Had no ideal there was that many Mexicans up there...
What? Up here in what we call Mexico north??????


I swear to you this is a true story.

Wifey and I honeymooned in Mexico. One day we took a catamaran cruise down the coast about two hours south of Puerto Viarta. From there we hiked up into the mountains to a little town with no electricity and the water was gravity fed from a spring higher up.

In this little mountain town where nobody had shoes, there were wild dogs everywhere and the building were made of mud and grass, I met a man.

That man's brother lives in the suburb next to mine in Illinois.

Stats are out, online, available everywhere --

The states and urban areas with the tightest gun laws also have the highest rates of homicide by firearm. California leads the list, followed by Chicago, Wash. DC, Massachusetts.

Conclusion: "Shall not be infringed" is probably a good idea.

We know this, but the grabbers are always trying unsuccessfully, to link less guns=less homicides. The stats say otherwise. :stir

Well let's face it. If Gang Bangers started doing drive-bys in my neighborhood there are several people that would treat it like deer season and have a big time. The problem wouldn't continue long.
