing the US government either gave or sold the Mexican Government Barretts and M-16's.

There are somethings about the AK-47's that make them an attractive weapon, including they don't jam and they will cost about $500 where as the semi-auto AR-15 will be anywhere between $800-$4000. I have a hard time believing that a druglord would be willing to pay some American $12 grand and I have a hard time believing someone that goes through the long process to get a class three weapon would sell, especially since the batf can check 24-7-365 if the aforementioned weapon is where it is supposed to be. Get a Superior weapon, of higher caliber for $500 or $1000 for a semi-auto rifle...I know what I would do.

Further in the article it talks about how the druglords have gotten their hands on grenades, rocket propelled grenades, and heavy machine guns. EVEN with a Class Three licence an American citizen CANNOT possess an RPG. So, where are these weapons coming from? Again, they are coming from south of Mexico. The President is trying to re-instate the Assault Weapons Ban, but no Assault Rifles were banned last time because they fell under the National Firearms Act of 1934, the only ones that were 'banned' were those that looked like their military cousins. An assault rifle by definition is a select fire rifle with an intermediate round. The first assault rifle was the Sturmgavier 44.

Those of us that complained about what was occurring with ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION and the drug war in Mexico were called racists or nativists, so why isn't the President being called a racist now?
I don't know what bugs me more, the fact that this President is willing to subvert our sovereignty (which President Bush did when he didn't do anything when we were worried about the drug war down their three years ago.) or that he is totally misrepresenting the truth or that the media is letting the commie get away with it. Sorry for the rant, but I'm worried about our freedoms and this close-to-the-fort-politician doesn't give a warm bucket of spit about American and demands we give up our freedom.

Amen!

I happened to stumble across your blog, sir, and I like what you're doing with it. You are helping give a voice to what so many of us feel, but so rarely express. Most of us just sit around waiting for someone else to speak up -- you're the someone else that speaks. Thank you for doing so on your blog.
