    BAD-Gunshots from Mexico hit our City Hall

    Shots apparently fired from Juárez pelt City Hall, enter office - El Paso Times

    This is just too much. It's ******* me off and scaring the hell out of my wife.
    Again, I don't want this to turn into a witch hunt, due to being brown complected myself, but something has to be done.

    They are saying it was stray shots but ya know... I think someone was proving a point. Are they just reporting it this way to keep us from having to declare war? We need to do something now. The kidnappings are happening on this side now. (see EP times last week)

    This is not good. Time for hardening the windows facing Mexico. Just 1/2 mile from a war zone - I would definitely harden those windows.

    It's past time to harden the border me thinks.

    Geez. Stray gunfire eh... Seven shots hit the building. From that kind of range I find it hard to believe that "stray gunfire" could be that accurate.

    Time to warn the people on the border that they need to move back,B52 aircraft will begin carpet bombing a 2 mile wide buffer zone on the Mexico side which will be referred to as a free fire zone,any personnel or vehicles entering said zone will learn It's a free fire zone the hard way.

    Police said that an investigation into the shooting continues and that they would be contacting authorities in Juárez.
    I would say 50BMG should be a very effective contact, may even get their attention.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    We have Fort Bliss here but they, of course, are training for Afgan and such. In fact we will have another twelve thousand troops here by winter.

    We made time magazine, well the web version anyway.

    Why don't they train on the border? That would solve their training issues, and a whole host of other problems.

    It was probably from some of those automatic weapons they purchased from private sellers at Va gun shows.
